IT was lights, action and highly toned bodies at this year’s BBSA/IFBB Miss SA Fitness Xtreme competition, held at the Pretoria East Event Centre.
Not even the cold weather could keep these dedicated athletes away from vying to be the best in their category.
Gregarious MC’s Miss SA 2009, Nicole Flint and DJ Rick Emdin, ensured that the show was kept up beat and the audience entertained during the competition.
The nine BBSA IFBB national judges had their work cut out for them as they scrutinized each athlete considering; the overall figure tone, a healthy, balanced & symmetrical figure, femininity, complexion, hair and make-up, poise and grace and confidence.

We asked Nina ‘Why are you doing this? She very quickly responded “ To demonstrate to EVERY woman that real Personal Peace and Power is possible within themselves and to also uplift South African women. The modern woman is faced with a multitude of pressures, expectations and challenges. She can choose Peace, Power and Prosperity if they just choose to put their minds to a Lifestyle of Positive Choice, self Respect, discipline and diligence. She can have the body mind and soul of a CHAMPION!”
