Wow. Indian Wells. What an experience it’s been (hope you’ve been following along on Twitter at #usanaWTA)

For those who haven’t been following along, I and several of my colleagues have spent the last two days enjoying 85-degree temperatures under clear blue skies in Indian Wells, California, and we’ve had the opportunity to interact with some truly remarkable athletes.

We’ve met with many of our WTA USANA Brand Ambassadors, including Aleksandra Wozniak, Liezel Huber, and Zheng Jie.

Today, we’re excited to visit with Melanie Oudin and Sam Stosur.

And yes, if you’re keeping score at home: Three of those athletes are defending US Open champs.

Aleksandra Wozniak, the top-ranked Canadian women's tennis player, joined USANA for a photo/video shoot at Indian Wells on March, 4. 2012.

But even more, all of these athletes are wonderful human beings, exceptionally professional, and genuinely nice. It was a pleasure working with each of them and we’re proud they are part of Team USANA.

Be sure to keep an eye on USANA’s social media in the coming weeks and months for fun features we did with several of our Brand Ambassadors. I did a video series getting “a little personal” with many of the players — keeping in mind USANA’s commitment to personalization.

I also gathered a bunch of behind-the-scenes photos and video that you won’t see anywhere else (see, it pays to be a fan of social media).

We wish the best to all the elite WTA athletes who will be competing at the BNP Paribas Open, which kicks off soon with first-round play. If you can’t attend in person, be sure to check out the TV schedule.

More from Team USANA

Here are a few other highlights featuring members of Team USANA!

  • Congratulations to Sarah Hendrickson, a member of the Visa Women’s Ski Jumping Team, who continues her phenomenal season. She recently soared to her eighth World Cup victory — out of 12 events — in Japan last weekend. The final competition is set for Oslo, Norway, on March 9. Plus, she also was featured in this ESPN High School feature.
  • In other WTA news, Liezel Huber is riding a three-tournament win streak with partner Lisa Raymond. Here’s a feature in which the dynamic duo talks about longevity and future goals.
  • Sam Stosur , the 2011 US Open singles champ, advanced to the finals of the Qatar Total Open last month.
  • I had a chance to chat with Tony Jeffries, an Olympic bronze medalist boxer, last week. What a great guy. He’s a big supporter of USANA’s RESET program and is letting the world know via social media. I’ll have more on the blog from our interview, but for now, be sure to follow Tony on Twitter (@Tony_Jeffries) and like his page on Facebook.

    We had an awesome time in Indian Wells! I can’t wait to go through all my video footage and start getting it posted on the blog, Facebook, YouTube, etc.

    I must say, USANA has first-class brand ambassadors. Each of the players was very accommodating with photos/videos/silly questions/etc., and they always had a smile on their face.

    I’ll be cheering them on at Indian Wells and throughout the rest of the season. Go Team USANA!
