Belinda Van Schalkwyk

My name is Belinda van Schalkwyk.

 

I am 21 years old, born in Cape Town, South Africa and I’ve spent most of my life in Melbourne, Australia. I started training at the age of 17 to build up some muscle, as I was quite underweight and had gone through years of malnutrition. From there, I fell in love with the health and fitness industry and couldn’t see myself in any other career.

I have completed a certification in Performance Nutrition Coaching, and am currently completing my Cert III and IV in Fitness to become a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. I have also had the privilege of being able to work alongside Sarah at Fithealth Nutrition and learn about supplements and health products.

I’m currently a Barbell Recomp Athlete, prepping for my first competition season in March 2018. I strongly believe that with any goals we set our minds to, it is important to work hard and put in 100% determination, diligence and effort. But even more importantly, the journey needs to be a process that we can enjoy along the way too. I’m lucky enough to have 10 years of cooking experience, so I prep all my own food and love to experiment with different flavours and cousines.

I also make my own pre-workout using Fithealth’s products to fuel my body effectively and assist me in recovery after my training sessions.

“Thanks to Sarah at Fithealth Nutrition for her ongoing support since I first walked into the store as a customer years ago, and for keeping me on track with more than just my training, but my mentality and life goals too.”
