Thijs Eijsvogels is trained in exercise physiology at the
Radboud University (PhD degree, NL), Hartford Hospital (postdoc,
USA) and Liverpool John Moores University (postdoc, UK). Thijs is
interested in the physiological and cardiac responses of the human
body to acute and chronic (endurance) exercise performance. His
research is focused on the benefits and potential deleterious
effects of exercise across the whole spectrum of physical activity:
from inactivity to excessive volumes of exercise. Thijs' work
combines the fields of physiology, cardiology and epidemiology and
studies are performed in the general population, cardiovascular
patients and athletes. His ultimate goal is to find the sweet spot
