Rugby player Francois Hougaard currently plays both scrum-half and wing for the Worcester Warriors. Prior to the Warriors, he also played for the Blue Bulls, Bulls, Southern Kings, Springboks & the Springboks Seven South Africa.
On behalf of the South Africa rugby team, Francois is competing in the 2016 Olympics.
His outstanding performance on the field is backed by his intensive and disciplined training off the field with high intensity cardio and weight training. “Looking good and feeling better can’t be achieved with fad diets or unrealistic fitness goals. I believe that we all need to be consistently looking after our bodies. Creating healthy eating habits, incorporating regular exercise and supplementing in areas where our modern diet fails is the only way to better living.”
Q & A
Why did you choose to partner with “NeoLife”?
“For me, “NeoLife” offers more of a holistic approach to wellness. It’s not just supplementing to boost sports performance-it’s about a lifestyle where I do what is good for my body in the long term. “NeoLife” fits perfectly into my active lifestyle and is a seamless extension to my fitness routine.”
What does the “NeoLife” Difference mean to you?
“I am very strict when it comes to what I put into my body. As a professional sportsman I won’t settle for anything less than the best. “NeoLife” is just that. Probably the most important aspect of supplementing for me is doing it safely. “NeoLife” Nutrition is wholefood based and I can trust that what they say on the label is backed by their flawless reputation. I really like the idea that the ingredients are sourced in nature because I enjoy using organic products.”
“The products have definitely made a huge difference in my recovery after high intensity cardio and weight training, and also keep my immune system strong. It’s crucial for me to be in top form so that I can keep up a 6-day a week training schedule. Playing internationally means there is no ‘off season’ and that I have to cope with jetlag and severe weather changes. “NeoLife” products keep me in top form, come rain or shine—they really work.”
KRISZTIAN BERKI HUNGARY
The Hungarian pommel horse specialist and reigning World Champion, Krisztian Berki, met all expectation and won the Olympic Gold Medal at the 2012 Games in London! Other notable achievements are gold in World Championships in 2010 and 2011, as well as gold in European Championships in 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012. His most recent accomplishments on the pommel horse include silver medal at 31st European Championships, bronze medal in the 2014 Hungarian Artistic Gymnastic Championship, gold medal in the 2014 Swietelsky Grand Prix, and gold medal in the Artistic Gymnastics World Championship 2014 in Nanning, China.

“I have a twin sister, who does rowing and triathlons and an older sister who always encouraged us to play sports. All three of us played basketball together. I played for more than 7 years competitively. After earning my master’s at the Faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering, I started working for Ericsson; gave up basketball and began running. It wasn’t long until I fell in love with the sport.
Running is my passion and my lifestyle. I like to run long distances, from road racing to trial, from half marathons to ultra distance. I am confident and hopeful to be apart of the Olympic games in Tokyo.
Within my first year of running, I came across articles about ultra distance, which sparked my interest. I’ve always wanted to do something extraordinary. At age 23, I ran my first Ultra; I ran the Croatian Championship at the International Forrest Gump Race; 132k in 12 hours. I broke the World Record that year (2011) and the absolute record for Croatia. I was also the youngest athlete to run that distance so it turns out my talent for ultra running is a kind of gift from God. I know I can do something good in my life with this specialty.
I’m so excited for this partnership with “NeoLife” to improve my sport performance. I have spent several long periods with injuries where I couldn’t run much. In the past I never paid too much attention to my diet, I used to indulge in sweets and unhealthy stuff now my nutritional routine has changed with “NeoLife”. My results have been excellent.
I started using “NeoLifeShake” before the World Trail Challenge in Portugal at the end of October 2016. On the day of the race I had a “NeoLifeShake” before and after. It really helped me a lot because I was already weary of the racing almost every weekend plus this specific trail was very difficult.
I continued using “NeoLife” before racing in the World 100k in Spain, where I placed second (I was so close to the Gold medal). I had the “NeoLifeShake” 4 days before the race and the night before and in the morning of I had 4 servings. I felt so much energy during the race!”

