The Centre for Sports Medicine and Human Performance

The CSMHP focuses on integrative aspects of human physiology, biomechanics and sport and exercise psychology.

Researchers in the Centre seek to further an understanding of the regulation and adaptation of the cardiovascular, respiratory and neuromuscular systems to exercise and training, as well as the physiological, biomechanical and psychological limitations to human sport performance and exercise tolerance.

The Centre also offers a range of sport science assessment services, including maximal oxygen uptake and lactate threshold testing. A full range of respiratory assessments is also available, including screening for exercise-induced asthma.



Extensive Research shows that POWERbreathe Inspiratory Muscle Training helps to improve performance & endurance by using resistance training to exercise and strengthen the muscles we use to breathe.

POWERbreathe is fast becoming the must have training, warm-up & cool down partner for World Class Athletes including: Runners, Cyclists, Swimmers, Rowers, Triathletes, Canoeists, Mountaineers, Boxing & Martial Arts, as well as in top level Team Sports including: Rugby, Football, Basketball, Field & Ice Hockey in over 40 countries worldwide - already.

POWERbreathe training is scientifically proven & is increasingly being talked about by leading Sports & Fitness coaches as "the most effective 5 minutes of training that an athlete or fitness enthusiast can do".


Physio Breathe

"The science of better breathing"
Also brought to you by Prof Alison McConnell, Physiobreathe provides evidence-based guidance on the "theory and practice" of respiratory muscle training in the clinical setting. In particular, it provides guidance on how to apply "functional" training techniques to the respiratory muscles of patients with a wide range of conditions. Evidence-based benefits for patients include, improvements in dyspnoea, exercise tolerance and quality of life. The techniques will therefore be of interest to the following:

  • Primary and secondary care physicians
  • Physiotherapists
  • Nurses
  • Rehabilitation professionals
  • Exercise scientists
  • Academic clinical teachers
  • Expert patients
