-I'm Nia Ceidiog.

0:00:110:00:13

-I am a 63-year-old grandmother.

0:00:140:00:16

-I've been preparing for this

-for a year.

0:00:160:00:19

-I'll be competing for the first time

-in a bodybuilding championship.

0:00:210:00:26

-It's going to be

-a bizarre experience.

0:00:300:00:32

-But I believe that anything

-is possible.

0:00:330:00:36

-After all, age is just a number.

0:00:380:00:42

-It's autumn, and I'm in the autumn

-of my life.

0:00:530:00:56

-12 months before the competition.

0:00:560:00:58

-I'm almost 63 years old.

0:00:580:01:01

-There's a good chance that I have

-at least thirty years of life left.

0:01:010:01:06

-I feel excited, stupidly excited.

0:01:060:01:12

-I think - this is bonkers.

0:01:120:01:15

-I've never shown this to anyone...

0:01:200:01:22

-..so showing this to you

-and the camera...

0:01:220:01:28

-..makes me very nervous.

0:01:290:01:33

-It's the start of the journey.

-It's a big thing.

0:01:360:01:39

-Although I've been...

0:01:410:01:42

-Although I've been...

-

-Nia?

0:01:420:01:43

-Shit!

0:01:430:01:45

-Once Nia starts competing...

0:01:450:01:48

-..her body fat will have to be

-about 12 or 14.

0:01:490:01:54

-I don't want to see this at all.

0:01:540:01:58

-According to Anna...

0:02:000:02:02

-..the system is to lose fat

-in order to exhibit big muscles...

0:02:020:02:07

-..on a competitive stage.

0:02:070:02:09

-Well, at least I have some

-performance experience.

0:02:090:02:13

-Bonsoir, hello, hello, hello!

0:02:130:02:15

-Yes, we're here once again to make

-sure that the lines are very busy!

0:02:160:02:20

-I used to be a television presenter

-until they decided I was too old.

0:02:210:02:25

-I was only 40.

0:02:260:02:27

-I decided to become

-a children's TV producer.

0:02:270:02:31

-Hello Nia!

0:02:330:02:34

-Is everybody happy?

0:02:350:02:36

-Sometimes children

-and weightlifting...

0:02:380:02:43

-..just don't weigh up.

0:02:430:02:45

-Don't mind me. I'm just going

-to remove your trousers.

0:02:470:02:51

-So, why am I doing this?

0:02:530:02:56

-I thought if I was going to learn

-about something...

0:02:560:03:02

-..I needed to do a certain amount

-of it myself.

0:03:020:03:06

-The fact that Anna was back in

-Cardiff inspired me to do it.

0:03:060:03:11

-I grew up with her son.

-He was like a brother to me.

0:03:130:03:17

-We used to skateboard up and down

-the lane outside Kings Road.

0:03:180:03:22

-She looked after us.

0:03:220:03:24

-Now, Dafydd, my eldest son, builds

-roads and bridges in Africa.

0:03:240:03:29

-Anna builds bodies in Cardiff.

0:03:300:03:32

-I'm going to transform her

-into someone stunning.

0:03:340:03:38

-I did the same thing in May.

0:03:390:03:42

-It's a world I know nothing about.

0:03:430:03:47

-It feels like somewhere

-I would never ever go.

0:03:490:03:53

-But I was so proud of Anna's

-success...

0:03:540:03:58

-..and over coffee one day, I said,

-"What if I were to compete?"

0:03:580:04:04

-I remember thinking to myself...

0:04:040:04:08

-..that I must stop being so smiley

-with her and be more strict.

0:04:080:04:13

-I'm going to eat healthily.

0:04:130:04:15

-It will be very difficult because

-you're obsessed with healthy eating.

0:04:150:04:19

-I don't take dairy

-and I don't like eating meat.

0:04:200:04:23

-Yes, but one of the recipes for

-success is steak, ice cream...

0:04:230:04:27

-..pizza and chips combined.

0:04:270:04:29

-What? Mixed up together in a bowl?

0:04:300:04:32

-Yes.

0:04:320:04:33

-And push...

