Fitness Services

The University of Roehampton in London has a team of qualified sports scientists available to give comprehensive advice on all aspects of fitness, exercise performance training. Our health and fitness services are suitable for amateur through to elite/professional sports men and women looking to better their performance.

What we do

There are three main physiological components of endurance performance:

  • A high maximal aerobic capacity (high VO2 max)
  • Being able to sustain a high percentage of your max without accumulating lactate (high lactate threshold)
  • Being efficient in transferring power to the pedals or stride with little wasted energy (economy)

Our London team will take you through your paces in our high tech facilities, helping to identify where – and how – you can extend these three components of peak performance. In addition, all of these components can be compromised with exercise in the heat. We therefore also offer services aimed at reducing this decrement (Heat Acclimation Services).
