illinois_state_sundayWe had posted about this competition recently, but since then the date has been pushed back to Sunday, April 27, 2014. While the date may have changed, my message remains the same. There aren’t a lot of local(ish) shows here in the midwest giving you the opportunity to take it to the next level. This is a new competition taking place in Chicago – so it’s within driving distance! That makes a total of two INBA/PNBA shows in Chicago, this is a perfect competition path for you.

You can start out in the INBA with this show in April, then have four months to fine tune your physique for the Natural Universe at the end of August. The April show is also a pro-qualifier. This means you could qualify in April and take the stage with the pros in August. In August, the Universe is a qualifier for the Natural Olympia out in San Diego! If you are a local athlete looking to take the next step, I think I’ve just laid out a pretty compelling competition season for you!

Feel free to approach Ankhjii or I if you have any questions! We’d be happy to help you out with details and information. Don’t forget, Ankhjii is a personal trainer at Total Nutrition now, she can even help you out with getting into competition shape – she has tips for anyone in any category, but any woman considering competing in the Ms. Figure class, this is a unique opportunity to train with a PNBA pro who has traveled this path!
