Propelled by Isagenix®, Alpine Ski Jumper Soars To Record Lengths
During a run for a spot on the U.S. Nordic Jumping Team, Rolf embarked on an extreme diet to lose 25 pounds and get his 195-pound body down to a leaner competitive weight for alpine ski jumping.
“It was against my better judgment, but I needed to be light because fat don’t fly,” explains Rolf. “So I did what the Nordic guys do, which was train hard, eat rice cakes and practice a lot. But I lost all my muscle mass and not the body fat.”
The diet helped him get to the Olympic Nordic jumping training facility in Park City, Utah, but the 32-year-old’s body was weakened. After four days of training, Rolf’s muscles were shot. The experience left a lasting impression and the pro knew he needed to get stronger in a healthier way. After a year of searching for the best nutritional approach, Rolf was introduced to Isagenix®. Reluctant to try it at first, the athlete was blown away by his results.
“At 13% body fat I was leaner than after that crash diet, and I was 12 pounds heavier,” says Rolf. “I was sleeping better and had more energy. I had been on mass quantities of other supplements and they worked, but not as well as the IsaLean® Shakes, Cleanse For Life® and IsaPro®. Not even close. I won’t ever use anything else.”
The proof was in the pudding at the 2011 Winter Carnival Pro Alpine Flying Championships in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, which the world record holder had dominated for nearly the last decade. After five years of training and finally finding the right combination of exercise and nutrition, Rolf stomped his competition and amazed everyone by surpassing his previous world record by 2 ½ meters.
“I have been jumping for 15 years professionally and this is by far the best season in my jumping career. I believe it was the Nutritional Cleansing that gave me the edge,” says Rolf.
Although his days are packed between training and running his 900-member Bozeman gym, Rolf couldn’t help but channel his belief and enthusiasm for Isagenix into a business that for now is paying for the athlete’s voracious appetite for Ionix® Supreme, IsaLean Shakes and Cleanse For Life.
“I can honestly say that the one thing that helped me become a better athlete was Isagenix,” proclaims Rolf. “It’s great for recovery, cleansing, fat reduction, muscle increase and mental clarity. After Isagenix I was a different beast.”
