Maman Fitcats Fitness
She started her fitness journey sometime around 2015. She was insecure and ashamed of her physique and also suffered from anorexia. With two years of hard work, she earned the first place in Natural Fitness Show (NFS for short) in small size bikini model and also won the first place in overall categories in 2017.
‘When I see this picture, I do not recognize myself. The anorexic and insecure Justine of two years ago would never have imagined touching the stands of a bodybuilding competition one day and even less, becoming the overall number one in the bikini category.’ Juju said in a Facebook post.
Definitely, it wasn’t easy for Juju to overcome her physical and mental issues. As you may know, being anorexic while you have a healthy body is probably a psychological effect.

From the start of her fitness journey, her family and friends were very supportive of her. ‘Yes, I am fortunate to be able to shout that I am one of those athletes who was supported by their loved ones, whether they understand my passion or not, they are, and they have been there for me, and I know it, they will always be.’ Juju said.
Maman Fitcats Opinion on a perfect figure
Despite her heavy workouts and fitness achievements, she encourages all the girls in the world to embrace their body and not to push themselves too hard to achieve the perfect figure. She posted a picture on Instagram with a very serious caption (unusual for her funny and casual attitude).
“I’m sick of seeing girls identifying the “perfect” physique thought the social media. Do you think that I am perfect? NO, I am not, and nobody is! Photoshop, posture, light, surgeries or even doping products come together to make these “perfect” physiques. But in my opinion, a figure is not perfect until it is utterly IMPERFECT! So, stop wanting to look like models that exist only in pictures. YES, I have big buttocks, big thighs, and yes, they are muscular. I train hard, but I also have this little layer of fat over my body because YES I like to eat .. and that’s why I’m good at training.”

Reality Moment. 🇫🇷 Photos prises à trois minutes d’écart ! DIFFICILE voire très DIFFFICILE de faire un poste comme celui-ci.. et j’ai longtemps hésité, vraiment.. Mais voilà, j’en ai marre de voir des jeunes filles s’identifier à des physiques « parfaits » à travers des réseaux ou même penser que JE suis parfaite, NON, je ne le suis pas et personne ne l’est ! Photoshop, posture, lumière, congestion, chirurgie ou même produits dopants sont à l’origine de ces physiques « parfaits ».. (Pour ma part, une bonne posture et le tour était joué) Mais selon moi, un physique n’est parfait que lorsqu’il est parfaitement IMPARFAIT ! Alors, arrêtez de vouloir ressembler à des physiques qui n’existent qu’en photo ou que grâce à des méthodes que je ne vous recommande pas.. OUI, j’ai de grosses fesses, de grosses cuisses, OUI elles sont musclées et me permettent de m’entraîner dur mais j’ai aussi cette petite couche de gras par dessus qui fait partie de moi parce que OUI j’aime manger.. et c’est grâce à ça que je suis performante à l’entraînement et croyez-moi, je préfère de loin ça à un physique parfait ou plutôt parfaitement ÉPHÉMÈRE ! Merci à ceux qui sont allé au bout de ce post, j’espère que certain(e)s se reconnaîtront ou seront apaisés en lisant ces quelques lignes ! Soyez-vous même car c’est comme cela que Maman Fitcats vous AIME ❤️ #teamfitcats #jujufitcats #teamshape

– Back, Shoulders, Biceps – J'ai testé une toute nouvelle manière de m'entraîner aujourd'hui, la séance a duré 1h mais c'était 1h très très intense ! J'ai fait chacun des 3 groupes musculaires en "trisets".. Le principe c'est de choisir trois exercices différents et de faire les trois à la suite avec un maximum de 10 à 12 répétitions et ensuite de prendre la pause pendant environ 2 minutes (plus longtemps si besoin) et de réaliser les exercices avec des charges assez lourdes ! C'est hard, ça fait vraiment mal mais c'est trop bon 🙀 Je crois que je commence à me construire un dos ? Bon, en tous les cas, moi, je commence à voir la différence ! Je trouve cela très important de travailler le dos pour une fille, notamment pour la posture et puis avoir un dos plus fort, ça permet de faire plus de squats alors.. HERE WE GO mes #fitcats 🐱 Sur ce, il est l'heure pour moi d'aller manger et de retourner au travail ! #teamfitcats #jujufitcats
