Russell Wilson Spends $1 Million On His Body Recovery Process Every Year: I’m Trying To Play Until I’m 45
Russell Wilson seems to take his body recovery very seriously. The Seahawks quarterback recently revealed that he’s not afraid to go the extra mile when it comes to his body. During his time on The Bill Simmons Podcast recently, Russell Wilson shared that he spends an average of $1 million annually just on his body recovery. He said,
“I probably spend $1 million if not more, a year, just on recovery.”
“I have a whole performance team. I got a whole group. I got a full-time trainer that travels with me everywhere. … I have a full time [physical therapist]. … I have a full-time mobile person that’s working on me, making sure that I’m moving the right way and everything else. I have a full-time massage person, two chefs. We have a whole performance team.”
“I’ve got two hyperbaric chambers. I’ve got a little bit of everything. I get in the hyperbaric four times a week, three times a week. I get treatment every day.”
Some might feel that he’s doing a bit much but Russell Wilson explained why he takes his recovery process so seriously.
“I’m trying to play until I’m 45, at least. So for me, my mentality is that I’m going to leave it all on the field and do everything I can to take care of myself. And that’s such a critical thing because if I feel good, I’m going to play good and I think that’s why I’ve been able to be out in the field every time.”
When you want to play until you're 45 years old, you're going to want to take care of your body. And @DangeRussWilsonis doing just that.

Spending $1 million annually on his body recovery doesn’t seem like it will hurt Russell Wilson too much. As previously reported, back in 2019 Russell Wilson signed a 4-year, $140 million contract extension that officially made him the highest-paid NFL player in the league. He attended the signing day for his new contract extension with his beautiful family by his side. Russell Wilson shared a photo online of this career-changing moment and captioned it,
“My joy. My life. My everything. I thank God everyday for you 3! Love you all!”
