While most professional athletes train hard for their sport, the prep required for high-level CrossFitters is just a bit different. The various exercises and protocols aren’t just designed to help bolster their performance in an abstract sense, like lifting weights or running sprints might help a football player, for example—their training is their sport. The heavy lifting, gymnastics, and metabolic disciplines practiced in the Box are the same that are measured on the competition field.

Pat Vellner, one of the top male athletes in the sport, knows this well. “CrossFit is sort of the sport of fitness,” he tells the MH crew. “We kind of involve all elements of fitness—powerlifting, weight lifting, gymnastics, endurosport—and kind of test people across all domains for fitness.”

What does the second chapter look like for athletes after they retire? For former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison, two of the paths frequented by his brothers and sisters in sport — acting and business — seemed interesting, so he decided to try and pursue both.

On the business front, Harrison partnered with Champions + Legends to help promote their workout brand of CBD sports supplements to help athletes workout and shorten recovery time. Harrison says he was introduced to CBD products before he retired as a way for him to recover.

Champions + Legends, a sports supplements brand of hemp-derived CBD products for athletic preparation, performance and recovery, has tapped Tim O’Donnell to be an athlete partner.

“I’m not gonna lie: there’s a stigma around CBD and I was hesitant to use it until I educated myself and started understanding the benefits for me as an athlete,” O’Donnell, a world champion triathlete and Ironman competitor, told Benzinga. “I’ve found that solution. My biggest concern was finding a product I could trust for quality and purity. Luckily I’ve found it in Champions + Legends CBD.”

Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick has signed on as a founding partner at Champions + Legends, a CBD sports supplements brand.

The company also boasts endorsements from Super Bowl champion James Harrison of the Pittsburgh Steelers; Thor “the Mountain” Björnsson winner of several Strongest Man competitions, world deadlift record-holder, and actor in the hit series “Game of Thrones;” writer and Fox Sports commentator Jay Glazer; rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Adam Ondra; weightlifter Sara Sigmundsdóttir; and crossfitter Patrick Vellner.
