Hi! I’m Pia!
In my early 30’s I was smoking 40-a-day, obese, sedentary, working crazy hours in my corporate job – and no surprise here – pre-diabetic and on a slippery slope of declining health. I managed to kick the smoking habit, and after a brief foray into CrossFit I found powerlifting and have never looked back.
Over the last 6 years I have been fortunate to compete at world level multiple times, as well as winning multiple South African national championships and setting over 12 national records across 2 weight classes.
During this time, I became increasingly interested in nutrition, not only to move myself into a healthier body fat range, but also in looking for that extra little bit that would get me to the podium. In addition to being a long-standing FFN client, I have completed FFN’s own nutrition coaching course, and am Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified Coach.
