Bikini Or Bust Competitors!

I have a secret to confess. Ok, its probably not really a secret, but I will tell you anyways.  I haven’t arrived, nor will I probably ever.


Bodybuilding is such an interesting sport because months and months of work culminate in 90 seconds on a stage and you are judged on your physique; not on how much weight you can bench press, how good your squat form is, or how many dead lifts you can do before your back rounds out.  Yet they all play a huge part in your overall physique and success in the competition.

It is never done. It’s called bodybuilding, not bodybuilt,  for a reason. It is an active, ongoing activity that you are constantly working at and improving in. It is the rare sport that you get better at the more you work at it.  Just like life.

Fifteen women, including myself, from 4 countries are committed to sharing their lives with you as they work on improving their health and lives and work towards and all natural competition this spring.

So without further delay, here are the AMAZING Bikini Or Bust competitors.  They are fierce and fabulous and can’t wait to live beyond themselves!

    So inspired to “meet” the neat group of ladies who are following in Donloree’s footsteps and gearing up for future figure competitions. Excited to be allowed to watch and learn. Who knows? A miracle may occur in my life and I may be on a stage someday. 🙂 As someone who has known Donloree since she was a “tween” — she has always had a very beautiful, sweet, and encouraging spirit. Onward!

    • I wouldn’t doubt that for a second! In the short time I have gotten to know Donloree, she proves to be the same sweet spirit you described! Thanks for tracking with us!
