COST OF COMPETING IN BIKINI, WELLNESS FIGURE & BODYFITNESS COMPETITION - UK
How much it will cost you to compete those days in UK fitness competitions?
Here are some costs listed below but the list is not limited….
1, GYM MEMBERSHIP : from £25 to £160 per month.
2, GYM CLOTHES AND GYM ACCESSORIES : no one will tell you what to wear, but invest into good trainers £35 - £95 , waist belt £35 -£60, resistant bands £8-£10
3, SUPPLEMENTS: essential..cost can be very various anywhere from £50 up to hundreds of pounds, for basic like proteins, BCAA, fat burners, glutamine, creatine, multi-minerals, multivitamins etc.…all depends on your diet plan.
4, FOOD: £150 to £400 per month all depends on your diet
5, SCALES : one for food and one for yourself £40 - £50 for both ( get the digital for more accuracy)
6, COACH and PT: online coaching may be cheaper and more flexible option for many of you. Starting cost of online coach can be £50, £75, £100, £150 up to £200 per month or even more expensive . Be aware that not every PT has the knowledge how to prepare you for fitness competition. Always look for experienced bodybuilding & fitness coach with knowledge in preparing athletes for fitness show or competition. You will get structure in your prep, programs, support, accountability guidance, nutrition knowledge and motivation.
Also not every coach knows how to prep girls. There are too many coaches offering fitness coaching after one or two competitions they did and they have no idea about what they do. You could do it yourself but trust me, if you new to this you will probably have very slow result or you may only harm yourself. I believe everyone should have a coach if you are serious about achieving your goal & dream.
7, POSING ; posing classes for groups £30-£50 or private 1-2-1 for £100 / £150 …. There are posing coaches taking £200/£250 but make sure they know the posing for your federation and not only teaching you how to get confidence on stage. IFBB , PCA posing is different than WBFF for example. UKBFF and UKUP, PCA,PURE ELITE, MIAMI PRO..each federation has different mandatory poses, posing style and way of presentation. I saw to many girls with bad posing or posing from fitness model types competitions on other federation stages and it looks unprofessional and you only are destroying all your hard work with wrong presentation. Stay presence is absolutely everything when it comes to the D-DAY .

This list of expenses is based on my own experience and all prices can vary based on your suppliers and brands you use
. Many girls are adding cost of botox & fillers to the basic list of cost for their competition season too. As I said this list is not limited but will help you to prepare yourself for what to expect. Competition prep is better and easier when you have your competition budget and finance under control.