DR. OLA MADSEN U.S.A
“I started going to the gym and bodybuilding at age 58, and my first show was at 59. I’m going to be 70 in July. I’ve been in 10 shows and I have 10 trophies that I’ve won. In doing that, I’ve had many companies approach me at the shows, offering me all types of products.
It’s not that I’m in that great of physical shape… I mean I am in great shape for my age, and that was the factor. Most guys my age don’t do what I do. So a lot of these companies wanted me to use their products, wear their t-shirts, and all those types of things as marketing for them. They would give me free products and over the last 10 years I’ve used many, many different products, but I’ve never found anything out there that I noticed a difference with.
Now Jerry Brassfield and I have been friends now for 40 years, and we recently got back in contact. So we started talking again about “NeoLife” and I started using the “NeoLife” SPORT Nutrition line along with Pro Vitality. Within a couple of days I noticed that my energy level in the gym and my intensity level was more than it had been, but I just thought at first that it was a psychological thing and it was just a coincidence. However, now it’s been 6 months that I’ve been using the product and overall it’s really increased my intensity to train.
I’m 13-14 weeks out from my next bodybuilding show, which is to become an IFBB Pro Bodybuilder and these products have been a major factor in it. They’ve definitely helped me. I can feel it. I can see it. Just the other day, my training partner was saying “Golly! The intensity that you have…!” And he is 40, so I’m 30 years older than him and he’s having trouble keeping up with me!”
“I rate the “NeoLife” products a whole 10, and I’ve never been able to do that for any other products. I can do that because… (1) It works. (2) The science is behind it. (3) The integrity of the people who are behind it.”
What does the phrase “Living the NeoLifestyle” mean to you?
“It means you become a product of the product. When I’m walking around my community and people see me, see the way I look, the way I act, the way I respond to things… I want people to look at me and say “I don’t know what it is that guy has, but I wish I had it!
You should have that passion, that excitement, that fulfillment, that attitude that you’re alive and full of life. If you’re alive and full of life, everyone wants to be around you and find out what in the world you’re actually doing. So living that lifestyle means you’re taking the product, living the life, enjoying the life, dreaming the life.
Lifestyle is a very exciting word for me. ‘Life’ is God-given, and ‘style’ is ‘How you’re going to live it?’ Through NeoLife, you have no limitations placed upon you. You can do whatever it is you want to do, become whoever you want to become. It’s a psychological principle… You can have more than you have because you can become more than you are. The only thing that’s stopping you or me or anyone else on this earth from becoming who they truly want to be is the story that they keep telling themselves. The interesting part about that is that if we don’t like our life, if we don’t like the story that our life is right now, we can rip up that script and write a brand new story. “NeoLife” is the instrument that can help us write a new story and allow us to be whatever we want to be”.

Being an Olympic Athlete, I have to get my nutrition spot on to keep me in shape and to be able to train as hard as I need to. By using “NeoLife” Nutritionals for the last ten years, I have been able to get all the nutritional supplements I need to prepare myself for sessions and recover quickly afterwards.
Kim Kouwabunpat is a former professional golfer, born and raised in Southern California, most notably recognized from being on Golf Channel’s hit reality series Big Break XI: Prince Edward Island. She grew up as a well-rounded athlete, while also playing soccer, softball, and tennis in addition to golf but dedicated her focus to golf at the age of 9. She started competing at a national level at age 10 and found success as a 5-time Junior All-American, 2-time Canon Cup Team member, winner of 5 individual national titles, and was ranked as high as 13th in the junior national rankings.
Kim continued on with an illustrious collegiate career at Stanford University where she competed on the women’s golf team on a full scholarship all 4 years. She earned 7 top-10’s, 4 top-5’s, was a 2-time All-PAC10 Conference Team member, and earned Most Valuable Player honors on the ’03-’04 season Stanford squad. Kim graduated in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
Upon gradation, Kim turned professional and competed on the LPGA Futures Tour, CN Canadian Women’s Tour, Ladies Asian Golf Tour, Cactus Tour, and California Players Tour. She’s earned 12 top-5’s, including 2 professional wins. Her lowest round is (-7) 65 and (-5) 67 in competition.
