The new Sports Performance Academy in Spanish Fork hopes to be a “safe, clean, cook, sheik place for individuals and families to come have fun and be healthy,” said the gym’s co-owner Devin Shaw.

Sports Performance Academy will be holding a grand opening on Friday, February 1, starting at 4 p.m. There will be live music and demonstrations from classes and programs they offer. Food trucks will also be on site.

The walls of the 6,000 square foot facility are decorated with a stunning 26-foot tall mural depicting sports icons Muhammed Ali, Michael Jordan and Brandi Chastain. The mural, painted by Ben Slow, a professional street artist from London, are meant to inspire those striving in the gym to reach their goals.

“It’s amazing,” Shaw said of the mural. “We’ve had HS teachers bring their kids in to see it.”

Sports Performance Academy’s main fitness offering is a box-fit program. It includes a full range of boxing components in 12 rounds, or stations. Each round lasts 3 minutes. Trainers and coaches are on hand to help with proper technique.

“You’ll get one of the best workouts in your life in 36 minutes. Every day it is something new,” said Shaw.

Membership also includes creating a fitness and training plan with a personal coach to help members create their health and fitness goals. Sports Performance is working on an app that will help patrons track their progress.

Sports Performance Academy also offers certified TRX classes, women-only classes, spartan training and speed and agility classes. “There’s a place for everybody,” Shaw said.

They hope to offer a happy medium in their workout approach where everyone feels comfortable and welcome.

Shaw said he and co-owner Paul Freeman both have lost children and wanted to create a place where families can come exercise and socialize together to get fit and feel good about themselves.

Age-appropriate classes are available for kids 7 years and up. There are also team building exercises and opportunities for kids.

Sports Performance Academy will also be offering age-appropriate Spartan classes to prepare families to participate in Spartan races. They also plan on running mini spartan type races out of the gym to help get members ready for competition.

Most of the classes and programs Sports Performance Academy offers are included in the membership fees. Monthly membership is $75 for an individual and $150 for a family pass.

The Sports Performance Academy is located at 994 Expressway Lane in Spanish Fork. For more information on classes and membership, visit thesportsperformanceacademy.com.