0:04:340:04:35

-In through the nose...

0:04:360:04:38

-Squeeze and push.

0:04:380:04:41

-I've never trained Nia

-for bodybuilding before.

0:04:420:04:45

-I don't know how she will react

-to my suggestions.

0:04:450:04:48

-Perhaps what I suggest

-won't suit her.

0:04:480:04:51

-We'll have to change the exercise

-and diet regime very quickly.

0:04:510:04:56

-There's no way of knowing how she

-will respond to our approach.

0:04:560:05:00

-If you work the muscle

-in every direction...

0:05:000:05:03

-..the shape will become fuller.

0:05:030:05:05

-You can't afford not to do exactly

-what I tell you.

0:05:060:05:09

-You can't afford not to put

-the heaviest weight on the bar.

0:05:090:05:13

-You have no choice.

0:05:130:05:15

-That should make life easier.

0:05:150:05:17

-You have no choice. You are behind.

-I'm being honest with you.

0:05:170:05:21

-People who compete at your age

-will be seasoned.

0:05:210:05:24

-They already have good muscles.

0:05:240:05:27

-To make life easier for yourself,

-get in there, rack it up.

0:05:270:05:31

-We have just under a year.

0:05:330:05:36

-I want to take at least six or seven

-months to bulk Nia.

0:05:360:05:41

-Then we can do the cutting,

-losing the fat...

0:05:410:05:45

-..quickly and aggressively

-if necessary.

0:05:450:05:47

-The most important thing

-is that she goes up there...

0:05:480:05:51

-..looking lean and muscly, like an

-anatomy and physiology poster.

0:05:510:05:55

-I'm quite lean and I feel agile

-and I'm healthy.

0:05:580:06:02

-My body works.

0:06:020:06:04

-I do yoga every day.

0:06:060:06:08

-I got into fitness and yoga

-when I met Catrin.

0:06:100:06:13

-We went to India together

-four years ago.

0:06:130:06:17

-What she thinks is important to me.

0:06:170:06:20

-Remember what Rory said

-when we were in India.

0:06:210:06:24

-Your body is your laboratory.

0:06:240:06:26

-Oh yes.

0:06:270:06:28

-It's true, isn't it?

0:06:280:06:30

-Nia is so determined.

0:06:320:06:34

-The most difficult thing in life

-is finding the balance.

0:06:340:06:39

-I thought that Nia and I

-had found the balance...

0:06:390:06:43

-..and I'm afraid that

-she's gone the other way now.

0:06:430:06:47

-She knows a lot

-and she's learned a lot...

0:06:510:06:53

-..so

-I'm not worried about her health.

0:06:540:06:56

-I'm more worried about

-her state of mind.

0:06:560:07:00

-Where I think Nia

-will have difficulties...

0:07:030:07:08

-..is with the diet.

0:07:090:07:11

-The eating you have to do

-at the start is exhausting.

0:07:110:07:16

-You have to eat from morning

-'till night.

0:07:160:07:19

-And because she's a vegan

-or whatever...

0:07:200:07:23

-..it's difficult to get

-a lot of calories from lentils.

0:07:230:07:27

-I can't even pronounce

-some of the things she eats!

0:07:280:07:32

-Anyway, it's difficult.

0:07:320:07:34

-If she were willing to eat a burger

-occasionally or some cheese...

0:07:340:07:38

-..it would be a lot easier.

0:07:380:07:40

-I want her to put some tub on.

0:07:400:07:42

-7 months before the competition.

0:07:440:07:48

-Anna has been very firm

-right from the start...

0:07:500:07:53

-..about this protein business.

0:07:530:07:55

-I was prepared to try dairy...

0:07:550:07:58

-I bought this.

0:07:590:08:00

-To be fair, I have tried it.

0:08:000:08:02

-But it makes me ill.

0:08:030:08:05

-It contains milk.

0:08:060:08:08

-Also, it's so processed...

0:08:080:08:10

-..because it's not only

-a whey protein...

0:08:110:08:14

-..it's Platinum Hydrowhey.

0:08:150:08:18

-So I'm going for this one.

0:08:180:08:23

-My version.

