The Sports Science Strength and Conditioning Department within the HKSI provides comprehensive services such as testing, analysis, programme design and training monitoring to help coaches in planning for improvements in training. Athletes take part in scientific testing, strengthening programmes, and recovery strategies based on individual assessment.

Sports science officers, with Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist qualifications, will demonstrate state-of-the-art equipment such as environmental chamber, high speed giant treadmill for sprinters, and hyperbaric hyperoxia chamber.
