hello fitness, my old friend

“Creating opportunities, especially for creatives of colour, to start careers, advance, get paid – it’s the best.”GABRIELLE UNION, P.28 (PHOTOGRAPH: CASEY CRAFFORD) Staff Fitness Challenge… Those 12 weeks of winter that the entire WH team loves to hate and hates to love and, well... It’s complicated!We spend hours debating among ourselves as to who is doing what each year – and who had the same genius idea and wants to pair up. I always try to hedge my bets (default setting, unfortunately!). I’ve had wildly successful years where I’ve had a great exercise routine and a sidekick – hey, S.W.E.A.T.1000; hello there, Leigh Champanis-King – and utterly useless years, where I’ve gone it alone, done something super-boring, had no one kicking my ass to get out of bed and…

tell us anything

The Ultimate Motivation WINNING LETTER I learnt about your magazine from my mom in 2014 and I’ve bought every issue since 2015. I used to cut out my favourite workouts and paste them next to my mirror, but that meant I couldn’t take them with me. So, I decided to file them instead and take them with me wherever I go. These workouts have helped me to shed over 10kg and maintain my weight loss. Thank you for keeping me motivated and helping me create new habits that help me maintain my new healthy lifestyle. Nomvelo Mkhwanazi, Tugela Ferry, KZN We Hear You Exercise is known to bring a sense of satisfaction and contentment. Reading Women’s Health magazine not only shows how important…

hello world!

#WHFITFLUENCER WHO: @fit_ophela“Fitness is a journey with no destination. It’s a learning environment,” says fitfluencer Ophela Mhlauli. This is a message she takes very seriously and aims to guide all of her 16K (and counting!) Instagram followers to trust. Ophela’s lifestyle approach to fitness is not about quick fixes or fad diets, instead she advocates that it “is simply choosing to fuel your body with the kinds of foods it needs, while being active in the best way possible.” Ophela works her whole body by keeping it varied – hill sprints, basketball, skipping, resistance bands, weightlifting. “I don’t want to run out of breath when walking up the stairs. I just want to feel and look good in the body that I’m in!” she says. For that reason Ophela…

power up for heart health

Keeping your ticker tip-top isn’t just about cutting down on bad fats; you also need to up good acids. We’re talking aminos – the building blocks of protein – and according to the University of East Anglia in the UK, a diet rich in them can help prevent heart disease. Mix up your protein sources for best results: animal-based foods such as skimmed milk and salmon help reduce arterial stiffness, while broccoli, spinach, pulses and beans can lower blood pressure. Now that’s a hearty diet.…
