The Toughest Part Being a Competitor

As the 2x Ms. Bikini America Pro Champion Natalia Castillo preparing for Fitness America Weekend in November. She shares, “The toughest part about being a Fitness Competitor is the mental strength that you have to have leading to the show: going to the gym twice a day, eating 6 times a day, drinking gallons of water and getting all the outfits ready... 😅BUT once it’s show time and you step on that stage, it’s party time 🎉 and all that hard work pays off 🏆I’m looking forward to bringing my best package yet to Vegas this year and celebrating my victory!”

Working with Weights

Figure Asia Champion Glady Leong shares, “I wanna lose weight and "tone" but I don't wanna build muscles.... contradicting but this sentence has been heard more than 10 times a week for trainers.... What helps women stay strong, burn calories, and build healthy bones? Strength training. ... Resistance training increases resting metabolism by about 7 percent and help minimize muscle loss as you get more calories burnt. Working with weights keeps your body working long after you’ve stopped lifting. This is the process commonly called “after-burn.” There is much talk in exercise circles about the body’s ability to continue burning calories after exercise, called “excess post-exercise oxygen consumption,” A study reports that the body takes between 15 minutes and 48 hours to return to a resting state after exercise. This means you can continue burning calories after you exercise.

Reduces risk of osteoporosis
-Because of hormonal changes that women experience as they get older, they naturally lose bone density, putting them at increased risk for developing osteoporosis. Routinely lifting weights slows bone deterioration and can help your bones grow stronger, help you maintain strength, and reduce your chance of developing or slows the effects of — osteoporosis.

Decreases injury risk
-When you build muscle, you help protect your joints from injury and increase your balance and coordination. This becomes increasingly important to help you maintain your independence as you age.

An NO you will NOT become muscular.... only shapey and stronger as females do not have 
testosterone and it's a lot harder for us to get masculine. Remember Weights Don't Make You BIG, Junk Food Does! ( From 5kg bicep curls to 14kg now😍 #milestone)”

Importance of Health

Ms. Bikini Universe Pro and Fitness Universe Pro Angela Gargano shares, “Today I finally am feeling normal again. Slept through a whole night without being in pain, ate some food, and feel like I can slowly start getting back to feeling like myself again. I also got a physical today and when they told I had lost 12 pounds since my surgery I was shocked. I haven’t been 114 since high-school. A healthy weight for me is normally around 126. All of this has been such an eye opener to me. An eye opener about how important our health is, and how much we take it for granted. I tend to always put “work” before my own health, but that’s no way to live. It’s time to find a healthy balance and sit back and re-evaluate it all. I love helping other achieve their health goals and now it’s time to get back on track with mine. I have so many things planned for the future and it’s time to find balance and stop being busy and start being productive.”
