Golden State Warriors unveil performance centre

The Golden State Warriors have unveiled the most elite training and recovery centre in the NBA.

The Biofreeze Performance Center will be home to the Warriors practice facility and player campus, located at Chase Center, the Warriors’ new 18,064 seat privately financed sports and entertainment arena in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighbourhood.

The Biofreeze Performance Center totals 25,349ft2 and will house the team’s training and player facilities.

The space features two full-length basketball courts, six basketball hoops, a 4,000ft2 weight room, the team’s locker room, training and treatment areas which includes a sauna, a cryo treatment chamber, and a hydro room with float tanks.

Additional amenity spaces include a kitchen, team lounge, a barber shop and a theatre.

The locker room, which includes a ceiling that resembles the roof of Oracle Arena, has the team’s 2015 NBA Championship court inlaid on the floor in the centre of the room.

Each player’s locker comes equipped with their own personal 32-inch television, and the circular design of the room fosters a connected team environment.

Warriors president of basketball operations/general manager, Bob Myers, said:

The Biofreeze Performance Center will rival any such facility in the NBA. Early on in the design process it was clear in our conversations with Biofreeze that there was a shared vision in what a state-of-the-art training facility should include, and that’s exactly what we have now in the Biofreeze Performance Center.

The Biofreeze Performance Center offers our team and coaching staff every competitive advantage available, from the 4,000-square-foot weight room, to the training and recovery spaces. It meets all our needs and is a perfect fit for us from a partner perspective.
