Product review for Fitness Competitions Naturally: Get The Body You Want Without Fat Burners, Caffeine Pills, Diuretics or Steroids! (Naturopathically Fit) (Volume 1)
Everyone is unique. Your fitness training should be designed to suit your body and your beliefs. You can get yourself in prime condition doing it all naturally. This book lets you see what goes on behind the scenes while training and competing, what you need and what it takes to step out on that stage. At one time, the author thought that kind of body excellence was only a dream. With encouragement and support from family and friends she threw herself into the fitness competition world. For Dr. Katelyn, it was important for her to walk her talk and commit to training naturally. Here she shares her combined professional expertise and personal experience, relating what she went through and what she learned along the way. The varying understanding of the term "natural" affects the training and recovery processes and she spells out those differences. In the first part of the book, she covers what you need to know: the costs, what the judges look for, how long you can expect the training to take, the importance of posing instruction, registration when you get there, even bikini specifics and where to get what you need. Then she takes her readers through such issues as nutrition and food preparation, body image, the spray tan, and shows the importance of having the support of family or friends. You get first-hand tips and tricks for dealing with training challenges and also get a glimpse of havoc carbohydrate deprivation wreaks on your mind. With a combination of prose and journal entries, Dr. Katelyn's insights and knowledge come off the page as if you were right there beside her. Share her setbacks and triumphs through this exciting journey whether it is for a fitness competition, or for getting your body into its best shape yet.
