Leaning-on-box About

In my late teens I was a professional ballet dancer. From there, I moved into health and fitness. In the past three decades I’ve designed and written coursework, and lectured for providers in the South African fitness industry. I was also a member of the industry’s standards generating body. In the 90s, I co-founded SA’s first licensing body for fitness trainers. I’ve written for magazines like Men’s Health, Marie-Claire, Cosmo and Shape. (I also served on Shape’s advisory board).

Over the years, I’ve had columns in local newspapers too. In 2004 I wrote two books, published by New Holland. (I just wrote my third.) I’ve worked broadly in the corporate arena and have partnered with various schools. I’m mom to a teen and, once a dancer always a dancer! I took up pole sport years ago so now dance with my feet off the floor:)

I’m 52 and am in good shape. This has led to me being regularly called “fortunate”, “genetically gifted”, or – simply – “lucky”. Some might think my path a charmed one, because I’m not overweight and out of shape as I’ve aged. But it wasn’t always this way for me and I experienced a harsh intro into “Hating self, 101”.

“I’m 52 and love my body – I’ve never been stronger, happier, healthier, or more energetic! I’d love to help you achieve the same”

I’ve worked with Tanya as my ‘Nutrition Coach’ specifically to help me get my energy levels up. As a businesswoman and mom of three, I need all the energy I can get. When Tanya suggested increasing my fat intake, I thought I was either going to be dead in a month, or feel fabulous. Well, the results are just astounding! This is the most energy I’ve ever had, my skin looks great and my hair is a lot thicker. My friends have commented that I’m glowing. For the first time in my life, my hormones have stabilised and I’m feeling absolutely great!

Thank you for the advice you gave me. Meeting you was a blessing because now I feel leaner, stronger and full of energy and never loved living healthy like I do now! My condition is improving and every week I see results. Many people used to recommend a quick fix for getting lean, but that wouldn’t last forever and you opened my eyes to the fact that it’s better to invest in a body that will last long term in a condition that is natural and better looking. Thank you – one day when I’m a world champ, it will be because of you!

Over the past few years I struggled with my weight, which ballooned to 105kg. I decided to join a gym and began working with a trainer. After a busy period at work I needed help with my eating habits so my trainer suggested I see Tanya. On meeting her, I was taken by her positive attitude towards a healthy lifestyle. After a discussion regarding my current diet, Tanya put in place a simple plan to put me back on track. 

Within a short time changes became apparent and have been very dramatic. Not just from a physical standpoint but in my mental attitude too. After a further session with Tanya, I added supplements to my plan and this gave me a new lease on life. At 46, I’m feeling happy within myself. I can’t thank Tanya enough for her simple approach to nutrition and wellness. She helped me change my lifestyle, appreciate and love myself.

Thank you for the great sessions and topics you shared with us – it was a real mind opener. Also, the way you look is so motivating! It’s a true reflection that you know and live what you’re talking about. Your presentations and thorough explanation on how some foods harm/help our bodies was a rude awakening. It was these awakenings that made me think about my health and what I put into my body. I lost weight too!

My husband was my main supporter. He made it easier for me to change because he was so determined. (And I didn’t want to be the fat unhealthy wife while he lost all the weight and looked good!) I learnt some important things. First, the right mindset channels a good attitude. Also, the right knowledge is key. And third, drinking water regularly makes everything all right in the end.
