Psycho-physical well-being as the basis of athletic performance, regeneration and recovery are more and more widespread concepts in the world of sports.

The HCB Alto Adige Alperia relied on Starpool’s experience and on the support of Doctor Thuile for the creation of the new Performance Center. An innovative space inside the Palaonda in Bolzano where, after training and matches, players of the team can restore their correct physiological and biological values, recovering and, above all, improving their strength.

And that’s not it. Thanks to the multimedia contents of Mindfulness and breathing techniques provided with Zerobody, the Performance Center helps athletes to work on mental focus as well – a key factor to achieve perfect results on ice.

The Performance Center displays an innovative format, dedicated to athletes’ recovery and to performance enhancing. Wellness traditional benefits – like the ones deriving from the high temperatures of the sauna – combine with the mental and physical regeneration achieved thanks to the Dry Float Therapy on Zerobody and with the effects of cryotherapy. The collaboration between doctor Thuile and Starpool resulted in the development of special scientific protocols to guide athletes in the correct use of the equipment.

In this way, players enjoy the combined action of sauna, floatation and cryotherapy, enhancing the effects of the ancient formula of well-being “heat, water and rest”.
