Remember that sports drink commercial where Michael Vick threw a ball 150 yards? Take notes on this new video, created by the NFL quarterback for MensFitness.com and Celebritysweat.net, and that could (almost) be you.
Celebrity Sweat launched this past December with the mission of getting kids amped about making health and wellness a top priority. Its website takes users behind the scenes with major celebrities and athletes, providing a lively look into their workout routines and what inspires or motivates them. Vick and Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson recently filmed videos, as did rap star Nelly.
Not only are do the celebrity videos helpful and informative, but at some point they may get teens out from in front of X-box screens and into something more productive. Instead of 20 kills a day in Call of Duty, how about 20 pushups?
A percentage of the proceeds from Vick’s video are donated to Philadelphia inner-city schools for sports equipment, fitness gear and youth programs. For more, check out Celebritysweat.net.
