What My First Competition Bikini Show Taught Me
Hello my Beautiful Ladies … Vicky Ross Fit together with JemmababsFit happy to share with you the most in-depth KEY LESSONS that First Competition Bikini Show had taught Jemma & can teach you as well. Especially if you are a 1st time bikini competitor. To most people, a bikini or figure competition probably looks like a muscular version of a beauty pageant contest. But, honestly, it is so much more! Everyone who had competed before & had walked that path of prepping for “fitness competition” can relate and feel what I am meaning by ”fitness competition is so much more”.
So here are 5 Key Lessons that any first competition bikini competitors can, most likely, relate to:
1. YOU NEED A VISION
WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE?! Where do you see yourself going? If you don’t have a goal, you won’t understand the prep process!
Plan who you want to be and BECOME HER!
2.YOUR HABITS WILL MAKE or BREAK YOU
Preparation is everything. If you slip from your meal plan when no one is looking, if you sneak some treats and some drinks because your coach is remote, if you don’t practice posing, ALL of those habits will come back and bite you. Practice perfection !
3. COACHING IS THE KEY
If you don’t connect with your coach, you won’t connect with your prep. It’s that simple. Every coach does things differently and every athlete needs to be coached differently. Finding the right coach is challenging and sometimes you’ll have to go through a few to find the right match. Keep in mind: coaches create rules or allow freedoms that others don’t, create your meal plan based off of their coaching preferences, they peak you (or forget to) differently, and they ENCOURAGE or scold you according to their personalities.
4. WOMEN ACTUALLY SUPPORT OTHER WOMEN
Sure there can be catty moments when you’re surrounded by 50 women in skimpy bathing suits… but there is SO MUCH LOVE AND COMMUNITY at shows, it’s surreal!
5. 𝐈 𝐋𝐎𝐕𝐄 THE THRILL OF BEING ON STAGE AND WILL 100% KEEP COMPETING
There’s nothing like the adrenaline rush of being on stage. I CANT WAIT to feel that again in 2020.
