Featured story

At our Performance Clinic we offer specialist support tailored to your needs and goals, whether you are an elite athlete or just starting out.

How we can help you

High-quality research undertaken in the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences feeds into the work of the Performance Clinic, which means our advice and support reflects the latest developments in the field.

Our staff have extensive experience working with elite athletes and know exactly what it takes for an athlete to stay at the very top of their game. We take an athlete-centred approach and can create bespoke programmes for individuals and teams.

Our services include: physiological assessments of performance, nutritional analysis and planning, sports psychology, biomechanical assessments, acclimatisation training for any environment, and specialist training to offset mental fatigue.

We can also support you if you are returning to sport, want to assess your current fitness levels or get advice on how to improve your fitness in a safe way.
