Please give us a short history of your journey to health and fitness before the challenge.
I always used to struggle with my weight when I stopped playing rugby. I almost always never felt in the mood to hit the gym.
What prompted you to join the Sleekgeek Transformation Challenge?
So nearly 5 years ago I was diagnosed with kidney cancer and because of that I lost a kidney. With the stress of nearly not surviving, I started partying to celebrate the fact that I was still alive, which was just a conn I kept telling myself!
I woke up one day and decided enough now, stop celebrating and start living!
