Sit down with a cuppa and take a few moments to get to know one of our newest Team USANA Athletes, Regan Gough…
How did you hear about USANA?
It was through my coach and his wife (Ivar & Marya Hopman) and it was from nicking some of there product when I was a litt le unhealthy, or travelling etc. I immediately saw the benefits, seeing me using USANA prducts daily now.
What’s your favourite USANA product and why (please send a selfie with the product)?
I think the best products are the supplements (Multi-mineral, Bio Mega, Antioxidants) as I constantly feel really good using these products. They have kept me healthy from the day I have used them.
What’s your tip to staying fit and healthy?
Riding your bike 20+ hours a week! 😉
Who’s your sporting idol, and why?
I have many around me, not particularly current cyclists but cyclists/ex cyclists who are mentors to me. I could name a lot!
How did you get involved in Cycling?
My family has always been very cycling orientated, through my dad, uncle and cousins. My cousins (Westley & Fraser) played a pretty influential part getting me involved, passing on their experience and knowledge.
Tell us about your training schedule:
Training for me varies throughout different times of the year. As I am a road and track cyclist, they are almost like a different disciple meaning there are specifics for each. Track phase will include high intensity sessions, with a lot of time in the gym and on the track, and my road phase would consist of more miles on the road meaning my riding time a week would almost double. In saying that, I am consistently training 6/7 days a week, some days being ‘double days’.
What are some of your career highlights to date?
2014 Junior Points Race World Champion
2014 Junior Madison World Champion
2015 Elite Team Pursuit World Champion
What’s coming up for you?
I am targeting on the World Cup being held in Cambridge in December. New Zealand’s first World Cup, and will be very humbling to be wearing the World Champ rainbows in New Zealand. From then continuation of form into the World Champs and beyond to try and gain selection to Rio.
