What are your fitness goals?

My fitness journey began at the moment in my life when I hated the way my body looked, which deteriorated my confidence levels to the point of non-existence. I had a very thin and unhealthy looking physic, which made me an easy target for ridicule. It was at this point that I decided to take charge of my health and fitness, and I have never looked back. This afforded me a wonderful opportunity to start loving my body and appreciating what it can do.

My fitness goals have evolved as I started seeing results. My current fitness goals are mostly to build more muscles and gain a higher muscle definition. I strive to continue in my quest of keeping my fitness activities fun, exciting, versatile and challenging while I improve my strength and endurance levels.

I would ultimately also like to achieve more in my netball and running. I also hope to continue to use exercise and looking after myself as a form of therapy to keep my mental state free of stress, anxiety and the general negativity that goes around. I strive to continue to trust the process and all the work I am putting in and continue on this journey to building and maintaining the healthy body that I want even when it gets difficult, and it would be easier to quit.

Given the opportunity, I would be able to help others truly follow their dreams and create better lives for themselves through fitness.

Why do you think you’re the USN Face of Fitness?

I believe I could be the USN Face of Fitness as I personify the values of commitment, determination and perseverance when it comes to my health and fitness, which are some of the important aspects a USN ambassador should possess.

I would also show people that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to fitness, and that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Helping people realize that fitness is not only about exercising, but it includes incorporating a well-balanced nutritional plan, which I believe is demonstrated through the USN products and brand.

As the USN Face of Fitness, I hope to inspire people to start their health and fitness journeys so they can create and live a life (and body) they love. It will be important for me to help others start and continue making better and healthier choices to increase their quality of life.

It is crucial for me to remind people that results do not come overnight that they require hard work, consistency and affording themselves some grace for the things they know they need to work on while they continue working towards achieving them. I will strive to make people realize that health and fitness are not only about looking good, but it includes feeling good and having a healthy state of mind.