0:08:230:08:25

-This one is made from rice.

0:08:270:08:30

-At the moment, I go to the gym

-three times a week.

0:08:330:08:37

-She asks me to do two weights

-sessions on my own.

0:08:370:08:41

-And I have to do cardio exercises

-as well.

0:08:420:08:46

-I'm missing my yoga.

-That's for sure.

0:08:480:08:50

-There just isn't enough time.

0:08:510:08:53

-I'm seeing a change in myself.

0:08:550:08:57

-I'm more impatient than I was.

0:08:580:09:00

-I'm not such a nice person anymore.

0:09:010:09:04

-I don't know if it's related

-to the change in my diet.

0:09:070:09:10

-Or if it's something to do with the

-drive needed to do what I'm doing.

0:09:110:09:17

-Focus now! I want it more gritty.

0:09:180:09:20

-You need to push through the floor,

-push through your core.

0:09:200:09:24

-In 3, 2, 1...

0:09:240:09:26

-3, 2, 1, push, push, push, push,

-push!

0:09:280:09:30

-Someone will be saying that to me

-in a few months.

0:09:320:09:35

-Yes, we'll see how you deal

-with being bossed around!

0:09:360:09:40

-I'll be fed up after an hour.

0:09:400:09:42

-I'm expecting a baby.

-A strong one, I hope.

0:09:420:09:46

-I'll help you.

0:09:470:09:48

-I don't know whether the fact

-that Anna is pregnant...

0:09:480:09:52

-..will alter the process.

0:09:520:09:54

-I wonder.

0:09:540:09:56

-I'm sure that by July and August,

-I won't be able to spot her.

0:09:560:10:01

-It's a matter of safety.

0:10:020:10:03

-The onus will be on her...

0:10:030:10:06

-..to be strong enough

-to lift her own weights.

0:10:060:10:10

-It's Wednesday.

0:10:120:10:13

-I got up early this morning

-to go and train.

0:10:140:10:16

-This happens quite often.

0:10:170:10:18

-It's this food business.

0:10:190:10:20

-It's just so difficult.

0:10:240:10:27

-Every now and again, I get flushes.

0:10:300:10:34

-I'm too old for flushes.

0:10:380:10:39

-I've gone past that.

0:10:430:10:44

-I think it must be the meat.

0:10:450:10:49

-Or maybe, I'm eating too much.

0:10:500:10:52

-When it happens,

-it feels like a panic attack.

0:10:540:10:57

-I'm eating 2,800 calories

-at the moment.

0:10:570:11:01

-It's gone up and up and up.

0:11:020:11:03

-It started at 2,300, then 2,500,

-then 2,700.

0:11:030:11:06

-Now it's 2,800 calories every day.

0:11:070:11:10

-Omelettes, egg whites, prawns,

-protein shake.

0:11:110:11:15

-I have snacks. Sometimes it's tofu.

0:11:150:11:17

-For lunch, it's either turkey

-with new potatoes and brown rice.

0:11:180:11:23

-Or chicken breast.

0:11:230:11:25

-In the evening,

-turkey again perhaps.

0:11:250:11:28

-For dessert,

-oats with added protein.

0:11:290:11:33

-Then, if I still haven't had enough

-calories, which is possible...

0:11:330:11:38

-..at the moment,

-I'm trying yoghurt again.

0:11:380:11:41

-This is awful!

0:11:420:11:43

-I haven't had enough calories today.

0:11:440:11:46

-I've had one huge bowl of porridge

-containing a protein shake.

0:11:470:11:50

-And now I'm having another in bed.

0:11:500:11:53

-I've added nuts to bulk it out

-a bit.

0:11:530:11:56

-Bulking is the name of the game.

0:11:570:11:59

-I have to eat it in bed

-because then I can lie down...

0:12:000:12:04

-..and hopefully go to sleep.

0:12:040:12:06

-So, I've eaten it.

0:12:080:12:09

-There's something horrid

-about all this.

0:12:100:12:12

-Vulgar is the English word.

0:12:120:12:15

-The following morning

-I feel like a lump of lead.

0:12:180:12:21

-I'm not much better

-than I was last night.

