For most this is the “off” season or what I like to call “improvement” season. I start prep again this month and am already thinking about the improvements I want to make to my physique and also to my competition suit for the 2015 competitive season in the IFBB. We all work so hard to dial in our bodies as close to perfection as we can. The hair and makeup is spot on, our posing we kill but what helps tie all of that together to make it a complete package is a killer competition suit!

My go to girl is CJ, owner of CJ’s EIite Competition Wear in Pompano, FL. I have worn her suits since my second NPC show back in 2011. I remember how excited I was when she made my stunning yellow suit, which was completely smothered in Swarovski crystals. I had worn a yellow suit for most of my career and it wasn’t until this past August that I decided to switch up for the IFBB Tampa Pro show. I went to black and wasn’t sure if the judges would like it or not, but it was a hit and everyone loved it. CJ nailed it again. It was a beautiful suit. She is very caring and so detailed and attentive to all of the athletes. She goes above and beyond and that’s something I appreciate and I’m sure her other clients do as well. So if you are looking for a new competition suit designer then CJ is your girl. You can check out some of her suits and even contact her on

Until next time,
