Kevin Sorbo: Addict, User, Dealer – His take on golf, fitness & Yoli, Part 1
Kevin Sorbo is a self-proclaimed golf and fitness addict. He’s on the links whenever possible for himself, as well as in numerous charity tournaments like the BMW Pro Am and his own Annual Kevin Sorbo Celebrity Golf Tournament that will be held this year September 23 through 25, at Eagle Vines Golf Course, Silverado Resort in Napa Valley, CA, to benefit his charity, A World Fit For Kids! (WFIT).
As a busy working actor/producer/director, father of three active young children and gifted athlete Sorbo constantly strives to stay in shape. He works out daily, tries to maintain a balanced diet, and takes supplements from Yoli, a Multi-level Marketing (MLM) company that targets acidity as a primary health problem in today’s society.
I recently chatted with Sorbo about his golf game, health regimen, and Yoli. We also discussed how his commitment to Yoli and its products: Alkalete, Truth, and Fun, led him to become an Independent Distributor, selling online and seeking other people to do the same.
Currently, Sorbo’s golf index is a 6.1, but he admitted that that’s an average between his low of two and high of 11 where he’s been the past 20 years. He expressed his goal of achieving a four, but that, unfortunately, due to time constraints finds it difficult “to keep that short game in check,” he stated.
Sorbo’s workouts these days consist of at least one hour per day depending on his hectic schedule. The former Hercules in the 1990s syndicated television hit, “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” pumped iron for two hours daily during his show’s seven-year run. He scaled back and lost muscle for his subsequent five-year role as Captain Dylan Hunt in the science fiction action series, “Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda.” Following that program’s end, he continued to work out, never losing his desire to remain fit.
“Working out is still a drug for me,” Sorbo explained. “The key is I built a nice little gym in my house. I quit going to the gym about a year and a half ago because it was 20 minutes to the gym and 20 minutes back. That’s 40 minutes wasted on the road. That’s my cardio time, so why waste it driving to the gym?
“I have learned to manage my time much better now that I have three kids who are the most important element to my day. I usually try to work out in the morning and need to do it every day or I get a bit grumpy!”
The strapping 6’ 3”, blond, blue-eyed Adonis generally eats well. But sometimes temptation overtakes him despite his Herculean efforts to avoid it.
“I fall off that health wagon a lot,” confessed Sorbo. “I love my sweets and pasta and need to cut that down. My workouts basically balance my habit of eating poorly. I eat a lot of protein and love a good salad.”
Sorbo counteracts his sometimes bad dietary habits by adding Yoli daily to bolster his immune system, strengthen his muscles and joints, and decrease the acidity present in many foods and beverages. The company’s products offer live, active ingredients; minimal calories; natural antioxidants like pomegranate, acai, and goji; stevia, an herbal sweetener; and Alkalete, Yoli’s signature blend of essential minerals and electrolytes that neutralizes acid and stabilizes the body’s pH balance.
“The reason that people don’t get healthier is stubbornness. It’s as simple as that,” Sorbo said. “Yoli has a little package that you can put on top of pizza, salad, whatever to cut down on the acidity that we put in our bodies. Most things that we eat are acid. This is a neutralizer.
“You can put the packets in water to make yourself healthier. The idea behind that is to get off of sodas that don’t quench your thirst and contain sugar. We’ve gotten our bodies to crave sugar and salt. Our country speaks for itself; we’re the most obese country in the world.”
Yoli offers items in powder, liquid and capsule forms. It also has blasts, portable inserts designed to encircle the rim of a 20-inch bottle. Merely twist the blast onto the bottle’s top, press its center to release the ingredients, close the bottle, and shake. Taking Yoli couldn’t be easier!
“I believe in what the drink is doing for me,” added Sorbo. “My energy level is up and I’m sleeping better. All you have to do is go online and look at the ingredients.
“The packaging is important, too – the preservation of the product’s quality and that it’s not losing its nutritional value. Most juices that people buy in the grocery store say they’re 100% juice, but they’re not. By then most of the nutritional value is gone.”
Sorbo became interested in Yoli thanks to a publicist friend who introduced him to Eugene Hong, who is now his sponsor. He tried the products and immediately loved them. He decided to sell Yoli, sharing his positive results to try to help people get healthier and demonstrating how they might earn extra income by becoming Independent Distributors like himself. The popular actor also volunteered to use his celebrity to spread the word about Yoli for which he receives no remuneration.
“I don’t care if somebody wants to sell it,” Sorbo concluded. “It’d be great if somebody wants to come on board because it is a way to make extra money. But I’d rather have 1,000 people sign up and get the product every month than one person selling it. They’ll feel the difference, trust me. They’ll get sick less and feel more energy.
“I wanted to be a celebrity face for them, too. They’re not paying me to be part of this. I’m getting the product. I’m using the product. I tell about the product, so I’m a user and I’m also a dealer!”

Writer’s Note: I tried the Alkalete capsules and Truth powder, and in less than a week began to see and feel positive results. I followed Kevin’s lead and became an Independent Distributor, too! Send Kevin an email… you won’t regret it!
