My story

I started my health and fitness education at Eastern University, PA, USA in 2008, majoring in a Bachelor of Science of Biokinetics and Dance.

After a year, I moved back to Durban, South Africa and completed a diploma in Sport Management, and a certificate in Coaching and Conditioning at Varsity College, Westville in 2010.

I then went on to complete my Bachelor of Sport Science at UKZN, Westville, going on to complete my Honours in Biokinetics in 2016.

I realized my passion shortly after I finished studying. A mid-twenties crisis of uncertainty as to what my life’s purpose was is what projected me into finding my destiny – helping the everyday, perfectly imperfect, wonder woman dealing with the daily struggles of binge eating, weight-loss woes, and general feelings of self-consciousness and worthlessness, to find acceptance in a world of superficial perfection.

Every young woman, including myself, deals with the day-to-day difficulty of finding acceptance and belonging in a world that demands unattainable perfection in every area of life.

My purpose is to guide these women by changing their perception of how they view themselves in the world, and foster sustainable feel-good exercise habits in combination with healthy food education – encouraging the uniquely you to live a well-balanced, healthy life.

The Motivation

Unjaded Fitness seeks to inspire worldwide wonder women of all shapes and sizes to feel more secure in their bodies by learning to foster a healthy lifestyle and mindset through the multiple benefits of physical fitness. Not only will you experience fat loss and muscle toning, but you will also encounter improved sleeping patterns, increased strength, diminished stress levels, reduced fatigue, and an overall fitness level to allow you to cope with just about any sport or exercise you tackle!

I want ya to “TONE”! What happens if you don’t hit your required calorie intake for the day? What effect would this have on your body if you were under by quite a bit?

Its now well-known (and if you didn’t know, now you know) that various aesthetic goals depend on calories in vs calories out. A lot of women in particular think their overall goal is always weight-loss with a side of “I want to tone my booty, shoulders and have a flat tummy”.
The thing is, these are all completely different goals that require various calorie content and macro content.

Here’s an answer in short. Being in a calorie DEFICIT of around 500 calories is aiming towards weight-loss. If that’s your goal, then this will work for you (if you can manage it in combination with a good program and good foods - even better!). If your overall goal is “toning”, it requires a calorie SURPLUS because toning requires muscle growth. Muscle is metabolically active and needs ENERGY in order to GROW into the desired shape. You cannot expect to necessarily grow a gorgeous peach, or shape your arms if you’re not willing to EAT MORE food.

So here’s what’ll happen if you’re not eating enough throughout the day to support your training to reach your goals (I’ve done this before, it ain’t fun!):
• An inability to build muscle/tone (you need to be in a calorie surplus in order to actually build muscle for what we call

EAT FOOD. QUIT STARVING YOURSELF. YOUR BODY CAN HANDLE IT. YOU WILL LOOK & FEEL BETTER.
Holy Toledo! What an incredibly beautiful, sneaky little city!

1. Eat a full lunch menu at Restaurante Palacios - it’s pretty cheap! For about €8 you get a sizey starter, main, dessert and a drink, and the food is seriously good!
2. Check out the Cathedral of Toledo - it’s got the largest bell in Spain (it weighs the same as 4 elephants), and it’s the second richest cathedral in the world, second to St Peter’s Basilica in Rome. It’s also got 3 interesting doors: the door of forgiveness, the door of judgment and the door of hell.
3. Check out a sword manufacturer, watch the whole process and learn about the history of swords and how they have evolved. This isn’t such a girly thing to do, but it’s super interesting AND Toledo is known for having created the swords included in Gladiator, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones
4. Stop for a cider/beer/glass of wine/whatever your flavor on the cobble stone streets. It is picturesque EVERYWHERE!
5. Make sure you take a drive to the panoramic viewpoint to see the whole of Toledo town at sunset - the sun is PERFECT at golden hour and the city look just like that, a city of gold with a breathtaking view!
6. Try some marzipan - legend has it this is where marzipan was invented (but could be up for debate)
7. Toledo officially has the smallest window in the world (who measured, in not sure!). It’s just breathtaking lily beautiful walking along these medieval streets, and it’s a must see if you ever get the chance to pop into Madrid!
