In the late 1990’s a pioneering Italian doctor of sport psychology, Dr. Bruno Demichelis, began using biofeedback technology to monitor the AC Milan football team to optimize their performance on and off the field. The team’s success was so profound in 2009, the Chelsea Football Club hired Dr. Demichelis to build a peak performance facility for their players. They won the Premier League titles 2 out of the next 3 years, the FA cup that year, and the Champions league 2 years later.
Without a doubt, peak performance technology is here to stay.
