BODYTEC devotees Clint and Steffi Brink are a true power couple! Pinning Clint down to one area of success is tough – he’s a multi-nominated actor, musician, is a qualified Muay Thai instructor and runs an online coaching business with his wife Steffi, called Brinkfit.
Two years ago Clint heard about BODYTEC and decided to check it out. More than a decade of competing in Muay Thai and provincial basketball had left his joints in “repair mode” he says, and decided to switch to body building. “I realised that there is no longevity in a contact sport and basketball; it puts too much impact on your joints.”
A tragic car accident, in which Clint lost his partner, also left him with a surgically restored and broken collarbone. The injuries left him with muscle imbalances, he says. Clint says that he incorporated EMS into his training with enthusiasm because it would help him with these issues as well as develop his chosen sport of body building. “EMS training ensures that my central nervous system and peripheral nervous system are connected, and that I make that transition between the slow twitch muscle fibers and fast twitch, which is needed in the sport of body building. EMS has been super beneficial for fixing all the wiring in my body that I have no control of. BODYTEC has helped pick up up muscle mass due to the regeneration of dormant or lagging muscle fibers.”
Busy with a number of productions, as well as prepping for Muscle Malitia and provincial championships in body building, Clint’s 20 minutes of EMS training a week has been a timesaving game changer he says. His wife Steffi, agrees. Steffi knows her stuff: she is a sports science graduate, a strength and conditioning coach as well as a sports model. She also competes in body building. “BODYTEC is life. I do not see myself without it forming part of my training regimen. I always walk out feeling that I have done a therapy session. It makes training so much more fun and challenging,” says Steffi.
