Raised in a small town off the West coast of South Africa, Marcelle’s childhood had a limited world view but a strong emphasis on the value of life, love, friendship and faith. After high school, she was bitten by the travel bug and made plans to travel the world. In her travels, she met new people, tasted new foods and drank the finest cocktails. As she fulfilled her wanderlust, she realized her metabolism began to slow down. Marcelle’s gut reaction was to quickly create an unhealthy relationship with the gym and try out fad dieting.
Through inconsistent results and general unhappiness, Marcelle realized these unhealthy habits weren’t sustainable. This inspired her to pursue a balanced life, full of healthy choices and happiness. She began to eat wholesome food, do workouts she enjoyed and listen to her body when she needed a rest day. Not only did she reach her fitness milestones, but she also discovered a way to live life healthy, fit and happy without giving up food and fun!
