Science to Sport bridges the gap between scientific research and sports men and women in the field.
Utilising scientific tools and experience gained through research and practical involvement at the highest professional and scientific level, the experts at science to sport are able to provide athletes with scientifically validated methods and products which they can use to their advantage during training and competition.
Using these principles, we aim to maximise the adaptation to training.
Jarred Salzwedel completed his Honours degree in Sports Science at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in 2013. He is currently continuing his postgraduate work with his Masters degree at NMMU and is investigating training adaptations to differing high-intensity interval training programmes in cyclists.
Jarred's Sports Science background provides him with a sound understanding of training prescription, periodisation, strength and conditioning and athlete development. He has helped guide numerous cyclists to National and International success utilizing this knowledge.
He has raced both on the road and track at a National level in the Junior ranks which led to his interest in the science behind training and conditioning, as well as his passion to help athletes optimise their performance.
Jarred also lectured Coaching Sciences for the Human Movement Science Department at NMMU and worked as a physiology consultant for the NMMU High Performance Complex. He currently heads up the the performance testing of cyclists at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa.
