"​​As a pro-pickleball player, supplementing functional mushrooms has really helped strengthen my immune system." - Tyson McGuffin

What is your regimen when it comes to supplements? Why is that important to you?
I'm a huge believer in taking supplements in the morning. I'm a huge fan of quality supplements that have good things in them. I also regularly get IVs to make sure that my body is replenished so I can play at my highest level. Um, I'm a huge believer in prioritizing recovery, not only is it great for my psyche. I feel that whatever supplement you choose to put into your body, you get a much better outcome. If I'm gonna do it better than the rest of the player's on tour, I'm gonna try to be as dedicated and as disciplined about taking care of my body.

When it comes to being a professional athlete, how does taking functional mushrooms impact your game?
​​As a pro-pickleball player, supplementing functional mushrooms has really helped strengthen my immune system. I found that it also improves my cognitive functioning and memory, it also  calms me down when I am dealing with stress and anxiety. It's also a great way to get a boost of energy. All of these things are integral in being the best in my sport.

What is your number one goal right now? What are the things in your life that matter the most to you?
My most immediate goal is to be a great father and to be the best husband. Then my businesses come after that. I own a camp business, and I have a podcast called the McGuffin Show and then obviously I play pickleball professionally. I try to juggle the family stuff (family always comes first!) then of course prioritize kicking ass on the court, and being the best athlete. Then on the other side, I love to be an educator. I own a pickleball training camp, I travel around and teach players how to elevate their game. It's important to me to spend time with those campers, and teach them how to be the very best they can be. 

How do you #CultivateGreat?
Well, it seems like anything that I strive for, I try to cultivate great. Whether it's me being a father, being a good listener and being that best husband that I can be. Anything that I do, I try to strive to be the best and, uh, yeah, whether it's business, my career as an athlete or being a family man.