0:12:210:12:24

-I thought my stomach might have

-emptied a little overnight.

0:12:240:12:28

-But it hasn't.

0:12:280:12:29

-I feel really heavy.

0:12:300:12:32

-I don't feel great.

0:12:350:12:36

-I'm not sure she'll be ready

-by the end of the year. We'll see.

0:12:550:12:57

-Spring has finally arrived.

0:13:000:13:02

-I'm feeling a bit better

-about the whole thing.

0:13:030:13:06

-Especially on a morning like this.

-It's nice to hear the birds singing.

0:13:060:13:11

-I'm feeling quite strong

-although I'm tired.

0:13:110:13:14

-Things are going well.

0:13:160:13:17

-I'm still a bit nervous.

0:13:210:13:22

-But she's doing as much as she can,

-so I'm quite happy.

0:13:220:13:26

-We had a bit of a setback.

0:13:260:13:28

-I had to put my foot down

-a week or two ago...

0:13:280:13:33

-..because I found out...

0:13:330:13:35

-..that she wasn't eating

-the prescribed calories...

0:13:350:13:39

-..that are so important.

0:13:390:13:41

-I could see that her muscles

-weren't growing...

0:13:410:13:44

-..even though she was working

-so hard in the gym.

0:13:440:13:47

-I'm good.

-I couldn't understand it.

0:13:470:13:50

-Modest!

0:13:500:13:51

-5 months before the competition.

0:13:510:13:53

-It's so frustrating.

0:13:530:13:55

-When I get a moment like that,

-I start thinking about my age.

0:13:550:14:00

-I wonder if it's because

-I'm a little older...

0:14:000:14:03

-..that I don't remember things.

0:14:040:14:06

-When is this baby coming?

0:14:080:14:10

-I think it will be August.

0:14:100:14:12

-On the positive side,

-when something works...

0:14:150:14:18

-..and I know I am succeeding...

0:14:180:14:21

-..it gives me great satisfaction.

0:14:210:14:23

-I have to remember that feeling

-and not get disheartened.

0:14:230:14:27

-But that's easier said than done.

0:14:300:14:32

-She has to work ten times

-harder...

0:14:340:14:37

-..because of her age

-and lack of experience.

0:14:370:14:40

-She has started sticking

-to the calories...

0:14:400:14:43

-..and lo and behold...

0:14:430:14:46

-..she has put on three kilos

-in four weeks.

0:14:460:14:51

-It just shows that the system works

-if you stick to it.

0:14:520:14:55

-I don't like the idea of overeating.

0:14:570:14:59

-I don't like that fact

-that I'm eating meat.

0:15:000:15:04

-I'm starting to question

-whether I need to eat all this food.

0:15:050:15:10

-Could the muscles grow

-without overeating?

0:15:100:15:16

-It's harder than I expected.

0:15:180:15:20

-I think what I'm doing is crazy.

0:15:210:15:24

-Stupid, even.

0:15:270:15:28

-I can't escape at all.

0:15:310:15:32

-I have to exercise

-and I have to eat...

0:15:330:15:37

-..because I've said that I'm going

-to do this thing.

0:15:370:15:40

-Sometimes I regret it.

0:15:410:15:44

-Sometimes I get disheartened.

0:15:450:15:47

-I can't tell anyone...

0:15:470:15:49

-..because that would be admitting...

0:15:490:15:51

-..that I'm doing something

-I shouldn't.

0:15:520:15:54

-There are dozens of gyms

-in the valleys.

0:16:040:16:07

-Many of them are traditional

-bodybuilding gyms.

0:16:070:16:12

-There are many reasons, including

-social reasons, why they exist.

0:16:120:16:17

-Today, I'm visiting

-a very special gym.

0:16:200:16:24

-Until now, I've been training

-in a bubble in Cardiff.

0:16:310:16:34

-I thought I'd like to make

-some new friends.

0:16:340:16:37

-That's why I've come here.

0:16:370:16:39

-Mike and Leica Gelsei run the gym.

0:16:430:16:45

-They are bodybuilding champions.

