The Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI) launched in 1985, and is committed to helping athletes optimize their performance by driving the research, improving education, and providing world-class sports science services.
In 2011, GSSI opened a satellite lab in Bradenton, Florida, focused on helping to improve the performance of IMG Academy student-athletes. The GSSI Performance Lab at IMG Academy is located on campus and provides access to some of the world’s best sports science. It is GSSI’s first satellite location.
IMG Academy’s student-athletes will undergo the same tests given to some of the world’s top athletes, including Eli Manning, Dwight Howard, Landon Donovan, Hope Solo, Abby Wambach, Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings.
