Divas Fitness' approach to exercise promises women an experience that will change the way they see themselves both inside and out by including elements of emotional as well as psychological wellness.
“At Divas Fitness it is more than just body goals; it is mind, soul and body,” Liezel says. “It is about finding the balance, gaining confidence, and most importantly about women empowering women. It doesn't help to just dream it, it takes time to work towards it and actually live it.”
Ndjaronguru, who was raised by her grandmother in Khomasdal, has always been inspired by her upbringing, which she says is what makes her passionate about women empowerment, fitness and health. Her grandmother, who she describes as a strong and hardworking woman with a big heart, has played a huge role in her life.
“I have worked in the health and fitness industry for the past seven years and it has always been my dream to provide a platform and opportunity to help women change the way they see themselves and their bodies,” she said.
Liezel's dream became a reality last week as she opened Divas Fitness located in the heart of Khomasdal.
An amazing turnout made her realise what need there is amongst women to stay fit and how they hunger to increase their confidence in a fun way. “I was pleasantly surprised to have so many ladies support this new venture. A lot of hard work has been put into this new venture and through Namibians supporting Namibians, we can continue to facilitate such platforms,” she said.
Even though there have been many challenges, Liezel says that positivity, consistency and self-motivation are critical. “There were days that I reanalyse my business decision to leave my full-time job, but the turnout at the opening reminded me of my purpose. It's necessary to get out of your comfort zone, to spread your wings and take a leap of faith.”
The ladies in attendance commended Diva Fitness for customising their workouts based on the needs of women, applauding Liezel for allowing different women with different shapes and sizes to feel comfortable in their own skin.
