Bikini Competitor Lindsay Messina
2006 Ms Bikini Atlantic Overall Champion
It all began in High school running and competing in track, starting at the 7th grade when I was on the Varsity team for six years. I competed in the States and Nationals. Competing throughout high school I loved the feeling of the adrenalin rush. I've always liked being in shape for the obvious reasons looking good, but now I'm finding out there is so much more. I now appreciate being healthier, having more energy and passing on my knowledge to clients.
I teach on daily basis, six days a week my classes consist of high impact cardio, weight training and a variety of Dance and power pump classes. My diet while I'm working out is strict. Even when I'm not competing I really don't binge. I always try to eat 5 small meals a day and once a week I cheat weather its Pizza or Ice cream. When I'm in competition mode, I don't cheat at all and take in much more protein, (Muscle Milk) is my favorite. I also up my cardio and do more reps with lighter weights when I weight train. Through out my weeks of working out I always take Naturlite organic vitamins to keep me healthy and energized.
I would like to take the time out to thank my family and friends for their support. Also my boyfriend that told me over one year ago the I should get into Bikini and Fitness competitions if it wasn't for him giving me the confidence and the boost I wouldn't of have this great opportunity. You guys are the best!!!
In the future I would like to be sponsored by a big Company or endorsed by a clothing line. Being a role model in Health and fitness and eventually down the road I want to open my own Gym.
