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.
