My name is Elrico Swarts and I decided to share my body #SuccessInProgress story with CHROME because they played a significant role in my transformation, providing me with the best supplements and training gear.

My transformation started in  April 2018 and is still going strong to this day. I’m striving to be better and make small progress every single day - this is the mindset I had to develop to stick to the process and trust and believe in myself.

A lot of people misinterpret the process and how hard it is to gain quality muscle growth and not just get big by eating a lot. I started at 69kg and with hard work and proper nutrition I worked my way up to 76kg – my current weight. This may not seem like much of a transformation, but to me it is a huge personal achievement. With consistency in my diet and training, I learned that hard work pays off. I was struggling to gain weight and build muscle and if I can motivate any other person out there that might be in the same situation I was in, I would say just keep on working every single day to be better than you where yesterday because in reality that is all that matters. Before you know it, you will reach your goals - slowly but surely.

Something which I learned, and this really stuck with me, is that you have to prepare your food in advance and measure it out in accordance with your calorie expenditure and macronutrient breakdown. This really set me on the path to success as it helped me get into a routine of feeding my body with the nutrients it needs on a daily basis. This, coupled with protein shakes and the necessary vitamins and supplements to help me fill the gaps in my diet, is what got me to where I am today. 

I believe consistency is the key to success. Along with that, time, hard work and preparation are the main factors that contributed to me gaining quality muscle and not just putting on extra weight. 

Your diet should be just as important as your training - I spent more time in the kitchen than in the gym and it really pays off. If you just stick to your plan you will succeed. 

CHROME played a huge role in my transformation, thanks to the team at their Ruimsig store. They constantly guided me on which supplements I should be taking and what my diet needs to look like for me to reach my goals and make some quality gains.
