Let me tell you what was wrong with the picture on the left, & it has nothing to do with my outer appearance.
although yes i am smiling in this picture, i wasn't happy with myself at all. my confidence was very low, & i overall just felt horrible. no wonder why, at this point in my life i spent most of my time with a captain & coke in my hand, going for burger runs at 3am, & thinking doing a few crunches in my living room floor would magically give me abs.
there were some days i would wake up & just lay in bed, i mean all day long until i had to go in for work that evening. i was lazy, sure i wanted to be in shape, i wanted results but i didn't want to work for them. i didn't see the importance & value in taking care of my body. i didn't view a healthy lifestyle as something that was good for me. i viewed it simply as a way to become "skinny"
to the picture on the right: sure, i'm quite a few pounds lighter, i'm starting to develop some definition throughout my body, but that's not even what makes this a transformation.
the true transformation is my mindset, & the lifestyle change i have made to better myself. i wake up every day now thankful i am able to workout. i don't see it as a chore, i view it as a blessing. i don't workout to be "skinny" i workout to grow stronger, to feel good, for energy, for my sanity, & to push myself to become a better version of myself than i was the day before.
and guess what? i still live my life, i still go out with my girls, i still enjoy a burger. it's all about balance & your mindset. this lifestyle change has easily been one of the best decisions of my life.

If you want to change your life, you need to take action. this is something i firmly believe in, and listening to @andyfrisella most recent podcast episode @themfceoproject “f*ck your affirmations” has me wanting to share this message even more. a goal without a plan is only a wish. you can wish for something all you want but unless you are actively working towards it, what’s the point? you have to put in the work to get the results. period. 💪🏼 #transformationtuesday
We are so happy to announce our next 6 week challenge is our 2nd birthday challenge. it is amazing that we, as a brand, are already turning 2 years old. so many members have used the challenges to take back control of their lives and get into the best shape they have been in. others are still on their journey and it is so awesome to see their progress week in and week out.
the 6 week challenge starts on monday 2 july 2018 and will run until 10 august 2018. we are now offering 2 days (r650), 3 days (r950) and 5 days (r1200) a week options and have four time slots to choose from. the time slots include 5am, 8am, 1pm and 5.30pm. if you are not a member of body culture gym, a r600 fee will be due to the gym. this entitles you full access to the gym during the 6 weeks and not only access during your lms sessions.
at the end of each challenge we normally go out to dinner, but this challenge we have decided to throw a birthday bash for our current members and athletes to show our appreciation for their continual support. there are such awesome prizes to be given away and some great sponsors who are coming on board for this challenge. these prizes include hair vouchers, beauty vouchers, photoshoots, supplements and some items from our new clothing range. all to be announced closer to the time.
you are one decision away from the new you. learn how to use weights the right way, meet new people, burn those unwanted calories and refine your nutritional diet.

What’s your dream physique ?✨ #transformationtuesday .
⚠️ if you could transform yourself *right now*(this minute) - what would you want your physique to look like? .
👉🏼ripped? lean? skinny? curvy? muscular definition? .
when i started in jan 2017 my goal was - “i want to be thin” - that’s all. i had no idea what that meant .. i just had an image in my mind of another girl who i thought looked “thin” and i wanted to be like that. .
over the course of my journey, my goals have evolved drastically. and i did this by “visualizing my dream physique”. i now know exactly how i want to look and what kind of fitness lifestyle i want to lead. .
i’d strongly suggest you start “vividly dreaming” or “visualize” how you want to look and perform. and then find out what you need to do to get that physique. .
👏🏼for example if you want to squat 250 pounds on the barbell, your focus is joining a gym or hiring a coach that can help with that. running 5 miles everyday may not be the answer. .
👏🏼if you want to be lean and strong - but not enough to deadlift 300 pounds - then your exercise routine, nutrition, cardio split will all be different. .
this is why bodies of swimmers 🏊♀️ , runners 🏃🏽♀️ , obstacle-course racers, dancers 💃🏼, powerlifters, bikini 👙 models are all different. their fitness goals are closely aligned with what they want to be. .
visualizing your dream body will help you streamline your hardwork, energy and get you better results! .
