Bloem female bodybuilder shows her mettle

Emely Tembe from Bloemfontein was placed first in the Wellness open class A at the NPC Worldwide African Pro Qualifier recently held in Johannesburg

“When you want to enter a competition such as this, never go with the mentality of wanting to look better than the next person or wanting to win, but rather to check and lay a solid foundation for yourself for the next time.”

This is according to Emely Tembe from Bloemfontein who was placed first in the Wellness Open Class A at the NPC Worldwide African Pro Qualifier held in Johannesburg. “The placing for me was the cherry on the cake. Dealing with everything I had to go through during my preparation, such as injuries and emotions, I still managed to come out at the top.”

Tembe started her bodybuilding career in 2015 and explained to Bloemfontein Courant that the preparation for the competition was hard this time around. “I had to work extra hard to get finances together so that I could get the supplements, food, travelling costs and all the other things I needed for show day.”

Regardless of what she was going through during her preparations, she made sure that she trained every day. “I worked hard right through from the start to the end, hoping that my hard work would pay off, which it did.”
