Lives: Centurion, Gauteng
I suffered from an eating disorder when I was younger. The fitness industry and training has helped me overcome that. Training is about more than just looking pretty and looking fit for me. I strive to always be my best self and motivate others to be their best as well, which is why I started studying personal training. I realised my passion in life is within the fitness industry after I noticed all the benefits it had, not only on my physical health and well-being but my mental health and well-being, too. I want to be the motivation and inspiration for others that I needed when I just started my fitness journey.

How does fitness fit into your lifestyle?
Fitness isn’t a phase or a part of my lifestyle anymore. Fitness has become my life. Once you start to love your training and living a balanced life, it becomes part of your daily routine. Honestly, my day feels incomplete if I don’t get my evening session in. During the lockdown, I was so upset that I wasn’t able to train at the gym but I continued doing home workouts to get myself through it. If you have a passion for something or a goal that you are working towards, training will never feel like hard work or something you have to do. It then becomes something you love doing. As the saying goes: “Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.”
What are your personal fitness goals?
To simply be my best and to always do my best. I strive to never walk away from a workout dissatisfied with my performance.
