WHO IS FITNESSGIRL?
Hello! My name is Tracey-Lee Lusty, and I am the lady behind the brand FITNESSGIRL!
I am a born and bred Capetonian living and working in the most beautiful city in the world. When I was young I always had my heart set on being a lawyer. Fast forward 27 years and that’s exactly what I am doing with my life.
I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Law and Media & Writing. I then went on to graduate again in 2014 with my Bachelor of Laws degree. I completed my Articles at a top Family Law firm in Cape Town from January 2015 to March 2017, whereafter I was admitted as an attorney of the High Court. I am currently practicing as a Family law litigator in Cape Town.
Besides my fast-paced and often emotionally taxing career, I have a positive obsession with health and fitness. I really do believe that we should all strive for balance in everything we do. Balancing health and fitness with my demanding career can sometimes take its toll. But at the end of the day, looking after my body has become second nature and something I do daily like brushing my teeth.
After gaining more than 50kgs throughout my studies and recent
working life adulting, I knew I needed to take back my life and regain my health. And so, FITNESSGIRL was born on 1 January 2016. I started the Instagram account primarily as a visual diary to document my 2016 transformation. Oft termed a commit device, FITNESSGIRL has really provided me with the motivation to achieve my fitness goals. After receiving an overwhelming following on social media, I decided to start this website to further document my health and fitness journey. Besides from showcasing my transformation, FITNESSGIRL will also provide the reader with restaurant reviews, health and fitness collaborations and be a window into my busy lifestyle.
My hope is that through reading the posts on this website, you too will feel inspired to start your own fitness journey or follow a more health conscious and active lifestyle.
