MBABANE – A journey that started four years ago has stood against the test of time as Bonsile Simelane dedicates herself to daily individual training even during the closure of gyms.

She is not a sports person but fell in love with physical exercise for health benefits and to stay in shape.
Since she started consistent training, she has never reported sick even from a minor flu.
This is testament to the fact that exercise promotes health and fitness, this should be a cultural practice for every human being.
Like most fitness fanatics, the emergence of COVID-19 disrupted Simelane’s training routine but never eroded her passion and dedication for fitness.


The change of residence from Ezulwini to Siteki meant parting ways with her training partners. However, that did not stop her from pushing her limits in her new place of abode.
“I was drawn into the fitness world by a friend and fitness coach, Mbuso Hlophe. He introduced me to aerobics and the skipping rope which are my best friends. My body is much stronger, toned and full of energy,” said Simelane.

She disclosed that basic hygiene incorporated health and safety in her household but after being educated on the spread of COVID-19 and its dangers, she goes the extra mile in ensuring that her family is safe from the life threatening virus.

“In respect of the government’s orders and the advice from health experts, I maintain social distancing by exercising alone in the garage and minimising contact with other people.

“I miss the engagement with my training partners and I pray that this virus could vanish so that we can carry on with life as we know it,” said Simelane.
She advised members of the public to be cautious of their food options especially during the partial lockdown period where people spend a lot of time at home and are tempted to eat unhealthy treats that may lead to overweight and obesity.

“Fitness starts in the kitchen and that is where you need to discipline yourself and avoid food that will derail your fitness goals.
A lot of athletes gained weight during the lockdown so now is the time to amend your ways and pursue your goals,” she said in conclusion.
