Fitness Interview with Radio DJ Shante Williams


DJ Shanté Williams is an on-air mixer for 93.7 The Beat in Houston, Texas. Her passion and enthusiasm for a healthy lifestyle through fitness is one of the reasons we named her among the Top 10 Fittest Radio Personalities in Houston 2019, which was also picked up by the Houston Chronicle. She does various exercises including weight lifting, HIIT, and kickboxing, but don’t let us tell you- continue reading our exclusive interview to hear more about how she stays active and what inspires her:

HFR: What is your daily exercise and nutrition routine?

DJ Shanté: I work out 5 days a week with a trainer. We focus on HIIT and heavy lifting. She has me on a strict competition diet that includes 5 meals a day: lean protein, low-carb, and lots of veggies. 

HFR: What keeps you motivated to stay healthy?

DJ Shanté: Honestly looking at the way my trainer looks keeps me motivated because I want to look just like her! (laughs) Also because of my lifestyle, it is very easy to get caught up in bad eating habits and alcohol- which is what I’ve been dealing with the last 5 years. I finally made the decision to change it. 

HFR: Do you believe that being fit and healthy has contributed to your successful career?

DJ Shanté: Yes I do believe it has. Because the more healthy and fit I am, the more energy I have to be able to do all the jobs that I have. 

HFR: What inspires you, in general?

DJ Shanté: Success inspires me. Being GREAT inspires me.
