The Centre addresses two main themes;
- Identifying and improving community and/or service-based PA provision and
- Establishing physiological and biochemical responses and adaptations to exercise and PA (SARCA)
We focus on daily-life PA and structured exercise. Our focus is on ‘under-reached’ communities. This makes it especially relevant to contemporary public services, especially Public Health, Social Services and Education. Our academics draw on a range of areas – from Psychology to Physiology - to deliver insights. We offer a distinctive, innovative and effective approach to designing, delivering and evaluating tailor-made programmes.
Our approach is highly translational. We blend the best of science with best practice. This create a ‘best fit’ for potential users. Our approach supports individuals, groups and whole communities to become more physically active.
