    Our philosophy is to provide a combined approach to delivery across a number of services; with lifestyle, strength & conditioning, physiotherapy and sports massage professionals working closely to support individuals in balancing university life with your sporting aspirations. 

    Brookes Perform

    In 2015 we launched our dedicated performance area, which offers a performance gym and expert strength & conditioning coaches.

    Brookes Perform supports our TASS athletes, Sports Scholars, and TEAMBrookes teams, but our services can be accessed by anyone via our open sessions by booking sessions for yourself, or a team.
