TCU began constructing their new donor-funded 10,000-square-foot athletic facility, which is expected to be completed in July of 2025, according to gofrogs.com.

“The new Athletics Human Performance Center enables us to provide the most elite training and wellness programs for our student-athletes – which will help them achieve their goals on and off the field,” Chancellor Victor J. Boschini, Jr. said.

The restoration and wellness facility will feature a cryo lounge, hydro massage pods and a snow room.

“Athletes really put our bodies through a lot and it’s great to see recovery being prioritized here,” Joe Laterza, a TCU football player, said. “The new additions will help all athletes across all sports at TCU.”

The cryo lounge will have targeted cold therapy to target soreness and minor aches, and heat therapy to provide targeted comfort. Additionally, the facility’s hydro massage pods will employ heated water waves to target specific areas of the body tailored to each athlete for a relaxing experience.

TCU will be one of the three athletic facilities in the United States with a dedicated snow room–complete with real purple snow flurries to help assist in post-workout recovery, according to gofrogs.com.

The facility will also hold social and individual recovery spaces, a sauna, a hydrotherapy pool and red light therapy.

The facility will support all TCU student-athletes across the 22-sport program and will be named after the Simpson family in recognition of their legacy gift to the university.

“The most magical moments made here is the support we get from the community,” Laterza said.

“We love and respect all our student-athletes and appreciate their hard work and incredible dedication to their teams and to TCU,” Amy Aliz Simpson, project leader and owner of REVFIT Texas, said.

In addition, TCU will carry out the construction of a new football performance center, an expanded entryway to the existing TCU football facilities and a renovation of the existing Bob Lilly Performance Center, according to a TCU news release.
