Healthy Heart & Mind
We can get inspiration from Juice Plus+ Ambassador Brittany Hochevar-Hart, who began using Juice Plus+ products at the start of 2019. “Just as much thought has to go into the fueling as it does the training,” explained Brittany about her decision to use Juice Plus+ products.
“You want to run on premium fuel.”
In her owns words, Brittany hails from “a lineage of hard-working, fun-loving, faith-abiding, life-enthusiasts”. She was born in the steel city of Pueblo, Colorado but grew up all over the United States, where chasing dreams was bred and nurtured and sport became the family business.
She attended Long Beach State University where she received Broadcast/Journalism and Marketing degrees. While there she went to two National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Women’s Volleyball Final Fours, was a finalist once and an “All-American” twice.
Following graduation, she was an alternate on the 2004 U.S. Women’s Indoor National Team, and won a bronze medal with the U.S. Women’s National Team at the previous year’s Pan American Games.
She has racked up around 100,000 miles every year for the past six years, circling the globe competing on the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB) Beach Volleyball World Tour and the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP) domestic Pro tour.
Although committed to professional volleyball, the thoughtful, intellectual Brittany spends her spare time writing, designing, speaking, teaching and tending to her Tower Garden by Juice Plus+.
