Cherine and Shaun Neveling’s hard work and training paying off!Over the past year i have been working with Shaun to get fit, supple and injury free. Shaun initially came to see me about a shoulder problem and then decided to stick around for my for some surf/core training. Not only did Shaun get back into shape, but he is now doing Iron man’s. Shaun has never competed any iron man races before. In his first Iron Man 70.3 in East London in January this year he came 10th in the age category 30-39, not bad for a first timer. Shaun has been training hard since then for his up and coming Iron Man race in PE. The race involves a 3.8km swim, 180km cycle and 42.2km run.
His wife Cherine also started training at the medical centre about 6 months ago, is hot in Shaun’s persuit and has achieved highly in her own set aside goal of doing a triathlon. Cherine competed in the Bonita Ultra at midmar a few weekends ago. The triathlon was made up of a 600m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run. Cherine placed 2cnd in her age category of 30-40yr olds and 7th in the women overall. Cherine’s is also preparing for her next triathlon in hopes of bettering her times.
Its never too late to start something and concor your goals!
