The School's strength and conditioning facility is housed within the National Indoor Athletics Centre (NIAC).
It has four weightlifting platforms with integrated squat racks, allowing the students to learn a range of key lifts and develop their knowledge of the coaching process.
The room provides an excellent environment for learning and teaching, with a 42" LCD screen equipped with Apple TV to offer instantaneous feedback during practical lectures. This enables students to actively engage with both self and peer-assessment within the coaching environment.
The facility is used by a number of athletes from the University's Focus Sport teams, who work closely with Cardiff Metropolitan University strength and conditioning coaches.
A separate strength and power diagnostics gym enables in-depth analysis of athletic performance. The facility enables researchers and practitioners alike to determine an athlete's level of performance for a range of strength qualities. It also allows practitioners to assess muscular performance within a rehabilitative setting.
It includes a custom-built weightlifting platform, with the ability to embed force plates into the floor to collect force-time data. Additional state-of-the-art equipment includes an isokinetic dynamometer, enabling a range of research projects to be conducted from both a performance and injury prevention perspective.
