Why My Team is “Team Pitcher”

8 Jan

When training for a figure competition or bodybuilding for that matter, people often mistake that it is a very individualized sport.  Yes, there is some truth to it.  I am the one who pushes myself, makes the choices, does the exercises, follows the diet, but what people don’t realize is that there are others involved in the preparation. 

When I first started out, it was just my husband and I and I must say that Manuel has done a phenomenal job.  He is extremely supportive and  knowledgeable in how to properly build a physique.  He has been at my side this whole time and I really appreciate all the time and effort he has put into my preparation.  We have also learned a lot about diet through this process.  What we had no clue about, was what the whole competition scene was going to be like and what the rules and requirements were.  This, is how I met the Pitchers. 

We met in February of last year and Jacques taught me all there is to know about posing, additional diet tips, the NPC rules, what to expect at a show, how to prepare before, during and after a competition and let me tell you… I am so glad I had his help and I am thrilled that I am on board as a team member with Team Pitcher!

There is a lot of preparation that goes into planning a diet and training for a competition.  Even more challenging is that everyone’s body reacts differently and some of us have other complications like Lupus and injuries that makes the job of someone like Jacques even harder.  Thankfully, Jacques is very careful, a planner, and very knowledgeable in his field.   Never, ever, will you see Jacques hand me a rice cake with jam or peanut butter on it and tell me to eat it.  Nope, he is very concerned about making sure that I eat correctly and eat nutritious food that is beneficial to my body.  Strange and unhealthy tactics are not what he is about at all.  Careful planning, accountability, guidance, education,  and the ability to make tweaks in my diet and exercise to get the maximum results are what he is about.

What is even more amazing, is that we are 2 hours away from each other.  I made the trip up to do posing and detail work about diet and training for my very first competition, but everything else we have done has been over email.  Through this whole time, I have felt like he has been right by my side.  Listening and answering all the questions that my husband and I have and carefully planning the right strategies for me.  You know a personal trainer is exceptional at what they do, when they can get you great results by coaching you from 2 hours away. 

Why is it important to be apart of a team?  Motivation, support, honest feedback, diet planning, training, posing practice, and more.  There are so many details that you have to cover when you decide to compete.  Don’t do it alone.  Have the help and guidance so that you can enjoy and get the best experience you can out of your preparation and competition.  I know that I am apart of a team that is sincere and truly cares about the well-being of their team members.
