She is wanting to do her first show in October in physique. She is open to whatever as long as she doesn’t grow a stash or anything manly. Not wanting to spend our life savings. She doesn’t care if it’s a guy or girl.
I would research the coaches in your area. See who is close by. If it's your wife's first show, she may want the coach to be at the show with her, backstage and all that fun stuff. Will def help with confidence and nerves. Some coaches go to shows, some don't.
Hiring a prep coach is a fantastic investment in reaching your goals , even if you have done several other shows it's good to have a second (and third) set of eyes because generally what you see in yourself is NOT a realistic view.
