RICHARD TUCKER BSc PGDip MSc SENr
FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR OF THE HUMAN PERFORMANCE LAB
It has been a great decision working with The Human Performance Lab for my fight preparation - the information I receive directly shapes my physical conditioning and nutrition strategies so that I am in the best shape of my life for each fight.
It was a pleasure to work with Richard and the HPL this year and his work with my athlete was second to none. He was professional, engaging and made him feel comfortable throughout the assessments. The data Richard was able to provide us with and the knowledge that he has to explain these results directly influenced our pre-season programme and nutrition strategy and is still guiding our routines now. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to any athlete or anyone looking for more in depth information and guidance on how to get better results faster from their training and nutrition. Thank you
Mental and physical well being is a non-negotiable for me to be a committed and successful father, husband and CEO. I first met Richard in March 2019 when I was stressed, overweight, lacking focus and filled with frustration but had a burning desire to get fit again and be able to compete as an endurance athlete again. Richard is a true professional, a consultant who takes the time to truly understand the full picture of your life and how to optimise the little time available to deliver the best results. Always flexible, engaging and thoughtful he combines the true art and science of health and performance coaching. I am now almost 12kgs lighter and fitter than I was in my 20s. I could not recommend him or the Human Performance Lab highly enough.
The approach used by Richard and the Human Performance Lab was extremely thorough and has allowed my clients to achieve exceptional results. A fantastic service led by Richard who has a knack of giving you clear direction from the data and making it a highly informative and enjoyable process. I would highly recommend using the HPL to anyone wanting to enhance their health or exercise performance.
