Sports Science Testing

Sport science testing helps athletes identify strengths and weaknesses and measure how their bodies respond to different training stimuli. For the last ten years we have been helping athletes of all levels achieve more by the application of sports science testing and support.   more


For schools HPU lab sessions provide an opportunity for college and sixth form students to apply their sport science knowledge in a practical lab environment. The HPU also offers G&T sessions for aspiring athletes to participate in exercise tests and have individual feedback on strengths and weaknesses.   more



For all athletes getting the dietary intake right can mean performance gains, improved recovery and better racing, especially in endurance events like Ironman triathlon. Clients range from world ranked athletes to weekend warriors.  more


Bike Fitting

Our Retul 3D motion capture bike fitting system uses infra-red LEDS placed on the rider at specific biomechanical reference points. A 3D scanner measures the location of each LED 29 times per second giving accuracy to within a millimetre.   more
