NSWIS Physiologists quantify the physiological characteristics and monitor the training response of athletes. This information is used to help guide coaches in training prescription, identify areas for potential improvement and implement training interventions that will optimise performance.

These adaptations include aerobic and anaerobic capacity, speed, power, agility, flexibility and body composition. Additionally, NSWIS physiologists implement additive components to an athlete’s preparation, including the use of hypoxic training (artificial and real altitude) and specific programs to adapt to environmental conditions such as heat and humidity.