She states having a great respect for the game of golf due to its demand for core strength, stability, flexibility, endurance, and mental focus out on the course in order to compete at the top level. Physical fitness in the gym is just as crucial in her training regimen in order to achieve consistency in her shots, distance off the tee, and finesse around the greens.
Since retiring from competitive golf in 2010, she has found a new passion in endurance sports as she is an avid runner and triathlete. She’s completed 2 full marathons, 1 Ironman 70.3 in St. George, UT, and over a dozen half marathons. She is also embedded in her local running community through founding 3 FFP Running Clubs in Southern California, a grass roots based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting fitness, fun, and philanthropy. Their mission is to build local communities by making fitness a fun part of your routine and to make the world a better place, one running community at a time.
“With a full-time work schedule and an active workout and training regimen, “NeoLife” products have helped me maintain the energy I need to get through the day then hit the gym for a workout or the trails for a run. Taking these products has also added a nice structure to my daily intake with a healthy routine. “Pro-Vitality” is an easy way of making sure I’m getting my essentials, nutrients, and minerals. The “NeoLifeShake” are also great to take on the go during my busy weeks!”

Ashleigh’s amateur career was nothing short of outstanding. She won the Ladies Club Championships at the Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club, her home club, every year between the ages of 12 and 17. At age 14 in 2003, she became the youngest player to receive full South African colors, playing No. 1 for her country in the Commonwealth Tournament. In 2004, she became the youngest player to win the Ladies South African Open on the Women’s Professional Tour. She went on to win at least one WPGA (Women’s Professional Golf Association) Tour event as an amateur each year until she was 17 and turned Professional.
Not surprisingly, Ashleigh’s professional career started with a bang in 2007 when she won the Catalonia Ladies Masters in her first season on the Ladies European Tour (LET). Her form continued into 2008 and 2009 when she mixed playing in Europe and playing on the LPGA (Ladies Professional Golf Association) against the best players in the world, earning her the Rookie of the Year title on the LET in 2008.
At the end of 2009, Ashleigh suffered a back injury. 2010 was a year spent recovering and yet she still managed three top 5 finishes on the LET. In 2011, her game continued to strengthen and develop resulting in five top 10 finishes on the European Tour, an Order of Merit ranking of 15, and a win at the Portugal Ladies Open.
Unfortunately, 2012 saw Ashleigh’s four top 10 finishes on the LET interrupted by a hip injury, resulting in her taking time over winter for surgery. Her focus and determination was once again highlighted by her astounding recovery. She finished 2nd at her first event back, the South African Ladies Open in April. She went on to take 2nd again at the ISPS Handa European Ladies Masters, qualified for the Ricoh Women’s British Open, had four top 10 finishes and ranked an impressive 13th on the LET Order of Merit after a late season start! She finished the season on a high, earning her full LPGA card at Q School in December.
There is no doubt Ashleigh will capitalize on her LPGA Tour status, after her fight back from injuries she is more determined than ever to succeed. Ashleigh is one of the most naturally talented young golfers of her generation, this coupled with her winning mentality means that the future is sure to be a very exciting one.

Emily plans to compete at the 2017 Deaflympics in Turkey, where she prays God will continue to use her talent and ability to play tennis to glorify Him.
Along with working out and playing tennis, I felt like the supplements that I was taking helped me recover quickly between workouts. I was able to workout hard everyday without being tired or sore. I made sure to take “Salmon Oil Plus” and “Cal-Mag” to help with that. I also really like the “Liver Plus C” and the protein for energy right before a workout. Also, I believe that the “PhytoDefense” and the “Formula IV Plus” helped me stay at the top of my game, because I didn’t get sick I was able to keep going without taking any days off to recover. I really like these products and I believe they are the best! -Emily Hangstefer
Deborah Meis recently returned from an incredible 6 ½ week European tour with her professional ballet company, where they performed 24 times in 19 cities across Italy, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Serbia, and Austria.
