Opt for healthy pro­tein shakes sports per­son­al­i­ties told

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo, Se­nior Sports Re­porter

SPORTS per­son­al­i­ties in Zim­babwe have been urged to take healthy pro­tein shakes and build their phys­i­cal bod­ies nat­u­rally in­stead of tak­ing steroids in an ef­fort to get fast and un­nat­u­ral re­sults.

The call was made by the In­ter­na­tional Body Build­ing and Fit­ness Fed­er­a­tion Bikini Fit­ness com­pe­ti­tion bronze medal­ist Shirley Spreeth, who is based in Harare. Spreeth is also a part time per­sonal trainer and mas­sage ther­a­pist.

“Sports per­sons need to take healthy shakes so that they build their bod­ies nat­u­rally with­out any aide of steroids,” she said.

Spreeth also com­peted in the Mr and Ms Zim­babwe con­test last month where she took gold, with Demi Fer­rera com­ing sec­ond while Chantelle Marais was third.

She said the ad­van­tage of tak­ing healthy shakes would be that one’s mus­cles grow nat­u­rally and don’t just turn to fat.

“Your or­gans grow at a rea­son­able pace so there­fore are not un­der huge stress and they also will not be un­der high stress try­ing to ex­crete high tox­ins out of your body from bulk­ing up el­e­ments found in some shakes.

“Shakes also bal­ance sug­ars and there­fore bal­ance the spikes and drops of sugar nor­mally ex­pe­ri­enced af­ter or dur­ing train­ing. Hav­ing a shake helps you watch your weight closer, when sug­ars are bal­anced, hor­mones are bal­anced too,” she said.
