Here's what Maddie has to say:
Competing in the fitness industry is one of my greatest passions along side with modelling and horseback riding. However just because you are making your body in a gym does not mean it will come finance free. Here is a break down of approximate monthly costs plus the cost of show day, of one fitness competition
Building Your Body (aka: You haven't decided to compete yet):
The Prep Begins (You've decided to go for it!):
Its Show Day (and you look awesome!):
That totals (drum roll, please!): $1,535
Minimum cost: $1,535 going on the cheap.
Average cost: $2,245 if you do it like the pros.
Total time on stage: 8 minutes.
Cost per minute: $280.63
Now don't get me wrong I cannot put a price on what competing has done for me physically, emotionally and mentally - it is absolutely worth it to me. Just make sure you are doing it for the right reasons and it is worth your investment. Good luck ❤
