I was a very driven athlete growing up and there wasn't a time of the day I wasn't playing or thinking about sports. My goal is to one day own my own sports performance facility that I run part-time. That is why when I saw this story I had to share it.

PostBulletin put out a story saying the Vikings Wide Receiver Adam Thielen is opening a Health Club in Rochester. The article states he already owns two in the twin cities but was looking to expand to a part of the state where sports are important to the community. The health club is called "ETS Performance Health Club." The article states that they aren't just focused on athletics, they want to focus on the overall health of the person. He isn't going on this venture alone. Former Viking and current New Orleans Saints player Marcus Sherels is also involved in the project.

The goal is to open sometime in September even though that is during the season, the article says. Thielen said that he hopes to be at the grand opening and check in often. The location is 5931 Bandel Rd. NW and construction should be done soon. I can't wait to check it out!
