How did you get started?
I have always been into sports. I was a sprinter in higher school so the motivation to be active was always there. I love going to the gym, the adrenalin rush is great. Endorphins can never been too much. Best fix to a bad day.
Where does your motivation come from?
Although I have been in sports, I have always struggled with weight issues. I have an endomorph body type so keeping the weight in control is very hard. Even very little binging can cause a big shift. I had lost about 20kg’s about 2 years back but then I had an accident and I tore my ACL. I had to have a surgery and my weight went back up 20 kg’s to where I had started. It was very difficult and that became a serious motivation to keep the fat/weight off for good.
How do you feel your flexibility helps you both in and out of the gym?
Given that, I had a surgery and an injury, flexibility is extremely important to me so that I can keep myself away from injuries as much as possible. It also helps with stiffness post workout.
What workout routine has worked best for you?
Weight training combined with cardio.
If you had to pick only 3 exercises what would they be and why?
My most favourite one’s are always compound movements –
1. Squats (ass to grass)
What is your diet like?
Trying to make a change in the body type means making a lifestyle changes. Keto is the only lifestyle change that has made everything work and it is the best every change any one can make.
What’s the one food you couldn’t live without, and how do you handle food cravings?
Thank fully, I do not have a major sweet tooth but keto is a great way to keep your taste buds happy. I often make keto tiramisu if I feel like something sweet on any given day.
What’s something not many people know about you?
My results may look great (now) but I have struggled a lot to get where I have gotten that too after a surgery. It takes massive effort but when you see the results it’s every bit worth it. I never judged my progress on the weighing scale and I never ever compared it to anyone else’s progress. Just kept on working and getting inspired by other’s who put in the effort.

I will always be in SHAPE, because my SHAPE does not run behind a SIZE, instead it follows FITNESS!
