As a former athlete, I know from personal experience what it takes to get your body into peak condition. What I didn’t realize during my professional career is that being able to perform as a top athlete doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve achieved optimal health. What do I mean by that?In decades past, athletes would appear on TV commercials promoting “healthy” cereals, sports drinks or various pieces of athletic apparel.
As a retired professional athlete, sports have played a very important role in my life. And it continues to play a big role in my family. My kids are involved in hockey, tennis and cheerleading. Our evenings and weekends are full of youth sporting events.
