Health and fit­ness tips from Dan Carter

Central Leader - - NEWS -

One lucky sports club or per­form­ing arts group is set to be the re­cip­i­ent of a cash prize, de­liv­ered by New Zealand rugby leg­end and Healtheries brand am­bas­sador, Dan Carter.

The sports star has teamed up with Healtheries and New World for a pro­mo­tion, kick­ing off this week, which gives peo­ple the op­por­tu­nity to nom­i­nate a sports club or per­form­ing arts group to win $10,000.

New World cus­tomers will au­to­mat­i­cally be en­tered into the draw when they swipe their Fly Buys card, or New World club­card, when buy­ing any two Healtheries sup­ple­ments or teas. The pro­mo­tion runs un­til July 19, and the win­ner will be an­nounced on Au­gust 10.

Dan knows the im­por­tance of fol­low­ing a few sim­ple steps to help per­for­mance. Here are some health and fit­ness tips from the rugby leg­end:

Do some­thing you love: ‘‘It can be hard to find the mo­ti­va­tion to ex­er­cise when it’s cold. A good way to over­come this is to do some­thing you en­joy, or buddy up with a friend for a run or walk to keep each other mo­ti­vated.’’

Eat well: ‘‘Fresh, whole­some food is the best way to keep up energy lev­els.’’

Stay hy­drated: ‘‘I try to drink wa­ter through­out my train­ing which can be tough at times so it’s im­por­tant to drink plenty of wa­ter post-ex­er­cise.’’

Boost nu­tri­ents: ‘‘Tak­ing sup­ple­ments like mag­ne­sium can help re­lax tight mus­cles. To help sup­port im­mu­nity take a sup­ple­ment like Healtheries Vi­ta­min C.’’

Have fun: ‘‘No mat­ter how you like to ex­er­cise and stay fit, it is im­por­tant to have fun.’’
