LW Mag is proud to introduce Sinead Kotze in one of her first photo shoots ever! We’re privileged to bring her to you as our LW Babe of the Week, and we’re sure you’ll agree with us when we say – we cant wait to see more of her!
Full name: Sinead Kotze
Day job: Currently I am in the process of opening up my own business, so my time and energy is going towards that while working towards finishing my Marketing Degree
Likes: The outdoors, hiking, going to the beach, spending the day out in the sun or pool. Trying new foods, exploring places I have never been to. I love to train, keeping healthy and fit while still enjoying carb loaded food from time to time [laughs]. Spending time with my boyfriend, friends and family. I also have a love for tattoos as you can see.
Dislikes: I can’t stand when people are arrogant, materialistic or vein. It doesn’t matter if you’re a 10 because if you have a bad attitude you’re instantly a 0. Looks and money aren’t everything. In my eyes you have to have substance and something more to offer in life.
Special talent: [Laughs] Does leg pressing 7 x my body weight count…480kgs
How would you best explain your personality?
I am very ambitious and strong hearted. If I want something I’ll work my ass off till I get it.Very adventurous and always up for a late night drive somewhere or a spontaneous day trip out. I can be quite the clown, which the people closest to me know [laughs]. I’ve become very strong willed with my goals, always refusing to give up no matter what the odds. I’m also quite the softy with a big heart and very loyal, I’ll do anything for those I love or care about!
If we had to step into your shoes for a day, what would we experience?
Well right now you’d experience training for most of the day as I am prepping for my IFBB comp. My day starts at 5am at the gym to do cardio, I’m there till half 6. During the day I’m working on my business and my studies. On the occasion I’ll be working at an expo like Comic Con or Rage or one of my favorites, Bike Fest! Actually love all 3 to be honest. Night time is training again or relaxing at home during the week as I’m drained by end of the day. Weekends are more fun and I always look forward to them.
New to modeling, what was it like to step in font of the camera?
I was nervous but really excited to take the first step into modeling. Something I have always wanted to do but never had the courage to do so until this year.
How would you best sum up your shoot with us for his feature?
The shoot was a lot of fun and made me really excited for future ones, and made me realise I need to go for everything I want in life, can’t let fear get in the way.
Do you see yourself doing more modeling in the future, and where would you like to see it take you?
I definitely would love to do more modeling in the future. One of my goals is to be on the cover of a fitness magazine, or be featured in one. I’d love to be the face of a brand.
Which part of your body is your favorite?
My legs and bum, those I’ve worked the hardest on! I wasn’t always curvy, I was actually quite the stick figure growing up and honestly couldn’t wait till I could be in the gym working towards a body I felt comfortable in.
What drives you?
Proving myself right. It used to be about the people I needed to prove wrong, the ones who never believed in me but now it’s to go for my goals and my dreams and to make a success of my life, even though it hasn’t always been the easiest.
What era would you have liked most to grow up in?
I always say the 80s, as I was brought up on that music. 80s rock and oldies with some reggae to add to it. I would’ve loved to have experienced what it was like, the concerts, the way they dressed, just everything. But, at the same time I’m happy that I’m here in this era where fitness and health and everything I’m passionate about is booming, have to make the most of where you are now.
What is your definition of sexy?
What about a guy grabs your attention?
When a guy is humble, has a great sense of humor, is soft hearted and I can be myself around them, and it doesn’t feel like they judging everything I say or do.
With summer holidays around the corner, what do you have planned for the festival season?
I would like to go down to coast again, maybe go to Cape town as I’ve never been there. Soak up the sun, maybe take a trip out to Sun City. Just have a fun filled December with my boyfriend and friends. Just enjoy life at the end of a busy busy year. Oh, and eat lots of great food with the families.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Hot and bothered? I think of laying on the beach and taking a dip in the waves or pool.
Indulgence? Chocolate [laughs], cheat meal dates.
Ambition? It doesn’t matter where you came from, it only matters where you’re heading.
Bucket list? Travel all over the world. Experience different cultures and foods. Go to Golds Gym and Venice Beach. Aaah… so many things [laughs].
