Brendon Ayanbadejo of the Baltimore Ravens got challenged by GSF reporter Justin Lum
Posted July 2, 2013 by Justin Lum in
GetSportsFocus.com – Brendon Ayanbadejo graduated from UCLA and originally signed with the Atlanta Falcons as a free agent linebacker. He served on the Falcons practice squad before being picked up by the Chicago Bears and even spent some time in the CFL and NFL Europe. His journey continued, playing for the Miami Dolphins and landing back in Chicago where he made his first two Pro Bowls as a special teams player. Brendon started to make his name in the NFL with his hard work on special teams and earned a third Pro Bowl spot as a Raven, playing in Baltimore from 2008-2012. All the hard work paid off as he won a Super Bowl ring this year after his team defeated the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl XLVII.
At 36 years old, professional football may be in Brendon’s rear view mirror. He is currently a free agent but he is also ready for a new career path. Brendon has recently completed his MBA at George Washington University and is excited to be a managing partner with Orangetheory Fitness. Orangetheory is about using the science of Heart Rate Treadmill Interval Training, Indoor Rowing, and Weight Training Blocks to take fitness to the next level. Plus, clients are put in an exciting group environment. Brendon will be bringing Orangetheory studios to his home state of California as the representative and franchisee of San Francisco Bay and Los Angeles Area.
