If there is one thing that can make an athlete rise above the rest in the competitive world of professional sports, it is passion. Twelve-time Pro Bowler and future Hall-of-Fame linebacker Ray Lewis is one of the most passionate people in the world of sports, and his unparalleled success both on and off the field are a direct result of his passion.

With a list of records that will unquestionably land him in a post-career place amongst the other legends of the game in Canton, Ohio, Ray Lewis’ on-field abilities speak for themselves. The result of years of hard work and dedication is easy to see on the field, but when you’re as passionate about life and as personable as Ray Lewis is, life in the off-season is just as entertaining as the real deal.

If you follow Ray on Twitter, then you already know he keeps busy with a whirlwind of projects, including interviews, speaking to young adults about leadership, and the Ray Lewis Official Workout App. Ray’s obviously got the workout part of things down, as proven by 12 Pro Bowl Selections and 10 All-Pro selections (both of which are NFL records for a linebacker), and as the first pro athlete to offer his workout regimen to his fans, he’s constantly sharing his passion and helping make the future better for those aspiring athletes.

Like most of us, Ray remembers the first time he ordered up a pair of shoes from Eastbay as well. Check out Ray’s most exciting Eastbay moment below and download his official workout app from his website, http://www.raylewis52.com/
