Tell us more about yourself:
What are your fitness goals?
My fitness goal at the beginning of the year was to look and feel good about the body I have.
Every day, eight months ago I made a choice – the choice to wake up for gym at 4 AM – and the choice to stick to my diet.
Even after seeing the results, I don’t want to quit. Every day I make the choice to eat according to what my body needs. I don’t try to be perfect, some days are harder than others. And for other days, it feels like a breeze.
My fitness goal is always to do better, and be better than the day before – with that, I look and feel good and can transfer that energy to people I meet during the course of the day.
What are your hobbies?
I love training.I do weight lifting 4 times a week and do some cardio 5 times week for an hour.
On Sundays, I prefer to go for a swim to keep toned and enjoy some water exercise.
Do you have any sporting/fitness achievements you would like to share?
None yet but in 3 weeks from now, I will be competing at the OR Tambo Classic in East London in the Fitness Bikini division. I will also be competing in Ruimsig in November.
Why did you enter the USN Face of Fitness 2017?
I entered this competition because I believe my attitude, demeanour and passion towards fitness will resonate and bounce off of others.
Fitness is a journey, it’s not a destination – and entering this competition will allow me to catapult this notion off onto others.
I not only want to inspire young women but keep inspiring those ladies who have done this for years such as Jenadine Havenga and Laura Danielz. Their stories are inspiring.
I’d love to show South Africa, let alone the world that fitness can become a discipline once you start – the core principles of it, i.e.: mental strength, physical strength, discipline, perseverance and true hard work are the recipes to every other thing they commit themselves to in life. If one believes in oneself, there’s nothing anyone else can do to take that away from them – and I believe in myself.
My personality and fitness goals fit the description of USN’s Face of Fitness – healthy, upbeat and easily marketable.
