Boosting the Best at the US Air Force Academy Human Performance Lab
On November 1st, 2019, FOX 21 News reporters spent the day at the United States Air Force Academy to experience a variety of aspects of life at USAFA. As part of this event, two reporters visited the USAFA Human Performance Lab and were put through the paces to help them understand how the resources available to USAFA cadets athletes translate to performance gains on the field.
A large portion of the coverage focusses specifically on GyroStim. The entire segment covering all of the resources available in the USAFA HPL, including GyroStim, is online at this link..
