Lamar Odom Drug Problem Revealed

20130826-154153.jpg

Reports have shown that another famous athlete has allowed drugs to overtake his career.

Khloe Kardashian’s hubby Lamar Odom is reportedly addicted to crack cocaine.

Odom has been dealing with his drug problem for the past two years and is currently at an undisclosed location seeking help for his issue.

Last summer he spent three weeks at a rehab facility, and was reported that he was clean for the 2012-2013 season while playing for the L.A. Clippers. However, in 2001, he was suspended for violating the NBA’s substance abuse policy.

According to TMZ, things began to get shaky when Lamar’s wife Khloe Kardashian separated from him last Wednesday due to a failed family intervention.  It was reported that Kardashian is with her husband, and sticking to his side during this difficult time.

We here at Fit With Fallon hope that Lamar gets the proper treatment and the necessary help to be healthy, and we hope to see you back on the courts! Remember, health comes first!

20130809-054919.jpg

NBA Laker player Kobe Bryant seems to be in high spirits and good health after posting a pic on his Facebook page to show a pic of his surgery scar.

In April, Laker #24 underwent surgery after tearing his Achilles tendon on his left leg.

It has been three months since the surgery, but Bryant is up  and walking, and his really looking forward to returning to the court.

So far while rehabilitating, he has attended promotional trips, and even makes time for fans.

We just hope that he is taking his exercising lightly while recovering from the surgery.

Good luck Kobe, we can’t wait to see you on the courts next season!

NBA Player Rudy Gay Dishes In On His Vision Problems

20130722-182927.jpg We all know when it comes to playing the game of Basketball, the drill is hand/eye coordination. NBA player Rudy Gay dishes in on how his vision affected the way that he played last season. The unbelievable shooting stats that Gay received were 42.5 percent on the floor, 36 percent from midrange, and 33.6 percent from 3 point lead, all a result from his failing vision from his left eye. He admitted, “I did have vision problems. Actually, it was terrible. I could hardly get my license.” Gay had an operation on his eye earlier this summer, which wasn’t a normal operation. He had to patch up his eye and take eye drops, something he really dreaded doing. Sounds painful! Gay adds, “I had to do it. It’s crazy because as much work as I’m putting in working on my shot, if I come back shooting [a better] percent from the three-point line, everybody’s gonna say it’s cause of my vision, not the hard work I’m putting in.” The good thing is, Gay will be returning to the courts next season. We give a big congrats to him on the bounce back and not giving up! Fitness Correspondent: Hannah Townsley Photo Credit: Google Via Yahoo! Sports

NBA Player Leondro Barbosa Trains After Injury

20130716-131303.jpg

The past five months have been unfortunate for Brazilian NBA player Leandro Barbosa.

First, tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during his game against the Charlotte Bobcats, then being traded to the Washington Wizards, and finally experiencing his contract expire.

What else can the former Boston Celtics player face? Well his attitude is not focusing on the negative, but just having pure motivation!

The 6 foot 3 Barbosa is not taking no for an answer, but just getting back in the game by training. Although he is a free agent, he has been working out by doing lateral movement and leg exercises.

Tune in to the motivating video below via Yahoo! Sports of Barbosa training to get back into the game. He does plenty of cardio and strength training exercises to get his body back into game mode. If you think you can’t accomplish your fitness goals, think again!

Good luck, Barbosa! We look forward to seeing you out on the courts!

Picture 24

“You don’t have anything if you don’t have your health”

Ain’t that the truth!

Eva Longoria knows all about almost losing it all, after her devastating divorce from NBA player Tony Parker. The divorce caused her such a depression, that it had a serious impact on her health.

Paying a visit to the Dr. Oz show, Eva opened up about the health issues that she experienced during her split from her x husband.

“That’s probably the time I got the most compliments because I was so skinny..I was not eating, I was depressed, I was sad, I think my diet was coffee. People kept on saying “you look amazing, divorce agrees with you” and I was like I don’t feel good, I have no energy, I didn’t know I was depressed. I went to the doctor to get some blood test because I knew something was wrong. and I was just depleted of every vitamin. He (Eva’s doctor) said it was as if someone took a straw and sucked (every vitamin out). He said you don’t have any iron, your liver is overacting, all of these things were physically wrong with my body. So I had to saturate with vitamins, to kind of get back on track”

After getting her health back on board, she also wanted to help others nurture and take care of their health. She created a cook book called Eva’s Kitchen which she includes some healthy Mexican recipes. She says;

“Mexican food can get really healthy, I think it’s a myth that its unhealthy”

Check out her yummy Chilli Rubbed Skirt Steak Taco recipe below, where she recommends using corn tortillas instead of flour, lean meats and all fresh ingredients including vegetables.
