Lives: Mamelodi East, Pretoria
My fitness journey began in my teenage years when I wanted to lose weight. I later realised that I didn’t want to be skinny and that’s when my new lifestyle began. I went on to study fitness and personal training and learnt that fitness is not about how you look physically but how you are emotionally, spiritually, and mentally. When all those elements are aligned, you are actually living a healthy lifestyle. My motto is “when motivation dies, let discipline take its place.” I am willing to learn as much as I can… the goal is to get a specialisation in functional fitness group exercise. I also want to help women realise that fitness is a lifestyle and not a seasonal trend. Also, you should do it because you love it. It’s more about the journey than the destination.

How does fitness fit into your lifestyle?
When everything seems out of place, fitness keeps me sane. When I need to re-adjust, fitness helps me get back on track. Fitness is part of my life and has helped me overcome a lot in my life. I want to continue growing in the fitness industry and also be able to help someone else get to their goals.
What are your personal fitness goals?
To obtain overall fitness, grow in the fitness industry and to also compete on the big stages one day.
