The change comes a day after the Giants and Timex said they were ending their four-year partnership. The headquarters had been called the Timex Performance Center.
The Giants and Quest also plan to develop sports diagnostics services aimed at determining peak performance, providing training insights, reducing injuries and improving an individual’s overall health. Each year, a select group of Giants players will be given the opportunity to volunteer to work with Quest in developing these models and tests.
