Mothers Know Best: NFL Moms Team With Eddie George to Showcase a Better Way to a Healthier Lifestyle
Date:9/5/2007

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- NFL great Eddie George believes there's a better way for women past the age of 40 to stay fit and prevent disease -- and more than 20 mothers of top NFL stars are about to undertake a six month experiment to see if he's right. As part of the EGX Lifestyle Challenge, moms of such stars as Donovan McNabb, Jerome Bettis, Reggie Wayne and Bryant Westbrook will undertake a complete lifestyle overhaul -- including making healthier eating choices and incorporating simple forms of exercise into their daily routines.

The program kicks-off in Nashville on Friday, Sept. 7 when the moms will convene for the first time. There they'll undergo a complete physical examination and set their goals. Over the next six months, George and his EGX team will criss-cross the U.S. to provide encouragement. Results of the program will be revealed at this year's Super Bowl in Phoenix.

"This should be a lot of fun," said George. "It's important to note that none of these moms are getting paid to do this. These are all women who have made the decision that there is a better way to live and EGX Lifestyle is a great blueprint to that end. EGX is a program I started several years ago when I retired. It's not about a rigorous workout regime or getting buff. It's about simple choices and living in such a way that increases your chances of avoiding major diseases. It's about living longer and better."

A 1995 Heisman Trophy winner at Ohio State and 1996 NFL Rookie of the Year with the Houston Oilers, George owns virtually every Oilers/Tennessee Titans franchise rushing record. In addition to his duties with EGX, George currently serves as color commentator on Tennessee Titans radio broadcasts and is a regular contributor to FOX's popular Best Damn Sports Show Period. He also co-hosts FSN's Pro Football Preview.

In addition George was the spokesperson for GetFitTN, a statewide awareness program developed by Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen to address the rising epidemic of Type 2 diabetes and risk factors that lead to the disease, like obesity. George has also been featured on MTV's "Made," where he coached one youth to lose 40 pounds.
