I get quite a few inquiries about contest prep coaching. I have no problem explaining this to each girl who emails me, but I want to express my reasons here as well.
I have competed in ONE bikini competition in my life and I was under the guidance of Layne Norton for it. Sure, I learned how to ‘do’ peak week. How to train, how to manipulate my macros, water etc., but under no circumstances am I now an expert on contest preparation and feel that I can coach others through it.
Competing is a big deal and it should not be taken lightly. You are putting your body through a lot of stress. Even though I have competed and I have an idea of what it is like, I know I am not qualified to coach someone through one. It would be easy for me to say ‘Sure!’ to the inquiries and to take someone’s money (which unfortunately, a lot of coaches do), but that is not what I am about and that is not what I stand for.
Hi! I'm Carrie. I'm a student, online trainer and personal trainer, but enough of the boring stuff. I have an absolute passion for fitness, but it hasn't always been that way. I struggled with body image and tried my fair share of fad diets and short term fitness trends. The fitness world is confusing, overwhelming and down right silly at times. I am here to help girls focus on the important stuff and learn how to get a lean and toned body without endless hours of cardio and low calorie diets. Don't be shy and say "hi!" to me! I'm usually sweet, unless you steal a scoop of my protein powder ;)
