One of the most fitness bunnies in South Africa, Sbahle Mpisane, has graduated with her Bachelor’s degree from the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN). Celebrity fitness trainer Sbahle Mpisane has obtained a degree in Housing and Town planning on Monday.

When asked about choosing the UKZN, Sbahle said “I chose UKZN because it’s always easier to stay grounded when you are close to home. From studying architecture to housing‚ it all goes back to passion in technical drawings‚ reading maps and enjoying practical work.”


“I don’t know how many times I contemplated quitting my studies because I was so busy. Getting this degree has been a surprise to myself more than anyone. After every negative thought‚ I always reminded myself why I needed to complete my degree.

“Juggling my social life‚ work life and private life was challenging but I always knew my priorities and school always came first before anything. The thought of making my parents proud was my biggest drive‚” she said.

“I remember being in Mr Vincent Myeni’s office and crying my lungs out and all he said was ‘you’re nearly at the end‚ forget everything and focus on completing your studies because you will get all the time afterwards to be a diva and follow your passion in fitness’.”
