Health and fitness tips from Dan Carter
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.’’
