Patriots quarterback Tom Brady gave an exclusive interview to TB12 Sports (his own company), where he discussed playing at age 41, pliability and more.

One of the biggest takeaways was the quarterback revealed there are discussions being had of opening up more TB12 Sports Therapy Center locations.

Right now, there's just one location at Patriot Place.

"We couldn’t be more excited about what’s coming next for TB12," Brady said. "What we do here at the TB12 Sports Therapy Center has changed my life and vastly extended and improved my career, and I’m excited to share that same kind of experience with as many people as possible. So much of what we’re doing at TB12 is built around that idea of not only trying to recreate the experience I’ve had, but make it more accessible, and tailor it to others in a way that works great for them and their goals. At its most fundamental level, that mission comes down to how well we can train Body Coaches and our ability to give people the best tools and information. We’ve just wrapped up development of our Body Coach Certification program, and we’re excited to start training more TB12 Body Coaches soon.

"We’re also thinking through locations for our next Sports Therapy Center, and we’ve got some great new products coming out this year that I think everyone will love. Basically, if it’s something I do and have found helpful, we offer it; if it’s not, we don’t. The most important thing to me is that we constantly improve our ability to make a huge impact on the health and lives of everyone who comes through the door, and that they always leave here feeling — and getting — much better than when they came in."

Brady also said playing at age 41 is more fun than ever, but did acknowledge he can see the end.

"It’s more fun now than ever," he said. "I feel like I understand the game better than I ever have, and I feel like I can be a lot more decisive out there. Especially over the last eight years or so, I’ve developed a much more intuitive sense of my surroundings on the field, and I feel more comfortable out there than ever because I've seen a lot of the same situations before. I’ve also trained hard this off-season to improve my movement and anticipation.

"I’ve also begun to treasure the moments a bit more, I think. The reality is, no matter how much you prepare, it can end at any moment with the wrong kind of hit. I guess it’s an interesting position to be in because I can see the end line now, but I still feel like I have a lot to play for, a lot left to do in my career, and a lot left in the tank. It’s motivating to me to finish the right way — by being healthy and playing at a championship level. I’ve had a lot of incredible support over the years, and I’ve been very lucky to play for the best organization for my entire career. We’ve come a long way to get to this point, and doing everything I can to keep that going and continuing to forge into uncharted territory for as long as we can is a big motivator for me. I want to help our team build on the standard we have set over many years. I love this game, and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to go out and play every day at my age, and I want forge a path for others to do the same — if that’s what they want."

Brady and the Patriots will open the season next Sunday against the Texans.
