Its been quite some time since we last featured Roxy Amas, four years to be exact. Now, looking hotter than ever, we bring her back to you as our LW Babe of the Week.
Full name: Roxy Amas
Day job: makeup artist full time
Its been a while since we last featured you and we’re excited to have you back as this week’s LW Babe. What’s been happening in the life of Roxy since we last featured you in 2014?
Wow, so much has happened since 2014. I started competing in 2015, and have done 12 shows since then both nationally and internationally. Grew my name in the fitness industry. I turned pro this year and came 6th in the world out of 70 girls at WBFF Worlds. I got married last year, I started my own makeup business this year.
What has been the most unexpected thing you have experienced over the past 4 years?
Definitely placing 6th at WBFF Worlds being my first international WBFF show.
How much have you changed as a person or are you still the same Roxy we interviewed then?
Oh, I have changed so much. I’ve matured a lot and learnt so much.
What does a day in your life usually consist of?
Right now I’m off season, so it’s completely different to a few months ago. Right now it’s pretty chilled as I work from home and only work on bookings. I’m up by around 6.30am, have breakfast, in gym doing cardio by around 7.30am for an hour, if I have makeup clients I make sure everything is prepared for that. I train again in the afternoon around 3pm, on Tuesdays and Thursdays I’m a trainer at Rishape Umhlanga.
If you could experience any moment in history first hand, which would it be and why?
OMG, this is such a tough question. As a South African I would have to say 1994, the first free and fare multi-racial election and equality for all. This also led to a change in the constitution with provision for women’s rights that was introduced and a commission for gender equality was set up.
What are the top three things to do on your bucket list?
To travel more, hike up Lions Head and snorkel in the Maldives.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
I’m really quiet and reserved in real life unlike my social media, but once I get to know a person I’m crazy as hell.
You obviously know how to keep your body in check. How strict are you on yourself when it comes to the fitness lifestyle?
When I’m prepping for a show I follow my diet and training to a T, and training three times a day, six times a week. However now I just eat about five meals a day train twice a day, five or six times a week. I still have a cheat meal once a week but I’m not super strict at the moment.
Which part of your body if your favourite?
My bum [laughs], because I train it the hardest and I’m proud of my gains.
Where would you like to see your role in the fitness industry take you?
I just want to inspire and motivate others to reach their fitness goals as I have.
What is your definition of sex appeal?
Someone who has their life together and doesn’t need validation from anyone. Someone that’s not conceited, vein or arrogant but is still confident and carries themselves well.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
Definitely with at least 2 babies [laughs]. I plan to start a family one day soon.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
Cheat days? Donuts or cheesecake.
Passion? Living life to the fullest.
Chivalry? Is dead, most men don’t even know what that is.
Turn on? Manners, honesty and chivalry.
Turn off? Rudeness of any sort and people thinking they are better than others.
Addictive? Netflix series. St the moment I’m watching The Haunting of Hill House, I’m a sucker for messed up scary shows.
