It was an amazing show last night! All of the girls were beautiful; the IFBB Pro Bikini ladies were spectacular! And with over 200 athletes in total, it was a busy night of fit, toned ladies!
I’m so proud of my girls who competed this weekend, Glo Lovidice, who placed 4th in the open “A” class, and Debbra Young, congrats for winning the Bikini “A” class with style, sass and a sexy stage presence! Go lovely ladies!
Congratulations, beautiful ladies!
Not only did my dear “lil sis’”, Khay, do great at the Arnold Classic earlier this month, but I came home San Diego to support several of my girls as they prepared to compete at Jon Lindsay’s NPC San Diego Championships last weekend, and just yesterday, to strut their stuff again at the NPC / IFBB MuscleContest Championships in Culver City.
Both shows had a huge turnout of Figure and Bikini competitors, and the MuscleContest show even had an IFBB Pro Bikini competition – and we welcomed back to the stage the beautiful Mary Jo Cooke, who looked amazing in her first Bikini competition! Go MJ!
I am so proud of all my girls, who have worked so hard, cardio-ing, dieting, training, to shape their bodies into fit and lean, tight and toned athletes with prize-winning physiques!
For the San Diego show, our extended family included Gloria Lovidice (1st open “A”), Stephanie Perkins (1st bikini “A”), Melanie Nakaji (4th open “A”), Kristi Krasja (2nd open “C”). Special congrats to Leslie, Katrina, May, who attended my clinic and looked amazing! And ultra special congrats to Tracy Rogers, who is an inspirational athlete in our gym and who dialed in her “walk around” physique in less than a week to steal 2nd place in her class! and my sis-in-law, Paulina, who did her first west coast show at the San Diego, and took 4th in her class!
More photos coming next from the MuscleContest Championships last night!
Thank you everyone who attended my first Clinic of 2011! It was an amazing turnout, with over 20 girls gathering to learn more about the real art of posing and presenting the physique with style, elegance and polish.
Special thank you to Sabrina Gibson-Taylor for assisting with the girls – we had a tremendous turn out of both Bikini and Figure competitors, getting ready for the upcoming NPC shows here in Southern California. We reviewed mandatory posing, model poses, the “sexy-strong” swagger in those heels, hair, suits, tanning and all! Thanks to all who attended – see you in a few weeks at the NPC San Diego, and beyond!
Check out my latest video – its so much fun training with people that have the same work ethic as I have…we all share the same passion for hard work in the gym…we train…cardio…and diet together! I never feel alone! Coz I know on my left and my right, people are going through the same pain! lol!
Enjoy! And get under that squat bar!
It’s been a busy few weeks – Khay and I had an amazing photo shoot with Chaz a few weeks ago, and then we travelled to Columbus to work the Arnold Expo for MAN Sports last weekend – and what a busy weekend it was!
I’m so proud of my little “sister” who really pulled it together after her bout with pneumonia only 6 weeks ago. She worked very hard and got her body into her best shape ever – placing 2nd in the very competitive Arnold Amateur Bikini competition. Go Khay!
I had so much fun meeting fans and friends, signing autographs and taking pictures! It was an amazing weekend, but it flew by in the blink of an eye. Thank you to my sponsor, MAN Sports, and thanks to everyone who came by to say hello!
Now, back from the busy weekend, it seems I haven’t missed a beat. I’m back at work, training several of my girls for the upcoming shows, and they’re all looking so good! It’s been a great start to the 2011 season, and this year promises to be even better! Stay tuned for more details about my own training too – I’ve started my prep for the Pro California, in just 11 weeks!
***and don’t forget, my first Art of Figure posing and presentation clinic is THIS WEEKEND! 10am-1pm, World Gym, San Diego – please email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up or for more info!
See you all very soon!
