Faith Aviwe Majodina fitness

During her last few years in high school, Faith Aviwe Majodina watched a weightlifting demo and instantly decided that was what she wanted to pursue. And after participating in the sport for about three years, Faith took part in the Western Cape provincials’ competition, where she placed first in the under 63kg division. Later, she was selected to represent the Western Cape in the Junior South African Championships under 63kg and she placed second.

But due to her studying and work commitments Faith had to put weightlifting aside for about 4-5 years. She wasn’t training at all during this period and wasn’t happy with what that did to her body and health.  In this Fitness Chat, Faith Aviwe Majodina shares how she got back on the grind, her training, fitness motivation, and nutrition tips, and plenty more.
