Basketball Yoga Blast


Do You Know That You Can Achieve NBA-level Fitness in the Time It Takes to Scroll Through Your Facebook Feed?



I was watching my new baby girl sleeping in her crib, watching her belly rise and fall with each small breath. I then looked in the mirror next to the crib at my belly, which still hadn’t recovered from giving birth.

My WNBA team needed me back in tip-top shape for the upcoming season, and I needed a way to get back into the kind of physical condition that would enable me to maintain my elite level of performance.

I had done some yoga when I was pregnant, and it helped calm my mind and my nerves while improving my flexibility (no easy thing for a pregnant lady). My NBA husband, Shelden Williams, started doing my yoga routine with me, just to show support.

I knew my teammates would expect me to return to play, ready to rumble. As a two-time league MVP, All-WNBA six times and two Olympic medals, my teammates look to me in crunch time. They needed to trust that I was ready, again, to accept that challenge.

Simply performing my daily yoga routine wasn’t going to provide me with the complete workout that I needed to get back to being the best of the best.  While I was looking in the mirror at my belly, the light bulb went off.

Could it be this simple? I was surprised that no one had thought of this before! If I was right, I knew that I’d just solved my recovery challenge…and Shelden’s nagging injuries. More importantly, I thought that this solution would work for anyone, regardless of fitness level.

And I was right. In just 30 minutes a day, you can achieve the best shape of your life, no matter how old you are or how many times you can jog around your block. Our discovery is helping us maintain our all-star status. Just think what it can do for you!

To Your Health,

30 Days to NBA-Level Fitness + Zen-like Tranquility

I was sitting at the top of the bleachers with the top button of my jeans undone, because my pants were too tight. My belt hid the unbuttoned button. I was NOT buying a larger pair of jeans. This pair already was larger than what I wanted to wear.

I was watching my teenage daughter play basketball, and I kept wondering… if I hadn’t gained this additional weight, could I still be playing in the adult basketball league at the township center? I wasn’t the best player, but, who cares, it was a good way to exercise and stay in shape.

Now, my knees ached, and my lower back felt as though Minions were punching me, even just picking up a bag of groceries. My doctor suggested blood pressure medication because my numbers had crept above where he’d like to see it.

Watching my daughter sprint up and down the court, making baskets, snatching rebounds and stealing the ball from her opponent was inspiring. I wanted to get back to the township league, but more importantly, I wanted to be in the kind of physical condition that I needed to be for everyday life.

And I wanted to be able to button my top button.

Thanks to a recommendation from my neighbor, I can. To tell you the truth, that top button now is on a pair of jeans with a 4” smaller waist than the pair I wore to my daughter’s basketball game. I’m also back playing in the Rec League at the Community Center…and scoring baskets on players half my age.

That’s why I’m going to share with you how you can achieve a fitness level you haven’t had since high school, how you can score more points in your adult league (if that’s your thing), and how you can do it in less time than it takes you to scroll through your Facebook feed. It’s also why I became an early investor in the program.

This unique hybrid program will keep you out of the BORING zone, and it will provide you with a complete mind/body workout.


Listen, I played a few different sports in high school, and I was never an all-star, but I was good enough to be a regular contributor on teams in different sports. I trained for all of them– running, weight lifting, skipping rope, sprinting and practicing the necessary skills for each sport.

Why do I need someone to coach me or to train me on how to get back into shape?

Because I’m not a teenager anymore, and I don’t have hours in a day to run and jump and play and practice. Because as I’ve gotten a little older, my body changed, and I need to change how I treat it if I want to get the best from it.

I mean, it’s not like Unbuttoned Pants Syndrome is a new fashion statement. But it snuck up on me. I thought I was eating right. I thought I was active enough to maintain my weight and fitness level. I thought I was doing things the right way.

My unbuttoned jeans made me evaluate my situation…and I came to a new conclusion. And it wasn’t just a slight change in my routine…I blew up the blueprint!

Basketball Yoga Blast is the only fitness program that combines yoga with basketball drills. Yoga provides a variety of exercises to improve flexibility and enhance your muscle tone while also giving you the calm and focused brain that you need.  The basketball drills improve your cardiovascular capacity, your muscular strength and your agility and endurance.

No yo-yo diet and buying hundreds of dollars of fake food every month. No costly gym membership that you won’t be able to use very often.

I have to admit that my biggest hang-up was the yoga part. I mean, seriously, how many men will admit to doing yoga? How many guys will even consider doing yoga?

But according to the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), “the purpose of yoga is to build strength, awareness and harmony in both mind and body.”

Natalie Nevins, a board-certified osteopathic family physician explains, “the relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches and carpal tunnel syndrome.” Dr. Nevins went on to say that, “yoga also can lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia.”

