Fitness With Khumz – Week 1

Hey there, so I used to be super fit with big chunky muscles and a 6 pack then life happened and I involuntarily traded-in the muscles for the other stuff and also traded in my 6 pack for the amazing one pack!!!

Fast forward many many many years of abuse to my body and deteriorated health, I find myself in November 2019 seriously thinking about my health. It could be because of work stress or perhaps just early mid-life crisis but whatever the motivation… I have decided to start working out again by jogging with members of my community and I’m hoping to blog about my journey once a week and share my struggles and successes in the hope of maybe inspiring someone out there to get fit and lead a healthier life.

Please note that you must see a physician before engaging in any fitness program; all my publications are for entertainment only. I am not a trained physician nor am I a qualified trainer… I’m just a guy that wants to age gracefully kuphela (only) and if possible not age at all… jajaja

The good thing is that I will not be using hard medical jargon to try and sound more intelligent than I really am so you can expect very simple English with some Ndebele words here and there… If you want to know my background then you can see a brief profile here (

Feel free to try some of my workout routines and crazy diets; I may, if permitted, post twitter updates through the @zimshoppingmall twitter handle so hey let’s engage and get fit together. We can be virtual workout buddies;)

So don’t laugh, I will be sharing some images of my progress and eventually some videos… I’m not really a funny guy but will try to not be boring jajaja. Anyways… below are photos I took this afternoon – goodness me. So I’m hoping to have a six-pack by February 2020 working out just 3 times a week. Feel free to engage with me in the comments below. I will try to respond to all messages. Remember to always seek the advice of a qualified physician as my posts are for entertainment purposes only.

Before I post the photos, I just want to thank Nonokai for inspiring me to get fit… And of course my jogging team from my community that I have been jogging with for the past 2 weeks. As I mentioned I will only be jogging 3 times per week and no more!!! With my jogging partners’ permission, I may occasionally share our workout photos…
