Hi everyone. I am looking to enter my first fitness competition with the Fitness Atlantic 2009. I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of or even participated in this show. I was looking for a little help in differentiating between the categories of bikini, figure and model and the approximate bf and musculature to have. Also, where could I look for posing instruction? I've seen a few vids on youtube but nothing as in depth as I'd like. Should I pick up a posing coach? I welcome any advice in this area. I was thinking about doing a log leading up to the contest as well. Anyways, thanks!

I would definitely pick up a posing coach as the poses can make or break you.
The lines between all the different catagories can be sketchy. You might want to go to muscular development and look for that particular show in the contest picture section and review the winners and losers and see what seperates them.
That will at least give you a visual of that shows track record and a comparison to how you want to look.
Oh and you could try pm'ing holyintellect, he is an actual NPC judge. He might be willing to give you some advice.
Thanks for the advice. I'm very excited to this but as I do more research it seems to be turning into an onion of information!
She wants me to do shows but man, I have better things to do with that kind of money!
LOL thats what I said, since she is a sponsored pro, some of her sponsors put in some money. But she still pays for most of it. So I asked her, What does it look like..she says to me I pay for it but don't even get to pick the color!
I guess you are supposed to rely on them to tell you what looks best on you.
no really. 2 grand for a bikini!
LOL thats what I said, and one you don't even get to say what color it is..She is a pro competitor though, so I guess the stakes are higher.
She is sponsored by Met-Rx and a private sponsor. The private added $500 to throw in on it and Met-Rx ome too. But she still had a hefty bill to pay.
I guess no "sport" is without its costs.
If that is you in your avatar you look very good FincaChick.
Yes, that is me but, I have a way to go. Thanks.
pink looks nice on you from the looks of it.
you look lean too and nice figure you could hold your own in the bikini comp.
figure, cant really tell from your pic. post more? haha
Ok, so I am exactly a month away from my show. I got a posing coach and took some pictures after my 2nd posing section. Here goes:
