Michael Phelps says this morning routine helps him be ‘a better dad, a better husband, a harder worker’


The daily routines of some of the world’s most successful people — from Richard Branson to Oprah Winfrey — include a morning workout. And Olympic champion swimmer Michael Phelps is no exception. In fact, the star athlete says exercise helps him be more successful.

“Being able to just get out there and sweat is something that I need,” Phelps tells CNBC Make It. “So I kind of have to make sure I get that little bit of time, whether it’s 20 or 30 minutes, to myself. Just to get ready, to get prepared so I can be a better dad, a better husband, a harder worker.”
