Confessions of a Bikini Pro

May 31, 2019

In this episode, host Celeste Rains-Turk has a fun, deep, and really raw conversation with Calysta Upperman, a nurse, online coach, and owner of Upplift training who has been competing since 2015, and earned her pro card at NPC Universe in 2018.

Tune into this episode to hear some of the most grueling parts of Calysta's current prep and all the times she wanted to quit. From moving house, dealing with loads of stress, and having to fight back from eating like an asshole after her last show and what failing to reverse diet taught her.

Listen as Calysta opens up about some of the painful things she rarely talks about that has helped her to see that there is so much more to life than bodybuilding and the pains of bodybuilding don't stack up to other pains in this world, and how she has stopped giving a fuck about what other people think of her and has paved her own way because of it.

Calysta talks to us about what the process to becoming a pro was like for her after winning an overall at a regional show to then placing dead last and not even placing at all at more national shows to finally get third and then onto an Overall Win at Universe. 

We even get into weird things and things like what it is like for her being a coach while she preps others, working long hours as a nurse, not bullshitting people when they ask questions, and why she relies mostly on whole foods and stays away from whey protein products. 

She tells us what she wants to be known for in this life and gives some incredible advice that is sure to light a fire in you everytime you hear it.
