Leigh Bodden SpeakerFormer NFL cornerback Leigh Bodden was given the gift to play football at the highest level, however he is now finding just as much success off the field. Having played in the NFL for nine years, Bodden had the opportunity to earn and save a substantial amount of money. In fact, he says he still has much of the $10 million he earned during his playing career from 2003 to 2011.

“To be honest, my check wasn’t that big,” says Bodden laughing. Relatively speaking of course. While some of his teammates earned their money and then spent it foolishly, he did not. “I still drive a GMC to this day,” says Bodden.

Today, using the money he wisely saved during his career, Bodden is launching a new career, financing a group of area gyms throughout the Washington D.C. metro area called Retro Fitness. Thinking of business like an NFL franchise, Bodden said, “I equate it to being an owner in the NFL, my manager here is like my head coach.”

As he begins his new career, Bodden’s success off the field is a lot like his success on the field. After setting nearly every Duquesne University interception record and earning All-American honors in 2002, he went undrafted in 2003 but worked hard to sign as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns later that year. Once with the Browns, he worked hard to earn a starting role on the team, and then worked hard to have a long career in the NFL. So, with a strong work ethic, belief in himself, and the ability to plan for the future both personally and financially, it would be hard to doubt that Bodden will continue to be successful in whatever business venture he decides to invest in.
