Figure standout Gina Aliotti will skip the 2010 Figure International
December 9, 2009
Competitors entering the 2010 Figure International can breathe a lot easier today, as figure standout Gina Aliotti announced that she will be taking time away from the stage in 2010. In a press release from Aliotti's management company, Fitness Management Group, Aliotti stated she will sit out at least the beginning of the 2010 competitive season. Aliotti, who placed runner-up at both the Figure International and Figure Olympia in 2009, remains undecided about her competitive plans for the rest of 2010, including the Figure Olympia.
"This is the perfect time to focus on my business," Aliotti said about her decision. "Things are really busy and I wouldn't have the time to focus all my attention into preparing for the show. However, I will return to competition, I just can't say exactly when that will be at this time. In the meantime, I will still be heavily involved in the industry."
Below is the press release from Fitness Management Group:
The first thing you're going to notice when the invitations for the 2010 IFBB Figure International comes out is one athlete's name missing from the list Gina Aliotti. The 2008 Figure International winner & 3-time IFBB Figure Olympia 2nd place finisher, or as some declare, the Uncrowned IFBB Figure Olympia champion, has decided to take some time away from the competitive stage.
Please be aware, Gina IS NOT retiring. At only 25 years old, she has not even reached her peak.
Gina will still be extremely involved in the sport, not only with her clients, but through her judging & emcee duties for NPC Southern California district chairman Jon Lindsay. Gina will continue her one on one coaching as she expands her team of athlete's for NPC competitions. Plus she just re-launched her website, www.ginaaliotti.net, which contains a lot of informative content and products such as her FIT:50 recipe book and The Wedding Diet. Gina also is focusing her time on her newly expanded one on one members section with tons of videos, q&a, recipes, videos and an interactive forum. Gina is also continuing to grow her clothing line, G-Fit Active wear, and several other business ventures. Besides all of this, Gina is also preparing for her destination wedding on March 11, 2010.
Although you won't be seeing Gina on stage in a competition suit, you will still be seeing a lot of Gina. At the same time, Gina will continue to be managed by FMG & we are still in search of a company that seeks to utilize Gina & her reputation to endorse their products. Gina will also be available for magazine photo shoots as well.
