Hlubi Mboya has an unbelievable body. That’s probably because she’s got an unbelievable sporting discipline: mountain biking, competitive bodybuilding, obstacle racing, Strictly Come Dancing contestant, conquering Kili… I’m genetically muscular and lucky to have a good foundation of sporty DNA, says Hlubi, who’s been fit since being on her school’s hockey, netball and athletics teams. As I grew up, I changed the kind of sporting codes I’ve done – which has changed the way I look. Currently, she’s loving training out in the open. Outdoor training is not about how I look in the mirror; it encourages me to feel good about myself, she says – and that’s good for her career. I’m in an industry where our looks give us longevity in our careers, which is so fed up. But this has spurred me on to taking care of myself, so I get leading roles.
I don’t train to burn kilojoules. I train so that when the day comes to deal with the bad guys, leap across trains or climb burning buildings, I can do it all. She’s also very clear about what she puts into her body. I hate the word ‘diet’. It’s about nutrition. I stay away from processed food and my veg and fruit need to be all colours of the rainbow. And when I train competitively, I have whey protein. Food helps you change from the inside out. But she understands that it’s a balance.
I have a social life. I train hard but I love Champagne, cupcakes and a good braai. You’ve gotta live life. Hlubi recently received certification in exercise science and sports conditioning and training from the Health and Fitness Professionals Academy. With her licence to train, there’s a whole world of activity she’s looking to conquer. > 5am Wake up, drink lemon water. I do this every morning and chase it with black coffee. 8am Breakfast: fruit with yoghurt. I change it up with oats. It’s the perfect breakfast and I use it when I go on my cleansing diet. 1pm Shopping (A 30-minute walk around the mall counts as legit exercise!) 4pm Snack: handful of almonds 7pm Supper: tuna salad and roast potato. Tuna is always on my shopping list.
I use it for my dinner salads and it’s also awesome as part of a post-workout meal. 6am Five-kay run. I think cardio is more for weight loss than for muscle gain and toning. I only do cardio when I want to lose kilos before getting back into weight training. 10am Snack: boiled egg 2pm Lunch: chicken, avo-‘Tm addicted to avo! – and kale salad 6pm One-hour, 30-min boxing class, followed by a whey-protein shake. Because of all the processed food we eat and our poor diets, we need assistance. Whey protein is amazing for muscle gain. 8pm Bedtime.
