Last weekend I interviewed all the athletes at the Pure Elite world championships for a channel. I competed with Pure Elite back in April and won a total of three trophies. One of the prizes was the overall female winner voted by the audience competing with more than 200 others on stage which left me feeling extremely ecstatic. Although I qualified for the world championships, I decided not to compete and to let myself rest and enjoy the offseason a little longer. Getting ready for a competition requires extreme dedication, training and dieting that is very exhausting and not sustainable as a lifestyle.
It was amazing getting to interview other competitors and ask them personal questions about their lifestyle and their journeys. I also find it very interesting to learn from others about their struggles, their background and what got them into competing. For me, it was all about setting a challenging goal and becoming the best version of myself that I ever created. For those of you that are not aware, Pure Elite is the fastest growing bodybuilding federation in Europe and in my experience the very best to compete with! They host some of the best competitions with the most amazing physiques on stage.
This past weekend I was one of the judges at the Miss World Classic, a fitness modeling competition for 100 beautiful ladies that graced the stage in a very glamorous and luxurious setting. The event featured round tables with ball gowns and tuxedos and dinner was served as the women graced the catwalk. I was extremely ecstatic that I was invited to be a judge and found it a very hard decision deciding who should be the winner. This amazing event was organized by Natasha Murray from NGM models. It was without a doubt one of the most glamorous events of the year. The photo at the top of this post shows me judging the MW Classic.
Although these competitions do not exist in our part of the world, I am always encouraging anyone who has the means to get into it. Whether you win or not, it is all about setting a challenging goal and accomplishing it. It’s a challenge against you and yourself which means you can never lose, only if you give up and do not reach your goal. If anyone would like more information, feel free to drop me an email!
