Live Like An Athlete: Reggie Bush on Health & Fitness
NFL star Reggie Bush is a health and fitness advocate who believes attention to wellness should begin in childhood. From his youth football camps to his partnership with Taco Bell Foundation for Teens, Reggie is spreading the good word. He joins Erin Sharoni to discuss his approach in this special episode.
Reggie Bush is no stranger to the benefits of fitness. While it's pretty safe to say that no one can broach NFL stardom without a healthy body and mind, Bush points out that attention to wellness begins at the youth level.
Last Friday, he surprised kids at his former high school in La Mesa, California by showing up to take over a gym class as an ambassador for the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens. Encouraging students to set goals for graduation and stressing the importance of education, Bush also acknowledges how integral health is to success:
"For me, fitness is a natural part of what I do...it's been a part of me for so long because I've been playing sports since I was 7 or 8 years old. I've always felt from [the time I was] a little kid that fitness was important, that being in shape was important...it's very important for kids to know that being healthy and in shape is just another way to put years back on your life. We all want to live long."
