Tell us more about yourself:
What are your fitness goals?
I want to lead by example. Women are always motivated by other women and their achievements.I believe a healthy lifestyle is a home to a healthy mind, body and soul. By leading a fit lifestyle you have the power to achieve what you have been dreaming about.
What are your hobbies?
We are an active family and I prefer to exercise at home to set an example for my 2 boys of what a healthy lifestyle is all about. I also love prepping my meals and frequently experiment with a healthy food menu. Apart from exercising I also love swimming and taking a jog in the neighbourhood.
Do you have any sporting/fitness achievements you would like to share?
A week before the last IFBB novice show in Mpumalanga, Witbank I decided to enter to see how I would do.
I had a blast and won the Fitness Bikini up to 1.63m category. I then realised that I am at my happiest competing on stage and started prepping for the South African Championships where I placed 6th. I was on top of the world and received my invitation to next year’s Arnold Classic.
Why did you enter the USN Face of Fitness 2017?
I am entering this competition to chase a dream and to use it as an opportunity to give back to the community. I want to lead by example and teach other women that they have the power to take total control of their own health. I exercise at home with minimum equipment and still manage to live a healthy lifestyle. If you want to be the best you have to beat the best and I believe the USN Face of Fitness is where the best athletes in South Africa are competing.
