Charne’ Gerber

Age: 21
Lives: Springs 

I come from a small town. I did not have a lot growing up and I have not had the best of childhoods. But that has kind of been my motivation to be the best I can be, to live a better life and to put good energy into the world. Sometimes it’s hard for a 21-year-old to be taken seriously, but I like proving people wrong when they doubt me. I know what I want and I will work my hands off to get it. I am a very caring, loving, honest person with goals and who always tries giving a 1000% in everything I do.

How does fitness fit into your lifestyle?

Fitness has always been part of my lifestyle. My grandfather used to run the Comrades Marathons and my parents were also into fitness when they were younger. In school I played hockey and started going to the gym at the age of 17. It’s a lifestyle I never want to give up. Fitness is not just about your physical appearance, but how you feel mentally. This lifestyle is literally the feeling it gives me in the first word – “life”. 

What are your personal fitness goals?

Being physically healthy as well as mentally. Fitness is not just about your physical aspects, it is just as important to be mentally healthy and “fit”. Being someone that has depression, I have realised that once you put yourself in that negative mindset, it’s hard to snap out of it. That’s when you suddenly don’t feel worthy or good enough, and you close yourself off and don’t want to do anything for yourself. This competition has given me the chance to break that habit and hopefully inspire those also going through the same things. Anything is possible if you just get out of your comfort zone and believe.
