The 27-year-old has decided to swap her erstwhile training base in Switzerland for Bolton which is just 10 miles from Manchester, where her partner moved this summer after his transfer from German club Bayern Munich to England's premier club, reported Manchester Evening News.
Ivanovic and Schweinsteiger have been dating since 2014 though neither have made an official announcement about the same. The couple however, have been frequently spotted together around Manchester's city centre, shopping and even dining out together. The German midfielder was also by Ivanovic's side during the French Open and Wimbledon championships this summer.
Ivanovic's fitness coach Howard Green is the head of strength and conditioning at the Bolton Arena. Ivanovic is set to train here alongside the rest of her coaching staff that comprises physical conditioning experts Nigel Sears and Andrew Bettles.
"I will be based more there (in Great Britain) now. It just came about. I think for me it's very important to have a good team and to feel comfortable in the environment," Ivanovic said recently.
The Bolton Arena in Middlebrook, is one of three International High Performance Centres in the United Kingdom. It includes a tennis centre with eight indoor synthetic courts and two floodlit clay courts.
