In over 30 years of activity at Formula 1 circuits, Formula Medicine has developed unique and innovative research projects, demonstrating that performance results on-track derive mainly from mental performance, rather than muscular performance.
From these studies, Mental Economy Training® was born, a new training programme that evaluates and improves mental functions. The goal is not just to increase mental performance, but also to reduce energy consumption – two characteristics that distinguish the best athletes in every sporting discipline, and which Formula Medicine, unique in this aspect, can objectify and analyse in an integrated manner through the use of its proprietary instruments, algorithms and methods.
At Formula Medicine’s headquarters in Viareggio, the world’s first Mental Economy Gym® was created, a unique structure entirely dedicated to mental training, where up to twenty people can simultaneously train all psychophysical skills. The variety of tests and training introduced by Mental Economy Training® allows athletes of all levels to improve abilities such as concentration and focused attention, and to face competition with a free mind and relaxed muscles, even in situations of maximum psychological pressure.
