- InterventionsThe exercise intervention will cover a 6-week period in which the participant will run under supervision of a licensed running trainer twice a week, and independently once a week. The participants will run at moderate intensity. Each running session lasts one hour and includes warm-up, running, and cooling-down. The participants in the control condition (waiting list) receive the exercise intervention after six week of waiting - when the participants in the experimental condition have completed the exercise intervention.
- Primary outcomeWork-related fatigue (measured with three indicators: emotional exhaustion/overall fatigue/need for recovery)
- Secondary outcomeWork ability, (work-related) self-efficacy, sleep quality, cognitive functioning, and aerobic fitness. In addition, weekly single item measures of employees’ well-being and exercise activities/experiences will be collected during the intervention period.
- TimepointsT0 (baseline): primary and secondary outcomes.
T1 to T6 (every week during the 6 week exercise intervention period): single item measures of employee well-being, exercise activities and exercise experiences (only for the intervention group).
T7 (immediately after the intervention): primary outcomes, secondary outcomes and single item measures of employee well-being
T8 (six weeks after the intervention, only for the intervention group): primary outcomes, secondary outcomes and single item measures of employee well-being
T9 (twelve weeks after the intervention, only for the intervention group): primary outcomes, secondary outcomes and single item measures of employee well-being

- Brief summaryThe objective of this study is to evaluate to what extent an exercise intervention is effective in reducing work-related fatigue among employees. We will use an experimental design in which participants will be randomly allocated to either a 6-week exercise intervention (experimental condition, n=60) or a waiting list (control condition, n=60). The control condition receives the exercise intervention after 6 weeks - when the experimental condition has completed the exercise intervention. The participants of this study are employees experiencing high levels of work-related fatigue.
