Olympic legend Michael Johnson to launch performance and fitness brand in Dubai
Olympic legend Michael Johnson is to open the first facility of his athletic development and improvement brand outside of the USA in Dubai in October.
Offering personalised athletic and fitness training programs for athletes and fitness enthusiasts of all levels, Michael Johnson Performance (MJP) will open its doors in October at Mina Rashid.
The 3,599 metre² facility will offer members individual personal training sessions, group fitness classes, sports medicine and nutrition, and athletic development programs for young athletes, and high-performance training programs for professional athletes, all under one roof.
Coupled with world-class trainers, MJP Dubai aims to also provide a range of programs for people of all ages to improve their fitness or athletic performance through a scientific and data driven approach.
Global trade enabler DP World and MJP Dubai are joint venture partners in the project.
Announcing the opening, Johnson, a four-time Olympic gold medallist, stated “I’m extremely pleased for this opportunity, to partner with a global organisation like DP World. The MJP brand is also a global one and it’s exciting to see another significant expansion in our growth journey.
"The state-of-the-art facility in Dubai is the region’s first sports performance training and fitness center and it will enable every athlete to achieve their potential, regardless of age, gender, limitation, sport or natural ability.”
MJP was established in the USA in 2007.
