Sexy Nerd Loves Fitness, IT and God -- An Interview with Monice Potgieter

        My name is Monice Potgieter, I am 22 years old and I live in sunny South Africa.
        I am a part time student, in my 3rd year for Bsc Computer Systems (Through Heriot Watt University), so yes I’m kind of a nerd haha.
        I also work full time as an Instructor, I teach at a college called CTI College and the course I present is Information Systems Network Engineering.
        I also am a child of God, I believe Jesus died for my sins on the cross and we need to tell the whole world about His amazing grace :)
        As you can notice my main interests are Fitness, IT, and God.

2. Married?

        I am not married, but I am currently in a relationship with someone.

3. For how long you've been working out and what progress have you made?
        I have been working out hard for 3 years, I have gained a lot of muscle since then, and all I am focusing on now is gaining muscle maturity which will come with time.

4. Which is your favorite exercise?

7. Do guys usually hit on you at the gym?


8. If the answer is "yes", which is the worst pick-up line you ever heard?
