Things athletes do during their off-seasons

Recently, many people in the world were focused on their television because of Super Bowl LI. Many of the athletes go through intense training to be the best of the best. But do your ever wonder what many athletes do when they’re done with their season? The answer is that most professional athletes take time to do things they aren’t able to do during their seasons.

One athlete, named LeBron James, is a professional basketball player. LeBron is the superstar guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and a four-time winner of the NBA’s most valuable player award. According to complexsports.com LeBron decided to travel to foreign countries in 2015, during his off-season, instead of playing basketball or working out, and he agreed to play a role in the movie Trainwreck. When he’s not playing sports he likes to act in movies.

Another athlete, Jen Rhines, is a 2000, 2004, and 2008 Olympian. According to running.competitor.com when she had an injury she had to take three weeks off in July, so she traveled to Italy with teammates and biked around Tuscany. When Jen Rhines isn’t running she doesn’t worry about what she eats and takes a mental break from her race schedule “You can’t be on your game all the time,” she said.

And lastly, athlete Larry Fitzgerald Jr., who is a wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, likes to travel to foreign countries according to complexsports.com. Larry Fitzgerald Jr. has been to more than 80 countries total since first breaking into the NFL. He averages about two months of globetrotting every off-season. He has scuba dived nearly 30 sites worldwide, and has set foot on all seven continents.

Most athletes don’t usually practice all the time when it’s the off-season, so they can also enjoy some of the things we do everyday.
