Alicia Gowans is a 34 year old competitor who made her debut in the INBA a few years ago.
After some fantastic early results which saw her winning the Miss Fitness Australia INBA title in her second year, she went onto receive a pro card in the WBFF shortly after.
In 2014 she made her Pro debut in WBFF, competing against 180 other girls in the U.S.
She narrowly missed a top 10 spot and has been extremely motivated since to improve her results in 2015.
On the 15th and 16th of August she will be back in Las Vegas at the Cosmopolitan and hopes to achieve a top 10 showing in her second year.
Since becoming involved in the industry, Alicia has completely consumed herself with the fitness lifestyle. She has an ever growing list of “Angels” which she prepares for shows and has some very impressive results for her team with multiple State & National champions.
She has a huge passion for assisting people of various lifestyles with their fitness goals and will shortly be extending that further, opening Brisbane’s first Gold’s Gym at Mount Gravatt.
Opening such an iconic gym like Golds in Australia is a huge privilege to Alicia after spending years as an ambassador for the company.
Alicia has been an ambassador for Bulk Nutrients for more than 18 months and she loves the fact she can get such a wide range of products of such high quality, made in Australia.
Here Alicia discusses her journey for her second shot at Las Vegas WBFF fame, and the team at Bulk Nutrients wish their fantastic ambassador all the best, we love being part of the journey.
