Meet Leah Moumakoa
A home-based personal trainer, Leah loves helping people challenge their body. With over a decade of experience, she says that working with people and helping them get fit, is her life’s purpose. With a dream to help the kids in her community find opportunities through sport, Leah also couches rugby.
“I grew up in a township, so I know the issues these kids are faced with. Through sport, the kids can have fun, tackle social issues and build life skills. Sport is more than just a game, it’s one of the best ways for kids to learn teamwork, discipline, tolerance and value of fair play,” she explains. With a big heart and an even bigger passion for fitness, Leah is determined to change more than just bodies- but lives too.
Just Push It!
If you’re tired of just plain boring old push-ups, give this push-up variation a try. It combines the strengthening powers of push-ups with the fat burning abilities of the burpee. Leah explains how you can do this exercise as your warm-up or add it to your workout.
“It’s either as many repetitions of push-ups you can do or add in a burpee or jump squats. This gets your blood pumping and makes for great cardio. Do the exercise for 1 minute, then rest 30-45 seconds, completing 3-4 sets.”
