In This Podcast
The Work Smart, Stress Less episodes will be popping into your podcast feed on a regular basis to bring you amazing conversations with our resident Fitness Lifestyle Guru Karey Northington.
In this episode we talk all about the real costs associated with competing in a Bikini Competition.
The Non-Negotiable Stuff
- League Membership (this is NOT show registration)
- Show Registration - There can be a penalty fee if you sign up last minute. Also, if you plan on doing multiple classes there is also a fee for this.
- Your Tan
- Shoes (If you're in a league that requires the clear heels)
- Suit - You can borrow one to avoid this cost... or RENT with us to save a few bucks.
The Things Amanda & Karey Say SHOULD Be On Your List
- Makeup - yes, you can do it yourself. BUT, if you haven't before... leave it to a professional who HAS SHOW EXPERIENCE!
- Jewelry - but no need to go expensive
- Hair Styling - I (Amanda) always do my own, but I wear it on stage how I wear it in daily life.
- Travel & Show Day Bag - get a roller bag! You don't want to sling anything over your arms with that tan.
- Coach - Training / Nutrition / Posing. Also, take into consideration that you may have to extend your prep if you're not ready (which is FINE, but comes with some additional coaching costs!)
The "Fun" Stuff
- Show day video and photos - believe, you'll want them. And if you compete in somewhere where James Allen is the photographer, mention AmandaLouise and you'll get a discount on the A or B packages!
- Show Tickets for Friends / Family - ugh. They can be PRICEY!
- Team Swag - AmandaLouise will be offering back stage outfits soon, WOOT WOOT!
