    181: A true example of how bikini is a lifestyle with Shonte Turner

    181: A true example of how bikini is a lifestyle with Shonte Turner

    Being in shape is the fountain of youth, right? Shonte has been competing for 12 years, before bikini was even created. She exemplifies how this sport truly is a lifestyle that should be built upon healthy habits, a solid support system, and passion. On this episode, she shares her transition from figure to bikini (and how she made the transition kicking and screaming!), the story behind her turning pro after 10 years, and the real reason she has longevity in the sport: she doesn’t do this for the hype, she truly loves the process. After all, when you go home after winning your pro card, your life still looks the same if you've made this sport your lifestyle.
     
    Shonte’s perspective is blunt and motivational. On this episode, you will hear:
     
    [5:30] - Bikini Hack 
    [8:00] - Don’t let things you can’t control, control you
    [12:00] - Prep is a learning addiction!
    [18:00] - The surprise switch from figure to bikini
    [23:00] - Why the pro card didn’t matter to Shonte
    [27:00] - The perspective you need to enjoy the process
    [32:00] - The pressure of a professional competitor
    [35:00] - Shonte’s ideal career in bodybuilding
    [37:00] - The stages of a bodybuilding career
    [43:00] - Growing your shoulders
    [45:00] - Innovating and investing Swap Trap
