Mailei emphasizes his belief in multi sport athletes and why it should be considered a better alternative to singular sport athletes. With many parents being advocates for singular sport athletes, Maieli states it helps bring a kids true passion out into those sports and it brings different perspectives to the kids.

When it does come to singular sport athletes, the topic of “burnout” is talked about a lot from Maieli. How single sport athletes are not guaranteed success from specializing in their particular sport, where as they experience a burnout in that specific sport.

Maieli specializes in helping the athletes with the athletic training side of these sports, as he witnesses many athletes that have experienced mental health aspects from this potential burnouts. Especially from injuries that occur for these athletes, Mailei elaborates that mental health is always a component with an athlete that is affected by an injury through his career.

Finally, Maeili shows what possibly goes behind the scenes throughout a physical sport like the NFL, where potentially the treatment that these star players receive in the blue tent or the locker room. Can bring eyes to the NFLPA to protect these players as much as possible.

Maieli looks to bring awareness through the behind the scenes to help the younger generation and our professional athletes of today get treatment that can make them the best player that they can be.
