Fitness technology company Wahoo has announced the launch of its proprietary Sports Science facility in Boulder, Colorado.

The facility will further the company’s goal of “building the better athlete in all of us” by combining research, expertise, and testing through physiology, biomechanics of movement, nutrition and sport psychology to deliver hardware innovations and training solutions across Wahoo’s physical and digital products.

Wahoo said it will be at the forefront of driving and informing future innovations, leveraging expert insights and analytics focusing on personalised training, data insights, knowledge and sports science protocol to inform the world of connected fitness.

Wahoo CEO Mike Saturnia said: “We’re excited to be launching Wahoo’s new Sports Science Centre, which is dedicated to enhancing athletic performance by integrating leading-edge sports science with our comprehensive ecosystem of products and services.
