Angela Yeo's 2014 Competition Season

$2,355 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 22 people in 53 months

Angela Yeo (Ankhjii) will be competing in several Figure events in the 2014 season, her first season as a pro. We haven't yet been able to secure sponsors, so every expense for every show will have to come from us and from our generous supporters. Here is a recap of the 2013 season.

Her first competition was in April 2013 at a local show - The Toledo Glass Scepter. She won the novice figure overall and then the open figure overall titles. You can see some info and images by clicking here.

Her second competition was in August. It was an international show - The 2013 Natural Universe where she won the open overall title in figure again. This won her a pro card and an invite to the Olympia. More info and images available by clicking here and you can see an interview after the win by clicking here.
It is important to stress here that she is a member of the INBA and PNBA which you can read about at the Natural Bodybuilding website
-This means that she is committed to being an all natural athlete, INBA/PNBA drug test all athletes 100% to WADA standards - the same standards that Olympic athletes are held to. Her wins are thanks to her hard work and clean eating.

Ankhjii attended the Natural Olympia in November of 2013. This was her first opportunity to participate as a professional athlete. She won the silver medal in both the amateur and the professional class which made her a full fledged professional athlete. You can see pictures from the Olympia here.

We are at the tail end of the 2014 season now and getting ready for the Natural Olympia. This will be her 3rd show of the season. The first 2, The Spartan Classic and The Natural Universe she won Professional Figure.

Ankhjii started out on her own which is very unique. Through the 2013 season she did not even belong to a gym, no coach, no trainer, no plan. Recently she began as a personal trainer at Total Nutrition which also allows her to train at a gym while helping others get in shape. She has also joined up with The Hardbody Team which helps keep her on track, but adds expense.

Ankhjii has been featured on WTOL 11 news, you can check that out by clicking here.
A powerful news story was run by 13ABC news that you can see online at this link.
She was also recently featured in the Bedford Now paper, you can see the online version of that story here.
You can also see an interview done by Midwest Muscle right after her Natural Universe win here.

The 2014 season will be extremely challenging. There will be several shows and each comes with a good deal of expense. While we do our best to save every penny, generous donations truly help us to make each competition a reality.

Here is a breakdown of some of the estimated costs that the season and each individual show can incur so that you can see where our total has come from:

Coaching - At least $100 per month
Hotel expenses - $110 - $700 depending on the event
Travel - $100 - &1000 depending on location and whether driving or flying
PNBA Pro Card Application - $150 annual
Pro Figure Entry - $200 - $275 per show
My (her husband) all access pass - $100 - $249 (I need all access to go backstage to help her any way I can)
Cooler, Food, and Cookware/hotplate - $300 (there are often no kitchenette rooms, we need to be able to prepare competition food for her)
Groceries and dining - $400
Posing Suit - $400 (usually try to get a new one every now and then for a fresh stage presence)
Taxi / Rental Car - $350 (we still need to determine what will work best)
Tanning - $250
Airport Parking - $150
GoFundMe Fees - Percentage of every donation

You can also donate items needed throughout the season directly through Ankhjii's Amazon wishlist if you'd rather help in that way!

We have arrived at peak week! Time to make sure everything is in check, pack our bags, and head out west! We did receive some good news in that I am getting my money back for the botched car repair that happened months ago. That'll help tonnes by covering the cost of the hotel. But there is still a good deal of expenses to cover including parking, food, food storage, etc. It would be so very helpful to raise just a bit more money to cover the remaining expenses. Your donations this week will truly help put us over the top and help us come home without too much debt. Ankhjii has put in the most effort ever and this should be an amazing show. It will be livecast too, I'll get details on that as soon as possible!

In 2 weeks, Ankhjii will be on scene, in California, getting ready for the Natural Olympia. We still have a few things to figure out how to pay for. The hotel for the competition, tanning, airport parking, and food for her while we are there. If we can count on just a little more support from everyone that would simply be amazing! All of your generous donations have gotten us this far in the season, please consider helping us on this final push! Thank you so much!

We are just one month out from the start of the Olympia. It's time to register this week. We are still a good deal off of our funding goal and really trying to plot out how to pay for it all. The Olympia will happen no matter what; however, your donations can help less of it happen on credit cards. So many people have generously donated already and helped us get this far - we truly appreciate any donation, no matter how small it may seem to you. Every cent is a little less that we need to stress over. Thank you so much for your help and for being a part of Team YEO!

It's approaching time for us to send in the registration fees for The Natural Olympia!! Entry fees are expensive, but necessary, as they contribute to the prize money that these amazing champions earn. The fees also keep the organization running and make the events possible. For every show, we pay for Ankhjii's pro entry fee plus VIP access for me (Jamie) so that I am available backstage for anything Ankhjii could need me to do. For the Olympia, the fees add up to somewhere around $500. We are very excited about this year, Ankhjii is working harder than ever before, balancing the most challenging program yet with her training clients, and finishing up her ISSA certification. Any donations received over the next few weeks will go directly to the entry fee. We hope we can count on you to help get us there. Thank you so much for the generous donations you all have made so far!!

We just received another offline donation for $200. This is amazing and takes us another step closer toward our goal! We are almost at the halfway point to our goal. After the Natural Universe, we will push hard to reach that goal as we make that final drive to the Natural Olympia!
