Ms. Bikini America Champion Lesly Palicia started an Instagram page where she will be documenting her journey to her pro debut in Fitness Asia show in Singapore this December. Lesly shares "I started up a new Instagram page (@gyozafitgirls) with a friend to help inspire and empower women around the world to go for their goals whether that be in Fitness, careers, travel, or anything really! We also touch on the importance of self love and confidence because without those you just aren’t fully you! Love yourself and let you radiance shine!"
Ms. Bikini Pro Julie athlète ProMusclemania shares, "Pay special attention to this essential fact: "impermanence" allows us to discover ourselves by taking new paths ...
As we all know, the most effective way to evolve internally is first to self-evaluate ourselves daily and not to leave aside the parts of ourselves that we do not want to face. Then do regular checkups to be able to adjust our behavior, our ways of thinking and our actions to our values."

2015 Australia Figure Medium Class Runner Up Alexandra Kierdorf-Robinson says"I may not be the fastest, I’m hardly the strongest and I’m definitely not the biggest. But I’ll be sweating blood before I stop.
The GRIT is a characteristic I try to pass on to my clients. Especially if someone is new to training. When we’re new to the feeling of physical exhaustion, training can be quite daunting and maybe even a little bit scary... And it takes a while to get used to the concept that discomfort, shortness of breath, pressure and even a touch of panic can be a GOOD thing 😃
However, once we’re over this initial hurdle, intensity is key. How many calories you burn and what results you achieve in a session is completely dependant on your intensity. Make sure you always go to that place wayyyyy outside the comfort zone...
Because in the world of creating a PHYSICAL CHANGE 👉
Quitters don’t win - and winners don’t quit 👊"

HERE I AM! Proof that anyone can change their life and reach their goals!"
