CHANHASSEN, Minn., April 6, 2021 -- At a time where young athletes are looking for more opportunities and spaces to train for their sport, Life Time, the nation's premier omnichannel healthy lifestyle brand, today announced that it has partnered with GameFace Training to offer sports performance training at Life Time Sport Winter Park in Eden Prairie and Life Time New Hope.
GameFace is remodeling part of the 250,000 square feet at Life Time Sport Winter Park, the former home of the Minnesota Vikings training facility, to offer a state-of-the-art space for athletic training with three football fields, strength and recovery rooms, and specialized equipment for a variety of sports. A new turf and training space has also been added at Life Time New Hope for GameFace.
"We are thrilled for this new partnership with GameFace to offer exceptional performance training for Minnesota athletes of all ages at our state-of-the-art spaces," Life Time Senior Vice President of New Business Development Brian Everson says. "We've long heard a desire from our members and the public to offer targeted athletic training to complement our array of personal training programming."
Established in 2012 by highly proficient athletic strength and conditioning expert DeVentri Jordan, GameFace Training uses top-tier sports performance equipment, a comprehensive sports training methodology, advanced instruction, and highly credentialed, and certified coaches to help athletes achieve their optimal performance. Recently, GameFace Training launched a relationship with VertiMax, the world leader in sports performance, functional, and rehabilitative training systems to provide its high-end performance training equipment.
"GameFace is a performance-based training solution that helps our athletes achieve their best and reach optimal sports performance," says Jordan. "Partnering with the first-class Life Time team puts us in an unmatched position to provide an unparalleled sports training experience in Minnesota."
Jordan has trained hundreds of college D1 and thousands of high school athletes, along with numerous professional athletes. GameFace has also added former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Todd Bouman and Atlanta Falcons and University of Minnesota Defensive Tackle standout Ra'Shede Hageman as coaches to its staff this year.
Beyond Minnesota, GameFace Training will also expand to South Florida to offer performance training at Life Time Boca Raton in the summer of 2021. Additional locations will be added at Life Time locations across the country.