0:16:480:16:50

-Leica is also an international

-adjudicator.

0:16:500:16:54

-They help other champions prepare

-for competitions.

0:16:540:16:58

-You need to build your muscles

-and learn how to exhibit them.

0:17:000:17:04

-Posing.

0:17:040:17:05

-Leica specializes in that.

0:17:050:17:08

-It's nothing whatsoever to do

-with the gym.

0:17:090:17:12

-This is very much about

-what we do on the stage.

0:17:120:17:15

-The posing routine is for Jayne

-to show off her best parts.

0:17:160:17:20

-Jayne is in her forties.

0:17:220:17:24

-She has only been bodybuilding

-for four years.

0:17:250:17:28

-She is already a national winner.

0:17:280:17:31

-They say that once you reach forty,

-your muscles begin to shrink.

0:17:320:17:37

-So we're in the same boat

-in that respect.

0:17:370:17:40

-But she and Leica are talking

-as if age isn't a big problem.

0:17:400:17:45

-Good job! And relax.

0:17:470:17:48

-This is a way of stopping the ageing

-process as well.

0:17:490:17:54

-Quarter turn to the right.

0:17:540:17:56

-Do you think you could coach me

-to pose?

0:17:580:18:02

-Absolutely!

0:18:030:18:04

-Do you really think so?

0:18:040:18:06

-100%

0:18:060:18:07

-That would be brilliant.

0:18:100:18:11

-But first, I have to have a body

-worth exhibiting.

0:18:120:18:16

-And that's looking impossible

-at the moment.

0:18:170:18:20

-I'm in a bit of a quandary,

-to be honest.

0:18:250:18:27

-There is fat everywhere...

0:18:350:18:38

-..where there wasn't before.

0:18:380:18:41

-I look like a belly dancer,

-except that I can't do it!

0:18:430:18:46

-I just don't feel right.

0:18:470:18:49

-At night, I get a rash

-all over my skin.

0:18:490:18:53

-I have to lift my hair

-and my skin is all red.

0:18:530:18:57

-I think it's my liver...

0:18:580:19:03

-..protesting because I'm eating

-too much food.

0:19:040:19:10

-Also...

0:19:110:19:12

-..I have an infection

-in my nails.

0:19:130:19:18

-Something like you get on your feet,

-such as athlete's foot.

0:19:180:19:24

-But on my fingers!

0:19:240:19:27

-PHONE RINGS

0:19:270:19:28

-I was expecting this phone call.

0:19:320:19:34

-Who do you turn to

-when you're in trouble?

0:19:340:19:37

-To your friend.

0:19:380:19:40

-Yeah!

0:19:400:19:41

-I'm prepared to work really hard.

0:19:420:19:44

-I'm prepared to work really hard.

-

-I know you are.

0:19:440:19:46

-At the moment, if I'm honest,

-I feel like giving up.

0:19:460:19:50

-Don't give up!

0:19:510:19:53

-She puts a lot of pressure

-on herself.

0:19:530:19:56

-I feel very protective towards her.

0:19:560:19:58

-I don't want any harm

-to come to her.

0:20:000:20:03

-Thank you.

0:20:040:20:05

-You're welcome.

0:20:060:20:07

-I really miss her.

0:20:080:20:12

-So, I thought if I'm going to keep

-going, I have to be healthy.

0:20:130:20:19

-Or there's no hope.

0:20:190:20:21

-So, without consulting Anna

-because she's away...

0:20:210:20:25

-..I decided not to overeat

-and not to eat any more meat.

0:20:250:20:29

-And definitely, no dairy.

0:20:290:20:31

-Within days, I was a different

-person - body and soul.

0:20:310:20:37

-It's the end of May...

0:20:400:20:43

-..and the Welsh championships

-are taking place in Port Talbot.

0:20:430:20:47

-Anna and I go to have a look

-to see what's what.

0:20:470:20:50

-It's great to see some familiar

-faces like Jayne's backstage.

0:20:500:20:54

-There are incredible bodies

-everywhere.

0:20:550:20:57

-If that tan isn't right on stage,

-you're taking points off yourself.

0:20:570:21:01

-It goes into every single

-nook and cranny.

