Reinhard has always been passionate about training since playing a variety of sports growing up. Reinhard is a firm believer that leading a healthy and active lifestyle has so much more benefits than just the physical side.
The psychological benefits of creating confidence and self-belief while establishing the value of work ethic, commitment and discipline towards a goal is key to success in any part of life. Reinhard loves working with people who are up for the challenge of not just making a physical change, but an emotional and psychological change that will ultimately lead to a better quality of life.
Keeping a balanced and enjoyable lifestyle is an important aspect, as it's about creating sustainable change as opposed to an overly strict protocol which takes away all enjoyment and leads to mental burnout.
Balance and choosing what works for the specific person is key. Growing up in South Africa, meat has always been a staple in terms of nutrition. Reinhard feels his best and performs optimally with quality meat intake, so being partnered with SCM is something that he values tremendously due to the quality of the product and the people behind the company. The fact that the practices are ran in a sustainable and ethical way makes him proud to be associated with SCM and their mission to provide quality without just being concerned about the bottom line.
