The study was done using the trainees at the Zippers Club as the test sample. Cardiac patients who regularly train with Zippers Club and run Half marathons were tested against sample populations of regular marathoners who are not cardiac patients and also cardiac patients who do not run marathons regularly.
The study found that members of Zippers Club scored better on all fitness parameters over the other two sample populations.
