Rehab and recovery with Rubin Statham

Rehab and Recovery with Rubin Statham from Nuzest on Vimeo.

NZ tennis player, Rubin Statham talks to Nuzest about the secret nutritional combo he uses to balance a lack of fresh fruit and veggies on tour.

“Winning a match for your country is pretty special. When you’re playing up to five hours, sprinting around the tennis court – it’s a pretty brutal sport. What you put your body through is crazy. If you don’t enjoy it, you’re not going to last.”

Eating well when you live life on the road can be challenging and nutrition is such a huge part of recovery. “It’s tough in these different cities to find the right food to eat. So, I started to use Good Green Stuff to combat a lack of fruit and vegetables. It’s one of the reasons I’ve had my best year on tour.”

One shake with Good Green Stuff, Clean Lean Protein and Beetroot powder in the morning and another after a match, helps Rubin put what he needs back into his system so he recovers more quickly the next day.

“It’s pretty exciting, you get to travel the world and play the sport you love – beats sitting in an office all day.”

Picture this...The fresh air washes around you, leaving in its wake the residual stress from your hectic week. The hum of the tyres on the road and mechanical whirr of your freshly oiled chain and gears are the only indicators that your forward movement is being assisted.
