AFL star Dustin Martin reveals the secret to his success on the court as he launches his own health and fitness app

AFL Richmond Tigers superstar Dustin Martin is set to launch his own health and fitness app called Drip on Wednesday.

In an interview with Herald Sun On Sunday, the 31-year-old midfielder revealed how his sanity has contributed to his success on the pitch.

‘I think the more successful you are, the more distractions there are. Being able to focus on the things that make you great will make you better,’ he said.

Dustin continued: ‘For me, mindfulness is something you have to be disciplined about and work on – it’s a skill like learning to kick a soccer ball.’

The talented soccer player highlights most of the training programs offered on the app and has hand-selected a group of coaches and athletes.

There are plenty of workouts that focus on HIIT, cardio, strength, yoga, and Pilates, while there are also courses in meditation and mindfulness.

Dustin has made headlines for his frame-shifting, having lost 10kg since recovering from surgery for a torn kidney last July.

The Brownlow medalist was put on a strict fruit-only diet to help recover from surgery. A fruit-only diet is frequently used to treat kidney injury.

Richmond’s Director of Physical Performance Peter Burge admitted in August that Dustin has ‘lost a bit of weight’ due to an unusual diet.

‘He had to manage his diet [for his] health a little over the last few weeks and will get better in the next three to four weeks,’ he said at the time.

‘He is working with the pros and once marked by the experts he will be able to resume some form of light training during the season.’

Dustin has been hospitalized for nine days after tearing a kidney during a brutal on-field clash with Brisbane player Mitch Robinson on July 16.

He missed the final month of the AFL season due to injury.