I told you that I blew up the old blueprint!

In addition, the AOA listed additional health advantages for doing yoga:

*Increased flexibility

*Increased muscle strength and tone

*Weight reduction

*Cardio and circulatory health

*Improved athletic performance

*Protection from injury


The other thing that got me past the yoga taboo was this. Basketball Yoga Blast was developed by Candace Parker and her husband, Shelden Williams. Parker is the former NCAA Women’s Player of the Year and NCAA Champion at the University of Tennessee. She’s gone on to become the MVP of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and has led her team to a league championship. Shelden Williams is the former Duke University standout and a player in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The dude is 6’9” and 250 pounds.

When I saw Shelden, on the demo video, doing a variety of yoga moves, I knew right there that, if Shelden Williams can do yoga, so can I. It’s not like I was going to start sipping green tea and eating bamboo sprouts for lunch.

Now that I was almost past the whole yoga hang-up, I started wondering about the traditional fitness buzzwords like ‘cardio’ and ‘muscle building.’

That’s where the ‘basketball’ part of Basketball Yoga Blast comes in. See, Candace started doing yoga after she gave birth to the couple’s first baby, and she needed to get her body ready for the rigors of the WNBA. She’s not just an average player, she’s a league MVP. Shelden started doing yoga with her just to be supportive. Then he found out how yoga improved his flexibility, which had been a major issue for him with nagging injuries at various points in his career.

But the two of them knew that yoga wasn’t going to be enough. So, the duo compiled a series of their favorite, fun and challenging basketball drills. After they developed this series of basketball drills, they combined them with the yoga exercises.  They found that the combination provided both of them with the overall mental and physical workout they both required to compete at a high level in their professional leagues. And, they knew this will work for anyone, regardless of age and fitness level. You don’t even have to be able to dribble a basketball.


I’m a skeptical person, so I had to investigate some more…

According to, some of the Top Ten health benefits of playing basketball include:

*You can burn up to 900 calories for every hour of playing basketball

*It improves cardiovascular health, which reduces the risk of heart disease

*It develops concentration and self-discipline

*It builds bone strength

*It develops better motor skills and coordination

*It provides a full body workout

*It improves spatial awareness

When I put all of this information together, I knew that I’d found the exact program that not only I was searching for, but more importantly, what my body needed. And I know that it will work for you, too!

“As Head Coach of Amateur Basketball Clubs of America, I work with many players who have day jobs and busy lives, but also want to pursue their passion for the game of basketball… People who stay involved in athletics are usually better disciplined, better focused and healthier overall… I believe that a daily workout routine is the most helpful in staying slim and agile. After trying Basketball Yoga Blast with my teams, the results have been amazing!”

According to, an annual membership at Planet Fitness will cost you a minimum of $250. A similar commitment to Gold’s Gym will run you somewhere between $510-$530 a year.

Sure, they have lots of fancy equipment and plenty of dumbbells to hoist. But is that what you need?

According to Bloomberg, the average American pays $54 a month on a gym membership.

If you don’t want the ‘muscle head’ atmosphere, but still want the peace of yoga, says that the cost per month membership for yoga classes can run you between $100-$150. says the average one-month plan for 30 yoga classes is $190, while just 10 sessions could fleece you of about $135.

I don’t know about you, but a membership of any kind would be like flushing money down the toilet for me. I’m up about 5:30 in the morning so that I can eat, shower and dress and make my 40-minute commute on time. Then, the Mrs. and I have to coordinate who’s picking up which kid and where…are we carpooling other kids home? Then we have to team up to get some dinner on the table before too late, harass the kids about getting schoolwork completed, take out the trash, load the dishwasher, pack school lunches for the next day, fold a load of laundry or iron my dress shirts for the next few days. By the time we’re settled down for the night, it’s 8:30. That’s time to chill, watch some sports on TV or read a little. Am I going to the gym at 8:30? Sorry, NO.

That’s why Basketball Yoga Blast was an awesome investment for me.

Trust me, I know how you feel. I was in your sneakers not very long ago. Then I found this:

–According to the Harvard Medical School

“Yoga promotes becoming a mindful eater, meaning…practicing yoga helps you be more aware of how your body feels so that you don’t eat when you’re full, which also reduces emotional and stressed eating.”

And this:

–According to WebMD

“Yoga has been around for 5,000 years – it’s NOT a fad.”

And finally:

–According to Better Health Channel

“Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world. It builds endurance, improves balance and coordination, and it develops concentration and self-discipline.”

“I’ve found that your program helps me to maintain the fitness and stamina levels I need to manage work, kids, and home… For all of us, the best time of the day is when we’re all together – and Basketball Yoga Blast makes it fun for all of us to play basketball and stay healthy…”

                                                                                                -T. Young
