At the direction of coach Tamara Knight, this dedicated group of ladies have been in the gym 5 or 6 days a week, doing empty stomach cardio virtually every morning, and some have been doing evening cardio as well. Add that to the crazy dieting that these competitors do. The plain chicken. Cod. Egg whites. Broccoli. Some haven't had a cheat meal in 8 weeks! All to ROCK the stage for about five minutes. But if you ask them is it worth it? Hell f'n yes it is!
First thing every Sunday morning is posing practice at Powerhouse FX gym in Aldergrove. The girls are put through their paces by Grace Bukowsky, who is also a personal trainer, and bikini athlete.
Bikini is a fun category to watch because of the glitz and glam involved, as opposed to having it all be about muscles. Presentation is important. How your suit looks, how your hair and makeup looks, and your stage presence are all very important. The two piece suits are crazy to see - rhinestones, bling, glitter, sparkle... the more the merrier.
The competition is in Kelowna on Saturday May 7, 2016 at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Pre-judging is at 9am, and the evening show is at 6pm. Tickets on sale HERE!
