The problem

We were looking for a software platform that could help us balance a hybrid approach to the prescription and performance monitoring of both on-field and gym-based training in a League of Ireland team environment.

The solution

RYPT allowed us to balance a hybrid model of training (i.e. merging part-time & full-time environments) to ensure that all players were equally prepared for the demands of the sport and to ensure that all of their needs were fulfilled. RYPT was extremely time efficient and allowed us to visualise how our training impacted players’ well-being & performance, helping us balance performance and recovery.

What we love

RYPT was extremely effective for prescribing and monitoring on-pitch and gym-based training. It also facilitated the longitudinal tracking of player well-being, injury, and illness. RYPT aided our decision-making process for training and performance to ensure that we could make data-informed decisions that would aid our performance. The resource library was also extremely beneficial for adding educational content based on training, nutrition and recovery so that the players had the answers to all their questions at their fingertips.
