... yes, you.
I love working with athletes. No, I LOVE working with athletes. Athletes possess a different attitude than most when it comes to health care, to my role at what I do and about how they view their body as a whole.
Athletes realize that their performance is dependent upon the state of their body. They know their paycheck depends on their body. As a result, they usually take better care of it. Athletes are often the weirdos eating salad for breakfast, saying they can't go to that party because they need their sleep. Who are these weirdos?
Here's a secret: We are ALL professional athletes. We all use our body to make a living, to bring something to the world, to "perform." Wether its on the field, or sitting at the desk working on a novel, you're using your body. How amazing this endeavor is is directly dependent on the state of the vehicle — no, the gift! — which is your body. Want a better profession? more money? Try working on and taking care of the thing that performs that profession. If nothing else, you'll be healthier. :)
