Lives: Western Cape
I have a triple major Bachelor’s of arts degree and I am currently in my 2nd year completing a marketing diploma part time while working full time, while still trying to improve in many aspects of my life. I’m the type of person who refuses to stop; who constantly wants to do more to better myself. The motto I stand for is that “we were not made to be comfortable”. My fitness journey has taught me that you can never become comfortable. I always want more, whether it be trying different things or experiencing new things. We live in a world where there’s more than one way of reaching our goals. But once we’ve found the way that works for us, what happens after that? When we reach that point we always wanted to reach, do we stop? No, I look forward and seek out other opportunities.

How does fitness fit into your lifestyle?
Fitness fits into my lifestyle in many ways. It is a way of getting me time. It gives me that alone time away from all the chaos we face every day, whether it’s from our personal lives or work. It’s become more than just that. It’s structured my lifestyle in a way that betters other aspects of my life, like being disciplined, being respectful to my body, accepting others and being open-minded to the world we living jn and the situations we face. It has become part of my daily routine, which helps me stay in contact with family, work and my studies. It fits in like a glove and has shown me that there’s always a way to make time for you and others.
What are your personal fitness goals?
My personal goals are to have a consistent approach, to get out of my comfort zone, to set a realistic time frame for my goals, to focus more on healthy habits rather than results, to focus on my goals and my journey without comparing my goals and results to others. Most importantly, to be in it for the long run.
