Revved Up Research Group

Our innovative research program focuses on translating research knowledge about physical activity into practical guidelines and interventions that foster full and meaningful participation. 

Who We Are

The Revved Up Research Group operates out of the School of Kinesiology and Health Studies at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. We are co-led by Dr. Amy Latimer-Cheung, an associate professor and Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Physical Activity Promotion and Disability, and Dr. Jennifer Tomasone, an assistant professor at in Health Studies at Queen’s University and the Knowledge Translation Lead of the Canadian 24-hour Movement Guidelines. 

In The News

Queen’s University researchers Drs. Robert Ross and Jennifer Tomasone have helped develop the first ever 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Adults that show what a healthy use of 24 hours looks like. The guidelines are unique because they integrate the three movement behaviours (physical activity, sedentary, and sleep behaviours) for those aged 18-64 and 65 and older.
