In his post-NFL career, Ulrich co-founded DexaFit and was the chief growth officer of Profitable Ideas Exchange.
Ulrich was also involved in coaching young athletes and was known for his incredible strength, having bench-pressed 505 pounds at the age of 40.
“Keeping up with my four pre-teen sons is the highlight of my life and keeps me on my toes,” the portion read. “I also invest my time in helping young athletes in our area reach their full potential through coaching and training — this is one of my true passions.”
“I can also often be found at the gym, where I recently bench-pressed 505 pounds at the age of 40 — the goal-setting doesn’t stop!” Ulrich stated in his Profitable Ideas Exchange bio.
The cause of his death was not disclosed.
