Wahoo opens Sports Science facility in Colorado

Published August 9, 2022

ATLANTA (BRAIN) — Wahoo announced Tuesday the formation of a proprietary Sports Science facility in Boulder, Colorado, that will be led by coaches, sports scientists, and specialists. The fitness technology company's aim is to become the "global leader in smart fitness and training."

The team is led by Wahoo's head of sports science, Neal Henderson. Other members include Dr. Ginger Gottschall, director of applied research; Mac Cassin, senior sports scientist; Rupert Harold, operations manager; and Jeff Hoobler, strength and movement specialist.

"I'm thrilled to be leading the Wahoo Sports Science team as we grow and expand the applications of sport science within Wahoo hardware and software ecosystem," Henderson said. "We have assembled a fabulous team of knowledgeable, experienced, passionate team members working out of our world-class sports science facility in Boulder, and we are excited to continue to help build the better athlete in all of us."

The Sports Science facility follows the recent unveiling of Wahoo's multi-channel app subscription — Wahoo X — which was created by the Sports Science team. Wahoo X allows access to two unique training apps through one account: SYSTM and RGT. SYSTM offers integrated structured workouts, and RGT is more virtual cycling focused.

The Wahoo Sports Science Center team also hosts The Knowledge podcast from its Boulder facility, providing listeners short, informative episodes with a deep dive into sports science.
