The search for a coach begins

I've decided I need help with this competition. I have been doing research but haven't been able to find much useful information online. Therefore I am on the market for a coach. I just want to have someone tell me where I should be focusing on for my training, show me how to walk/pose on stage and help me with outfits/jewelry selection. The problem is I don't want to go broke because of this.

I've thought about hiring someone locally to make my suit for me out of material that I pick out but I have no idea how much that would cost. I've also thought about what colours, accessories, etc would work best for me. I think I want to stay true to who I am and be a little bit different on stage. I'm not much of a glam kind of girl so all of the sparkles, sequins, jewels, and stuff don't really suit me. I'm thinking instead of big blingy bracelets I might wear mala beads. And instead of wearing big, sparkly earrings I might wear some kind of feather earring. Or put feathers in my hair. Maybe a tie dye suit would really pop on stage? These are all things I want to talk to a coach about.

So if anyone knows someone that has competed before in the Halifax area please let me know as I'd love to ask them to be my coach.

On a training note I started doing German volume training (GVT) the other day. It's the basic build that a lot of body builders use of 10 sets of 10 reps. From the research I've done so far it seems to be the best way to put on muscle mass in a short period of time. I feel like I need to work a bit more on my glute muscles and on my upper body muscles. So I'll be doing this training regimen for the next few weeks and then with the guidance of a coach hopefully go into my burn/cut phase after Christmas. Starting to definitely feel the time crunch.....

  1. Wow Christine, this is super cool! You mention a time crunch - when does the competition begin.

    While it's not something I'd want to do, I hope you do keep updating on your progress, because I would love to hear about it from someone sort of following the same focus as I've taken in my life.

    Best of luck!!
