• Welcome to the Chair of Training and Movement Science

    We conduct research and teach courses on sports and the fundamentals of human movement from the perspective of the natural sciences. Learn more about us on this Website!

  • Our Mission

    To investigate mechanisms that determine neuromuscular performance and how exercise can affect these mechanisms. With this knowledge, we develop innovative exercise interventions in health and disease.

  • Human Performance Research Centre (HPRC)

    The HPRC serves as a center for fundamental research and intervention studies, that address the prevention and treatment of major degenerative conditions associated with physical inactivity and aging as well as the optimization of athletic performance.

  • HPRC Teaching lab

    The HPRC teaching lab is one example of our innovative hands on teaching approach. Here students work with state of the art measurement processes, conduct exemplary experiments and learn to answer research questions by means of self-collected data. Thus, they experience the science of human movement and understand the link between theoretic knowledge and experiment.
