Fitness and health shaping my life:
In addition to being a fitness athlete, as a career path I chose to be a certified Professional Health & Fitness Trainer. I live, eat, and breathe the industry day in and day out. For me Fitness is not just a hobby or pastime, it’s a way of life! It’s how I live, it’s who I am, and it’s what I do. When it comes to fitness I believe that we need to hold the vision and trust the process completely. Everything is energy. Your thought begins it, your emotion amplifies it, and your action increases the momentum. It’s all about flipping that switch.
In the dynamic world of fitness I like to be thought of as a credible coach and personal trainer. A professional, knowledgeable and reliable individual who is able to assist others by providing valuable advice and support, assisting them in achieving their training and dietary goals.
Best aspect of being a part of the fitness industry:
Fitness and the associated aesthetics is a growing industry with new elements constantly coming into play, keeping it exciting. Fitness as a whole will never go out of style, anything associated with the industry is sure to have demand in some way or form. It is fast becoming a lifestyle for many as opposed to just an industry. There are trends and fads along the way but for the most part the overall industry is here to stay. The power that lies in what the human body is capable of achieving is definitely a driving factor as to what I believe is one of the best aspects of the industry. The ability to use my knowledge, experience, and passion of something to help enrich somebody else's life and assisting them to realise their full potential through fitness is most certainly a pertinent factor.
Love and passion for fitness:
Growing up in a health conscious family, the desire was always there and the lifestyle was second nature. I have been involved in sports and fitness my entire life. Always having lived a very healthy, active lifestyle for as long as I can remember. I was a South African Schools swimmer right up to the end of my matric year after which I was able to focus on my weight training and goals of building a physique suitable for competing in fitness. I most definitely got bitten by the iron bug and have never looked back since.
Personal inspiration and motivation for training:
They say believing in yourself is the first secret to success. I honestly believe that one’s true inspiration and motivation comes from within. It’s a personal drive inside to be better and beat my personal best. I find the dedication and hard work to be something that fuels the fire within me. It’s about constantly striving to take it to the next level and never stagnating.
