She’s a model babe turned TV presenter for The Crowd Goes Wild and Sky Sports’ Random Rugby TV. We caught up with Makere to talk heath, fitness and feeling bikini-body confident.
What does it mean to you that you’re the first female presenter of Random Rugby TV?
A lot of people associate men with sports, but there are a lot of females out there who enjoy rugby, and there are also a lot who play the sport too. So I feel honored to represent them and help support their involvement in the game.
What do you do to keep fit?
I love yoga – that’s my go-to. I also play tennis over summer at a competitive level, so there’s a bit of training involved with that. I also have an awesome trainer James Miller at Next Gen Gym to mix it up and give me that extra motivation that I need some days. If I can’t get in something active for the day, then it’s a simple walk with my pug.
What do you do to feel bikini-body confident?
As long I keep up with my active and healthy lifestyle then I’m confident in a bikini. I also think it’s important to accept your body for what it is and embrace it.
The silly season is upon us, which for most means drinking and eating… lots! What do you do to keep a balance over the holidays?
I like the saying “everything in moderation”. I will definitely have cheat days – more so on Christmas day. I”ll swim, walk and keep active a little each day. Let’s be honest, we aren’t on holiday every day so make the most of it. Before you know it, it’s back to work and into that routine of working out and eating healthy.

What are your top 5 must have items for your active summer wardrobe?
adidas work out 3/4 tights – They’re good for the summer season and I like the coloured print.
adidas yogi tank – The relaxed fit makes it comfy for all workouts.
adidas top cropped long sleeve t-shirt – This is perfect to throw on on your way to the gym or class.
adidas racer back bra – It has great support and is also very stylish for summer to wear by itself.
adidas work out long tight – just because you need a long pair in your wardrobe. They’re great for hot yoga; bare legs can be hard to grip onto for yoga poses.
