    As an obese individual for 25 years who reached my highest weight of 140 kilos , I decided to embark on a journey that has forever changed my life for the better and until now has not ended, ‘it’s only just beginning’.

    My aim is to motivate, guide and inspire others to change their lives and be the best that they can be. I strive to lead by example, which will be done not only through words but via action and results. ‘Talk is cheap but results are expensive, you have to spend so much time and effort, not only to achieve results but to maintain and reach new heights.

    I believe that the road to success starts with being strong and healthy.

    A love for exercise was put in me from early age starting with dance and calisthenic exercises leading to being a professional track and field athlete and representing my country in sprint and jump events to currently achieving my best in olympic weightlifting.

    Growing up between athletes of various sports have taught me that with hard work and dedication anything is possible.

    A clear goal from you and customised training and nutrition module from me is what will make you succeed.

    I work well with people that are serious about getting results and understand the discipline needed to achieve them.
