About Tendayi Tichiwanhuyi, MSc
Like honesty and kindness; fitness is a value to me. I started working out to look good but my reasons for exercise evolved and continue to change regularly. It’s an ongoing journey of discovery and transformation, not just on the physical body appearance but also in one’s movement capabilities, mental fortitude and emotional well being. Exercise has taught me to be more disciplined, have self-esteem and self-respect to name a few. Just like seasons that come and go, everyday is different and for that I target to win just one day at a time. When I don’t workout, I can feel something is out of place and when I start back up, balance is restored.
In my 7 years of working as a fitness and movement professional, I have observed in myself and others that the will to move to improve health is vulnerable to decline when life gets in the way. Said differently, we include exercise as a way to get in shape, develop a healthy balance, and feel good, but sticking to that habit of exercise is the main hurdle.
