Lifestyle

Being an athlete is more than just training and competing. It's a lifestyle. Choices you make off the field—what you wear, how you present yourself, how you spend your time, whom you make friends with—help shape your individuality and character. They can also help or hurt your personal and your team's performance. Organizing or participating in team-building events and activities—movies, dinners, video games, listening to music, cross-training—helps forge strong bonds of friendship that can improve a team's chances for success. Learn about the healthy and positive lifestyle choices that elite coaches and athletes most admire.
