Tell us more about yourself

What are your personal fitness goals?

I would like to increase my mobility and flexibility. I remember the days as a child when I was able to move into any position without feeling like my hamstrings were close to tearing. This will improve my dancing as well. I would also like to take on a new sport with my newly found strength – I haven’t played sports since high school.

 

How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?

Before I started training I was weak and insecure about my body after having a baby. Exercising was super hard and eating healthy felt like a punishment. While most women cannot pass this stage, I persevered and experienced a mind shift. I now enjoy exercise – it clears my mind and stimulates my creativity. The best part was getting stronger, which absolutely fulfills me. If I win, it will offer a bigger platform to share my story, with the hope of reaching other women and changing their minds and attitude towards fitness. I want to tell them that if I can do it, they can do it too. I also want to encourage them to never stop because the best part is yet to come.

 

What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?

“Fitness isn’t a short-term approach but a long-term commitment so make it affordable, sustainable and enjoyable.”

 

Tell us about your fitness lifestyle

I’m a fit girl on a budget. I basically work with the food I have access to and can afford, which I tailor to meet my needs and preferences. I have never joined a gym before so I am big on home workouts. I train 4 times a week and run at least twice a week. The other form of cardio I like is dancing!

 

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

My energy is contagious, which helps me drive my message across, which is: I’ve been there and I know how incapable one can feel. But if a Tsonga girl from Bushbuckridge village found the strength to get out, you can too!
