Are you ready for REAL contest prep coaching?

UPDATE: We have made some structural adjustments/improvements and are now able to take on non-competitors and those a bit further away from being stage-ready!  Click here to inquire if interested. As many of you probably know, several months ago I made the move to working STRICTLY with figure and bikini competitors, specifically those within striking […]

Bikini Competition Dieting: Building your Metabolism

I’ve decided to put together a basic, easy to follow bikini competition dieting guide for girls looking to get the most out of their diets, and overall training program.  I can’t possibly explain exactly what I do, since its different for every client, but there are some commonalities amongst many of the programs I put […]

Jess Sicoly Turns Pro after 8 weeks with NLPT!

Jess and I began working together about 8 weeks prior to back to back shows (OPA Winston Invitational, Coburg, Ontario, October 20 2012 & Fitness STAR Model Search World Championships, Toronto Ontario, Oct 21 2012).  She had previously competed in Figure (placed 2nd and 4th) in 2009 and Athletic Fitness Model Division (2nd place) in […]

Figure and Bikini Contest Prep Guide to Gas and Bloating

Just because its “clean” when you eat it doesn’t mean it’s going to be clean coming out the other end. That’s what I should have named this article. But seriously, it’s not uncommon when suddenly moving from the typical American diet to the average bikini contest prep diet to experience some gas/bloating. I think some […]

Refeeds for Figure and Bikini Prep?

See if this scenario sounds familiar: Your figure or bikini coach has had you dieting pretty hard and nonstop for weeks.  You made some good progress at first, strength/performance in the gym was okay for a while, energy throughout the day wasn’t too terrible all things considered, and you still liked asparagus.  Then as the […]

5 Keys to Bikini Competition Glutes

When I say bikini competition glutes…I mean the kind that deserve to win, not the loose, jiggly ones I see scoring trophies at amateur level competitions these days.  Do you want glutes that look tight while you’re walking onstage or do you want to jiggle around up there until you’re fully flexed?  Because I’m still […]

Carb Cycling for Bikini and Figure Competitors Part 3: Setting up a Carb Cycle

In this final installment, I’m going to take you through the steps of setting up a carb cycle for figure or bikini competition.  As mentioned in Part 2, I don’t really see the point in carb cycling much sooner than about 6 weeks or so out from a contest, although I have occasionally used it […]

Jennifer Bock Wins Miss Swimsuit USA International!

I’m very proud to announce our latest Next Level success story!  Jennifer Bock was just crowned Miss Swimsuit USA International, beating out 55 other high level contestants from all over the world!  We’re working on an interview which we hope to have up this week, but I thought I’d post a few photos from her […]

Carb Cycling for Bikini Competitors Part 2

Okay I think I’m probably about 2-3 weeks late writing part 2 of Carb Cycling for Bikini Competitors, but I re-checked and google still has little to offer on the subject.  Not that its google’s fault.  I love google. So I realized after re-reading part 1 that I never really bothered to explain what Carb […]

Carb Cycling for Bikini Competitors: Part 1

Okay, looks like I’m finally fired up enough about something that I may have to write my first blog post in 5 months.  Every once in a while I like to pretend I’m a bikini competitor (this isn’t going where you think it is…get your head out of the gutter) looking for relevant contest prep […]
