About MaKupsy

Hi there! My name is Mercy. I’m based in Harare, Zimbabwe.

I have two alter egos;

  1. MaKupsy; a combination of the word Amai (mother) and my daughter’s nickname Kupsy.
  2. Fitness Bae; the name I thrust upon myself because of my insane enthusiasm for fitness. Now I have to live up to that name and sometimes question why I even put myself up for such a task!

MaKupsy a.k.a Fitness Bae

Blogging was birthed from a place of pain. I was going through a heartbreak. I felt that my friends were probably tired of my constant whinging so I decided to put my thoughts in a blog one post at a time. 6 years later and my blog has exploded into a brand.

Here’s the fun part. One day I thought why not start a Fitness Blog seeing no-one else was doing that in Zimbabwe? A year into that project I won an award and got so amped up I was blogging like it was going out of fashion. Three years later and two awards in have experienced nothing but breath taking opportunities.

Grow a pair and ask for what you want.  I reached out to UnPlugged Zimbabwe in August 2017.  After I pitched my idea we partnered up and I became their Resident Blogger responsible for writing monthly articles on different themes related to the event.

I get to do cool things like meeting the CEO of NetOne Cellular through my Fitness Brand

I find it fascinating that over the years it’s the Fitness Bae brand that brings in the money and MaKupsy doesn’t stop churning content that has readers wanting more. It’s a win-win scenario. One can’t work without the other.

The biggest lesson that blogging has taught me is; “Whatever your mind conceives it can achieve.”  I believed my story would inspire someone and it not only did that but opened doors of opportunity to network and collaborate.
