O.M.G. what did I do

You signed up for that seminar/camp/clinic and you’ve NEVER been to one.  You can’t believe you did it and now you can’t change your mind, you’re already at the place where it will be held.  You also want to shoot the person that talked you into it but they’re not there yet, so you wait by yourself trying to overcome that crazy nervous feeling. What’s the big deal anyway?  Why are these camps/clinics necessary?  What’s so hard about walking on stage in a 2 piece barely there bikini accompanied by a pair of 5″ heels??  The big deal is this:  it takes WORK to walk in heels while in a barely there competition bikini (there is a huge difference between your pool side suit and competition suit) in front of a huge room full of people that you might only know 5 people in a room full of people, oh and then look completely natural doing it.  BUT it can be done, which is why attending a camp or clinic is so important and should be included on your to do list before stepping on stage.

Meeting like minded people while on this journey is one of the best ways to experience it! Every camp we meet more and more amazing women!

There are so many camps/clinics available and it’s always good to attend as many as you can so you can learn as much as you can.  The more information you have, the more experiences you have (good or bad), the better the decision to compete will be.  Most organizations have camps/clinics to teach you basic posing and answer questions you might have about competing.  This past weekend our Coaches were part of the Musclemania Texas camp at Embody Fitness Center in Missouri City and we had the pleasure of meeting and working with so many amazing people.  Fitness brings together people from different walks of life but we all have one really awesome component in common:  love of working out. A lot of people that come out to the camps have never competed before, but we do see alums come back to camp because they want to learn more or add to what they already know.  You never work with just one coach, you always end up working with all of the coaches by the end of the camp series.  If you’ve never worked with us, this is what you can expect when you do:

  • we will make you laugh, bc when learning to pose there is lots to laugh about. Plus you move better when you are not as stiff 🙂
  • we will work with your natural way of movement and incorporate that into your posing
  • show you basic poses first, work with you to perfect then, then move onto something a bit more challenging yet fun
  • have you work on transition movements so the timing of your poses look polished
  • incorporate the walk into your routine so you don’t look like your ‘walking to the car’ rather ‘strutting on stage’
  • then we begin putting your routine together
  • helping you find a suit designer that’s a good fit for you based on your budget and style
  • help you save money on the items that can cost a competitor a lot through our strong network of vendors and fabulous former clients
  • give you the support you need by answering your questions as quick as we can!
  • be HONEST with you, we wouldn’t want anyone yanking our chain either

What you will not expect when you work with us:

  • cookie cutter posing and routines

See how many cool things you get when you work with us?  There’s a lot more but better to experience it than read about it eh?  By the time you reach the end of the fitness journey, you’ve met so many great people, created so many more friendships, and will look back and tell yourself  “I can’t believe I almost didn’t come to these camps!”.

Contact us if you have any questions, we would love to be part of your fitness journey this year!

The end of the journey and many friendships later. We are still in touch with many of these ladies who we adore and love to pieces!!!

2016 POSING CAMP FOR ALL

Winners practice till they get it right, CHAMPIONS practice till they can’t get it wrong

~ unknown

My first official blog entry for 2016 and it’s almost February.  I know, I know what a slacker but really, my coaches and I have unbelieveably busy.  We met last weekend and went over some new ideas to help our clients present better on stage as wells as post interesting blogs at least once a month.  One of our biggest projects we are involved with is this posing camp coming up on Feb 6, 2016 (check out the flyer for deets).  If you are thinking about competing, plan on competing, or just want to see what it’s like to be in a room full of fitness competitors learning to improve their craft of posing you should come and join in.  While I would like to say there’s plenty of fluff, bells, and whistles, there isn’t.  It’s a lot of hard work and we are making everyone work until their (and ours) feet hurt.  Two hours may seem like a long camp but when you are learning, practicing, and being drilled over and over, time flies.  The typical posing attire most women wear is:  tank top or cami workout top, capri pants or shorts, and 5″ heels if you do not have competition heels yet.  LOCATION OF CAMP: EMBODY FITNESS CENTER, 4799 LEXINGTON BLVD MISSOURI CITY TX 77459.

Everyone is welcome. A great coach can teach ANYONE!

This is a great competition to consider, especially if this is your first time competing

So many women choose a really big venue to compete in and not know how big it is until the day of the show.  It can very overwhelming if it’s your first time stepping on stage.  Don’t let the name of this show fool you, the All Forces show is open to both All Forces (active and retired) and civilians.  The All Forces competitors and civilian competitors do not compete against each other, they will remain in their respective category.  There are so many benefits to a smaller show:  1) competitors get more stage time,  2) better flow of show,  3)  you, your family, and your friends aren’t stuck there all night only to watch you for 10 seconds on stage, and 4) the judges can give you real feedback because they will remember you.

Part of the proceeds will go to local fire, police, and military.  Go to www.musclemania.com, www.fitnessuniverse.com, or www.modeluniverse.com to find out more about  these categories: Men’s & Women’s Fitness, Figure, Bikini, Men’s & Women’s Physique, Male & Female Model, Bodybuilding.

All Forces show, open to both All Forces and civilians