Physically and mentally Deborah felt great thanks to “Pro Vitality”, “NeoLifeShake”, and “Vitamin C”. “My body stayed strong and I had so much energy,” says Meis.
There was a time when one of their accommodations wasn’t quite the cleanest and Deborah caught a little cold that lasted a few days; but even then, she still felt energetic. She remembers telling some of her fellow dancers that she had just been getting over a cold and they said they didn’t even notice she was sick–especially because she had remained so joyful and appeared so full of life even during her cold!
“It is especially hard on tour to keep our bodies in shape because of the constant travel and not having the proper workout facility to take class everyday. Many dancers on my team suffered from injuries: joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons bothering them, but I had no problems the whole trip,” says Deborah.
Deborah began dancing at the age of five and is now a professional ballerina. Over the years, “NeoLife” Nutritionals have proven to be an essential part of her training.
Her mother, “NeoLife” Distributor, Lani Meis, says, “it is important that her brain is sharp and working quickly being at the top level she is at, because when she is pushing her body to do something extra, it needs to be given something extra.”
Taking several “Salmon Oil” and “Tre-en-en” capsules before each ballet practice and performance helps Deborah with brain retention during her strenuous and complicated routines. “It is amazing how much it helps her focus and retain. With these vitamins Deborah can overcome any processing difficulties,” says Lani.
“I am proud to say my body is solid because of NeoLife products—I cannot even imagine what condition my body would be in without these incredible products. Thank you NeoLife!” –Deborah Meis
The type of training I undergo is very physically and mentally demanding. The “NeoLife” supplements allow my body to perform to its maximum potential. Dancers are known for their many injuries as we ask our joints and muscles to do much more than they were designed to do. I am able to maintain excellent health, necessary energy and mental acuity.
“NeoLifeShake” is my breakfast meal replacement before I begin my intense drills for the day. The protein enables my body to maintain high-energy output. It also helps repair sore and tired muscles.
“ProVitality” helps with focus, memory, and concentration, which is very necessary for me to pick up difficult and lengthy choreography.
“Acidophilus Plus” nurtures my digestion. My mom had me start taking “Acidophilus Plus” due to some digestive challenges and 7 years later I have healthy digestion! It’s very nice and relieving.
I also take vitamin C to keep my immune system protected.
The “NeoLife” Nutritionals have helped extensively in my participation this past year in the Ballet Magnificat! Trainee Program. They keep me alert and boost my energy when I need it. Taking “Pro Vitality”, “Acidophilus Plus”, and “Beta-Zyme” helped me tremendously on tour.
SAKIMA MULLINGS JAMAICA
Long before the sun rises in Kingston, Jamaica, Sakima Mullings begins his daily training. 4am runs with alternate wind sprints and hill work need to be completed before his regular workday starts. After work, he commits to another 2-3 hours of exercise with sparring, shadow-boxing, and strength conditioning.
Hard work and sound nutrition have resulted in success—Sakima is the Commonwealth Zonal Middleweight Champion and has a professional boxing record of 18 and 2 with 13 knockouts. He also recently competed in the The Wray & Nephew Contender Competition, and was the champion.
“Pro Vitality” makes me feel stronger and more energized. Before I started taking “Full Motion”, I was constantly fighting against irritation and discomfort with my knee. Now I can train full force without pain. “NouriShake” provides the protein I need to repair and replenish my muscles—so I can be ready for the next day’s workout.
“Pro Vitality”, “Full Motion”, “All-C”.
LISA BLACKBURN BERMUDA
Born in Bermuda, raised in Canada, Lisa Blackburn has competed on the National Swim Teams for both countries. In 2008, Lisa thought her Olympic dreams had ended. She moved to Bermuda for a teaching opportunity, with no thoughts of competitive swimming. But fate stepped in and soon she was working for a company that fully supported her goals and Lisa was back in the competitive lanes.
