Are you financially ready?

Below, I'll break down what it cost me to compete in my first NPC Bikini Competition. Keep in mind that the costs are subjective to your decisions. The costs below reflect my choices.

The Nitty-Gritty:

16 weeks of Coaching w/ Team SoBoss: $750.00

Posing: $150.00~

Tan: $130.00 + $20 tip

Hair & Makeup: $300 + $50 tip

NPC Membership: $125.00

Entry Fees: $255.00

Think that's all? Not even close.

Gym Membership: $43.53 x 4 months = $174.12

Choosing to stay on track during a week long work trip meant having some meals delivered on site.

10x Icon Meals: $75.00

Chances are, your protein intake will go up. Will you choose to supplement with protein powder? Either way your grocery bills are effected in my opinion.

Will you choose to take a fat burner? BCAAs? Etc.

As your hunger increases, chances are so will your caffeine intake.

As my weight & waist dropped, so did my bank account. I needed pants & jeans that actually fit.

I was proud of my accomplishments & wanted to do photo-shoots to capture my hard work. Outfits, studio time, hair & makeup, photographers, etc.:

You may be mentally & physically ready to compete, but are you financially prepared? Sure, you can spend less than I did. But, you can easily spend more than me. Bodybuilding is a money hungry sport. It isn't cheap. So think twice before you decide to dive in to the world of competing.
