How Bodybuilding has helped Emma find herself!

From a young age, being in a bikini competition was something that always appealed to me. I finally decided to go for it last August, not knowing how much dedication it was going to take. Being only seventeen years old, I had never watched what I was eating until this point. I had no idea how much dedication sticking to a diet 100% of the time for twelve weeks was going to take.

It was amazing how after just a week of eating clean, I felt so good and had so much energy. Being a senior in high school, this lifestyle was also a huge social adjustment. I used to do what everyone else would do, but this year that changed. When my friends have birthday dinners, I bring my own food or eat before. I was also used to going out every weekend and this also had to change. It’s hard because sometimes people will encourage me to go off my diet at a time where that’s not an option and I have to hold my ground.

"Bodybuilding has taught me a lot about living a life that’s for me." - Emma Hartmayer
Having my mom in prep with me this time around has been a great experience because there's someone else in my household that also has to eat a really clean diet. It’s also been nice to have someone that lives with me, that I can talk to about my weekly weight goals, posing, training ,etc. As most competitors know, no one truly understands everything that goes into competition unless they’ve actually done it themselves, so being able to share that with my mom is very special. I am proud to say that I have such a supportive family, trainer, team, and group of friends behind me.

Most people would probably think that being in high school, girls my age would be catty about what I do, but most are super supportive. In fact, I actually receive most judgement from adults who find it “inappropriate”. Bodybuilding has taught me a lot about living a life that’s for me and doing what I want to do. I used to care a lot about what others think and bodybuilding has made me stop caring about that, and just do what makes me happy. I’m so glad that I have found something at such a young age that pushes me to be a better version of myself everyday. I can’t wait to see what this season has in store for me!
