Ichiro Suzuki, Outfielder, Seattle Mariners
A 10-time MLB All-Star and a folk hero in his home country of Japan, Ichiro is one of only three players to collect more than 4,000 professional hits. (He accrued 1,278 hits in the Japanese league before joining the Mariners.) At 42, he was on the 2016 active roster for the Miami Marlins, a testament to his career-long devotion to fitness. Suzuki practically lives in the gym, but you won’t find him lifting weights. Instead, up to four times per day he goes through a flexibility routine that requires eight specialized machines, targets often-overlooked joints and regions (like the scapula and pelvic areas), and emphasizes improved blood circulation. It’s one of the reasons he’s been on the disabled list just once in his MLB career.
