Each of the high performance equipment in the center is fitted with 3D cameras, motion sensors and digital screens and in each of them an athlete can check 3D imaging of his own body and his or her body equilibrium and other functional aspects real time. The Training Centre is no alien to Top Footballing Countrys and Football Clubs who use it regularly to enhance the performance of their players.
