We’ve partnered with Dis-Chem to help everyone live better with cash back paid into your Live Better Savings account. We asked 5 South African influencers to help us show you how you can save or splurge on your own lifestyle kits. Here, Nomvula Khuzwayo shares her ultimate health kits on 2 budgets.

She has a degree in psychology, a healthy, strong body and knows that fitness isn’t just about working out, but also to fuel your body the right way. Nomvula Khuzwayo, a brand ambassador and fitness influencer, believes the fitness life found her. “I started running as a way to cope with the pressures of being in university and losing my sister,” she says. “The physical gains were and still are a bonus, but my mental health needed it too and still does.”

Along with her strong body, Nomvula’s psychology degree means she knows how important her mental health is to who she is as an individual. “I understand the impact that mental health has on your physical health. To educate people about this, especially in poorer areas, is very important to me.”

Nomvula has put together 2 fitness kits: one for if you’re on a budget, and another if you can afford to splurge a little. “Not only can I buy what I need to live better at Dis-Chem with a budget of either R500 or R1 000, but I also get 2% cash back when I use my Capitec card,” she says.

Nomvula’s ultimate fitness kits

Her message is simple, yet powerful, “You have to want to create a better life for yourself – financially, physically and mentally. There’s a lot of information out there to help you live a better life. The ball is in your court.”

Ultimate save kit:

  • Biogen water bottle
  • Dis-Chem Living Fit Band Set
  • Biogen Passion Fruit Pre-Blast
  • Biogen Apple Twist Amino Power Plus
  • Biogen Peanut Yoghurt Protein Bites

The one fitness product Nomvula swears by is a resistance band or skipping rope. “They’re both great budget-friendly options. I can use either at home or outdoors, and they’re amazing for staying in shape.”

Whether you’re saving or splurging, Nomvula believes that nutrition and hydration are vital when it comes to improving your fitness. “You definitely don’t want to become dehydrated while you’re exercising. I make sure I always have a water bottle that I can refill, plus the Biogen water bottles available at Dis-Chem are affordable and come in different colours,” she says.

Ultimate splurge kit:

  • Biogen Choc Brownie Night Feed
  • Dis-Chem Living Fit Band Set
  • Biogen Passion Fruit Pre-Blast
  • Biogen Apple Twist Amino Power Plus
  • Biogen water bottle
  • Biogen Peanut Yoghurt Protein Bites
  • Biogen Cocopine Water Enhancer
  • Biogen Cola Electrolite (4 pack of 300ml)
  • Biogen Beetroot Raw Energy Oats Bar

If you have a bigger budget, Nomvula definitely suggests adding Biogen’s Night Feed. “The choc brownie flavour might feel like a sneaky after-dinner treat,” she says, “but I know this yummy slow-release snack helps my muscles recover and gives me additional protein.”

She also recommends Biogen’s Amino Power Plus if you can splurge, as it’s particularly helpful for anyone who is looking to train harder for longer, while supporting their muscle recovery.
