Making the switch from professional sport into the “real” world is never easy. When you do a sport for so long, it becomes your world, your community, and ultimately a big part of your identity. Finding who you are without it’ can be, to say the least, challenging. When we started Healthy Hooch Kombucha immediately after retirement, we hit the ground running, and it was the best thing we could have done. It gave us new purpose and new goals in an area that we are truly passionate about. Health.
Will grew up as a mountain kid in Whistler, and I grew up on acreage in the Fraser Valley, and over our 15 years together, we’ve always shared a love for sports, the outdoors and food. We were lucky enough to train and race all over the world for more than 10 years together. We spent a lot of time in grocery stores, cooking healthy meals, and looking for healthy alternatives on the road. We spent years researching health products from across the world, unknowingly adding to a much needed future knowledge base.
