Tanya is the author of two internationally released fitness books and is also a holistic lifestyle coach and metabolic typing advisor.
In the past decade, she has been involved in developing training courses, lecturing and writing on behalf of educational institutions and contributing to a number of health and fitness magazines.
She serves on the Advisory Board of Shape magazine and writes monthly for the PE-based newspapers, Sport Elizabeth and Walmer Sun.
Tanya's work is not main-stream. She was trained by both the Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology Institute and Healthexcel - both American-founded institutes in the UK.
The thrust of her work centres around optimal cellular health through the use of traditional nutritional and lifestyle practices.
Tanya is of the opinion that true health begins with knowledge, and says "I believe good nutrition and positive lifestyle habits are the ultimate key to a healthy life, but unless we understand what goes on inside our bodies as a result of the choices we make, we'll never achieve the optimum health and wellbeing we desire".
