I could NOT be prouder of these lades. 5 of them are getting up on stage tomorrow to celebrate many months of hard work, training, discipline, emotional rollar-coasters and a very strict diet. Competing is extremely challenging both physically and mentally. Whatever happens tomorrow is going to be a celebration…. they all look amazing and have trained together as a team to accomplish their personal goals. SO SO proud of them!! Good luck tomorrow BEAUTIFUL ladies.
Unless you have competed before, you do not have any idea of what it takes to prepare for a figure, physique or bikini show. I think it is the ultimate of goals for any women who aspires to better herself. The amount of mental strength and discipline it takes is so hard that 50% of all women who “think” they want to do a show, end of quitting after 3 weeks. Although it is one of the hardest to train for, it is also the most rewarding.
I remember when I competed… (and I did for 6 years) every show I would say “this will be my last”. But then, it hooks you in. I remember feeling so empowered and I loved that I was inspiring other women. I competed for only 2 reason… 1) I wanted to try it and LEARN……. 2) See what I could to with my physique by totally being committed. The goal, the drive to get on that stage to say .. “i did it”, is what kept me going.
I didn’t care if i placed or not, I didn’t care what people or friends thought of me. I didn’t care that other girls would be mean spirited towards me because they were jealous of my desire to compete. IT fueled me…. it also really made me realize that many woman have so many insecurities, they were hurting and mad at themselves for not being able to commit to a goal. THIS IS WHAT LEAD ME TO HELP WOMEN!! I hated seeing women hurting. So after my 6 years of competing… i decided to help women to feel better about themselves. Get healthy and help them to GET THEIR SEXY BACK!!!!
Now I get to help 1000’s of women create a life of health. Yes, i do train some who want to compete in shows, but the majority of my clients are ones that want to feel better, look better and get healthy so they can live life full of passion, energy and Love. – Teri Dale
