Tell us more about yourself:
What are your fitness goals?
I always want to feel good about myself and am constantly striving to become better and improve my weaknesses. Being a Bikini competitor it is really hard to love your body in the off-season but that is the time you need to dig deep so that you can bring a better package to the stage.
What are your hobbies?
I love the gym and spending time with my loved ones. My family is my rock and I am nothing without them. I am fond of fishing and supporting my family at hot rod races. I am also a regular beach-goer.
Do you have any sporting/fitness achievements you would like to share?
I became an IFBB Bikini athlete this year. My achievements are:
3rd place for Novice Beach Bikini 2017
2nd place for Beach Bikini KZN (I also made the KZN team to compete at the IFBB SA Championships and made it to the top 10.
Why did you enter the USN Face of Fitness 2017?
The reason I entered the competition is to challenge myself into trying something different for a change. I feel this is the perfect platform to spread the positive message of the big impact fitness can have on one’s life. I want to motivate others to see fitness as a joy and not as some sort of punishment. I believe loving your own body is more important than any number on a scale.
