A feature in The New York Times on Monday shared a unique insight into the life of Tom Brady, a quarterback for the New England Patriots, who will play in Sunday’s Super Bowl. Specifically, the article highlighted his friendship with his “body coach” Alex Guerrero, who is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The article states that Guerrero's job description actually “significantly understates his exhaustive reach into Brady’s life.”

“Guerrero is his spiritual guide, counselor, pal, nutrition adviser, trainer, massage therapist and family member,” the author, Mark Leibovich, wrote. “He is the godfather of Brady’s younger son, Ben. He accompanies Brady to almost every Patriots game, home and away, and stands on the sidelines. He works with Brady’s personal chef to put together optimally healthful menus; he plans Brady’s training schedule months in advance. Above all, during the football season he works on Brady seven days a week, usually twice a day. These sessions focus on Brady’s legs, thighs and right arm, the one he throws with, which he calls 'the moneymaker.' ”
