I am an award-winning Chicago-based American journalist covering celebrity and lifestyle industries with over 10 years of experience. I spent over 5 years at the industry fashion and retail trade “bible” WWD, aka Women’s Wear Daily, where my beat was first sportswear and then accessories and fine jewelry for 4 years. My career witnessed the shift from traditional print media to the evolution of digital. In this role, I gained expert knowledge of the design world, the wholesale and retail markets as well as the marketing that supports them. Along the way, I met endless creatives and business people who create luxury from inception to POS with the consumer.

Basketball can be an absolutely gruelling sport, both on the court and off the court. With sports seasons changing from on to the off season, it is important to know how to keep yourself healthy during both seasons. Too many times do people become unhealthy, and they end up injuring themselves, which costs them play time and possibly the whole season.

Here are some ways to ensure you stay healthy both on and off the court.

Get plenty of rest/sleep

Rest and recovery is absolutely vital to any athlete, or anyone practicing a sport or exercise regimen. Because athletes usually combine a sport, workout regimen and a strict diet, it is very important to allow the body recover and take in those nutrients day in and day out. Stretching and rest days are equally important, to allow the body to recover and also to keep you limber during those exercise and sports sessions.

Nutrition is important

If you aren’t fuelling your body with the right nutrients, those exercise routines and sports sessions aren’t going to do anything for you. You need to be keeping your body fed with nutrients to recover from exercise, as well as giving yourself energy to keep going.

Hire someone to help you

If you are a high level athlete, or looking to take the next step, you should definitely consider hiring a professional to help you with your exercise, diet and sports routines. They will know what to do in the most optimal way to keep you injury free and at a peak level of performance. It is worth the money if you truly are committed to taking the sport to the next level.

Playing a sport like basketball can be very challenging on the body, and it is important to keep yourself healthy both on and off the court to ensure you can keep playing well.
