Tell us about your fitness lifestyle
I am a strong believer that being plant-based can change your life forever. On a daily basis I post about my diet and workouts to inspire others. I train 4-5 times a week for an hour. My life includes gym, hiking, running and outdoor workouts. I’m a big fan of having fun and exploring other interesting ways to stay active besides the gym. I take plant-based protein to supplement my food.
Why do you think you’re the Biogen Face of Fitness?
My goal in life is to make sure that the fitness industry continues to grow for women in South Africa and that we don’t shy away from embracing a different type of fitness. I believe that I can be part of the change I would like to see. This competition would allow me to share my passion and initiate change in the fitness industry. I believe that I am authentic in my approach and that is something that most women are able to connect with.
