Ask Alfonso: I Want A Bikini Model Body!
I am a 25 year old female and am a very active person. Plus, I started going to the gym about 2 months ago on a regular basis.
My goal is to achieve a Fitness Bikini model “look”.
Do you have any workouts, tips, or program and diet you can recommend?
Hey Nadia how are you?
Congratulations on getting the gym consistently for two months. You’re well on your way to a better, fitter you.
There’s noting wrong with having a particular “look” as a goal, in fact it’s the number one reason people start a program or diet to begin with. Sadly, very few people hitting the gym have health in mind and are more concerned with vanity. I know because I used to be one of them!
The problem with a vanity driven goal is that in some instances it can be achieved in an unhealthy way, and although you may look better, your health isn’t any better off. Whereas when you focus on a program driven by health and fitness goals, you get the best of both worlds. Not only will you be healthier and more functional, but inevitably you’ll look better as well.
There is no one diet or program to achieve a fitness model look, and like most other modeling, much of it is reliant upon your given genes. Now of course you can always improve both your fitness and looks, but if you weren’t born with an hourglass shape, most likely you’ll never have one. But you can still look great!
I learned early on in bodybuilding that the real competition was not with the other guys on stage, but with myself. After all, how could I feel like a failure if someone else had huge calves and mine were smaller? He had the genes for them and I didn’t. So I began competing with former versions of myself, and was driven to look better, and perform better in the gym.
Truthfully looking back over the last 15 years I can say I accomplished my goal. I’m thrilled with how I look now, and can clearly see the timeline of progress. I would urge you to not look at bikini models and try to emulate them, but instead to focus on yourself. You’re only 25, and I can say that exercise maturity takes a long time. Take a look at most fitness models, both men and women, in their 20’s, then again in their 40’s. They always look better in their 40’s, and this is because nothing replaces time in the gym. When someone has worked out and eaten well for years, it shows.
As for diets and programs, I have my recommendations all over the site. Any of my signature workouts would be great for increasing your fitness level while building muscle mass and maturity. Bikini models tend to have lower than average body fat, so you’ll need to watch those calories and work hard to burn some extra to drop a few pounds.
Nadia, it’s really quite simple. Eat healthy, workout consistently, with an appropriate, varied routine that encompasses all aspects of health and fitness and you’ll surely strike gold.
Focus on being the best Nadia you can be!
