Welcome to the TIE Lab


The main objective of the TIE Lab is to understand the psychosocial determinants of physical activity adoption and maintenance and to promote this health behaviour through interventions. Our research and interventions are grounded in theoretical approaches to physical activity and health promotion among adults particularly those with chronic conditions (e.g., cancer, cardiovascular disease, and disability).

The core values of the TIE Lab are:

  • BALANCE To have awareness and skills to have a healthy integration of the facets of our lives.
  • COLLABORATION To build and maintain relationships within and outside the lab through respect, compassion, and trust.
  • COMPASSION To be aware of and to actively promote the well-being of yourself and others.
  • CURIOUSITY To actively approach and engage situations and people with interest and a critical perspective.
  • GROWTH To be motivated to progress to be the individuals and team we strive to be.
  • RESPECT To acknowledge the inherent worth, needs, perspectives, and differences of oneself and others.
  • TRUST To build and maintain the belief we can count on one another.
