Fitness expert weighs in on Thapelo's journey

Speaking exclusively with Briefly News, Mothusi Maepa, founder of the Fitness Corner and Certified Personal Trainer at Loftus VA said it is important to remain consistent in one's fitness journey. He said:

"Yes, consistency is important in exercising because that is one of the few factors from which one will likely see results. From a personal trainer's perspective, motivation comes from within a person; that mostly boils down to a client seeing results and being disciplined.
"As a personal trainer, I can often help clients understand the importance of consistency by educating them about the benefits of exercise, making them understand the importance of involving others for support (i.e., spousal support, gym partner ), etc.
