Physiology: Applied Performance Practitioner

This course will enable you to deliver the essentials of physiological support to the athletes and coaches you’re working with. All too often a physiologist can find themselves stuck in a lab or out in the the training environment, measuring things but having no impact. 

In this programme you’ll learn the essential areas to understand and focus on when you’re discussing support with athletes and coaches. You’ll explore the key insights that you should be looking for from training, performance and a host of key areas, to a gold standard method so that you are equipped to feel confident in creating impact.
