We know we are little bit behind but we are SUPER excited to announce our Member of the Month for February to Shelley Carney!
Shelley is no stranger to being the member of the month but this time for her valiant efforts and determination to compete in her first bikini competition! We had talked about it in great lengths over the last year and in fact we were going to do this together last year (but someone got pregnant instead!).
Shelley was able to place in 2 of the 3 classes she entered and had some tough competition on stage. Everyone puts so much hard work into themselves it’s hard to put a placing on someone. There are several different categories for the competition; bikini, figure, physique and bodybuilding. Each category requiring a ton of work and dedication. Bikini has become more popular over the last several years, although my personal preference is figure. Either way, it can take several years to build the physique you want to showcase on stage.
During Shelley’s journey she has lost an overall 6.17% body fat. She’s lost 4.4 pounds which can be discouraging when you’re only paying attention to the number on the scale. However, when you look at the breakdown, she’s actually lost 9.24 pounds of fat mass and gained 4.84 pounds of lean body mass!
She had no problems telling you about her “love” for zucchini and ProTan but she made a huge sacrifice and commitment to compete and did an amazing job!
