If you are struggling to meet your fitness goals or need some added incentive why not
sign up for Natural Bikini Competitions? These competitions are sponsored by NANBF,
North American Natural Bodybuilding Federation, a foundation dedicated to promoting
drug tested body building shows in an effort to promote healthy and drug free
competition. This article is geared toward my USA friends, as NANBF, started in the
USA, and all their shows are held in the USA.
I am also a huge believer that Bikini athletes have absolutely NO need at all to take
any banned substances. The idea of a bikini athlete taking banned substances is
ridiculous and if their coaches are pushing this, they need their heads checked.
Having a goal to work towards, like participating in one of the Natural Bikini
Competitions, is a great way to make sure you stay motivated and reach the fitness
level you are aiming for. With the prospect of parading in your bikini, finding the
time to work out will be more of a priority, leading to better results and more
Although winning one of the Natural Bikini Competitions would be amazing, don’t expect
to do so the first time around. Competition is fierce, and many competitors go year
after year, but by putting yourself out there, and trying, you will find that you have
more drive and endurance and a higher fitness level. The fact that the competitions
require drug testing and no performance enhancing substances evens the playing field
and helps promote good health, not only muscular physiques.
In order to compete you will need to be an active member of the NANBF. Joining is
simple, and requires a $60.00 fee. It’s important that you make note of the substances
that are banned to make sure you are able to compete and avoid embarrassment.
Don’t be frightened by the term ‘body building’, the competitions don’t require any
specific level of muscularity. What is important is the you are toned, fit and have a
good symmetry and proportion. The most important thing is that you be the best version
of yourself that you can be, and stick to your fitness goals for optimal health.
Although joining a Bikini Competition might seem extreme, having a deadline like that
is invaluable! Having a goal at which to publicly show your results will help motivate
you to push yourself and get out of your comfort zone. This will lead to better results
quicker, and a healthy toned body.
Slacking off is easy, especially if you don’t have a personal trainer and don’t go to
the gym. But, even if you are training at home with the help of the home workout
equipment or programs, it is easy to stay motivated when you have a deadline. Getting
someone to work out with you is another way to hold yourself accountable and stick to
your fitness goals.
Signing up with a friend or partner is a great idea. Having work out partner to help
monitor your progress and to enter the competition with you can be a bonding and fun
experience. Getting fit together and reaching your goals together will be very
Natural Bikini Competitions are held all over the country. So, regardless of your area
or state, you should be able to find a competition near you that you can participate
in. Set your deadline and get fit now!
