Company News A+ Athletes Powered by D1 Sports Private Media Preview Event
Feb 26, 2018
Carrollton, TX—A M King, Sports Med Properties and NFL star cornerback Aqib Talib, announce the completion of the newest D1 Sports Training facility, a cutting-edge athletic establishment featuring innovative programs for amateur and professionals, in the Dallas suburb of Carrollton. Please join us for a private media preview at the D1 Sports Training facility at 3000 Belmeade Dr. in Carrollton on March 1 at 11 am.
A+ Athletes Powered by D1 Sports is solely owned by Aqib Talib, a nine-year NFL cornerback who now plays for the Denver Broncos. He attended middle school and high school near Dallas. The D1 facility will serve amateur and professional athletes to train, but will also be used as Talib’s own off-season training facility.
“I want to help provide kids with a stable environment, a place to play and practice sports,” said Talib. “This facility will allow them to train and play with first class amenities.”
The 20,000-square foot building features an indoor football field with artificial turf, a yoga studio and a VIP lounge, which are all unique features to D1 facilities. The complex will also offer a 2-acre outdoor football field with natural grass, lights and a high-performance track.
“It was an honor working with such a great project team to complete our seventh D1 Sports Training facility with Sports Med Properties,” says George Lehnerer, A M King Business Unit Leader.
Integrated Design-Build firm A M King and site search company Sports Med Properties have established a specific development, design and construction formula for the growth and expansion of D1 Sports Training, a Nashville-based company that pairs pro athletes—often from the NFL or NBA—with a training facility, physical therapy and medical services and specialized coaching programs for local athletes. Chris Paul (Houston Rockets), Jeff Teague (Minnesota Timberwolves) and Aqib Talib (Denver Broncos) are among the investors in A M King/Sports Med locations, which includes D1 Birmingham, D1 Winston-Salem, D1 Denver, D1 Omaha, D1 Louisville and D1 Indianapolis.
“We have the process down to a science,” said Randy Russell, president of Sports Med Properties, LLC., which has helped D1 open and plan over 40 facilities across the country. “Sports Med and A M King are able to help these athletes fulfill their dreams more efficiently than ever. We’re excited to see this program progress and continue to expand.”
