Tell us more about yourself

What are your personal fitness goals?

While I was initially motivated by aiming to gain weight and strength, my fitness goals have evolved into maintaining the consistent exercise routines I originally adopted and pushing myself to reach new athletic heights. Previously, I weighed only 47kg, and through months of persistence and perseverance, I am nearing my weight goal of 60kg. To me, fitness ultimately means the combination of dietary and physical health with unwavering commitment to improvement, and therefore my overarching goal is to continually grow as an athlete and build the physique of a pro bikini competitor. I believe it’s important to not only take care of my physical health but to also maintain the same approach and energy with my mental health. This mindset keeps me grounded, and thus my foundational goal is to constantly use exercise as a therapeutic tool.

How will you use your #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassadorship to inspire women to lead a healthy / fit lifestyle if you win?

As the 2020 #BiogenFaceOfFitness ambassador, I plan to tap into my personal journey from insecure “tomboy” to ambitious fitness entrepreneur to inspire women of all sizes, races, backgrounds to attain their personal goals through a fit and healthy lifestyle. Growing up labelled as a “tomboy”, I’ve always had a competitive streak to prove myself as equal to my male opponents or friends. This later became awkward and embarrassing in my early teen years, when I wanted to be embraced as a girl; however, my petite, underdeveloped body and my masculine mannerisms interfered. Fast forward to my discovery of dance in my later teen years where I was forced to tap into my feminine self and in some way explore my sexuality through rhythmic dance. For the longest time I was not happy with how I looked and constantly compared myself to other women as the true example of what a real woman looks like. When I become the 2020 #BiogenFaceOfFitness, I will use the opportunity to empower women across South Africa. I intend to create #ConFiDance workshops for young women to encourage them to be comfortable in their own skin, using fitness and dance as the educational tool. Beauty and health come in every shape, form and gender and should not be subjected to a prescribed aesthetic. I will inspire women to love themselves, whether their goal is to lose or gain weight, to build muscle or to simply maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What health and fitness quote or mantra do you live by?

“Great things never come from comfort zones.” This quote embodies my approach to my health and fitness approach because it reminds me that the key to success is challenging, discomfort and anguish. It is only when we are out of our comfort zones that we can truly push ourselves and reach our potential greatness.

Tell us about your fitness lifestyle

My fitness lifestyle is well rounded. I have been finding ways to train at home with the use of body-weight training and Makeshift Gym Equipment. I train Monday to Friday.

I compartmentalize my muscle groups for strength training (upper body and lower body) so that I do not overwork my muscles. I try to get a good amount of cardio and stretching in the week as well through jogging, HIIT workouts, hiking, yoga and Pilates. On weekends, I rest but still maintain a well-balanced diet. My diet consists of high -protein meals with a moderate amount of starches and greens. I still do have a few cheat meals during my weekends (e.g. Friday Cheat Meal Breakfast) as I do not believe in stressful diets that are hard to maintain. As I have progressed in my journey, I have learned which foods to avoid eating, and which foods to increase in terms of intake.

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

I am the 2020 Biogen Face of Fitness because I embody the qualities that Fitness Mag represents in terms of possessing physical and mental health, and coupling it with the ability to motivate and inspire a diverse representation of South African women. To me, the Face of Fitness must be able to connect with others in a relatable way, and ultimately challenge people to pursue their body transformation goals through proper health and fitness practices. I have incorporated many successful techniques into my lifestyle that led to my own dynamic transformation, and thus, I feel that I would be the ideal ambassador and 2020 Biogen Face of Fitness to encourage others to achieve their own goals.

  • Sherry on August 22, 2020

    Tremaine would be a #BiogenFaceOfFitness I would be super proud of. So many people struggle to lose weight but not many speak about the challenges of gaining weight, which I think can sometimes be even more difficult. Her transformation is amazing, I know several woman who’ve given up on gaining weight but I know Tremaine can reach and inspire those women. If more people knew how fierce and determined this hun actually is, you’d be just as happy to have her as the Face of Fitness too ???

  • JANE on August 24, 2020

    I am in awe of this woman’s resilience and unwavering determination. I knew her petite self and looking at her now, I am convinced that it is possible for one to undergo such a noticeable transformation all through exercise and a good diet. I am proud of you babe and I know you will make a huge impact, all the best baby.

    I have known Tremaine when she was still a young girl through her mom who was my colleague. She was always a bubbly child. After some few years i started to see her on her mother’s status, looking beautiful, healthy and fit. You can see the results of her exercises. Her body is toned and looking amazing.
