Check out my latest article on IronManMagazine.com. If you are interested in competing I a fitness competition I share how to get started and the whole process:
Have you cruised through the pages of Iron Man Magazine, saw the photographs of the fitness competitors, and imagined yourself on that stage? The music is playing, the warm lights are shining down on your tanned body, and the audience applauds when you hit that pose just right. Thousands of men and women at all levels of fitness do compete each year to challenge themselves and motivate others. There is something about having a definitive date and knowing that you will be on stage showing off what you got in front of experienced judges that enables one to push their physical limits. Competing is not for everyone. It requires extreme discipline, high work ethic, consistency, and pain tolerance. Now, I’m not try to scare you off, but it’s not easy. Hats off to anyone who does step on that stage. It’s quite the accomplishment. This is a guide for those who are thinking about competing, but have no idea where to start.
Don’t Wait Forever: Yes, to be in a fitness competition you have to be fit. But the term ‘fit’ is relative. Nobody who competes is never perfect. Don’t hold off competing until you feel you have the perfect physique because you never will. Our bodies will always be a work in progress. If you are far from being in shape it might take a year or two to get stage ready, but go for it. Don’t be a talker be a doer.
