Vuyo Dabula's fitness journey

The love of fitness was instilled in me at an early age because my father very athletic and my mother loved jogging and maintaining a good diet. As a young boy, I was also influenced by international action heroes such as Bruce Lee, Jean-Claude van Damme and Sylvester Stallone.

Diet is important. I eat regularly throughout the day but in small portions. I eat foods that are high in protein like beans and darker vegetables. I make sure I burn more calories than I consume.

Wanna become fit Like Vuyo ? Her's How to get started

It’s essential to consider a few things before starting a new workout routine.

1. Check your health

It’s important to consult your healthcare provider and get a physical medical examination before starting an exercise routine. This is particularly important for those new to strenuous and vigorous physical activities.

An early checkup can detect any health problems or conditions that could put you at risk for an injury during exercise. It can also help you optimize your workout, making it easier for you and your personal trainer, if you choose to work with one, to understand your limitations and create an exercise plan tailored to your particular needs.

2. How to stay motivated

The key to staying motivated and making exercise a habit is to have fun while doing it. This helps you to not dread exercising.

Like the sample exercise program shown above, you can mix up activities while keeping it fun for you. If you’re able to and want to, joining a gym or taking a virtual fitness class like yoga or Pilates, hiring a personal trainer, or doing team sports are good ideas to help increase motivation and enjoyment.

Working out as a group or with a friend can also help maintain accountability and motivate you to keep up your exercise routine.
