EAS Fuels NFL Player On and Off the Field
Staying Fit. Dodging tackles. Breaking records. Changing lives. For Arizona Cardinals NFL football wide receiver, Larry Fitzgerald.
How does Larry do it all? Fitzgerald credits his strong work ethic, disciplined workout routine and good nutrition, which includes Abbott’s EAS brand sports nutrition products, to making the most of his life on and off the football field.
“Every morning, I eat a Myoplex bar and have a Myoplex protein shake. Then I use EAS Recovery Protein Powder after my workouts to help me recover,” said Fitzgerald, who has used EAS products since joining the NFL as the third, overall pick in the 2004 draft. “I pay especially close attention to what I put in my body and safe, quality sports nutrition products are very important to me. “
This season has been a big one for Larry Fitzgerald. The charismatic wide receiver is now the youngest player in National Football League (NFL) history to make 700 catches and only one of two receivers to reach the 10,000-yard mark before age 30.
“After practice other guys are tired and fatigued, but I still feel good and ready to go out again the next day,” Fitzgerald said. “I come in to work and I feel ready for more.”
Recovering faster after a workout doesn’t just help Fitzgerald on the field. He has the fuel he needs to do more off of the field as well. He has established The Larry Fitzgerald First Down Fund to give time, money and resources to numerous organizations across the country and around the world. As part of his efforts to give back, Fitzgerald has made several trips to Africa and Asia to assist many nonprofit initiatives. He is also a passionate supporter of fighting breast cancer, especially after losing his mother to the disease.
With his mantra of, “Faith, Focus, Finish,” and the help of EAS brand sports Nutrition products, Fitzgerald looks to the future of reaching 11,000 yards and breaking into the top 30 all-time wide receivers in the NFL.
