A Winning Formula
We sat down with New Zealand
rugby sevens player superstar Ruby Tui to find out how she stays match fit.
What does rugby mean to you?
Rugby is an important part of New Zealand culture. I grew up watching it like many
other young Kiwis, with my parents screaming and waving at the TV. It is an
honour to be able to wear the black jersey with my family name on the back and
represent my country in my favourite sport, especially representing New Zealand
in the Women‘s team.
How did you come to Rugby? Who brought you to it?
I played every sport possible, but it wasn‘t until university when I discovered
Women‘s rugby. I joined a club in Christchurch, an all-women‘s team, playing my
little heart out. Back then I was small, but my heart was huge and my attitude
How does it feel to be going to the Tokyo Olympics next year?
Winning silver at the Rio 2016 Olympics was an amazing learning experience. Tokyo is
going to be huge. The team isn‘t selected 100% until two weeks out from the
Olympics, so we must make every tournament in the lead-up. This is something
that keeps driving me and I am really looking forward to the challenge.
How do you use Nuzest in your routine?
I use Nuzest every day, specifically after the gym. I mix Clean Lean Protein,
Good Green Stuff and coconut/ almond milk in a shaker, shake it up and away I
go, super easy. When I leave my training, I know I have given my body the
necessary fuel it needs to recover, and I like to think I get extra gains out
of my session. Switching to Nuzest, I 100% notice the difference, I never feel
heavy or get a sore gut, even if I take it three times a day. I feel lighter,
faster and have more energy. For me it was a game changer, especially where we
train multiple times a day, I can‘t believe how much of a difference it made, I
just love it!
How do you maintain peak performance?
I try to keep my base nutrition good, get enough sleep and keep on top of my mental health. I feel mental health is very important, I always ensure I have downtime and time to reflect on myself. I love going to the beach, putting on a meditation track and just chilling out. Family time is also important.
