About Wave Workouts

Michelle’s love and passion for health and fitness came from her years of competitive swimming, which began with her selection for the National Team at just 14 years old. Since then, she has been competing relentlessly.

In 2017, Michelle took matters into her own hands and began designing her own swim and gym programs. Her hard work and dedication have paid off, resulting in her breaking the World Record for Fastest Female Robben Island Crossing (7.5km), becoming the fastest South African Female to swim the English Channel (35km), and even competing in the 10km Open Water Event at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

While still swimming herself, Michelle’s focus has also shifted to coaching and inspiring others to achieve their fitness goals through her training platform, Wave Workouts.
