In November of 2014, Lorena got her first taste of competition, and she was hooked. Even though she did not place well, something grabbed her about the excitement of standing before the world, wearing nothing but a competition bikini to show off the physique she had worked hard to build. She knew that she had found her passion and vowed to do whatever it would take to reach her full potential and earn the elusive pro card.
This first time on stage was the culmination of intense work on her nutrition and her training. Unfortunately, this made her performance more disappointing because she did not get the results she wanted.
After that competition, she was determined to work harder, and she pushed herself to be in the best condition of her life for the next competition. Disappointingly, the next competition brought another subpar finish. Subsequent competitions would yield the same unsatisfactory results.
She became frustrated because she believed that she was doing everything in her power to get better. But she continued to be stranded on the same mediocre plateau.
One glaring example of a problem that Lorena did not know was holding her back was the Bikini Competition Suit she competed in. The suit did not fit her in a way that highlighted her best features. She was unaware of how this radiated a perception of her that was undermining her success.
She was losing her motivation and felt her dream of being competitive on the professional level slipping away. Something had to change.
She thought that she was doing everything she could to prepare and did not know what was holding her back.
Was it her competition suit? Her posing? What was in the secret sauce of success that the top competitors had found?
After five months of trying to do everything on her own and not getting the results she wanted she decided to seek help. When she was feeling down one day, skimming through Facebook for answers and inspiration, she came across one of Shawn’s stage presence training videos.
While watching the first video, Lorena was intrigued as Shawn’s unique expertise was evident. After viewing another video, she was hooked and continued to watch and find ways to improve.
She rode this new wave of inspiration to a national qualifying competition. While backstage at the competition Lorena recognized Shawn working with one of her “Cuties” and decided that she had to introduce herself to the woman who had inspired her.
Lorena could not help but tell Shawn how she was “blown away” by everything that she had learned by watching Shawn’s videos and the buzz about Shawn around the industry. Lorena asked if she could work with Shawn on the spot….

Although Lorena was working hard to nail down her nutrition, training, and do what she thought was everything she could do to compete at the highest level, she could not get over the hump.
The truth is that she needed someone with Shawn’s unique expertise to detect her weaknesses and teach her the nuances of what it takes to become an elite competitor.
Shawn agreed to take Lorena on, and the transformation was fast. They started with a detailed analysis of Lorena’s career, emphasizing such key points as fitness and competition strategy.
After some careful analysis, Shawn began to work on the aspects of Lorena’s game that were holding her back. Early on in the process Lorena reflected: “Boy, was I clueless about everything that goes into preparing for a competition!”
Rather than be embarrassed by her lack of knowledge on what it takes to compete at the highest levels, she was heartened to know how much she could improve.
She came to understand that her goals were attainable if she were to follow the carefully laid our path Shawn had prepared, which was tailored to her specific needs and abilities. Shawn was able to get down to the nitty-gritty and work on the little things that translate into victory.
Shawn began to fix everything, down to the minute details. When it came to presentation, the first order of business was to find a competition suit that fit Lorena in order to perfectly show off the physique that Lorena had trained so hard to develop.
Instead of wearing a suit that she would question, she needed a suit that would make a splash on stage; she received a fully encrusted couture competition suit designed by Shawn. The results were immediate. Other competitors began complimenting Lorena on her suit and asking where they could score one.
Even a few judges pulled her aside to tell her how perfectly the suit complimented her beautifully sculpted physique.
Lorena came to see this new suit as a metaphor for their relationship; Shawn helping to hone all of her talents, so they were optimally displayed before the world. The competition suit was so impressive that Lorena continues to use it on the national level and has even added a new one to her line-up of original Shawn Couture Cuties suits.
After fixing the issues with her suit, Shawn set to work to fine-tune every part of her stage game from her hairstyle right down to the makeup she wore.
Shawn gave her a challenging new posing routine and worked every detail of it with Lorena until it was flawless. Lorena began to feel completely at ease while competing, a stark difference from the past where she had times when she felt insecure.
For this newfound confidence, she felt compelled to compliment her stage presence coach and suit designer because as she came to realize: “Shawn is a genius when it comes to overall stage presentation.”
Ever since working with Shawn, Lorena has had a stronger performance in every single competition. This is even more impressive when one considers that Lorena had not competed at the national level until hiring Shawn.
As she continues to work with Shawn, she has received better and better feedback from the judges and has even received attention from top supplement companies such as Labrada Nutrition.
Lorena has never forgotten Shawn’s golden rule of success that she received on day one: “the goal is bringing a better package every time you step on stage.” That is exactly what Lorena has done since she began with Shawn’s Couture Cuties.
Lorena has made many important discoveries on her journey to becoming a successful competitor at the national level.
She has come to understand that there are many variables that separate the novice regional competitor from the national elite.
One of the most important lessons was: “Competing is not only being at your best physically, but you also have to be your best mentally.”
Shawn was able to work to weave together mind and body in the most effective way to produce amazing results. “The results and positive outcome have been obvious since I started working with her, and I will continue to do so in the future,” Lorena reflects. This is why she’s “always proud to say that I’m a Shawn’s Couture Cutie!”
