Vincent van der Voort has been working with nutrition coach Govert Viergever since late last year to get fitter.
Van der Voort told his story to Toto Dart Kings. "Thanks to the team, I was able to call on Govert. It's going well, but obviously you don't notice results right away yet, that's more something for the long term. Above all, I should have more energy."
"In the beginning, it was quite difficult to follow such a tight schedule," Van der Voort continued. "I am away from home a lot and then it is not always obvious to eat at the same times. Sometimes it was a bit of a struggle, but now I have gradually found the right rhythm."
Van der Voort wants turnaround after poor start to season: "Coming weeks to put everything in place"
Van der Voort has a clear goal in mind. "I'm definitely not just doing this for my darts career, but mainly for my personal life. In the past, I lived a very unhealthy life and of course you're not going to grow old like that."
"I am also still allowed to eat everything, only now I am much more aware of what I eat. For instance, I eat mostly meat and lots of vegetables. Carbohydrates I try to eat a lot less than I used to."
