About Me

Hi! My name is Charmel Bush and I am your Wellness Coach.  I help you build sustainable lifestyle through mindset, nutrition and exercise so that you can become a healthier, happier, and more energetic version of yourself.


Since a young age I was obsessed with dieting to stay slim. In my younger days I was an amateur model and at the young age of 12 I already felt pressured to maintain a slim figure. Ladies and Gentlemen, I wasn’t heavy at all. I just believed that I was overweight. Because of my body shape.  It was all in the way I saw myself.  

It was only after I had my first child that I really experienced what being overweight was. Shortly after I had given birth, I took a trip to the shopping centre and I never felt so ashamed, depressed and miserable in my life.  I started dieting, trying one fad after the next. It was a never ending spiral. I spent so much money on weightloss products and nothing seemed to work. What I never knew was the baggage I was carrying was not because I was over eating, but it was for a different reason and I used "sugar" as comfort. I had to deal with a lot of emotional stuff first and fix my self esteem.  It was only until I paid attention to my existing beliefs and patterns of thinking I began questioning what I really wanted to do ito my weightloss.  

Then the day arrived, my body just couldn't handle it anymore. I started feeling the pains in my joints, out off breath at times. I knew I had to do something, otherwise I would end up being overweight for the rest of my life. 

Something needed to change within me to make a lasting change. I started exercising.  But I never enjoyed it until I found something that suited my lifestyle, that suited me and that I learnt to enjoy.  Now I maintain a healthy mindset, a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine.   I now love healthy nutrition and believe in a balanced diet.  Yes, you can have the cake, as long as it’s in moderation.  I exercise at least three times a week.  And I don’t overdo it.  I do what suits my lifestyle and what I love.  It doesn’t even feel like exercise.  

It was a game changer for me when my eldest son told me, "WE" are a fit family. "WE" meaning I am now included .  This is where my passion for wellness started.  

I want to help you reach the same level of wellness as I have.  Something that will be manageable for you and that will suit your lifestyle.  Making small changes in your daily habits consistently leads to big changes and huge results over time.
