Nolan Harrison, NFLPA Senior Director of Former Player Services, remarked the NFLPA is excited about the opportunity to partner with Retrofit and added that its members through this innovative weight loss program will receive private lessons in fitness, nutrition, and mindset. Harrison added the partnership with Retrofit shows NFLPA’s commitment to strengthen and improve the health of its players once they leave the gridiron.

Reggie Smith, Retrofit Vice President of Business Development and former NFL player, was instrumental in introducing the program to his fellow former players.

Smith, who played in the NFL for the Denver Broncos and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, introduced Retrofit to NFLPA members at a NFLPA Former Players, Chicago Chapter meeting hosted by Chicago Bears All-Pro Kicker Robbie Gould.
