Three-time FIFA Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo believes that good nutrition is essential for performance and that’s why he’s teamed up with Herbalife.
Blessed with strength, speed, power and grace, Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo is always looking for a competitive edge. That’s why he focuses on a rigorous training regimen and effective sports nutrition.
“I see my body as a weapon, it gives me a significant advantage on the field when it’s finely tuned, and a big part of my job as a player is to make sure that I’m always in top physical form,” says Ronaldo. “Putting the extra effort into enhancing what I have makes all the difference during the competition.”
He approaches his pre-workout, workout and recovery routines with absolute focus.
“For me, optimal training and recovery is in the details,” he says. “I pay as close attention to flexibility as I do my shooting drills. I also know that good nutrition is at the core of my success and the Herbalife team helps me to understand the relationship between losing vitamins and minerals during training and proper supplementation to put it all back.”
Ronaldo is working with John Heiss, Ph.D., senior director of sports and fitness for Herbalife, on the comprehensive Herbalife24™ product line. Herbalife is also helping Ronaldo with his own program for optimal nutrition by supplying a range of products to support his demanding workout and training regimen. He really likes the chocolate peanut flavored Protein Bar Deluxe and his favorite Herbalife® Formula 1 Healthy Meal Nutritional Shake Mix flavors are wild berry and vanilla.
Herbalife is the Global Nutrition Partner of Ronaldo because he believes in the Herbalife commitment to good nutrition.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the greatest football players in the world, and someone who embodies our philosophy of good nutrition being at the core of a healthy, active life, and a key advantage in the competitive world of professional sport,” says Michael O. Johnson, Chairman and CEO of Herbalife. “His passion and belief will undoubtedly translate into tremendous opportunities for Herbalife and our independent Members. We love and share his commitment and enthusiasm for this relationship and are excited about the future together.”
