FitX Expo in Melbourne, Australia

#1 Postby Simi » Mon Mar 19, 2012 7:05 am

I was lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to work behind the scenes at the Melbourne FitX Sport and Fitness Expo on the weekend, which also featured the IFBB Pro Grand Prix.
My highlights were getting to hang back stage with some of the pros (including Phil Heath!) and seeing my friends on stage! I wish there was more vegan stuff there though.
I was so inspired and have decided to compete at the event next year. I would love one day to be the first Aussie vegan figure competitor to earn an IFBB pro card ;)
Anyway, thought I'd share some pics here!

OMG what is Erin like???? Is she as nice as she looks????
I do because I can. I can because I want to. I want to because you said I couldn't.

I don't make excuses... I make results

If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you

Yea she's lovely! She actually ended up winning the Australian IFBB Pro Grand Prix on the Saturday evening ;)
She seemed pretty quiet, but I think she was probably very exhausted after competing AND spending both days at the expo meeting fans, taking photos and signing pictures.
