RANT: I have been competing since 1999, learning from experience and through the advice and guidance of those that helped form the new sport of Figure, a sport formed after Fitness (Fitness without the routine). I loved it so much that I wanted to share my experience and get others involved in it. I decided to start a posing clinic, an idea I got from Nancy Georges (now an IFBB pro with years of experience that shadow mine) as she hosts Stage Might Posing Clinics in the LA area. Lately, so many people have been hosting their own posing clinics with minimal experience, especially on a national level. Please pick your posing coach wisely. I have 50 shows under my belt in fitness, bikini, model, and figure in 5 different organizations.
