People Say No Man Will Marry Me Due To My Muscles - Mary Got Fit

Ghanaian female bodybuilder Mary Nyarko Omarley, also known as Mary Got Fit claims that people constantly insult her and even tell her that she will never find a husband because of her muscles.

Mary is one of the few female bodybuilders in Ghana who is internationally recognised, despite the fact that the sport is dominated by men.

She began working out in order to gain weight. However, after realising the potential of her body’s abilities and receiving encouragement from friends, she decided to pursue the sport as a professional.

She recently became the first woman from West Africa to win a title at the NPC Worldwide African Pro Qualifier and presented it the award to President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House.

After successfully building her profile as a bodybuilder, she has had to face a constant barrage of cyberbullying in her career.

However, speaking about the stereotypes the faces due to bodybuilding, Mary said some people often say she won’t get a husband due to her muscular body.

“As a female bodybuilder in Ghana, you even testify that it is challenging. You’ve seen some social media posts and everything. How people are bashing me and sending insults”— she said, as quoted by 3news.

“Especially here in Ghana and Africa. They are like, hey, what are you doing? Why are you deforming your body? You will never get a man to marry, and you will not be able to give birth.” Mary, however, added that despite the trolls on social media, she’s in a relationship.

Mary revealed at the start of her career that what people said about her body affected her. She claimed that reading the hateful comments on social media had an impact on her workout routine, eating habits, and overall quality of life. She has since moved on from that phase and has fully accepted herself.

“Back then, when I started bodybuilding, I will cry and stop working out. I mean, I’m human. It was really tough because I had to build myself mentally.” as quoted by 3news

‘Mary Got Fit’ reveals that she follows a specific workout routine based on her immediate goal.
