Ever wondered why your tank can feel empty, even though you’re doing everything ‘right’ when it comes to a Healthful Lifestyle?

Exercise – tick

Sleep & rest – tick

Eating well – tick

Water intake – tick

Breathing – tick

Enjoying our work –tick

So what’s going on?

Interestingly, the challenge you’re experiencing maybe the same one that top athletes face. You see, many top athletes are in a dilemma about the best ways to keep themselves healthy. Whilst they’re often ticking as many of the boxes above as you or I, even then – they notice health challenges developing…flu’s, injuries, slow recovery from trainings and injuries etc.

So when all of us are doing so many things right – what’s the rub?

The truth may surprise you!

And it’s something I confirmed recently, when interviewing two of New Zealand’s Commonwealth Athletes, on stage at Auckland’s Sky City.


You see, both of these athletes – NZ’s top gymnast David Bishop…


…and NZ’s top light-welterweight Leroy Hindley…


…explained that they realize that even though they eat as well as they can do (like you and I do), they still have gaps in their nutrition.

So the obvious answer is to use nutritional supplements.

Although as they pointed out – not all supplements are made equal! In fact, some athletes have actually tested positive for banned and even harmful substances when they’ve taken off-the-shelf ones, or even in a direct sponsorship situation.

WOAH! As they explained – way to risky!

So, instead David and Leroy opt for top manufacturing standards and a million dollar guarantee with the ones they use. This means they not only get the results they need in training and competition – they also have 100% peace of mind if they’re ever drug-tested.

Whilst nothing can replace a healthy diet, it’s worth thinking about those gaps in our nutrition – that are there whether we like it or not!
