Steven Taylor

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor

 

Newcastle United defender Steven Taylor has launched his own website, and is holding two free workshops at St. James' Park on Sunday to teach fans about a healthy lifestyle.

The centre-back, who has made more than 230 first-team appearances since graduating from the Magpies' Academy, created www.steventaylor27.com during the summer.

The website is linked to Herbalife - a global nutrition company - and Taylor, along with experts from Herbalife, will be at the stadium this weekend, where they plan to educate the fitness conscious people of Tyneside.

"Being a professional footballer, healthy eating and nutrition are things I am very passionate about, and I want to pass on my knowledge and put something back into the community," Taylor told nufc.co.uk.

"Anyone who turns up on Sunday will get the opportunity to learn all about living a healthy, nutritious lifestyle. They will be able to sample hundreds of products and ask questions about the benefits it can bring.

"People may not be too sure about Herbalife when they turn up but at the end of the sessions they will be amazed at what it has to offer.

"The amount of interest we've had in six weeks has been unbelievable and the results are already showing on people who have signed up. Myself and a few of the players at the Club are using the products and we have all noticed a massive difference already."

Two free workshops will be held in Club 206 at St. James' Park on Sunday, from 1-3pm and 4-6pm, where Taylor and Co will discuss ways for people to become healthier, regardless of age, sex or fitness levels.
