Hula Hoop Heath
I photographed Padres closing pitcher Heath Bell for a health story for The Wall Street Journal last weekend. Evidently he has a somewhat unorthodoxed method of training. He lost over 25 pounds in the off-season by using the Wii Fit. His favorite workout, you guessed it the Hula-Hoop game. There was just something kind of humorous seeing a 6'4" bad-ass professional pitcher doing Yoga, aerobics and Hula-Hoop on a video game. Hey, whatever works though. Keep striking those opponents out. We need some wins here.
