How Michael Phelps Trains Outside of the Pool (And a Giveaway to Get You Psyched!)
We are blogging on behalf of the Visa Go World Olympic Campaign and receive compensation for our time, but the thoughts, words, and promotions on this page are FBG’s, not Visa’s. The gift card promotion is not sponsored by Visa in any way.
We are simply fascinated by the workouts of different Olympians. So when Visa Go World asked us to work with them to help cheer on Team Visa athletes (#VisaGoWorld if you’re Tweeting!) during the London 2012 Olympic Games—and share insights into how its sponsored athletes do the amazing things that they do—well, we dove in, back-flipped and splashed around with Olympic Games happiness.
We’ll be sharing lots of cool Visa Go World content with you during and after The Games, but we wanted to kick things off with the Olympian of all Olympians: Michael Phelps. We know he’s a force to be reckoned with in the pool, but how else does he train? Watch on for Phelps’ workout on land…it’s a smashing good time!
Makes you want to hit (Get it? Haha!) the boxing ring doesn’t it? Man, we are SO pumped for London 2012!
Want to get even more in on the Visa Go World excitement? We’re giving away a $20 Visa gift card to help get you pumped for The Games.

Good luck, ladies and gents! The countdown to London 2012 is on… —Jenn
