21 year old Shadine Nortje has always had a passion for fitness since her high school days. Unlike most athletes, Shadine has not always been in shape but has consistently trained hard to achieve her current physique. Shadine’s biggest transformation has been during the past three years when she made the decision to get to her fitness goal. And now that she is ripped, Shadine has a new goal – to compete for the first time in the International Federation of Bodybuilding South Africa (IFBBSA) Ladies Bikini Fitness category. I met up with Shadine for a Fitness Chat over coffee at Menlyn Maine. Read on to find out what she had to say about her training routine, nutrition and how she is prepping for the competition, 9 weeks out.
