Introducing Jessie Rautenbach as our LW Babe of the Week. A swim coach who’s finely toned body has our jaws dropped to the floor. Get to know her here.
Full name: Jessica Rautenbach
Day job: Swim Coach
Likes: There is nothing better than my family
Dislikes: I don’t appreciate people who demotivate or discourage others. If someone is trying they need as much, if not more, support than someone succeeding
Special talents: I was a dancer for 19 years and was apart of the South African National Dance Team competing in Reisa Germany, and Porěc Croatia for the Dance World Cup.
Give us an introduction into who Jessica Rautenbach is?
This is never an easy question to answer. Like a lot of people, there are a few sides to me… I enjoy the simplicity of life, really appreciating the little things. I can be quite stubborn and hard headed when it comes to my personal goals. I’m an all or nothing kind of girl in that sense. Despite this, I’m gentle natured and have a very soft heart especially when it comes to my family and loved ones.
What does a day in your life consist of?
A day in the life of Jessica, would start off with Fasted Cardio every morning. Followed by my favourite Americano coffee from Seattle Coffee Co to get my day started. I have recently started my own aesthetics wear brand called Volcanic Aesthetics, which I usually work on in the mornings, designing new apparel or meeting with costumers.
Afternoons, I work part time at virgin active Meyersdal as a swim coach where I teach the learn-to-swim program as well as stroke correction. I get to work with the most amazing children everyday, they bring out the kid in me. I love how playful I am allowed to be, to let my imagination work a little as an adult. Weight training is done in the evenings specific to my program – this is the best part of my day. It allows me to just leave the day in the gym. It just clears my mind, where I’m only focused on the goals ahead.
If you could own any one thing for a day, what would it be?
A glass dome plane with my own personal pilot, so I can have a bird’s eye view of the world and go wherever my heart desires.
You obviously know how to keep you body in shape. What are some of your favorite workouts/ routines?
I absolutely love leg day. Some of my favourite workouts are Bulgarian split squats, sumo squats, leg extensions and standing hammie curls. Triceps are another favourite, with cable kick backs and body weight tricep dips.
What are some of the favorite parts of your body?
My legs are definitely a favourite, I think because it’s the one muscle group I really focus on. I also love my shoulders, they have transformed immensely and I am proud of that.
What do you like to do with your downtime?
When it’s downtime, I really try to focus on the mind, body and spirit. I incorporate meditation and yoga to get somewhat of a clear mind for the next task or activity that will follow.
What are weekends made for?
Family and friends.
What attracts you to a guy?
Brown eyes! It’s a must. Determination and also someone who is into fitness.
Tell us something that most people don’t know about you?
Although I’m energetic and active, I am somewhat of an introvert. I enjoy my own time and being alone.
What is your idea of sensual?
What happens in bed, stays in bed [winks].
What are you turn ons and turn offs?
Turn ons – Someone who is motivated, someone who is expressive and adventurous.
Turn offs – Feet must be kept away at all times.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
In 5 years I hope that my aesthetics business will take off and be successful. I see myself still competing in aesthetics and hopefully competing at worlds.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Early mornings? Cardio (my coach has trained me well).
Fun? New places.
Adrenaline? Rush, excitement.
Flirting? Sensual smile.
