Goodlife Fitness

I discovered my love for running over 14 years ago -the challenge it brings, the freedom and clarity you feel and the confidence you gain, are a few of the many reasons why I love to run. Over the past decade I have participated in numerous 5 & 10 km running events, 10 half marathons and a 30 km race. I have a passion for fitness and mental well-being and truly believe that maintaining an active lifestyle is the best medicine you can give to yourself.

I also support a cause that is close to my heart - DIFD (Do it For Daron). My goal is to run to create awareness of mental health issues and erase the stigma that is attached to these diseases.

Along with my passion for running, I also have a passion for Group Exercise and after a few sweaty auditions and trainings have become a certified Les Mills Body Pump Instructor and CXWORX Instructor for GoodLife Fitness. I love to inspire and motivate others to achieve their goals. I believe anything is attainable as long as your mind is committed to it. "It is never that one can't - it's that they won't."
