Who's the fittest of them all? Unathi Msengana and Janez Vermeiren will battle it out for the fitness fanatic.

Talk about #fitspo! It's no wonder fitness fanatics Unathi Msengana and Janez Vermeiren have been named as ambassadors for Shield's MotionSense campaign, which focuses on the importance of keeping active.

The campaign, which kicked off this month, will pit the two local celebs against each other in various challenges.

Janez is known as a a bit of a fitness fanatic and lover of the outdoors, but the TV presenter does admit he's got a kryptonite.

"Anything with heights – it’s my biggest fear, but anything goes," he says.

Unathi, who has lost an impressive close to 30kgs over the past four years, says that because of all of the antics she's witnessed on Janez's ManCave show, she's sure that he has her work cut out for her.

"I know that he is in to like Thai kickboxing and that type of thing, so I'm dreading that or any kind of motor racing," she says.

But the Metro FM presenter and mom of two says that she has a few tricks up her sleeve that she is willing to use, including making Janez cook and eat things that he may not be used to.

Challenges aside, there's one thing the super-fit duo agree on: maintaining their toned physiques and healthy lifestyles is no walk in the park.

Unathi and Janez are both dedicated to working out and eating healthily, but being parents and running after kids does have it's benefits they say.
