Personal message

Hi everyone. I am Martie Maritz (Martha Morris). I am a 39-year-old divorced mom of a ten-year-old boy and nail and beauty therapist.

It has always been my dream to compete internationally in fitness and bodybuilding. However, being a chubby girl, I never thought I'd ever get to look like one of those girls. 

When I suffered an emotional setback, I decided it was time to make a change. Living in a small town in South Africa and working for myself made it even more of a challenge to fund the food and training required to excel in this sport. Nevermind affording a good trainer!

I was a wreck the first time I walked out on to that stage. Would people laugh at me?

But something happened when I put my foot on that stage and my life changed forever. This was 3 years ago.

About a year and a half ago I met a man who had been through a similar journey. He became my partner and best friend. He coaches and trains me. With his direction and my dedication, I recently competed in the first-ever IBFF Pro-Am cup in South Africa, where I took second place, fitness model over 35.

As a result, I have been chosen to represent South Africa in Slovenia next month 19 October at the IBFF Slovenia World Cup.

The competition is being held on the 19th of October 2019. Therefore, we need the funds by no later than 15 October 2019. Donations will be used for:

  • Flights
  • Transport
  • Accommodation
  • Food
  • Stage costume
  • Travel insurances

You will be making my dreams become a reality. It will put me on the international stage and boost my career. Small town girl on an international team.


*Funds raised will be paid directly to the IBFF*
