MaryJoan Swart

Age: 42
Lives: Struisbaai Western Cape

I am a wife and mom of two girls aged 5 and 9. I own the fitness group Fit & Tone, a business I started in my room 3 years ago with only one client. I gradually built up to 50 clients and after 1 year I had to move to a bigger venue. Over the last 3 years I have added kids classes that my own kids participate in and were the inspiration for. I added kickboxing and self-defense from the beginning of this year and about 3 months ago, a men’s circuit class. I try to eat healthy when I can and keep an eye on my macros, but I also allow myself to enjoy the occasional treat – I love a good dark chocolate bar! I love the ocean and am fortunate to stay close to it. This is where you will find our family in the summer… on the beach! I am blessed with an amazing support system of family and friends which I value very much!

How does fitness fit into your lifestyle?

Every day! I am so fortunate to wake up and be excited to go to work! Training ladies, helping them reach their goals, seeing how they get fit, toned, strong and confident! I give 12 different types of classes per week. I participate in kickboxing and self-defence classes that one of my trainers teach. I have 2 gym days of my own. Fitness is my life. I love every moment of it!

What are your personal fitness goals?

My fitness goals are to become the best version of myself with an added bonus of feeling strong, healthy and being able to inspire other women, men and children.
