Women’s Health beauty and style writer, Sinead Martin, sits down with Ayanda Thabethe, the model turned actress turned TV presenter for a chat about reinventions, authenticity, what gets her butt to the gym and just how she keeps her 1.1 million Instagram followers entertained.
First off, how exactly does Ayanda keep motivated to stay on track with her workouts? Because… winter, and all we want to do is curl up under the duvet with a steaming bowl of soup and crusty bread rolls.
Here’s exactly how she does it.
1/Find a workout buddy
Find someone who will take the time out of their day to be at the gym with you. Being held accountable is key.
2/You might not find what you love straight away…
But be patient until you find your thing. Then commit to it.
3/Switch things up
In order to see your body evolve, you need to put it through a range of different workouts.
And now here’s a little more about how Ayanda gives herself love, and a few more things you’ve probably always wanted to know about this gorgeous gal…
4/You, in one sentence
I’m a spiritual being put on this earth to achieve my highest potential and I’m doing it the best way I know how.
5/Dream bio in 20 years
Here’s a woman who has emptied every ounce of her talent.
6/Ultimate self-care tool
A sheet mask (and lucky for you, Ayanda shared her sheet mask secrets with us too!)
7/Exercise for me is…
Another self-care tool. I never thought I’d say that, but no matter what is going on in my day, if I go to gym, I feel good about myself.
