Human Performance Lab (HPL) is the incubator where Andrew and Dr Tom (Associate Professor, Sydney University) road test all things ‘human performance,’ before rolling them out to executive clients and incorporating in corporate, public and online programs.
The HPL evolved from regular monthly cycling meetings to what is now a fully-functioning research centre, producing evidence-based and public-based research.
The HPL is where we experiment, tinker, trial and toil – until we get it right. From nutrition principles including metabolic flexibility, ketosis, intermittent fasting and chasing the Holy Grail (losing fat and building muscle); to physical activity challenges like swimming the English Channel, running the North Face 100 or Seasonal Fitness; strategic recovery techniques including cold water therapy, cryotherapy and, yoga; through to sensory deprivation chambers and neurofeedback to alter physical and psychological state to induce flow and accelerate learning. The HPL keeps us on our toes, keeps us engaged, and ensures we practice what we preach.
