From an inactive 120kgs to an 11:20 IRONMAN finisher, Luvuyo Bangazi is an inspiration, and proof that being overweight doesn’t have to fly.
’m a born and bred Eastern Cape local, I grew up in the small town of Queenstown, about 400km from my current hometown of Port Elizabeth. I’ve never been much of an active guy, there was a period between 1994 and 1996 during my first years at the University of Port Elizabeth where I spent some time in the gym pumping weights. It made my roomie very jealous but it didn’t last long. Suffice to say, I couldn’tswim, and hardly ever rode a bike for longer than 15 minutes. Fast forward to 2011, I was 36 years old and simply inactive, not involved in any form of sport or activity that would involve breaking a sweat. thing that was going for me was my career in advertising. I was Business Director at Boomtown Strategic Brand Agency, and this is where I really grew, both in my career and physically!
