#StrongWomen Sarina Frauenstein

From Radio Presenter to devoted strongman’s wife and ballerina, we caught up with Sarina Frauenstein to find out who motivates her to be strong.

Who inspires you to be strong?

My husband, Samuel Frauenstein (@Samuel_Frauenstein), inspires me to be strong. He is a professional strongman and his short career has been filled with injuries. He has had three operations over the past 5 years, but despite all the injuries and negativity, he still has the most positive spirit and he manages to uplift and motivate others. I just look at what he has been through and can’t help but feel strong.

Who do you nominate as a #strongwomen, and why?

My best friend, Velda Smit (@veldasmit). She is almost 50, mother of three, powerlifter and wife to one of SA’s strongest men. In between feeding her monstrous husband, taking care of her kids and running her household, she still works full-time and makes time to train.

“ Strong women wear their pain like stilettos. No matter how much it hurts, all you see is the beauty of it”

“ A really strong woman accepts the war she’s been through and is ennobled by her scars” – Carly Simon
