Sherneal Joseph

Age: 23
Lives: Johannesburg 

I am a 23 year old Personal Trainer and Nutritionist based in Johannesburg South Africa. If I were to describe myself it would be as a go-getter, a women empowerment leader, a passion and purpose driven individual and simply someone with a gift from God and the passion for health and fitness that He planted in my heart.

My journey into the health and fitness space started in 2017. I was at the lowest point in my life and I longed for an escape, a safe place and something that would rejuvenate me from the inside out, and the gym provided me with just that and more. Just like any other, I started from scratch – scared, intimidated and confused, with little to no knowledge and lost in the chaos, myths and misconceptions that saturate the health & fitness industry. 

But fast forward almost 5 years down the line and a triple major in Politics and Governance, Industrial Sociology and Spanish later and here I am a Personal Trainer and Nutritionist. This unexpected carrier choice wasn’t really readily accepted by those closest to me, but, my faith and trust in God and the passion that He placed in my heart is the reason I am who I am and where I am today. Despite the doubt, the rejection and the failures that I have encountered along the way I have always come out stronger and every mess has had a message. My purpose is to use my career to be the light that shines in darkness for other people and help impact their lives for the better. I know what a commitment to health and fitness has done for me and how multi-faceted its benefits are, so coming from a place of personal experience I am confident in how I can make my passion my purpose and positively impact the lives of others. 

How does fitness fit into your lifestyle?

Fitness is my lifestyle, it doesn’t have to fit in because everything I am and everything I do extends from my commitment to fitness. Fitness is my passion and my career, my gift and my calling from God and the way that I am able to play my part and positively impact the lives of others, it is my escape and my safe place, my hobby, my mental and physical health and my strength and confidence. Fitness is engrained in my identity as an individual. 

What are your personal fitness goals?

My personal fitness goals are to become stronger, happier, healthier and more confident than the person I was yesterday. Every opportunity I get to work out and nourish my body mindfully is another step towards me becoming better than the person I was yesterday and flourishing from the inside out.
