Julio Jones off field and behind the scenes, literally


It’s always interesting to see what athletes can do on the field with their talent, but it’s even more intriguing to see what goes on off the field, sort of a behind the scenes look at the life of a star athlete. It makes it even cooler when you find an athlete may share a common interest of your own.

Literally speaking of behind the scenes, Falcon’s wide receiver Julio Jones recently shot a commercial with Zita Coco Water. Last year a foot injury took Jones out of the season, but this year he plans to make a comeback and is ahead of schedule to start week 1. Things look pretty good thus far as Jones told the AJC in an interview surrounding the commercial, he’s been going out there running and doing everything he can to stay on top of it as far as rehydration goes and in making sure that he doesn’t get any cramps or anything in his muscles while working out.

Hmm. Maybe Lebron James should look into it?

Water is a great way to stay hydrated, but it lacks the electrolytes you need to put back in your body after a great workout. I have definitely become a fan of coconut water as an avid runner myself, so I think this is a great partnership! It’s neat to see an athlete partner up with something other than the normal sports drinks such as Gatorade or Propel Water.

    Good source of regeneration. Some say pickle juice does the trick. One never knows what really works. I like beer.
