What did you wish you knew before your first show?
Every competitor deserves a healthy journey to the stage that won't destroy their mental, physical or financial health. Prospective competitors and novice competitors need an honest insight into the competitor life.
My goal is to provide you with a deeper look into female competitors bodybuilding world, more specifically the bikini competitors world. But I’m going to need your help! We’re collecting stories from YOU for this future resource! If you have competed (or tried & failed) Id love to hear your story. Submissions are completely anonymous unless you choose otherwise.
By sharing your story you not only help future women, you also give other woman the permission to be seen & heard. I once heard someone say there are no new stories, so if you are living a post competition nightmare, sharing your story will help you and many others heal.
