It is an exciting time for us down at the Foothills Acceleration and Sports Training location on 7th Street and Glendale! We have finally finished our renovations and the construction of beautiful additions to our facility. Overall, we have added over 1000 sq. ft. of total training area, converted 1400 sq. ft. of our old training room to state-of-the-art field turf, gave everything a fresh coat of paint, and have plenty of new toys (equipment) for everyone to use.
We first became interested in expansion during the summer of 2014. Our training space was beginning to feel a little claustrophobic as college athletes returned home to train, hopping in with high school athletes who were also out of school and wanting to continue their training through the summer. Things got hectic as we were running out of equipment for everyone to use. We decided enough was enough—we needed new equipment and more space.
During 2015, we searched for a site to expand our business without moving too far from our existing location. We were still confined to our smaller space when the next summer came along, once again bringing a large number of athletes and limited space. As fate would have it, the neighboring business decided to move out, leaving the suite right next to us wide open. We jumped at the chance to knock down that wall and take over their space, while still being able to stay at our original location. We took over the adjacent suite in December 2015, began construction in January 2016, and finally had our grand re-opening in May.
We are very proud of how far we have come and where we are now. It would not have been possible without the dedication of all our athletes, who not only believed in us, but also in themselves. We truly feel lucky that our clients trust us with their progression and growth as athletes, and as people. We are privileged to be a part of their success, and more importantly the process that got them there. All of our athletes are amazing people, and we hope they come back to visit us and feel they have a place to train at forever—wherever their life may take them. Cheers to sticking with us through the construction, and we hope to continue to grow with you in the future!