0:21:020:21:06

-Can I try and pout like you?

0:21:060:21:08

-Yes. Duckface.

0:21:080:21:10

-Show them your abs, butt.

0:21:140:21:16

-Awesome, innit?

0:21:170:21:19

-You have to take your boob

-out of the bikini...

0:21:190:21:22

-..glue the boob,

-then shove it back in.

0:21:220:21:26

-Such a glamorous job, isn't it?

0:21:270:21:29

-The smell is quite nice because your

-diet's so shit at this point.

0:21:300:21:35

-I wonder if I could eat it!

-How many calories in it, Lou?

0:21:350:21:39

-So this is competition level...

0:21:390:21:43

-..and this is big fat belly!

0:21:430:21:45

-I decided to confess to Anna

-that I have changed my diet.

0:21:480:21:52

-I think I'm starting to find

-another way.

0:21:520:21:55

-You've found another way?

0:21:550:21:57

-Well, in the sense that...

0:21:570:22:00

-..I think I've found a way...

0:22:000:22:04

-..where my energy is good.

0:22:040:22:08

-Of course, having plenty of energy

-is a good thing...

0:22:150:22:18

-..but my energy wasn't good

-for ages.

0:22:180:22:21

-I felt exhausted and sluggish.

0:22:210:22:25

-I felt like human foie gras.

-I felt disgusting.

0:22:250:22:28

-My energy wasn't in a good place

-for a couple of months.

0:22:280:22:32

-It's all part of it.

0:22:320:22:34

-You can't look like these men

-and women without suffering.

0:22:340:22:38

-You have to suffer.

0:22:380:22:40

-I was shocked that she had made

-such drastic changes.

0:22:410:22:45

-She cut 600 calories or more

-from her diet.

0:22:450:22:48

-She looked slimmer.

-But I don't want slim.

0:22:490:22:52

-At her age, we have to work on

-building the muscles.

0:22:520:22:55

-That was the important thing.

0:22:550:22:58

-But she wasn't happy.

0:22:580:22:59

-She thinks the priority is

-to be happier and more balanced.

0:23:000:23:03

-I disagree with that.

0:23:030:23:05

-It's a sort of compromise,

-but it's a shaky one.

0:23:060:23:08

-I'm going to continue

-my own eating regime.

0:23:090:23:13

-I think there is a way forward

-in this way.

0:23:130:23:17

-3 months before the competition.

0:23:190:23:21

-Today, the real preparation begins.

0:23:210:23:24

-Three months of dieting

-and exercise...

0:23:240:23:26

-..lead to the end of autumn.

0:23:270:23:28

-This is the beginning stage

-of the hard work.

0:23:290:23:33

-This is where it starts to work.

0:23:340:23:36

-Unfortunately,

-the honeymoon phase is gone.

0:23:360:23:39

-I've been at it since last October.

0:23:390:23:41

-That's still the honeymoon.

0:23:420:23:44

-We take two teaspoons of coconut

-oil in our coffee in the morning.

0:23:440:23:48

-That's your starter for the day.

0:23:480:23:51

-Veggie sausages or Quorn sausages...

0:23:510:23:53

-..with mushrooms will be your

-breakfast.

0:23:540:23:56

-That's okay.

0:23:570:23:58

-That's a nice breakfast.

0:23:580:24:00

-And a whole egg as well as egg

-whites? That's brilliant.

0:24:000:24:03

-At this moment,

-this is where we're going.

0:24:030:24:06

-So, meat I don't have to do?

0:24:060:24:08

-So, meat I don't have to do?

-

-No.

0:24:080:24:09

-I have many clients who are

-vegetarians, vegans...

0:24:100:24:14

-..people with intolerances etc.

0:24:140:24:17

-We work through that together.

0:24:170:24:19

-Music to my ears!

0:24:200:24:21

-Your last meal will be 150g of

-salmon, 150g of green veg...

0:24:220:24:26

-..steamed

-or whatever your choice is.

0:24:260:24:29

-At this stage, we're a little more

-relaxed about the greens.

0:24:290:24:34

-Don't force feed.

