D1 Sports


D1 Sports is a national sports training and medicine system with locations across the U.S. D1 focuses on sports training for athletes of all skill levels through focused, high-intensity workouts and recovery-based sports medicine services.

The D1 Sports ownership develops facilities designed for improving athletic strength, conditioning and performance, which is why they trust The Recreational Group to design, out and build recreational surfacing solutions and accessories that meet or exceed all of their performance requirements.

XGrass Synthetic Turf Fields

XGrass Performx synthetic turf fields provide D1 athletes with a high-performance, durable and safe indoor surfacing solution that stands up to extreme strength and conditioning training, while also proving a stable, solid surface for skill development. 

“We are excited about our partnership with our rep, Jimmy Weekley, and XGrass as a supplier. XGrass outfitted our Orlando location and it looks and performs great,” said D1 Founder/Owner Will Bartholomew.

D1 also appreciates the low-maintenance requirements of the XGrass performance turf, as well as it's wide variety of customizable options. This allows D1 to perfectly integrate Performx turf within any space requirements of their facilities. 

Play It Surfacing Rubber Fitness Flooring

The Recreational Group outfits each D1 training facility with rubber surfacing solutions from its Play It Surfacing business.  Its rubber surfacing is a perfect fit for D1, not only for its exceptional durability and resilience but also for its versatility. 

D1 athletes can train on these surfaces in a variety of ways, from heavy compound floor movements to intense cross-fit rotations.
