Tell us more about yourself:
What are your fitness goals?
I would like to show women, especially moms, that it is possible to live a healthier lifestyle, be happy and content with yourself! A goal of mine is also to look healthy and fit throughout the year.
What are your hobbies?
I always say that I was born with a set of dumbbells! I also enjoy running trail races, cycling and adventure sports.
Do you have any sporting/fitness achievements you would like to share?
Colours at a provincial level in cross country.
Why did you enter the USN Face of Fitness 2017?
To inspire as many people as I can. I was always a happy strong 60kg person before we started with our family. I thought I would just jump right back into shape but after many health challenges, where I kept on gaining weight even if I trained 6 days a week and ate clean, I had to go through a phase of accepting myself and loving myself despite being in a dark space. I eventually managed to lose 35kg and now for the first time in my life I am truly happy within my body from the inside out. I wanted to enter before I had kids 6 years ago but I am now much stronger and bolder than I have ever been before!
