Terry Gyde

International Cycling Coach, Champion Training Systems

"Throughout my coaching career the Sport Science Centre has provided me with the most up to date sports testing, professional feedback and assistance that I required to get the absolute maximum out of the athlete, whether they were potential World Champions or club or recreational riders."

As a result, some of the cyclists Terry has coached and been tested at the Sport Science Centre have gone on to become Olympic Champions, Olympic Medallists, Olympic and World Record Holders, World Champions, Commonwealth Champions, Junior World Champions, Oceania and National Champions.

"I am quite sure that without the services of the Sport Science Centre many of these results would not have been acheived."

"I've been attending the Sport Science Centre for the past three years for sports testing. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging. They explain the procedures and how they interpret the results. My coach finds the test results really useful when preparing my mountain bike training programme, and we use them to monitor my progress.

I find it motivating to see the changes in my results at each testing. I'd recommend the centre to anyone who needs expert technical input and advice to support their sports training programme."