At the recent U.S. Nationals in Atlanta, Georgia, Lisa achieved a time of 1 minute, 13.21 seconds in the 100-meter breaststroke. Not only did she break the Bermuda national record, at 40-years old, Lisa broke the World Record for her Masters group.
Lisa has continued to have amazing results. She won 4 gold medals at the 2013 Pan-American Masters Championship in Florida, unofficially broke Masters world records, and won 8 medals at the 2013 Bermuda Island Games, including 4 meet relay records. In 2014, she received four bronze medals in the Caribbean Island Swimming Championships and then two gold medals, one silver, and two bronze medals at the Masters World Swimming Championships. And at 42 years of age, she is striving to qualify for and represent Bermuda at the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games.
Recently, Lisa broke the Masters World Record in the 100IM. It is also a new Bermuda National Record and a lifetime best time for Lisa! She also swam a lifetime personal best in the 50 freestyle going 26.50 seconds. Lisa also had a great 200IM swim just narrowly missing the World Record and National Record by less than 0.7 seconds.
For me, the most important part of taking “NeoLife” Nutritionals is that it helps me maintain my nutritional routine and feel “whole.” Although I eat healthy foods, when I’m not taking the products, I just don’t feel as healthy, strong, or complete. In addition to improved recovery time, increased support to the immune system is very important. You can’t perform your best if you feel lousy. When all my teammates come down with a cold, I don’t. As an athlete, you work so hard for so long, and now I am living the athlete lifestyle. It’s a wonderful journey to be on—thanks “NeoLife”.

Tobia Cavallini has had many successes over the past few years. His most recent success has been 1st place in the 2013 Rally di Reggello. Team Energystar, Tobia Cavallini and Sauro Farnocchia, drove the Peugeot 207 S2000 and won the race, distancing themselves from all the competition. The race was very exciting and full of highs and lows. “We knew to have a great performing car that we were sure to get good results. The race was engaging and we were really happy with the final result, also because we did a great job with the car set up. We dedicate this victory to all our supporters.” Tobia and his teammate also won 3rd place in Rally di Marca and Rally di San Martino in 2013. In 2011, he placed 1st in Rally di Reggello, 2nd place in Raly di Proserpina, and 3rd place in Rally di Appennino-Reggiano. In the years between 2008 and 2010, there have been numerous other major successes and wins for Team Energystar.
The nutritionals help me to achieve a very good shape and quickly recover from the efforts after the race. I use “NeoLife” Nutritionals during all the training period and before the races. They help me get the optimum physical condition and make it easy to recover from the efforts of a race. We’re getting great results again this year and I am confident that this collaboration with “NeoLife” will continue to be a success.

MORTEN ANDERSEN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Born and raised in Copenhagen Denmark, Andersen came to the US as an exchange student, attending Ben Davis High school. The school had no soccer team, so Andersen tried out for the football team on a whim and quickly became the team’s kicker. It didn’t take long for colleges to notice this new talent. The next season Andersen was playing for the Michigan State Spartans. At Michigan State University, he was named All-American and Academic All-Big 10 in his senior season.
The New Orleans Saints drafted Andersen in the 4th round of the 1982 NFL draft. His first year was challenging. After his first kick-off he injured his foot, forcing him to miss the next eight weeks of a strike-shortened season. However it did not take long before Andersen earned the name “The Great Dane”. By the time he was done, Andersen made 6 Pro Bowls and 309 out of 389 goals attempted. He scored 1318 points during the time he played for the Saints.
After the ’94 season, the salary cap was adopted in the NFL. Negotiations with the Saints fell through, and so Andersen signed with the Atlanta Falcons for the ’95 season. In his first year with the Falcons, Andersen made Pro Bowl with 31 of 37 goals attempted. In ’98, he made the most memorable kick in Falcons history when he kicked a 39 yard goal in overtime to defeat the Vikings in the NFC Championship.
Andersen stayed with the Falcons through the 2000 season. He then spent a season with the New York Giants, 2 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and a season with the Minnesota Vikings before finishing his career with the Falcons in 2007. During that last season, he had the most accurate season of his career, making 25 out of 28 field goals attempted.
