Dana Linn Bailey: Personal Trainer & Lifestyle Consultant
So I entered my first show in May of 2006, which was the NPC Lehigh Valley show. I got 6th place and was told by the judges I was too lean and too cut. I entered the NPC PA championship in Harrisburg a couple weeks later and didn’t diet and ended up and took first in my class and overall. I was then I really kicked up my training even more. I finally had some more competition in my life! I then took try at bodybuilding. I already train like one, so I figure what the heck I will just enter for fun! Not really expecting to win anything, I entered the NPC Mountain Valley Championship in Nov of 2006 for lightweight bodybuilding, and once again, unexpectedly I took the overall. I enjoy competing in bodybuilding because I love going through the mandatory poses and I like making a routine to dance to. Even though I like competing in body building, I feel aI am a little better suited for figure because it is more femine and I’m not looking to get any bigger than I already am. I then competed at NPC Pittsburgh Championship in 2007, where I got 6th place. I took some time off till 2008 and was introduced to a different affiliate, NABBA, which has different rules for figure. NABBA figure is like bodybuilding in heals. You have mandatory poses and also a routine, which gives you more stage time. I entered couple shows in 2008 taking first and overall at the NABBA Eastern USA and also 2nd in NABBA Ms. Figure America. My most recent shows that I have done, since my 2 year break from competing, were the 2010 Tracey Greenwood Classic, which I took first in my class and took the overall of the show, and the 2010 Team Universe, which was my first national show where I got 12th out of 40-some girls. I plan on competing in another national show soon, hopefully before the end of the year.
