Tell us more about yourself:
What are your fitness goals?
South Africa was named as one of the most unhealthiest countries this year. So I would like to play my part of transitioning the concept of fitness from a subculture into mainstream lifestyle on a larger scale. Helping others with work-life balance, wellness and fitness, healthy eating and also to focus on all pillars wellness which is mind, body, emotions, spirit and social. A triathlon is also on the cards.
Any sporting / fitness achievements we should know about?
Preventing non-communicable diseases, while also instilling a love of fitness in others. I have managed to increase participation in physical activity through initiatives that offer tangible solutions of the free Fulufhelo Siphuma-Fitness’ masterclasses – with up to 200 attendees.
It’s also a huge milestone working with big sponsors who are coming to join me on the next free fitness masterclass on the 7th of September. I have also raised awareness through traditional media, such as radio talk shows such as the Phalaphala FM weight loss series for a month and also featured on other radio stations such as 702, SAFM spreading the fitness message far and wide. And lastly a personal body transformation. I Gained 13 Kilos of muscle mass.
