“I have a whole performance team. I got a whole group,” Wilson said when asked if he was concerned about the time he spent away from the field during the coronavirus pandemic. “I have a full-time trainer that travels with me everywhere [and] works with [my wife] Ciara too. … I have a full-time mobile person that’s working on me, that’s making sure I’m moving the right way and everything else. I have a full-time massage person [and] two chefs.”

The Seattle Seahawks player has kept to his strict routine for the last five years — and has spared no expense on hyperbaric chambers, physical therapy and personal training.

“I get treatment every day. … I’m in between 363 and 365 [days a year],” he continued, noting that he sometimes gives himself a break on Thanksgiving or Christmas depending on his schedule. “I’m trying to play until I’m 45 at least, so for me, my mentality is that I’m going to leave it all on the field and do everything I can [to] take care of myself.”

The Ohio native was drafted to the Seahawks in 2012 and has remained with the team for his entire career. He started in two Super Bowls and led his team to victory over the Denver Broncos in 2014.
