When it comes to basketball, skills and an athletic body is needed to excel. Skills can be strengthened with practice, but an athletic body needs nutrition to be achieved. That’s why Herbalife Nutrition and IMPACT Basketball built a two-year partnership to improve their facilities in Las Vegas. Named as the Herbalife Nutrition IMPACT Basketball Center, Herbalife will be providing the basketball players with customized nutrition plans to help them in their games. Included in this project is players’ access to the Herbalife 24 NSF Certified for Sports, and it will be available in three IMPACT Basketball facilities in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sarasota, Florida, and Los Angeles.
Ibi Montesino, the senior vice president, and the managing director of Herbalife Nutrition North America Region stated that he is thrilled for this Herbalife Nutrition and IMPACT Basketball partnership. The premier food company is happy to provide proper nutrition for basketball players. This is also a great way to educate players about healthy nutrition that will not only help them get their games to a new level but will also help in avoiding diseases.
Patrick O’Bryant from Golden State Warriors/Bosten Celtics and former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue attended the opening. Among them is the founder of IMPACT Basketball, Joe Abunassar. The trio offered basketball coaching tips to students from Teach for America (TFA). In addition, they also conducted high-level practice drills for 30 students. Sean Parker, the executive director of TFA stated his excitement to have access to this opportunity. He also said that nutrition is a great way to help athletes stay healthy and active. Being an athlete brings a lot of benefits, including higher academic achievements, development of skills, and the importance of time management and nutrition.
