2016 Fitness Universe Open Champion Chellana D Kwas shares, "Competition is not just about showing up. It’s about bringing your best to the stage- an accumulation of months of hard work, sacrifice, and strong focus! I want to earn it. I greatly respect all the talent that comes to the stage and know that my current goals will take time. Through my journey, I’ve gained a true appreciation of the time (the years) it takes to develop your physique and compete at the pro level. I’m looking forward to working hard in the gym, living the lifestyle, and returning to the stage next year for my Pro debut! I’m wishing all of my fellow competitors an amazing season!! Celebrate your hard work and enjoy every single sweaty, tanned up, blinged out moment!!"
