Team Air Relax: Michael, can you tell us about yourself?
Michael: My name is Michael Astorino, I’m 19 years old from Philadelphia, PA. I grew up in the suburbs outside Philly until I transferred to IMG Academy in my sophomore year of high school where I further developed my basketball skills and academic career, which ultimately led me to playing college basketball at Wesleyan University. I’m studying psychology and economics in college while I also work as the Head of Digital Marketing for an NIL Agency.
Team Air Relax: what do you believe in?
Michael: I'm driven by the idea of constantly pursuing the best version of myself. While this aspiration may seem elusive, as I may never truly be satisfied with that "best version", it keeps me aligned with the goal of improving myself every day.
Team Air Relax: your achievement/ accomplishment.
Michael: Definitely playing college basketball. It’s a testament to the dedication and hard work I’ve put into my craft over the years.
Team Air Relax: how did you discover Air Relax?
Michael: I got to know about Air Relax during my high school years and quickly recognized its recovery benefits. As I moved on to college, they became an integral part of my recovery routine and have helped me perform at a high-level day in and day out.
Team Air Relax: your favorite drink?
Michael: While it might not be my absolute favorite, every morning I prepare a drink with a mix of creatine, collagen, LMNT electrolytes, and AG1. It sets the right tone for the day and fuels my body for optimal performance.
Team Air Relax: your PRO tips and/ or recommendations to your followers.
Michael: Physically, my two key pieces of advice would be to prioritize and optimize sleep and have a balanced diet, avoid processed foods (eat your plants and protein). Mentally, fall in love with the process, find joy in the effort that is required to reach your goals. Also, focus on what is in your control and letting go of what is not, that mindset has dramatically altered how I approach life and competition.
Team Air Relax: what is your contribution to Planet Earth?
Michael: I strive to constantly have an attitude of “relentless optimism”, in all aspects of my life. I believe attitude can go a long way in the world and if that positivity spreads to just one person, then I’ve contributed something.
Team Air Relax: Michael, thanks for your time and being our Brand Ambassador!
