Tell us more about yourself:
What are your fitness goals?
I always wanted to compete in Bikini competitions, but recently I’ve shifted my focus to ‘balance’. I would like to remain fit and healthy throughout the year rather than having a specific prep season. My current goal is to maintain a physique that allows me to be competitive or ready for a photo-shoot in the minimum time while still inspiring others to get fit, strong and healthy.
What are your hobbies?
Cooking, especially healthier versions of family favourites. I also stay active in our home gym by doing a combination of suspension and weight training. Another passion of mine is writing and I have been lucky enough to have articles published in Muscle Evolution as well as CMag. I am senior administrator on a health and fitness group known as IronTribe.co on Facebook with almost 15000 members. I love sharing my knowledge and assisting those who would like to lead a healthier lifestyle. Recently I have also been involved in assisting (planning and running) the Fitness Runway Model South Africa.
Do you have any sporting/fitness achievements you would like to share?
I have placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd in three individual IFBB shows between 2014 and 2016. I competed in the Beach Bikini division. I have also made top 10 for the Trojan Ambassador search known as ‘The Perfect Fit Search’ in 2014. I competed in various shows, including WBFF SA and Body Beautiful. Hopefully, I can also be the next USN Face of Fitness winner!
Why did you enter the USN Face of Fitness 2016?
I’m entering again after a few years because I believe I now know what it takes to be associated with a brand. Not just any brand, one of the largest and most influential brands in South Africa – USN. I want to be a representative for Ultimate Sports Nutrition as they represent the embodiment of a healthy lifestyle. It reflects the foundational values of USN when it was originally founded. I am constantly encouraging people to use supplements because I believe the benefits extend beyond athletes and sports professionals. USN is one brand that caters for an immense number of people and I promote supplement use by writing articles for publication, sharing supplement recommendations and interacting with clients and potential clients. As a qualified Advanced Sport and Exercise Nutritional Advisor, I am able to share my knowledge and assist individuals to reach their respective goals. I live a healthy and balanced lifestyle. I use supplementation in order to achieve my goals, whether it’s a bikini competition, photo-shoot or just looking the part year-round to inspire others. For those reasons, I believe, I would make a notable addition to the USN team.
