Preparing to compete in a physique competition is the pinnacle of physical development. The sport/art has grown in popularity in recent years, due to the creation of new divisions. This has brought a lot of excitement and a lot of new faces.
Preparing for a competition, no matter the division, requires a lot of hard work and dedication. The decision to compete is a big one and many things need to be considered.
The competitive world we live in has led many people to sacrifice nearly everything in an effort to win a trophy. While this sport is demanding and requires some sacrifice in time and energy, certain things should NOT be up for debate.
I've competed in over 40 shows and coached thousands of others to the stage. If experience has taught me anything, it's that health should never be compromised just to win a trophy.
I put an emphasis on education - learning about nutrition, developing good habits, and avoiding heavy restriction.
This leads to a healthy post-show recovery and results you can keep, instead of looking good for one day.
We are passionate about this sport and want to share that with others. We want to show everyone that you can be incredibly successful in this sport and still have a great relationship with food, keep your results, and NOT have any detrimental long-term effects.
