Westfield, IN –Today, Mayor Andy Cook joined other city leaders and owners of Pro X Athlete
Development to break ground on the latest business to make Grand Park its home. The $5 million
Pro X facility is scheduled to open in early 2019.

  
"Our vision for Grand Park was that it be an economic driver for Westfield," said Mayor Andy Cook. "Seeing
a private company, like Pro X, locate here is evidence that our vision for this campus is on track. It is the
beginning of Grand Park's future in the 'business of sports.'"

  
“The Pro X team is thrilled that we get an opportunity to bring our training experience and expertise to the
great city of Westfield and Grand Park," commented JoeThatcher, Pro X President. "We feel our presence
on the campus will not only compliment what has been created, but also be a catalyst for future growth.
Grand Park affords so many athletes the opportunity to compete and showcase their talents on a grand
scale and our goal is help these same athletes be the best that they can be.”

  
The 60-thousand square foot facility will be located west of the Grand Park Events Center and will provide
the unique integration of all facets of an athlete’s development- physical training, rehab, injury prevention
and sport-specific instruction. The Pro X mission is to expose athletes of all sports, ages and skill levels to
innovative and high-level training. The multi-sport training facility will feature a 3-thousand square foot
weight room, 38-thousand square feet of open turf (enough for two full-sized baseball diamonds), 22
batting cages, 2 full swing golf simulators and a fully operational sports rehab/physical therapy office.

  
The Pro X business concept and facility were developed and designed by former professional athletes –
including former Indianapolis Colts players Justin Snow, Curtis Painter and Dan Muir – and replicates the
integrated and customized care pro athletes receive on a daily basis. Pro X is dedicated to helping
young athletes in the journey to achieve their full potential. For more go to proxathlete.com
