Renae has a very active and eclectic lifestyle in place to sustain her enviable figure.

Instead, she mixes it up and goes for different fitness classes including water aerobics, high-intensity cardio, and body combat.
She complements her workout regime by eating a healthy and balanced diet. However, that doesn’t mean that she is averse to having some chocolate on cheat days.
