John Wakefield   Science to Sport

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.
