Wellington Phoenix FC is a professional football club based in Wellington, New Zealand, that competes in the Australian A-League. The team has been using the MX3 Hydration Testing System Pro as a regular part of training and competition.
The Wellington Phoenix FC competes in the A-League competition, which takes place during the warmer summer season. In hot and humid conditions, ensuring the athletes are adequately hydrated pre-, during and post training and competition is important to optimise performance,” says Weijie Lim, the head of Strength & Conditioning for Wellington Phoenix.
The training team for Wellington incorporates the MX3 LAB hydration-testing system to gather a full picture of players’ hydration status and health.
"The MX3 hydration testing system is a fast and reliable tool providing immediate feedback within seconds,” Lim adds. “The portable MX3 device paired with their user-friendly app allows practitioners the ability to track hydration status for each athlete across the entire season. The MX3 device has become a staple in our football programme to elevate performance.”
