At the age of 41, Dwyane Wade, who spent 16 years in the NBA, tells CNBC Make It that he feels healthier now than he ever did while he was on the court.

“I feel like I’m in better shape now than I was actually as a player. I was very muscular, but I didn’t take care of my body in the way that I should’ve because I didn’t have the knowledge,” he says.

“I care more about [my daily wellness practices],” Wade adds. “I understand their importance.”
