When Ryan Zink, Franchise FastLane’s co-founder, walked in D1 Nashville, he immediately got goosebumps thinking about the potential of D1. With Peyton Manning, Tim Tebow, Chris Paul, Von Miller, and many other world-class athletes involved, it was obvious D1 was the place for the athlete. Unfortunately, D1’s growth stalled early on due to the size and expense of their facilities. Together, D1 and FastLane create a much smaller option, significantly reducing expenses, and growth has not slowed down ever since.
