Here’s a quick Q&A with Gerhard Brink who came 5th in the men’s transformation category in the latest 8-week Ultimate You Challenge.
Give us a short history of your journey to health and fitness before the challenge.
Well, I was on my way to becoming really fat and unfit also my cholestrol gave me problems so I was really going the wrong way. I didn’t really know how I would have fixed it but luckily my wife saw the challenge and I knew it was time for a change
What prompted you to join the ULTIMATE YOU Transformation Challenge?
The photos was a big help off the previous winners and all around me were friends and family who encouraged me to go for it, I knew if I could get my head into this challenge I can do anything, and of course my wife joined me and that was also a big help.
Give us a quick overview of the nutrition and eating plan that you followed during the challenge.
We used the 28 day plan which allows you to eat 3 times a day. All your light meals are at night.
Give us a quick overview of the training and exercise plan that you followed during the challenge.
