We are pleased to support Elevate by becoming the sponsor of the Physical Activity for Health and Wellbeing seminar and look forward to a B2B event which brings together all those best placed to tackle physical inactivity." said Andrea Bianchi, Technogym’s UK Managing Director.

Over 100 speakers from across academia, industry, healthcare and performance will be represented including Public Health England, Active Luton, University College London Hospitals, National Trust, SLM, Sport and Recreation Alliance, GlaxoSmithKline Human Performance Lab, British Cycling, Nuffield Health, EIS, Sheffield Hallam, Loughborough University and many more.

Prof Fares Haddad, ISEH Clinical Director said “The ISEH aims to translate between elite sport, amateur sports and exercise prescription; with the ultimate aim of both health and performance gains. We are pleased to support Elevate because we believe London is the best place for the major stakeholders to learn more about the ways in which exercise, health and performance connect from each other.’’
