“Deliver an intuitive system that automatically identifies precursors of burnout. We aim to reduce attrition, improve health and optimize performance in sport, defense, government services, and other related industries.”
When our founder Ronen Benin was a competitive swimmer, he noticed a distinct correlation between his quality of life, mental state, and overall performance. In order to effectively improve performance, Ronen discovered that it was more than just quality training that athletes need.
Ronen decided to create a precise monitored recovery plan for athletes. Their aim was to identify patterns in lifestyles that may be altered to reduce injury, illness, mental distress, and burnout. In the summer of 2013 Logit’s parent company, RightBlue Labs, was born.
