What are your fitness goals?

  • With my own fitness journey lots of girls have asked for my advice, in the near future I would love to study for a personal trainer so that I have the proper knowledge to guide & help them reach their own individual goals.
  • Hoping to do well at my very first fitness show on the 24th of August.
  • I’ve been invited to compete at the Swimsuit USA International World Finals in November, this would be an absolute dream come true to compete on an international stage.
  • To do well in this competition of course, even if I inspire only one girl through my journey that would be a job well done for me.

Any sporting / fitness achievements we should know about?

I’ve always been on crash diets to lose weight ,as soon as I looked at pizza I would pick it back up again. This year I decided it was time for a change. I started doing weight training, eating the right food & of course using amazing products from USN. Four months later, 6 kg lighter & I feel much happier, healthier & stronger …oh & I’m even eating that pizza now & the weight stays off !!

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

I love encouraging woman to feel good about themselves, whether it’s doing their hair, make-up, providing them with beautiful outfits or just giving a word of advice. I love motivating others to be the best version of themselves. I love everything about healthy living and that’s exactly what USN brand is all about. It would be an absolute honour & privilege to be associated with a brand that would be so easy to promote full heartedly and with a positive attitude.
