Sport Science Testing


The hpc is a leader in sport specific physiological testing. Athletes are assessed according to the latest sport specific protocol in order to determine the current baseline for the player or team. This includes cardio-respiratory endurance, muscular endurance, speed, agility, explosive power, flexibility, body composition, VO2 Max and lactate testing. Feedback includes identification of strengths and weaknesses as well as advice on how to get the individual or team to perform at their peak.


Based on the testing results, our strength and conditioning specialists and sport scientists can assist with the following:

  • Periodized strength and conditioning programmes
