World Famous Cricketer Virat Kohli Improves His Game and His Community Outreach

Virat Kohli, sponsored by Herbalife, is a middle-order batsman known as one of the most flamboyant and dynamic cricketers in the world.

“I have a passion for the sport of cricket that is backed by self-belief and hard work,” says Kohli who has captained the Indian Premier League Team, Royal Challengers Bangalore, since 2008. He has also Vice Captained the Indian cricket national team since 2012. “It’s what drives me to want to be the best.”

Kohli has carved out a niche for himself as a leader, trend setter and one of the most dedicated cricketers around. He has achieved impressive milestones, such as becoming the fastest Indian to complete 5000 runs in ODI cricket, and the fastest to make 20 hundreds, breaking Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s world record. However, his interests extend beyond the sport of cricket, into the realm of helping the less fortunate live better lives.

In 2013, Kohli launched the Virat Kohli Foundation, a charitable institution commissioned to make long term valuable contributions to society by generating awareness for meaningful initiatives and projects, and endorsing and raising funds for them.

Kevin Kraus: Attitude is Everything

Triathlons, even for the highly trained, are a test of mental and physical strength. For two-time triathlon competitor and Herbalife employee Kevin Kraus, finishing the 2014 Herbalife Triathlon in Torrance, California became a challenge he couldn’t have imagined just four months earlier.

In June 2014, he was riding his motorcycle home from work and was involved in a serious accident. Doctors performed nine different operations on his leg, but there was too much damage. On June 7, his leg was amputated below the knee.

When he woke up from the surgery and saw his amputated leg for the first time, he knew that this would be a defining moment in his life. Kevin saw two paths he could take – a path filled with self-pity, doubt and regret, or a path where he stood up to the challenge and proved to himself that he could overcome any obstacle.

What originally sparked your interest in nutrition?

I entered college as an English major, but my interests in science led me to switch to biology. I started to see how my interests in science, human health, cooking, gardening and just a lot of things that were food related, seemed to be carving out a path for me in the field of nutrition. At the time, I honestly didn’t even know that you could major in nutrition. Then, one of my instructors in a cell biology class started talking about nutrition and dietitians, and a Read more »
