Porsche recognises that the most important component of any vehicle is the driver. With this in mind, the Porsche Human Performance Centre, based at the Porsche Experience Centre Silverstone, provides a sports science laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art training equipment from official equipment partner, Matrix Fitness.

With the renewal of this partnership, Matrix will be introducing their new MED CE Adjustable Pulley, the Matrix Mega Double Rack and functional training toolsinto the purpose-built training and testing facility which includes a sports science laboratory and heat chamber, used for acclimatisation training.

Matt Pengelly, Managing Director at Johnson Health Tech UK, adds: “Working with Porsche has been a hugely exciting and collaborative partnership for us. They have one of the most advanced training and testing centres in the world, with other elite teams coming to their site in order to use their facilities.

The fact that we get to work with the best is testament to the quality of our equipment and programming. We support teams at the highest level, and work with the Porsche HPC team to ensure that their drivers and staff, as well as visiting elite athletes and teams, reach their best potential.”

The Porsche Human Performance laboratory offers physiological analysis of performance to measure output, track progress and maintain precision in training. All testing is performed using the most appropriate mode of exercise for the user, one of which is the MatrixTF50 XIR foldable treadmillwhich is also used for the laboratory testing services and heat acclimation training.

Eliot Challifour, Human Performance Centre Manager, explains “Our services are delivered by experts with a rare combination of academic qualifications in sport and exercise science, coaching and experience working at the highest level in motor sport.

The extensive range from Matrix providesthe Human Performance Centre with the optimal environment for testing and training clients from all sporting backgrounds in the fields of endurance, strength and conditioning, heat acclimation and sport rehabilitation.

Challifour continues “Motorsport is a team sport, and as well as the drivers, Matrix have been able to support the whole team at the Porsche Human Performance Centre. Every person in the team contributes a vital cog to ensure a well-oiled machine, and all of these people need to be performing at their peak, under pressure and sometimes in high temperature environments. The whole team works as an engine, all elements have a vital input and therefore must all be performing at their optimum.”
