TV Plus (South Africa) - - ACTION -

Not only is 33-year-old Khabon­ina a talented ac­tress and dancer, she’s also a fit­ness fa­natic and her love for fit­ness has landed her her own show called Gym eKasi, on the OpenView HD’s eKasi+ chan­nel at 19:00 on Tues­days.

How did Gym eKasi come about? The idea’s been on my mind for years. My aim was that if no chan­nel picked it up, I was go­ing to have it as an on­line show.

What im­pact are you try­ing to make on or­di­nary South Africans with the show?

It gives in­for­ma­tion on how to live a health­ier life­style. It also helps you work out with­out having to pay gym mem­ber­ship fees.

So what ex­er­cise tips can you give our read­ers?

Do ex­er­cises that you en­joy, wear some­thing com­fort­able and if you can get a work­out part­ner so that you’re mo­ti­vat­ing each other, that would be great.

So what’s your favourite type of ex­er­cise and why?

A lot of peo­ple just go to gym and do their ex­er­cis­ing with­out stretch­ing first, so for me stretch­ing is one of the best forms of ex­er­cises – and that’s why I love yoga. I also like run­ning and swim­ming be­cause they are great for car­dio and ton­ing. What’s your fit­ness phi­los­o­phy? A happy body equals a happy mind.
