QUOTE you Live By: Keep your heart big,Your soul bright and your ass tight….”

Tell us One special thing about the place where you are From? Middelburg is kind of a small town vibe.I sometimes feel like a celebrity here…lol.Everyone knows me and supports me especially if I competed over the weekend.I cant just do a quick trip to Spar because everyone I see will want to ask about my competition and congratulate me. The people are still real and humble and down to earth..haha.I love living here mostly because I know the environment and the people which is good for my children.

So how did you get into Modelling? When did it all begin for you? Well I dont really think of myself as a model lol but it all started in 2016 when I made top 6 of the USN Face of Fitness. I also then started competing more seriously in the IFBB as a fitness bikini athlete and I guess thats why I got all the exposure and all of a sudden everyone started taking notice.
What was the last song you heard? I feel it coming…The Weekend
So you an online trainer. Tell us more about what do you do? Well I feel Im a bit different than other online trainers.My approach is very different in a sense that I try to work with my clients from the inside out. I believe that whatever we try to accomplish in life(physically or mentally) starts with a thought or idea.Everyone wants to lose weight and look good and for some its easier than others. I’m more than just a online or personal trainer,IM A LIFE COACH ALSO. I love working with women and helping them look beyond their insecurities and making them see who and what they can be.When I get them to start believing in themselves they find the weight loss process easier.

Is there a huge market for online trainers these days? Yes there is.Its become a trend these days.Online coaches and trainers are everywhere. Everyone wants to lose weight. I think people are becoming more aware of the benefits a healthy lifestyle offer. Many also want to make that change and require guidance
You are also a fitness Athlete. Is it tough to pepare for competitions and Events? Ive been competing since 2014.For me its part of my life now. Its my Thing lol. Its either that or scrapbooking haha. Its hard when you start at first I guess. To change your habits and lifestyle is difficult. Ive been doing it for so long now I miss competing when my competitions are too far apart. I love my healthy lifestyle and I love training hard and seeing how my body changes and grows
How do you prepare for these events? Tell us from training to Diet? Well Im in great physical condition all year round. I do have a off season during December till around March. My body fat will probably go up to around 15% or higher. I usually take about 10 weeks to really prep seriously for a competition. During off season I will maintain my training and use it to build muscle and be less strict when it comes to my diet. I usually follow a balanced diet by eating clean for 10 weeks then gradually make my portions smaller to lose the fat. I try to get my body fat under 10% when Im on stage. I use USN Fatburners als to help me and up my cardio for about 6 weeks

Is being a model what its made out to be? Its harder,More physical work than you think.Sometimes you have to hold a pose or position for a few minutes and thats awkward or uncomfortable.You feel your muscles cramping and you try to hold a smile or look all sexy and sultry but in the meanwhile you are in pain :)hahaha.I did a beach shoot once and the sand was so course.I had bruised knees for 3 days after from all the posing on my knees in the shallow water and not to mention the ice cold water at 4am,coz it was a sunrise shoot lol.Once we  we did a outdoor shoot in Wellington in November. It was a very hot,38 degrees to be honest. Walking around barefoot and getting sunburned was a part of it. The shoot venue was around old buildings with broken glass and cans and pieces of metal and very dangerous stuff was lying around. I tell you….hahaha…
BUT nevertheless….Its ALWAYS fun and exciting to model and do shoots. Im always grateful to do it and meet new people
