Henri Swart: I am hardcore because I am committed

A healthy lifestyle starts in your mind. It is the commitment that you make to yourself to embark on a journey to better yourself—and to stay committed to this journey irrespective of the challenges that you may experience along the way. If you do not have a sense of commitment, you will not be able to reach the long and short-term goals you have set for yourself.

Henri’s goals

As a father of one, a full-time sales representative and a bodybuilder, Henri has made a commitment to himself to reach certain goals and live a healthy life. Henri’s goals for the rest of the year are:

“I’ve been competing in bodybuilding since 2014 while working full-time for USN as a sales representative. Dieting and training for competitions are extremely demanding, especially being on the road the whole day and making sure you pack all your meals and shakes for the day while getting through all the stores I have to see for the day. This requires extreme discipline and commitment to ensure you get in the best shape possible for each competition. Right now, I am getting ready for the Provincials and SA Championships.

USN has the best supplements out there, and I rely on whey protein and amino acids to supplement my diet. Being on the road most of the day while ensuring that I consume four to six solid meals is very difficult. 

I wake up at 04:00 every morning and start training at 05:00. With a one-year-old baby at home, this is my best option. My training is very basic, and I keep it hardcore with minimal talking, no training partner and high intensity and heavy weights. I also stick to the basics regarding my diet. As part of this, I ensure that I don’t miss any meals to prep and do not eat cheat meals, as this won’t get me closer to my goal.”
