"I have learnt so much about how my hormones affect me… it’s about understanding what I can do to make sure that they [PMS symptoms] don’t negatively affect my training or games."
“Orreco provides me and my coach with customized strategies based on my own data so I can work with, and not against, my natural physiology. It's smarter training for better performance.”

"Being an Olympic Bronze Medalist in 3k SC, 1988, and coach to world-class athletes, I know that training alone is not sufficient in the modern day to gain a competitive edge. That’s why we at OTCE, have enlisted the Orreco team, due to their increasing reputations as high-performance sports scientists, physiologists and sports haematologist providers. Their service enables us to limit the number of training days lost to overtraining, illness and infection. Although we are currently working on improving the testing protocols prior to altitude and heat preparation camps, the most exciting period lies ahead as the team prepare to launch a new portal that can generate real-time results and potentially predict performance. A tool any coach seeking an edge will want."
"FitrCoach is like nothing I've ever seen before... For teams or squads it's a really good way of managing different training groups and intensities to get the best out of female athletes, taking into account the menstrual cycle. It will help coaches individualize plans and let athletes recover when they need to and train hard on the right days."
“The FitrWoman app is an essential download for our players and all female athletes. We have heard anecdotal evidence for many years relating to the effects of the menstrual cycle on player training, performance and recovery. We are now delighted to officially endorse the FitrWoman app, which will provide our players with key tips and insights, while also providing further understanding around the challenges associated with the menstrual cycle.”

"With 5 sports to train for, recovery is one of the most important priorities, and through the monitoring of my blood work this has helped aid the application of recovery strategies to my individual needs, helping me recover faster than my competitors, giving me the edge."
"The routine blood tests and interpreted results provide me with crucial health markers, which allow me and the support team to see areas of improvements, and whether I am doing everything I can to maximize my recovery and therefore my performance potential. In the last few years it has helped me stay on top of illness, which I used to suffer severely from over the winter periods. This prevents me from missing vital training over these months."
"Due to the busy schedule of F1 with travel, PR events and racing all over the world it is important to make the most of all the training you do, which is why Orreco has worked so well as I know, just like the car, what I need to do to maintain peak condition throughout the season."
