Ms. Bikini Universe Pro Alex Paine shares "Competing as a Women's Physique athlete has been my dream since I started my competition journey almost 10 years ago and I finally stepped on stage this past April! Getting to this point required taking over a year off from competingx required a completely different style of training, and a whole different mentality in the gym....and I absolutely loved it! Competing in figure and physique was actually pretty different from my previous competitions as a Ms. Bikini Pro competitor. It felt almost sureal the first time I stepped on stage; the posing was so much different from that if bikini and model, but i felt like I was in my element! I am so grateful to be part of an organization that allows for these cross overs as it has truly allowed me to grow as an athlete!"
