[…] after I began working with her, I began to see how in order to win, every single detail mattered.”
Realizing that stage competition involves more attention to detail and training than she initially thought, Christie enlisted Shawn’s expertise and aid. So how did Shawn help Christie go from an amateur to winning her pro card in her first competition?
Shawn understands that every detail counts, and she takes them all into account. From counting macros (in elite competition prep, every carb counts) to posing, choosing the best suit and day-of-competition preparations, Shawn knows what it takes to help her athletes succeed, and she teaches them that while hard work is necessary, attention to detail is really the key to success – on and off the stage.
Developing the Confidence to Win
Just watching her body transform and reflect all of her hard work and positive choices was enough to significantly boost Christie’s self-confidence. However, she was still hesitant about competition. She felt great about her body and her fitness, but she didn’t feel like she could really command the stage and impress the judges.
To conquer her fears and gain the confidence she needed to be a competitive NPC Bikini athlete, Christie sought out Shawn’s help with posing and overall stage presence. The two met about twice a month in the time before Christie’s competition and worked on every detail. Plus, Shawn designed a dazzling couture bikini for Christie that was real icing on the cake for all of that hard work and attention to detail.
In the end, Christie got much more than stage direction. In her own words, she says, “Shawn showed me that success is only won and deserved when you have not only put in the time and the effort but when you pay attention to the details.” As a result, Christie has gained more poise and confidence in the rest of her life, as well as on stage.
A Step-by-Step Plan for Success
When Shawn works with athletes like Christie, she creates an action plan to give them the tools they need to not only compete with confidence but to really own the stage and wow the judges. She begins this process by working with you on your stage presence.
With proper stage presence, you can easily learn how to correctly and smoothly hit every NPC Bikini pose on cue, showing off your hard work and your incredible physique. Once you’ve mastered your stage presence, everything else really does fall into place, but that doesn’t mean that Shawn’s finished working with you yet.
Running up to Christie’s competition, Shawn spent more time coaching her to iron out any remaining rough spots in her routine. Then she performed a custom fitting for Christie’s bikini to ensure that it fit perfectly and would add a beautiful touch to a flawless performance.
The Results Speak for Themselves
Thanks to Shawn’s coaching, Christie not only competed in the 2015 Max Muscle Show, but she took home first place in two classes, as well as overall titles, winning her pro card in her first ever competition. Now she can’t wait to get on stage again and show the world all that Shawn’s taught her about NPC Bikini competition.
