Thinking about competing in a Bikini Competition?
Well take your time && give it some serious thought before you come to a conclusion.
Competing takes Commitment.
So here is what you shoulder consider…
#1 SOCIAL LIFE Competing means you will be dedicating about 12 weeks of your life to a strict diet, training, and lifestyle schedule. This essentially means that if you go out to a restaurant or a bar, you’ll have to have the will power to say “no” to unhealthy treats and calorie-filled beverages.
#2 TIME Competing means you will be spending more time in the gym, more time prepping your meals, and more time practicing your posing. This means that you will have less free time to hangout & relax.
#3 MONEY Competing means you will be spending more money than usual. Paying for your supplements, gym membership, bikini, heels, jewelry, tanning, contest registration, photography, hair, makeup etc. So make sure you have at least $600 saved up. This is doing things cheaply and on your own. If you hire a coach your cost will be double or even triple that. Unless of course you work with us. Our goal from day one has been to keep things affordable. So our 12 week 1-on-1 nutrition and training program is just $24.99. Learn more HERE.
#4 MENTAL Competing means you will be dropping your body fat significantly. You’ll get down to about 10-12% body fat most likely. So you have to be prepared to gain that back. Of course you’ll feel great being lean and competition ready! However, it is not realistic to maintain that. So you have to accept the fact that you will gain some body fat back once the show is over. You can do Reverse Dieting to try and avoid a sudden weight gain. However, make sure you are mentally prepared to accept this and be happy with your post-competition body. I teach you the best ways to reverse diet in my 12 week program HERE.
#5 LOSING Competing in bikini competitions, especially the NPC division, means you will be judged against tons of other girls. This sport is growing and growing. In my contest, there were 14 girls in my class. Closer to 30 in other classes. So it is not easy. Yes, dream big. However set realistic goals for yourself. Realize that you succeeded even if you don’t place because you achieved your best body possible.
#6 PRIVACY Competing in a competition can be very public. You’ll be on stage in an itty bitty swimsuit with bright lights shining on you. A large crowd will be watching you. Be ready to show your confidence because competing with stage fright is a recipe for disaster. Realize that many people will be watching you. So if you are afraid of that, maybe this sport isn’t for you. In addition, lots of pictures are usually taken. If you sign the waiver to have your pictures taken professionally, they will be posted online (so the world could see them if wanted). Therefore, don’t expect it to be a secret that you have competed.
#7 DRUGS Competing in bodybuilding competitions is a very competitive sport. So many competitors are willing to do whatever it takes. This means that some people you compete against may or may not have an edge up on you due to steroid or other illegal supplements. So stay true to yourself and stay natural.
