    Cyclist being assessed in the Boardman Performance Centre Health and Fitness Suite

    PHYSIOLOGY

    Our physiology provision is built on the cornerstones of Fitness and of Health. Our goal is to get under the bonnet of your performance, to understand how your body creates your physical capacity and capabilities, but also to ensure your body is ready to work effectively and safely.

    HOW WE ACHIEVE THIS

    For the cycling performer, we take an integrated mouth-to-muscle look at aerobic and anaerobic fitness capacity, assessing how cardiorespiratory capacity (heart and lungs) interacts with muscular conditioning and mechanical efficiency to produce power at the pedal. These are relevant to any type of rider, but for the competitor, we take a more in-depth into the diagnostic profile to identify specific strengths, weaknesses and implications for training and event preparation. All of our assessments include aspects of health screening, which are designed to identify and minimise risk.
