Spinners rejoice! Wahoo’s new research-oriented facility opens in Boulder, Colo. today and aims to up the ante on the company’s training products and philosophy.

Expert coaches and scientists will lead the center, which will also stable Wahoo’s pro athletes. Work officially began at the facility this morning at 9 a.m. local time.

“[We’re] working with different ‘Wahooligans,’ some of our sponsored athletes, and elite professional athletes in helping them be able to train more effectively and get the most out of what they do,” Wahoo Head of Sports Science Neal Henderson says in a short video introducing the center. Henderson went on to say that the group will work on both hardware and software products for the company. For instance, it could help inform the development and drive new content on Wahoo X, its recently-consolidated subscription training app . Simultaneously, the team will almost certainly apply scrutiny to the brand’s popular indoor trainers, and how they interact with the rest of the Wahoo ecosystem including their excellent GPS computers .

The facility will combine research and staff expertise with testing through physiology, biomechanics of movement, nutrition, and sports psychology, Wahoo said in a release.

Henderson will lead the team, which will also include Dr. Ginger Gottschall, director of applied research; Mac Cassin, senior sports scientist; Rupert Harold, operations manager; and Jeff Hoobler, strength and movement specialist.
