The Founder

FABIO MICOLI
Recovery Expert | Sports Experimenter
Pragmatic innovator, product engineer, karate black belt, trail runner and experimenter in the practices of yoga and meditation.
Fabio’s mission is to discover the secrets to maintaining performance and preserving fitness throughout life.
As Founder and CEO at QRYO Performance Forever, Fabio develops unique tools for sports recovery.
Born in Udine (Italy), his life path leads him to live 10 years abroad, to graduate in Engineering from the University of Cambridge and become…
…in 2014 Associate Director in a London-based engineering practice, world leader in the design of complex buildings.
Karate practitioner and avid experimenter of sport in all its forms, after several knee and hip injuries, in 2016  Fabio decides to leave his already successful job career in London to follow his true passion: searching for the secret to preserving fitness throughout life. 
He returns to Italy the same year and begins his journey in the world of recovery physiology. 
He starts off by expanding his knowledge on the subject and studying the main authors in the fields of fitness and performance. He experiments on himself all the techniques of physical recovery he learns along the way, to finally reach the conclusion that no protocol used by teams or athletes is either complete or based on scientific grounds.
The field of muscle recovery is still young and there is little information available, which is mostly based on anachronistic practices or passing trends. They all lack reliable scientific grounds. 
Fabio wants to go all the way and gets in touch with Pietro Enrico di Prampero, Emeritus Professor at the University of Udine, a world-renown expert in the fields of Sports Medicine. 
He begins his journey in the world of scientific research, working directly alongside the best sports physiologists of Prof. di Prampero’s team. 
The results from the research are verified by the tests performed with élite athletes and with their fitness coaches. The first protocols based on solid scientific grounds are perfected with Serie A teams, measuring directly the effects of recovery on performance. 
After 18 months of continuous research, Fabio discovers the first secret of muscle recovery: the optimal protocol for cryotherapy by cold water immersion. And here’s the revolution: he invents the QRYO Portable Ice Bath, the only tool on the market that enables athletes to practice cryotherapy following a truly effective procedure, the QRYO Protocol.
The products by QRYO start to help athletes achieve results never imagined before in terms of physical well-being and performance over time.
In 2019, Fabio continues his search for the secrets of recovery by introducing the QRYO Recovery Bed, which utilises an internationally patented mechanism. The QRYO Protocol for recovery is completed by integrating the principles of preservation of joint mobility and the techniques for improving the quality of post-workout rest.
In this way, Fabio widens the vision of the company, which today adopts an all-encompassing approach towards preserving maximum sports performance over time.QRYO is the European leader in the development of recovery technologies and helps the most demanding athletes from all over the world improve their performance every day.
