A Partnership Rooted in Purpose
Cristiano Ronaldo, International Soccer Player and Herbalife Nutrition Sponsored Athlete | Herbalife Nutrition | May 23, 2018
On the field, I’m laser focused on one thing—performing at my peak. When my cleats touch the grass, my purpose is to win. And in order to deliver, my mind and body have to be ready and fully prepared. That’s why, in addition to practice and training, I believe strongly in the importance of the right nutrition for me as an individual, both on and off the field.
In 2013, Herbalife Nutrition became my official nutrition partner in large part because they understand the unique dietary needs and hydration requirements of professional athletes. But I was also drawn to the nutrition company because of their greater purpose to make the world healthier happier. Today, I’m proud to announce the renewal of our partnership through 2021.
Since my time with Herbalife Nutrition, their products have helped me optimize my athletic performance. I’ve worked closely with their experts and scientists as they developed Herbalife24 CR7 Drive, designed to fuel workouts and enhance hydration not just for professional athletes, but also for people striving to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle.
Beyond nutrition and fitness, we share a purpose to give back to communities. Together, we recently celebrated the opening of a new Herbalife Casa program in my hometown, Madeira, Portugal, through the Herbalife Family Foundation and in cooperation with the Associação de Desenvolvimento da Ribeira Brava. Our goal is to ensure children receive healthy nutrition, nutrition education, and support from their community.
Herbalife Nutrition and I share core values: a commitment to good nutrition and a healthy, active lifestyle and the responsibility to give back to communities around the world. I’m proud to be their partner as together we continue to inspire people around the world to live healthier and happier lives. I’m excited for what comes next!
