About the Athlete

On behalf of the South Africa rugby team, Francois is competing in the 2016 Olympics.
His outstanding performance on the field is backed by his intensive and disciplined training off the field with high intensity cardio and weight training. “Looking good and feeling better can’t be achieved with fad diets or unrealistic fitness goals. I believe that we all need to be consistently looking after our bodies. Creating healthy eating habits, incorporating regular exercise and supplementing in areas where our modern diet fails is the only way to better living.”
