For me, it’s swimming. I can’t live without it.” Athlete 3: “It’s not about the winning. It’s about the doing.” Athlete 4: “Dude…working out; it’s better than sex. Well, almost. It definitely makes the sex better.” Athlete 5: “Start working out now and you’ll never regret it. Start when you’re 20, or 40, or 60. It doesn’t matter. Just start.” Athlete 6: “Man, it’s a freakin’ equation…calories in, calories out. When it’s balanced, you’re in control. Put better gas in the tank— better food—and you’ll perform even better.
