Support Services

Our Performance Support Team provide specialist support from a range of scientific disciplines to develop performance of our top athletes and teams here at Loughborough University, as well as visiting athletes. Our aligned, inter-disciplinary approach to athletic performance has helped to create an unrivalled sporting legacy.

As well as elite and professional sports people from a wide variety of sports, we also work with members of the public, keen amateur athletes, people taking on extreme challenges, and business people. We aim to provide cutting-edge support at the highest level, no matter your sport, background or goals.

We reached out to Loughborough University based on their work with other major sporting organisations, and the team provided us with clear, simple advice on what would be best for our riders. After testing at the beginning of the off-season period, both riders reported that the facilities and support which Loughborough provided was world-class.
