Where does one begin when describing Rushtush? We could tell you about her growing fitness empire, her huge social media influence, the way she has made fitness and health something tangible and real for women across South Africa (and the world) or we could tell you that she’s also a full time mom and wife.
How about we keep it short and sweet… Rushda Moosajee (aka Rushtush) is a real life superhero.
She has her own fitness and lifestyle app, she speaks at fitness events, she’s launched her own range of apparel, her own range of beauty products and her own range of pharmaceuticals. This woman does not mess around!
It’s fairly obvious we love Rushtush (and yes, she makes our jewellery look amazing) but we especially love her attitude towards women, health and being happy with yourself. In fact, we’ll quote her directly from her website, ‘…most women are all after a common goal – they want to be confident, feel strong, stand tall and be able to hold their own.’ That is something we strongly support and an ideology we built into our brand from the very beginning. Rushtush is one of us!
The good news is Rushtush was able to take a little bit of time off from saving the world to answer our Best questions. We do hope you enjoy reading them. Right – we’re off to do some kettlebell swings.
What do you do for a living?
I provide women worldwide with tools to transform their minds and bodies!
What is a weird fact about yourself that you find absolutely wonderful?
I have this ability to visualize something into a reality, whatever it takes.
If you could be world famous for something, what would you like it to be and why?
For changing lives through fitness and health.
If you want to feel great, what is the one item you always turn to and find yourself wearing? What makes it so special to you?
It’s a tie! Between my GOLD jewels, especially my earrings, and LIPSTICK! Even when I step out for a run, my earrings and mouth will be painted. Drawing attention to my mouth is vital when the things you speak make impact.
What are the top five songs everyone needs to hear right now?
What's the best meal you've ever had in your life? Where did you have it?
SO MANY. Although in my 30s I’ve managed to recreate a lot of my mom’s comfort food, which I might even make better, enjoyed pregnant on my couch lol!
What is your favourite ornament/item of furniture in your home? Where did you get it from and what do you love about it?
Our custom made bed! It’s where me and my two sons snuggle and play!
What is your holy grail make up/skincare product?
Holistic health radiates through to your skin! Skin clarity, brightness and plumpness is directly related to nutrition and exercise!
What habit/ritual do you do each day to keep you sane?
Kettlebells & looking at my boys’ faces!
What does five years from now look and feel like?
Ooh... 5 years from now I’ll be done with all my pregnancies SHOO! Rushtush will be running itself. By then I’ll be a multi-millionaire (lol) and building my dream family home. Everything is working in my life, because I am working!
If you could put one sentence or idea on a billboard or poster for everyone to see, what would it be and why?
A pic of my ass in a thong!
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
OOOOH. My husband once said, “I know you can do it.” then I never stopped doing it! Haha!
What’s the worst?
Injustices of apartheid several years later. Systemic racism, GBV, poverty and famine.
When do you feel like your Best self?
After a trail run!
What do you think the world needs more of?
Kindness and understanding.
What does the world need less of?
If you could go back in time and speak to yourself as a child, what would you say?
Hey girl! I'm proud of you!
What do you value most in a friendship?
Communication! To share time with people that take my mind off work, where I don’t need to check my phone!
If you could get a glimpse into your own future, would you want to?
NO! Lol why ruin the surprise? Every day I wake up in shock that this is my life! I did it!
