Confessions of a Bikini Pro

Mar 8, 2019

In this episode, host, Celeste Rains-Turk, speaks with the #2 Bikini Athlete in the world, 23 year old, Lauralie Chapados,  AKA 'the dark horse', because she came out of nowhere and crushed her 2018 season landing her a spot at the Olympia where she earned second place. When this episode was recorded she was prepping for the Arnold Classic and next heads to the Arnold Australia.

Lauralie opens up about her struggles as an amateur with finances, work, and pressures of coaching herself. She shares openly about her journey to the pro level and the adversity she faced to win it in Canada. Lauralie tells us about how she got into competing at such a young age, what she thinks about heading into every competition, and what her game plan is for this season. 

She discusses the impact of personal life changes, quitting her job, and pursuing her dream as being an elite athlete. Lauralie tells us what her feedback has been and what she is currently working on to bring something the judges have never seen her bring before. Lauralie even brings up the opportunities and dream life she has been able to achieve through having faith in her dreams and taking a leap of faith. She has no regrets, loves every day of her life, and is finding ways to be even more of an ambassador for the sport. 

Lauralie teaches us some of her posing tricks, her approach to building muscle, and the mental challenges and rituals she has before shows.

She is a humble, sweet, and intelligent athlete and I am so excited for you all to hear this episode.
