From Birmingham to Docklands

Chris Shaw thinks Docklands is a great place to live.

Last year he and his partner Angie moved to Australia from Birmingham in the UK, after Chris secured a four-year contract with Victoria University (VU).

Upon arriving in Melbourne the pair had only two weeks to find a place to live and they quickly agreed on Docklands.

Chris and Angie now live in NewQuay and Chris said they chose Docklands as their new Australian home because it was such a convenient location.  

“It’s close to everywhere in Melbourne,” Chris said.

Chris is an exercise enthusiast and loves the fact that he is able to cycle to and from Docklands easily.

He cycles to work everyday, travelling down the bike path to VU in Footscray.

Chris works at the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Active Living (ISEAL) at VU and is involved in a study looking at high intensity interval training (HIT).

This form of exercise involves short bursts of repeated high intensity training.

“The advantage of this exercise is that you can substantially reduce the time commitment of exercise but get large improvements in health and fitness,” Chris said.

Chris is currently looking for participants to take part in a HIT research study at ISEAL.

He is looking for participants aged under 40 who do not regularly exercise.

Chris said he hoped people’s new year resolutions to get fit might encourage them to take part in the study.

Participants need to be available for a few hours on two consecutive mornings.
