"If it doesn't challenge you,
it won't change you"

I grew up in a very athletic & competitive household. My aunt being a Springbok hurdler and my mother an athlete all her life, but when her motivation for athletics faded, she started training as a bodybuilder. To her disappointment I was never athletic, all due to my weight. I participated in as many sports as I could, but was always the "last one to be picked". After school I started climbing the corporate ladder. I got my diploma in business management and was stuck in the 9-5 rat race. Living a fit and healthy lifestyle was not on my to do list. After making many mistakes in life & love, my daughter and I finally moved in with a room mate, she lived her life and I mine. For the first time it felt like my life was mine. The first few months I partied like I was a teenager again. But I wasn't happy.....with me. One afternoon after work I put on a pair of tekkies and hit the road. Needless to say I could only manage a 100m jog, it was my first but not my last. With my next salary I bought cheap weights, better running shoes and started training. Every evening after work I would dedicate an hour to training, some nights I would run, some nights weight training in my bedroom (which was only big enough for a single bed). I became obsessed, but loved every moment. I took hold of my life, living a fit & healthy lifestyle was now my priority. The bonus was I was losing weight, little bit at a time, but eventually 20kg was in my past. During this time I met my current husband. Hearing how he changed his lifestyle, losing 45kg in 6 months. He left the corporate world to become a personal trainer to motivate others to do the same. I immediately knew this is what I was meant to do, motivate & help people to change their lives. I qualified as a personal trainer and welcomed this new endeavor with open arms. My clients all have different goals and every morning I wake up exited to help them take on every challenge. Many years ago I could only manage a 100m jog, I have progressed to a half marathon a month. What are your challenges? Let me help you achieve them
