I’m super excited to welcome a whole team of Sleekgeek moderators, called the “Mod Squad”, to help Elan and I (Eric) run the Sleekgeek community!
At the time of this appointment there are almost 75,000 members in the main Sleekgeek Health Revolution Facebook Group as well as another 230,000+ members throughout the numerous other more niche Sleekgeek Facebook Groups.
Reaching out for some help has been long overdue and we are super excited to give more leadership over to the Sleekgeek community itself.
We posted in the group asking if people thought that having a team of moderators would be helpful to the community and there was a unanimous agreement that it would be valuable. We then engaged the community on the qualities they thought we should be looking for.
As part of the Sleekgeek Mod Squad, these chosen Sleekgeeks will be playing critical roles far beyond just being moderators who help us keep things under control.
They will be community managers, leaders, mediators, welcomers, analysts, problem solvers, idea generators, content creators, and of course, true Sleekgeek Inspirers as well as so much more.
The team is there to make sure that Sleekgeek is always an Awesome place to be and that our Code of Respect, Uplift, Inspire is upheld at all times. Sleekgeek is a safe place to freely share your journey without judgement and we intend to keep it that way.
If you frequent the Sleekgeek Health Revolution Facebook Group then I’m sure that you will recognise many, if not all, of the faces below. However, keep in mind that being a part of the Sleekgeek Mod Squad is not a popularity contest. More than anything, they were chosen for their long-standing history with Sleekgeek as well as their temperaments, reliability, and availability.

Hi I’m Buhle Bontle Buhle Mtshali otherwise known as Bonts. KZN feisty fearless and fabulous leader. If I’m not doing some fitness shenanigans you will find me kicking some ass in the boardroom or at home goofing around with my number one cheerleader aka my loving daughter. My +2year journey with Sleekgeek has been mostly finding my balance between Gym, Work and Home. Doing the best I can to keep fit and strong and inspire other Sleeks. Many single mothers always ask me how I get it all done. My moto is 1. You will never have enough time if you don’t make the time. 2. If the going gets tough… Dala what you must.

Hi, I’m Les. I’m married to the gorgeous Sonet, and I have 2 great step kids. Health wise my journey is more of a social wellness than anything else. SG has certainly helped me in this. I like to say “How hard can it be?”. This normally happens just before we get told to do burpees near a lava pit…
