In a recent interview, CEO of Herbalife Rich Goudis spoke about the sponsorship of professional footballer Jonathan Dos Santos. He spoke about the excitement felt at Herbalife and why they’re so happy about this partnership.
A big priority of Jonathan Dos Santos is keeping his body in prime shape and condition. For Herbalife, this is an honor as their primary focus is making products that enhance and help the human body maintain its health.
This sponsorship is not a surprise for Jonathan or Herbalife, as he has been using their products since he was introduced to them at a Los Angeles Galaxy lounge. To recover from extensive training and acquire the best nutrients, Dos Santos is known to use Herbalife’s products on a daily basis.
Prior to working out, Jonathan starts his morning with a rich shake including banana and Herbalife24® Rebuild Strength powder mix. The drink is called “Banana Sunrise” and there’s a video on the Herbalife website in which he shows his process of preparation and the ingredients included.
Jonathan Dos Santos
Along with his brother Giovani, Jonathan was born in Monterrey, Mexico. Early in his career, Jonathan showed interest in soccer and began seeing success when he traveled to Europe as a teenager. During a tournament in France, he caught the eye of FC Barcelona scouts and was invited to La Masia.
It was then that he began playing for the team and a few years later, in 2014 was picked up by Villarreal CF. He was with Villarreal for a couple of years before the LA Galaxy laid eyes on him. In 2017, the Galaxy bought him off Villarreal for several million Euros and he has since then been playing for them, joining his brother in the field and playing for the same team.
Since the 80’s, Herbalife Nutrition has made it a priority to produce high-end products. Their vision and goal have always been to make people healthier. Concerned about the high costs of medical procedures and the increase of obesity in the population, Herbalife constantly puts their products to test. It’s no surprise that the company has succeeded in more than 90 countries since their products are backed by science.
Although the company only has a little over 8,000 employees worldwide, their net sales reflect how well the company is doing. In 2017 alone, Herbalife Nutrition brought in nearly $4.5 billion. The company currently sponsors hundreds of teams, events, and world-class athletes which also includes Cristiano Ronaldo.
