At 31-years-old, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is still in the prime of his career, but he’s planning for the future. And by planning, we mean spending.
He’s having one of his best seasons, and some believe he might take home the MVP award this year.
During a recent interview on ‘The Bill Simmons‘ podcast, Wilson revealed he spends a lot money on keeping his body in the best shape possible.
I probably spend a million if not more on recovery. It’s not just the recovery part of it. That’s huge. For me, the biggest thing for me is the mental game. The mental game is so important. I’ve got two hyperbaric chambers. I’ve got a little bit of everything. I get in the hyperbaric four times a week, three times a week. I get treatment every day.
Additionally, he has a full time trainer, a full time physical therapist, full time masseuse and two private chefs.
Wilson says he tries his best to workout every single day of the year, even during the offseason, but admits he may miss one or two days.
The reality is Christmas — depending on the circumstances, but usually I do because we usually have a game around then — and Thanksgiving. I’m in between 363 and 365 amount of work that we do every day, something around the work I do.
Why is he so committed? He wants to play until he’s 45. That’s his goal. To keep playing until he’s 45…AT LEAST.
I’m trying to play until I’m 45, at least. For me, my mentality is that I’m going to leave it all on the field and do everything I can to take care of myself.
This is why they’re paying him the big bucks. For those who don’t know, he’s currently in a 4-year, $140 million contract. So yeah, $1 million a year on taking care of his body ain’t sh*t.
