The Human Performance Unit is part of
School of Sport, Rehabilitation and Exercise Sciences at
the University of Essex.
The Human Performance Unit has looked after the needs of
athletes for over ten years and worked with sportsmen
and women from recreational to elite level with examples
including Olympic divers, full time skiers, a Paralympic
swimming gold medallist, professional squash players,
elite boxers, professional football teams and numerous
endurance athletes, to name just a few.
The HPU has grown to become one of the biggest units of
its kind in the U.K. and benefits from being able to
access academic staff working in the universities sports
science department, many of whom are leaders in their
field at the cutting edge of research. Our labs and
facilities are the best in the region and among the best
in the country.
Being from a science background means we never
compromise on quality and always ensure testing and
exercise prescription is provided to the highest
standards. However we still understand the needs of
athletes and as athletes ourselves can transfer the
academic knowledge into ‘real world’ results, helping
you to achieve peak performance.
