About This Site
The primary aim of this site is to be an useful resource for any females wanting to compete in figure competitions in the UK. On this site you will find information on federations, tips for competing, on-plan recipes, and links to useful online resources. In addition the site also aims to provide details to people, in general, who are wishing to embark on a fitness routine and/or wanting to start a healthy eating plan. The site is presented on the home page as a blog which you can read from start to finish, but all the posts are also linked into the appropriate sections listed at the top.
I am a 30 year old female, who has been lifting weights since 2008. A self pronounced computer geek who due to my line of work spends too much time sitting on her butt. I have recently had my first child (Feb 2012) and after successfully competing in a figure competition in April 2011 I have decided I want to get back into shape for another competition in the near future.
This site is a cumulation of the research I have undertaken over the last 5 years and some of the information given is based on my own opinions. I would like to encourage comments and feedback, so please feel free to speak your mind about anything on the site and inform me of anything you feel may be missing, or likewise anything you may feel is out of place.
The small print: I must state that I have no qualifications in health or fitness (yet) and all my information comes from trial and error on myself (and my lovely patient friends and family ) and research on fitness sites.
