Bikini Or Bust Competitor Goals!

Yesterday I was asked a funny question.

Can this be the same woman that wore all her clothes in a tanning booth?!!?!

My first response was a resounding, “No, of course not!” After some self reflection, I realized that the answer is yes. Yes, it is the same woman, she just finally believes in herself, decided to go somewhere, and find out who she was made to be.  It is true that at one point in my life I was so insecure with myself that I couldn’t even go in a tanning bed without all my clothes on. That same woman walked a stage in a bedazzled suit and 5 inch heels on top of the world.

It’s hard to know if you’ve arrived if you don’t know where you are or where you want to go. The fabulously driven, inspirational, and brave Bikini or Bust Competitors will know when they have arrived. They are setting audacious goals to ensure success.

Without further ado, here is how they are going to kick some Figure arse this spring!
