    LAURA MOORE-SHAY

    1:11:38

    Today, I speak with IFBB Pro Laura Moore-Shay, a full time project manager in engineering. She is also a prep & lifestyle coach, homeowner, and pug mom. She also is the host of the podcast Bikini Things! She first competed in 2017 and turned Pro in 2020 at NPC USAs. Laura speaks in depth about her road to Pro and highs and lows. Being 6 feet tall, Laura has to be careful not looking too thin when she diets down for a show. She decided to start working with Kim Odo and take a long off season to put on more muscle. Laura tells us how she knew she wanted to be a Pro even before she started competing! She kept it to herself until she thought she thought the goal was in her reach. We hear about how Laura plans her improvement seasons and what that means in regards to “old school” bulking. Because of her height and natural body type, it’s harder for her to keep on weight. She firmly believes you have to be happy with your body regardless of the stage you’re in. She has learned to appreciate her offseason body as much as her prep body. In her work as a prep and lifestyle coach, she makes it a priority to foster healthy food relationships. She also believes in being honest with her clients. She does not like extreme cardio or extreme low calorie diets for her prep clients and would rather push a show date than be too extreme. She likes to shift clients immediately into a reverse diet post-show to allow for more flexibility and healthy maintenance of hormones. “If you can manage your time, you can do whatever you want.” This is such an informative conversation, you don’t want to miss it!   Topics covered include: -Bikini Things Podcast -Having confidence and knowing when it’s your time -Shifting into prep mentality -Purchasing her first home -Prepping with a sprained ankle -Planning for improvements -Embracing your body in all seasons -Working as a coach -Work-life balance -Putting in work to increase your confidence -No short cuts to success CONNECT WITH CELESTE: Website: http://www.celestial.fit Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/celestial_fit/ All Links: http://www.celestial.fit/links.html CONNECT WITH LAURA: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/laura_ifbbpro/ Bikini Things Podcast: https://www.instagram.com/bikini_things/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/LauraMooreShay TIME STAMPS [1:00] introductions [2:35] journey to Pro card [10:13] what kept her going [16:45] the feeling of going Pro [19:20] Pro debut [25:30] planning for improvements [35:15] working as a coach [44:08] the importance of positive reinforcement [47:08] working in industrial automation [50:00] time management [58:10] lessons learned [61:00] no short cuts to success [66:55} advice for competitors CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE FREE FOOD RELATIONSHIP COACHING SERIES   CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE FREE POST SHOW BLUES COACHING SERIES   LEARN MORE AND APPLY FOR MY 5 WEEK FOOD RELATIONSHIP HEALING & DISCOVERY COACHING PROGRAM   FOR OTHER FREE RESOURCES, LIVE EVENTS, AND WAYS TO WORK WITH CELESTE CLICK HERE
