Confessions of a Bikini Pro

Mar 29, 2019

In this episode, Celeste Rains-Turk speaks with Robyn Maher, an IFBB pro who is a Fitness and Nutrition Expert who has been featured on national and local TV. She graduated from BYU with a B.S. in Exercise Science and a minor in Nutrition. She is also a NASM Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition Specialist, BFR certified coach, YogaFit 300 hour certified instructor, NPC judge and coach, plus she’s the Promoter of Utah’s first-ever ProAm bodybuilding competition: IFBB/NPC Salt City Showdown. As a single working mom with 3 active teens, full time coach & trainer, plus a professional athlete, we had a lot to discuss.

Even though this episode is longer you will NOT want to miss it. Not only does she open up about her busy life, past, and experiences, she gives us the inside scoop. More than ever shared on here before when it comes to what the judges expectations are and what the NPC expects of the judges along with how judges are picked for certain shows and so much more. Robyn shares with us EXACTLY what it is like from the judges point of view. She tells us everything from politics, scoring, judges job criteria, and those little things that bother the judges that competitors do. 

She also opens up about her fight against her own genetics, troubles with thyroid and hormonal imbalances, bloodwork results, a never ending period, finding a mass in her uterus, and getting a hysterectomy. She shares some of the habits she maintains as a busy woman and what inspired her to commit her life to helping others get healthy.

Robyn discusses why you should always seek to be in competition with yourself and stay away from comparing yourself to others. As a posing coach, judge, and competitor she talks about the best things to focus on when practicing posing. She also shares the importance of having respect for the judges, sport, and other competitors.
