What are your fitness goals?

I started competing this year and quickly realised that the stage physique and protocols cannot be sustained 24/7/365, at least for me as a beginner. I now strive to maintain balance, which entails living a healthy lifestyle, keeping active and still enjoying the odd doughnut(s) or pasta. A balanced fitness lifestyle also rubs off into other areas of your life, like improving your mental health. My fitness goal is therefore to maintain consistent contentment in my own skin. As for the occasions when I do compete, I aim to improve, which will take time and patience.


What fitness achievements should we know about?

2018 IFBB Millennium Gold Plate – 1st Bikini Fitness U/166

2018 Arnold Classics Africa – 5th Bikini Fitness U/160

2018 IFBB Gauteng Central Provincials – 3rd Bikini Fitness U/166

I will represent Gauteng Central at the IFBB SA National Championships on 16 September.


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

I am relatable and USN is one of the most relatable brands worldwide, regardless of sporting discipline. I have been overweight, and transformed. I have taken it to the next stage and competed. The one thing I will always share with my followers is the regular Farai, with no makeup, pronounced muscles. We are all human, after all. At times, for one reason or another, people hold that they cannot keep fit due to “life”. I work full time, I am currently completing a second LLB to be admitted in South Africa. I prep my own meals, and I train… all that is missing is kids. I relate to the worker, the student, and the gym goer. As the USN Face of Fitness, I want to convey the message that “life happens”, but time management, balance and a level of honesty with oneself will always be of paramount importance as the starting point of a fitness journey. Once the journey has begun, it is about enjoying the ride. By representing USN, I want people to know that they can do it!
