New performance gym launches in Bath
BY Pete Hayman

A new £100,000 performance gym has been unveiled at the University of Bath, which aims to help boost the preparations of London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls.

The university has worked with the English Institute of Sport (EIS); Sport England; TASS; and UK Sport to provide and fund the project, which is an extension to an existing venue.

An integrated testing platform to provide in-depth physical analysis; video feedback system; and a system providing feedback on strength and power outputs are on offer at the gym.

Athletes across a range of sports, including modern pentathlon, swimming, beach volleyball and tennis, are expected to benefit from the new facility.

Michael Jamieson, the 100m and 200m breaststroke swimmer, said: "It will be great to work in a gym that has been purpose built for the needs of high performance athletes."

Professor Kevin Edge, the university's deputy vice-chancellor, added: "While the vast majority of our sports facilities are open to all, the Performance Gym is specifically for use by high performance athletes training at the University."
