Ms. Namita Nayyar: You have done bold photo shoots. What advice you wish to give to the women of today to be body confident in order to do such bold modeling?
Ms. Kendall Lou Schmidt: To be very honest, there are a lot of things about my body I would like to change. I think every women on this planet feels that way. The secret to being confident is accepting the body that you have and learning to embrace the things that make you beautiful. There are so many different types of women: curvy, slender, muscular, tall, short, busty, and infinite others. Just because you admire a feature you see in someone else, doesn’t mean you should feel less beautiful in comparison. Focus on being the best version of you, and stop worrying about other people.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: The NPC Tahoe Show is the premier bodybuilding contest in California and Nevada. You stood 1st overall in 2012 NPC Tahoe Show. Tell us about this experience and how did you feel before and after the competition?
Ms. Kendall Lou Schmidt: When it comes to competing I have found that when you feel good, you look good. For this reason I stay far away from a lot of the drastic methods competitors often use to cut water in the final week. I keep my carbohydrates coming in as normal, eliminate the extra salt and bulky fiber, and if needed take a very gentle herbal diuretic. I went on stage feeling fantastic, having fun, enjoying the experience.
The Tahoe Show is such a supportive and encouraging environment to compete in. Chris Minnes, the promoter that created this fantastic event, goes above and beyond to ensure that the competitors are taken care of. From beginning to end the show is unique and entertaining. Of all the bikini competitions out there, I’m so happy it was the Tahoe Show that I took overall. Winning feels incredible, and seeing yourself on posters the following year is pretty freaking awesome to. But, the best thing that has come out of that show in particular is the friendships I made in the process.
Ms. Namita Nayyar: Elaborate on your personalised concept of “Personal Training” that you offer?
Ms. Kendall Lou Schmidt: I constantly strive to develop positive mindsets, confidence in self image and a health lifestyle. Each clients personalized program is created to achieve their unique goals. Every client is different. They all have their own motivations, wants and needs, personal strength and personal struggles, time limitations, bad habits and hurdles. What works for one person won’t always work for someone else. I believe personal training is exactly that, personal, so I approach each client as an individual and create something just for them.
