Hi, what's the meaning of" My whole body was tensed towards them"?

I kept handing out my coupons at the top of the escalator, like an automaton whose movements couldn’t be stopped by anything. I was having trouble breathing. My whole body was tensed towards them. I was waiting for them to go, without looking at them. I wanted them all to leave, to disappear.

    This much of the sentence makes sense: "My whole body was tensed."

    "to them" doesn't make sense.
