Strength and Conditioning Suite

The Strength and Conditioning suite is a part of our purpose built labs designed to support physiology, biomechanics, nutrition, and strength & conditioning.

Our facilities are designed to support these areas and are equipped with a range of equipment to facilitate learning, research and consultancy in sport, exercise and nutritional sciences. We have a strong team of researchers and practitioners who have the necessary expertise and are committed to providing support.

The Strength and Conditioning Suite supports the delivery of undergraduate programmes as well as postgraduate taught and research programmes. This equipment also supports consultancy and knowledge transfer and is used to deliver our strength testing and programme design service, led by our S&C academics/practitioners.
