Top 6 announced in this year’s Biogen Face of Fitness

Competition judges from Biogen and Fitness magazine had a tough task selecting the top 6 in the 2021 Biogen Face of Fitness cover model search competition. 

According to Fitness magazine publisher, Tanja Schmitz every lady in the top 12 was worthy of a spot at the final shoot

“We based our final decision on multiple factors, including each finalist’s ability to share interesting content via their social media channels and engage with their online community in genuine and meaningful ways,” explains Tanja. 

The judges also wanted to select a group of inspirational ladies who embody Biogen’s brand values – constantly striving to #BEYOURBEST by living fit and healthy every day. 

“We believe that we’ve selected a diverse group of individuals who represent South Africa’s different cultures and the contrasting approaches we can take when following a healthy, fitness-focused lifestyle,” adds Tanja.

And the top 6 are…

After extensive deliberations, Fitness magazine and Biogen are pleased to reveal this year’s top 6:

  1. Micheline Marmol
  2. Tremaine McMaster
  3. Sherneal Joseph
  4. Bianca Tiffany Marais
  5. Rirhandzu Sambo
