Vili’s Back On Court Thanks To Jenny Craig

Since retiring from the Silver Ferns in 2007, Vilimaina Davu has been striving towards selection for the Trans-Tasman series, and thanks to Jenny Craig she’s off to a cracker of a season with the Mystics!

Vilimaina is the face of Jenny Craig’s new advertising campaign, onscreen this week, and has lost a total of 12kg since starting Jenny Craig in January.

“Selection for the Mystics was my ultimate goal and it feels so good to be playing netball again in New Zealand. There’s no way I would be back on the court if it wasn’t for the support of the Jenny Craig team to get me back into a healthy routine,” says Davu.

Jenny Craig aims to empower women, like Vilimania, to be the best they can be and to set realistic expectations for their weight loss and weight management. The Jenny Craig programme is based on leading a healthier lifestyle, not on dropping to a specific dress size.

Vilimaina is already noticing a difference in her overall health as well as on the scales.

“On the court last week I really felt that my energy levels and intensity had picked up. It’s the best feeling to see how my weight loss has improved my game.” says Vilimaina.

Amy Smith, Managing Director Jenny Craig Australia and New Zealand, says Jenny Craig is delighted with Vilimaina’s results so far.

“We’re excited to support Vili on her quest to get back in the game she loves. She’s achieved so much in a short time and we hope her results inspire other Kiwi women so they too can reach their goals for a healthier way of life.”

Vilimaina hopes to lose a further 18kg’s on the Jenny Craig programme. You can follow her weight loss journey on her blog at
