KANNAPOLIS, N.C. — The N.C. Research Campus wants 10 men who will help answer a question about exercise.

The Salisbury Post reported that the men will live in a sophisticated testing chamber at the Kannapolis campus and earn $400. The research involves whether exercise boosts metabolism
throughout the day or just while a person sweats.

The Appalachian State University Human Performance Lab and the University of North Carolina Nutrition Research Institute are doing the research.

The study needs 10 healthy males and five alternates, ages 20 to 35, to eat, sleep and exercise in the metabolic chamber at the institute.

Subjects will live separately for four nonconsecutive days in the chamber, which includes a bed, bathroom, computer with high-speed internet and DVD player.

Testing starts Sept. 21 and ends Dec. 3.
