Now in the second year of its Real Salt Lake jersey sponsorship, LifeVantage has announced the creation of a performance testing facility in partnership with the Major League Soccer club. The LifeVantage Sport Science Lab will apply advanced science and technology to help players improve their on-field performance.
“We are very excited for our club to venture into this space, one occupied by only a handful of the biggest soccer franchises in the world,” said Dan Barlow, Director of Sports Science and Performance for Real Salt Lake. “The expansion of our performance baselines and the in-depth monitoring of our athletes would not be possible without the commitment and guidance of our LifeVantage partners.”
Barlow is heading up the joint venture, which will hone in on each player’s response to training stress. The data collected will enable the Real Salt Lake Sports Science Department to measure the cellular stress profile—including factors such as oxidation and inflammation—of each athlete and create tailored workout regimens and nutrition plans.
Salt Lake City-based LifeVantage has signed on as the club’s jersey front sponsor for the 2014-2024 seasons. The nutrition and skincare brand markets products that interact with the body at the cellular level, and the lab’s research will help LifeVantage provide the proper supplements to take each player’s game to the next level.
