James Harrison: I spend $400K-$600K on my body per year
New Bengals linebacker James Harrison treats his body like a temple. A very expensive temple. That's why he spends at least $400,000 per year on it.
“My body is what helps me to make money,” new Bengals linebacker James Harrison said Tuesday in his introductory news conference. "Whatever there is that I need to do to try and make myself better or get myself healthy, I’m going to do it. It wouldn’t be unreasonable to say that I spend anywhere between $400,000 and $600,000 on body work, as far as taking care of my body, year-in and year-out.”
In case you missed it, I’ll copy/paste the quote.
"It wouldn’t be unreasonable to say that I spend anywhere between $400,000 and $600,000 on body work, as far as taking care of my body, year-in and year-out.”
In a word, "!!!!"
I mean, I’ve heard of NFL players treating their bodies like temples, but I didn’t realize you’d have to buy the entire congregation as well.
How exactly does one spend a half-million dollars a year on his body, anyway (the most important question being: that can’t possibly be worth it, right?)?
“As far as training, I have a hyperbaric chamber,” Harrison said. “I rent a hyperbaric chamber when I’m in Arizona. I have massages, and I bring people in from New York, Arizona to where I’m at. There’s that cost. Like I said, I get body work almost every single day except Saturday and Sunday. I have a homeopathic doctor, and I do a lot of homeopathic things. It’s just a lot -- supplements, so on and so forth.”
That’s a hell of a lot of supplements, though.
Said Harrison: “I’ve got a masseuse, got an acupuncturist, got a trainer, got another masseuse and another masseuse and a homeopathic doctor. I think that’s it.”
As crazy as those figures are, I think we all can agree on this: $500,000 just doesn’t go as far as it used to, you know?
