What are your personal fitness goals?
I started duathlons last year and was selected for SA Champs, but due to COVID the season was cancelled. My goal for next year is to race SA Champs and go to Nationals and World Champs.
How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?
Supporting women of all shapes and sizes is my goal! Anyone can change their lives for the better when it comes to fitness. Fitness should be fun and accessible to everyone, even those who cannot afford the gym or a CrossFit class. I want to inspire these ladies to take up running and do at-home workouts to get SA women fit the fun fit mom way!
What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?
Staying fit is the goal, having fun is the aim.
Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
I train 6 days a week. I cycle in the morning, and in the afternoons run for 45-60 minutes, followed by a 20-minute strength-based home workout. On weekends I do my longer training, with a Saturday long run and a Sunday long ride. As a mother, going to the gym is not always possible but I always make time to do my training, even if it has to be at home.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
I think I have a lot of ‘growing’ and improving to do and what better way than to do it with such an amazing brand. I am already fit and look great but being backed by a brand such as Biogen will push me even harder to look and perform better.
