2015 Figure Australia Open Short Class Champion Elise Gough may be young but gives extremely wise advice.

The 19-year-old says, "My advice for anyone starting out is not to rush into competing and to take the time to develop both your physique and metabolism for a show to ensure you maintain your health and wellbeing throughout. Find a coach who know's what their doing and take an evidence backed approach to your competition prep. Once you decide to compete, ENJOY THE PROCESS - because it will be over before you know it."
