THANK YOU NEW BALANCE SOUTH AFRICA!
12 December 2016
I started my Instagram account @fitnessgirl_za on 1 January 2016. Soon after I was contacted by the Head of Marketing at New Balance South Africa, Katharine Tromp, who pledged on behalf of NB, to kit me out with a full brand spanking new outfit for losing my first 10 kilograms!!
This sounded like an amazing deal, and I was instantly motivated to drop my first 10kgs! It was only at the end of September that I managed to reach this milestone after taking my weight loss journey more seriously in August 2016.
I have always loved the “fit” of New Balance. Most of my training tights are New Balance as the fit seems to be kinder to fuller figured women.
After reaching my ten kilogram milestone and posting about it on @fitnessgirl_za, I was immediately contacted by Katharine who invited me to look at the NB South Africa online shop and pick out a brand new outfit. At first I thought she meant a pair of tights and a tee, but I was quickly informed that I could choose tights, a tee, a bra, a hat, a pair of socks and shoes!! Say whaaaaat? How lucky was I???
I checked the online store and immediately knew I was going to have a hard time deciding. I also really wanted to try on some of the options before sending my list to Kath. I headed down to the NB store at canal walk and was even more confused when I saw how much more spoiled for choice I was. What occurred afterwards was pretty much like that shopping spree scene from any cliché chic flic, hehe!! Yes, I was that girl who literally tried on the whole damn shop.
(SHOUT OUT to the NB store workers who were so patient with me and ultimately helped me make my decisions!)
Eventually I narrowed down my options to the items I was absolutely obsessed with.
A week later my gorgeous apparel arrived! Oh Em Gee, the excitement was uncontainable. I couldn’t wait for the weekend that followed to do a sneaky little shoot with my Instagram husband (Dean) who tirelessly took these shots of me below.
Thank you so much to New Balance South Africa for backing my fitness journey from the start. Even through the ups and the downs this year, you kept your promise. I absolutely LOVE my apparel and have loved looking fashionable even when I’m sweating it out at the gym.
I look forward to working with New Balance South Africa in 2017.
