Most workouts are routine, but at the Athlete Lab, a new high-performance training and sports science center in Farmington Hills, the body and the mind get equal treatment.
The 13,000-square-foot facility, a collaboration between the Suburban Sports Group in Farmington Hills and 2SP Sports Performance in Madison Heights, is designed to provide progressive training, testing, and education to inspire and support an athlete’s peak physical and mental performance.
“We’re very excited about bringing these resources together to create a space to fully support the needs of today’s competitive athlete,” says Tom Anastos, CEO of Suburban Sports Group. “Our goal is to not only provide training and tools that will help athletes pursue their dreams and highest potential today, but also to help establish a set of physical and mental skills and lifestyle habits that will impact their lives long after their competitive playing days are over.”
Athlete Lab includes a host of offerings not normally found in a gym environment, such as a cognitive training zone, a mind gym classroom, study areas, and a physical therapy clinic.
The performance training space, meanwhile, features weight racks, Kaiser squat racks, FreeMotion cable columns, a dumbbell zone, and a skating treadmill, while a turfed area is equipped with Torque Tank4 sleds, sprint lanes, a medicine ball zone, a battle rope zone, and open space for functional movement exercises.
