You ever had one of those moments where you meet someone and you’re like – this is an awesome human being. Well… introducing Gary te Roller, a plant-based endurance athlete who happens to (lucky for all of us) be a qualified health coach whose aim in life is to make the world a happier place! I dig that.
“Through my own personal struggles with addiction and abuse, by some miracle I turned my life around and wholeheartedly adopted a holistic approach to life. It’s now my turn, to give back, to feed your mind, your soul and inspire you through my learnings.“
I had the privilege of meeting him this morning in my very own one-on-one coaching session at Scheckter’s Raw in Sea Point and devoured Pumpkin Flapjacks with vegan ice cream in the process. Bloody great start to a Sunday morning. Woohoo!
His brainchild is Plantdurance, a health-coaching system that aims to
– delve deeper into your lifestyle
– highlight causes and triggers
– set a plan to reverse some bad habits and
– keep the positive habits growing.
He focuses on eating habits and basic nutrition guidelines all the way to addressing emotions that cause stress to the body.
“One’s vitality cannot be found in a pill or a good ol’ cuppa-joe, but in the nutrients that you feed yourself every day. Through my research I found solace in the notion of nourishing my body by consuming plant-based and whole foods. Soon enough, my recovery became shorter, my endurance and stamina became stronger and my body felt so much lighter.“
If after your first initial consultation you want to work with him, then you can look into doing his 3-month transformation where he will mentor and guide you to create life-changing results.
“My speciality is primarily assisting minimally active individuals that have been caught in the societal trap of instant gratification: “There isn’t enough time”, “I’m too busy” or “I need to relax in front of the TV.” I take pride in offering a holistic approach by offering an intimate nutrition experience over a 3-month period whereby I immerse myself into your current lifestyle and disrupt all that it is that you know – food techniques and demonstrations, recipes, shopping trips, a “pantry purge” and a “rejuvenating restock“
Gary is available on Skype, FaceTime, or even WhatsApp video call and you can find EVERYTHING you need to know on http://www.plantdurance.com/
Whether a Joe (or Josephine) Soap, like me, an endurance athlete (like Gary!) or a vegan who is trying to convince her carnivorous boyfriend that vegans can be athletes too – Gary is your man! He has my stamp of approval!
