Sport & Exercise Science: How a Sport & Exercise Scientist Improves Performance With Dr Ralph Manders From University of Surrey

June 28 @ 14:00 - 15:00




In this Sport & Exercise Science session, Dr Ralph Manders, Lecturer in Exercise Physiology at University of Surrey, will offer an interactive insight for students into How a Sport & Exercise Scientist Improves Performance.

Performance is a term we all use regularly in sport. It doesn’t matter if you play football once a week or if you are aiming for a gold medal at the next Olympics, we all want to improve our performance.

But what does this actually mean to improve your performance? Is it all about training, nutrition, injury prevention or psychology? In this talk we will look at the different roles that someone can have with sport and exercise science and how they can support not just athletes but also people with illnesses to become better, stronger, faster and healthier.
