If it doesn't challenge you
it won't change you
I started training when I was 7 years old in school. At the time I did sprints, long-jump and basketball. It was always bodyweight exercises.
Sprinting meant competing.
Competing meant winning.
Winning required discipline.
Discipline resulted in not having time for what normal kids in a township had enough time to do. I was always training.
Because I grew up training and loving it, I grew into the weightlifting lifestyle and never looked back. It ended up becoming my passion, not just my lifestyle.
When I was down, weight lifting picked me up. When I was happy, weightlifting accelerated my positive mood.
Because of my weightlifting my long-jumps and high-jumps improved, in fact my entire fitness level improved. My muscles began to grow and I was no longer the skinny kid people used to know. It started attracting my homeboys who wanted to know how it's done.
When I added boxing into the mix. I was a fit and strong looking young man. This all got me interested in eating healthy as well. The more I improved, the more I learnt that health and fitness go hand in hand.
Since I looked the part, a friend suggested I consider being a personal trainer. I looked into it, and immediately got into it. I looked and in a very short space of time I was hired as a fitness instructor at Virgin Active. The sky was the limit, soon after that I was a personal trainer still at Virgin Active.
Working with people in helping them achieve their fitness goals and realizing their strengths is my utmost motivation and passion.
