Jennifer Roberts - Bikini Competitor

I started working out with my Mom at the age of 13. She inspired me to take care of myself and to have a strong body for all sports and dance. I became a personal trainer in 2000 and decided to do a couple of bodybuilding competitions to understand the art of training for a competition and to see what my body was capable of when pushed. This gave me more credibility as a trainer as well as the personal experience. I then moved to Canmore, AB and started a family and did not compete again until 2014 as a bikini competitor in Phoenix AZ and came 3rd.

My off season diet is not a lot different that my competition diet. I eat very clean in both seasons; however my competition diet is definitely more strict without any cheats and I pay more attention to my macros. The eating plan I find most effective to lose weight and build muscle is eating around 2500 cals when building and then reducing down to around 1500 cals in the last few weeks before stage. The least effective diet I have found is when I have cut calories too early or too much and lose too much of my muscle and end up looking too depleted.

Building self confidence required to strut on stage takes lots of posing practice. When I am confident with a well rehearsed routine it is easier to rock the stage. I just stay focused on the routine and what my "job" is on stage. To tell you the truth, I don't even think about the audience, I am just so focused on the posing and showing the correct angles while keeping a tight body.

Nutrition, Posing and Cardio are equally important to me in my daily regime. If you have the physique but don't know how to show it, the work has been pointless. Cardio and HITT training fluctuate depending on how my physique is coming along with the nutrition plan. I usually start out my training with 20-30 minutes of cardio per day and increase it only if required.

I just finished the Vancouver ProAm show a week ago and I was definitely the most confident I have ever been at a competition. I felt that my physique was on point but more importantly I had put the work into my posing and felt very good about my mandatory poses and routine. This has always been my weak point when competing. I felt very well supported by my coaches who were there for me every step of the way tweaking my food, water and sodium intake right until I stepped on the stage making sure I peaked just right.

Being an athlete has a very positive impact on my overall life. It has helped me grow into a very confident and active person. I am raising a family that enjoys exercising and living a healthy lifestyle. We enjoy cooking nutritious meals together and getting outside enjoying the mountains and a variety of indoor and outdoor activities.
