The Sporting Life

The Sporting Life
By The Editors

Every sports fan dreams of learning the game directly from their idols — nobody could teach you the crossover like Derrick Rose, and only Barry Bonds could explain the surliest way to obstruct justice.

Get that kind of one-on-one tutelage, sans grand jury, via Ultimate Experience.

Just launched by a former pro skateboarder and championship mountain biker, Ultimate Experience lets you book immersive sporting activities with champion athletes.

The first experiences start September 15th, and right now you can book:

    Other upcoming packages include a health/wellness retreat in Maui, bike riding in Scotland and a day of racing Formula 1 cars in Texas.

    The one-to-three day experiences start around $1000 (some equipment is provided), with a portion of each ticket package going to the athlete’s charity of choice. Most of the experiences include meals, transportation and, post-experience, dinner/cocktails with the athlete — ensuring your experience, and theirs, ends on a decidedly non-surly note.
