“Improving the physical condition of an athlete will always be as much about experience, feel and intuition as it is about scientific certainty. As long as a human being is at the centre of the complex system that is training load, recovery and adaptation, then sports science can only ever be a tool to help the coach lead the athlete down the right path. But what a tool.”
Sports science is an emerging discipline which applies scientific principles to understand factors associated with sporting performance or health and well-being. These may incorporate areas of physiology, psychology, motor control, bio-mechanics, nutrition, sports technology, anthropometry, kinanthropometry and performance analysis. The correct and timely application of which will improve your health and performance no matter how good or bad it is currently.
The sports science services we offer are about taking the valuable lessons learnt in laboratories and transferring those skills to the training and racing environment. in a word, it is about 'specificity'. This means measuring, analysing and preparing for the conditions you will face in your chosen event or race in the most specific way possible. after all, those events we all love to compete in are not held in urban laboratories but in parks, forests lakes and mountains - prepare for your success accordingly.
