Norwalk, CT—November 21, 2013—TMC announced today that Paul Robbins of STATS will provide a keynote address at the Fitness and Sports Technology (FAST) Expo to be held December 9, 2013, at the Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City, California. The event will provide expertise and insight about the flourishing market for fitness and sports technologies with a focus on the use of wearable, mobile and data tech.

“Data collection and analysis is becoming increasingly popular in the US.  However, the most important aspect is use of the data, I want to focus on what it means and how do you effect someone’s training based on in-depth data,” said Mr. Robbins.

Paul Robbins, director of elite development at STATS, will provide a keynote address at 11:30 am, entitled “No Stone Left Unturned – STATS and the Discovery and Analysis of Real-Time Player Game Data.”  During the keynote, Robbins will explore how the NBA, a host of flagship soccer teams from around the globe and other U.S. pro sports quantify and analyze every movement of live game action throughout an entire season with the installation of STATS SportVUPlayer Tracking technology.

Paul Robbins is one of the country’s leading experts on cardiovascular programming and metabolic assessments. Robbins has worked with some of the world's largest metabolic companies on product design and programming. He then developed the cardio programs and VO2 assessment programs for Athletes’ Performance and their new corporate division, Core Performance.  Athletes’ Performance clients include thousands of professional athletes from the NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB, and MLS, while Core Performance worked clients such as Intel and Google.  Paul has worked with and has developed his programs with professional and national teams around the world and brought this knowledge to Adidas to help in the first phases of MiCoach®. Through STATS, he now works with a variety of tracking and monitoring systems in the NBA, NFL and university market.

“Paul Robbins has an amazing background and forward thinking record in the sports and fitness technology verticals, and possesses a wealth of critical knowledge in the wearables space,” said Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO and conference chairman. “He will absolutely provide a valuable first-hand perspective on the current and future state of wearable, mobile and data technology, and we look forward to his keynote at FAST Expo this year.”
