She knows she’s got it.
It’s not in the way her gym gear clings to her bronzed body or in the way her genes complement her commitment.
She’s got it because she knows it.
Confidence is what it’s all about.
The perfect body and genes help of course.
With summer reportedly just around the corner (believe it or not), Bellville’s Michelene Adamo spoke to TygerBurger about staying fit, eating properly and the benefits of looking good.
This nutritionist, dancer and fitness coach recently won Ms Bikini at the Mr and Ms Fitness event and was, as a result, nominated to represent South Africa in Las Vegas in November.
The 37-year-old beauty competed against youngsters almost half her age, but she triumphed nonetheless. The expression “run-of-the-mill” simply doesn’t apply to her.
So, ordinary people like you and me might well think we will never look good in a bikini, so why read further – people’s eyes will self-destruct if they had to see me in a bikini?
Michelene, however, reckons it’s not really how you look, but how you feel.
“There are a lot of women who might be slightly overweight, but they are full of confidence, voluptuous and absolutely beautiful. They look stunning! For me it’s all about health,” she emphasises.
As a nutritionist one can expect her to be health-conscious and she doesn’t disappoint.
“Everybody seems to have it the wrong way around. They avoid fatty products, but in my opinion you have to go all natural – full creams, natural fat and stay away from the starch. Meat is very good and is top of my list,” she smiles.
Thankfully Michelene adds that you can spoil yourself once or twice over weekends by reaching for the chocolates.
Exercise is obviously an important part of the equation. Michelene reckons one should find something you are passionate about (such as dancing) and just do it.
The last thing people will do is follow her example and gym one hour a day every day of the week, but then again, most people won’t be representing the country in Vegas.
Hopefully she will be heading that way. problem is, she needs to raise enough funds for the trip.
“The whole trip will cost me about R30 000,”she says. “I’m really hoping to get sponsors. In turn I can market their products, do speeches for them or simply to be ready whenever they need me!”
Michelene certainly has determination on her side.
One gets the feeling that if she cannot go, she wouldn’t let it stand in her way of getting people to feel better about themselves.
She concludes: “If you’re not having fun, you’re doing it wrong. My passion is dance and nutrition… and through my passions, I desire to inspire others to live their best life!”
Now, for a change, she is depending on others to help her make an impression on a global stage.