During his remarkable career in the NFL, Andersen is the only player to hold statistical franchise records for 2 NFL teams. He played in a record 382 games. He’s also the lead scorer in the history of the NFL and the all time leader in field goals made.
NFL Records: Most points career – 2,544 Most games played – 382 Most consecutive games scored – 360 Most field goals – 565 Most field goals attempted- 709

“Let me start by saying that I am not paid money to endorse “NeoLife”. However, I am a former professional athlete who has seen dramatic results over a relative short period of time taking the “NeoLife” products. I began taking the “Breakfast Pack”, which contains “NeoLifeShake” and the “Pro Vitality” packet every morning and have been doing it for more than a month. I feel leaner, less bloated and more energetic and mentally sharp throughout the day. “NeoLifeTea” has replaced my coffee and is giving me the sustained energy and focus that I need in my daily business activities. There are lots of demands on my time all the time and I was looking for a product that could help me maintain a high level of energy and focus throughout the day-I found it in “NeoLifeTea”! The “NeoLife” “Salmon Oil Plus” along with the “Full Motion” have been real game changers for me. Taken along with the “Breakfast Pack”, I feel that I have some real winners on my side to support balanced inflammation and the promotion of healthy joints”.

Junior Swimming Champion It’s easy to understand why junior swimming champion Kiara Noades is lengths ahead of the competition when she talks about the support she has behind her. “I’ve been swimming competitively since I was 8 years old and I still love every minute of it. I’ve super-supportive parents who don’t put excessive pressure on me. If it wasn’t for that I wouldn’t have the discipline to practice 6 days a week, with only two short breaks from a hectic training schedule every year” says this bubbly, confident 16-year-old. “Now I even have extra help from NeoLife – the Nutritionals are awesome! It took about 6 weeks after first taking NeoLife that I could really start feeling a huge improvement in my energy levels and focus. Now, I sometimes push myself to do a 2 -hour training session in the morning, and another session in the afternoon!” says Kiara. “I really like the NeoLifeShake Rich Chocolate, love NeoLifeBar Fruit & Nut. I also take Cal-Mag to sleep better and stop me from cramping up in the pool.” “I am really proud of Kiara and how well she’s managing to build a swimming career, while keeping up her studies in her important senior years in high school. I can see that she’s able to focus better since she’s been taking NeoLife products” says mom, Belinda. “Kiara has a great coach at Stellenbosch University, where she trains. Pierre believes, like me, that one needs to maintain a healthy balance between swimming, schooling and just being a normal teenager in order not to burn out. From my experience as a runner I also understand the importance of good nutrition to maintain performance and longevity any sporting career!” she adds. Kiara still manages to socialise and spend quality time with her family, and loves going surfing with her Dad, Roger. “The other day my Dad and I did our first open water ocean swim of 1.6 km – it was such fun. Through swimming I have had such great experiences and met such nice people. My best friends are my fellow swimmers. We all support each other because we know what it takes to swim at a competitive level. We’re always very excited and happy when any one of us does well in a race or qualifies for an important event.” For Kiara, the proof of her success is on the podium. This year Kiara has done better than she ever has, which includes wins at the African Champs held in Egypt last March. She even qualified for a place in the Senior Nationals – amazingly on the 7th race of the competition. Kiara will jet off in August to Indianapolis, in the USA, to represent South Africa at the FINA Junior World Swimming Championship. Kiara has big goals when it comes to swimming. “My next goal is to qualify for the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia. My ultimate dream is to swim at the Olympics. That’s just three years off, so I am working hard to achieving my dream.”

