“The Checkmylevel tests showed the readiness of an athlete for the games.” Petri Kettunen, Head Coach, Finland Men’s National Floorball
Petri Kettunen, Finland men’s national floorball team head coach of the 2016 world champions, made use of the data given by Checkmylevel during the important tournament. He wanted information about his athletes’ performance to find out their readiness for the games. Based on the results, he was able to make changes to his team’s line-up.

They started using Checkmylevel at a preparatory training camp, and then continued throughout the tournament week, doing the test every morning before breakfast. With the results, the head coach and the medical staff were able to monitor the athletes’ performance and the actual state of their body. The athletes themselves were not allowed to see their test results.
“The tests gave us the confirmation and assurance we were looking for about the state of the athlete’s body. During the week, some players fell sick, and Checkmylevel spotted these cases. The readings were extremely useful – with their help we knew in advance who needs to focus on getting better and take a day off,” Petri says.
Understanding the training needs

According to Petri, using the product on a daily basis throughout the year would give the greatest benefits to athletes and coaches. The data would tell them how the athlete’s body responds to and endures different modes of training, also providing them with a better understanding of the training needs.