Rugby We recently chatted to star Rugby hooker and one of our latest Sports Ambassadors, Bongani Mbonambi at the Sports Science Institute in Newlands, Cape Town. “I’m hooked on NeoLife. I’m so excited and proud to have joined forces with NeoLife to Make the World a Healthier and Happier Place!” he enthusiastically starts. “The awesome NeoLife Nutritionals have already made an enormous difference in my life, even though I’ve only been taking them since the end of last year. In nutrition terms that’s still early days, so I can’t wait to see how much more that they’ll bring to me on a long-term basis” says Bongi. “Like most athletes who compete at a professional level, I find recovering from training crucial to my performance in competition. That, along with maintaining a strong immune system to minimize downtime, helps keep me going and well prepared for competition. I use Pro Vitality every day and find the single sachet containing all the necessary supplements easy to take and convenient when I’m on the go! I also take NeoLife’s vitamin C for an extra boost in winter.” Bongi admits that the part of his training he finds most challenging is keeping his fitness levels up. “That’s where the NeoLifeShake comes in very handy. When my team and I are doing back-to-back fitness training sessions, and have very short break in between, I’m able to give my body the nutrition needed to keep going.” On days like these Bongi takes up to three NeoLifeShake’s as meal replacements. “What I also like about NeoLifeShake is that although they’re complete and satisfying, they never make you feel heavy or uncomfortable afterwards. Personally, I love the Rich Chocolate flavor and I have never tasted such a delicious meal replacement shake before.” But, for this NeoLife powered athlete, being a part of the NeoLife family is not only about enjoying and promoting great products – it’s about giving back. Bongi grew up in Bethlehem, in the struggling mining belt of South Africa – a place where very little hope exists for many young people. “If it wasn’t for rugby, the support of my family and God’s grace I’m not sure where I would be today. Like most children around me, I grew up with very little chance of making anything of my life. That’s why I want to inspire and motivate others by example. Through my success I want to show kids that with faith and a positive attitude they can become anything they want to, no matter what their background” says Bongi with conviction. Bongi’s unstoppable talent and outstanding performance was first spotted at a Craven Week (South Africa’s top annual rugby union schools event), where he was scouted and offered a scholarship to the prestigious St Albans College in Pretoria. From there Bongi landed a place with the Bulls. In 2012, he made his senior debut playing against the Crusaders at the Super Rugby season in Pretoria. He currently represents the Stormers and now resides in Cape Town. At only 26 years of age he has represented his country in several international games and did them proud. “I believe that with NeoLife as a partner I can make a positive change in many people’s lives. Like me, the NeoLife Family are committed to uplifting communities, while helping people to be their best and reach their full potential!”*

Baseball Matt excelled in both baseball and football in high school. After signing a letter of intent to play football at the University of Washington, he decided to sign as a professional baseball player. In 2004, Matt was drafted to the MLB. With 14 years under his belt, Matt understands the importance of whole food nutrition to not only perform on the field but to also thrive in everyday life with his family. Matt is currently a free agent.
What is a recent accomplishment NeoLife has helped you achieve? For the first time in the last five years, I was able to play my entire season injury free and avoid the Disabled List. I was proud of that as each of the previous seasons, I had spent at least 2-5 weeks out with hamstring injuries, and shoulder issues. I made it a priority to begin each day with a “NeoLifeShake” and “Pro Vitality”, plus “Phytodefense”.* What’s your training regime? During the off-season I workout in the weight room four days a week. I hit and throw at the field 5 days a week. I will get soft tissue work done once every week and half. I try and do a yoga class once a week. In season, it’s not as much since we play every night. But my goal is to do 2-3 total body workouts a week depending on how my body is feeling from the games. So it’s vital that I’m giving my body the nutrients it needs to perform and recover quickly. What’s one tip you would give someone to help them achieve their fitness goals? The hardest part is putting your goals into action and on a CONSISTENT basis. For me, if I don’t do something early in the morning at the same time each day I tend to get lazy, and I’m less likely to follow through as the day goes on. Set your alarm for 4 or 5 AM to get that workout in, or to instantly get up out of bed and head straight to kitchen to make your “NeoLifeShake” and take your supplements to make it happen. I feel the most productive early in the morning, sometimes before the sun has even come up. I like the idea that while other people are still snoozing, I’m fueling my body, and getting my workout done! Doing it every morning at the same time, helps creates that routine and routines are everything especially when it comes to making your dreams a reality.