0:24:340:24:36

-Just because it's on the plan,

-don't think you have to eat it.

0:24:360:24:40

-I've been down that road,

-it's horrible.

0:24:400:24:42

-No, we don't do that.

0:24:430:24:44

-Come on!

0:24:460:24:47

-Leica is very firm and I feel

-stronger and healthy.

0:24:480:24:52

-On I go...

0:24:540:24:55

-..but I know there will be some

-nasty moments along the way.

0:24:560:25:01

-Subtitles

0:25:060:25:06

-Subtitles

-

-Subtitles

0:25:060:25:08

-It's the middle of the summer...

-but for me it's spring again.

0:25:100:25:13

-My body is waking up and changing.

0:25:150:25:17

-It's responding to the diet

-and exercise.

0:25:180:25:20

-I'm still working hard

-at my day job.

0:25:210:25:25

-I seem to have enough energy

-for both.

0:25:250:25:27

-The children and the bodybuilding.

0:25:280:25:30

-I've put down roots

-at the gym in Cilfynydd.

0:25:320:25:35

-You could be very nervous

-going into this gym.

0:25:380:25:41

-But they've been so welcoming

-and so ready to chat.

0:25:420:25:47

-Nearly everyone feels that meeting

-Mike and Leica...

0:25:500:25:56

-..has been their salvation.

0:25:560:25:59

-I feel privileged...

0:25:590:26:01

-..to have been able to share

-their knowledge and experience.

0:26:010:26:06

-I've made friends too, like Eleri.

0:26:060:26:09

-When we're training, we're training.

0:26:090:26:12

-But even when we're training,

-we still have fun.

0:26:120:26:16

-We compete against each other,

-but everyone helps one another too.

0:26:160:26:21

-I do like dancing

-and having a good time.

0:26:210:26:23

-Active rest between sets.

0:26:240:26:25

-That's it. You go like this.

0:26:350:26:38

-What? Like this?

0:26:390:26:40

-Yes.

0:26:410:26:42

-So you have a bit of a curve there.

0:26:420:26:45

-Then you open out.

0:26:450:26:46

-Yes.

0:26:460:26:47

-Then you can do this.

0:26:480:26:50

-Hey! You know how to do it!

0:26:500:26:52

-Then you go out like this.

0:26:520:26:54

-It also depends...

0:26:550:26:57

-Another morning.

0:27:040:27:05

-It's six o'clock...

0:27:050:27:08

-..and my regime is starting

-to change quite drastically.

0:27:080:27:12

-But it suits me.

0:27:120:27:14

-I'm finding that I have

-a lot of energy.

0:27:140:27:17

-Preparing for each day

-is a busy time.

0:27:170:27:20

-While I'm preparing an egg white and

-mushroom omelette for breakfast...

0:27:220:27:26

-..I also prepare three more meals to

-take with me to the gym and to work.

0:27:270:27:31

-The one thing I don't have to do

-is think very much...

0:27:310:27:35

-..because the regime is so strict.

0:27:350:27:37

-But it does take time.

0:27:380:27:40

-I'm baking white fish, boiling green

-vegetables and frying tofu.

0:27:410:27:45

-It's all then packed into plastic

-boxes, to my shame.

0:27:450:27:49

-Everyone reacts when I open

-my food box.

0:27:540:27:58

-Sometimes I have sprouts with fish,

-and you can see people's faces.

0:28:010:28:07

-They must think I've completely lost

-the plot.

0:28:070:28:13

-I should have bigger muscles,

-but they're not there.

0:28:150:28:21

-Perhaps it's because this is

-the first time I've done this.

0:28:210:28:25

-That combined with the fact

-that I'm older.

0:28:250:28:30

-They're bigger than they were.

0:28:320:28:34

-When I feel positive, I think,

-"Well done, Nia!"

0:28:350:28:39

-When I feel more negative,

-and I do sometimes...

0:28:390:28:44

-..things look very dark.

0:28:480:28:50

-Sometimes I feel like

-a complete idiot.

0:28:500:28:55

-I feel like giving up.

0:28:570:28:59

-I look at myself in the mirror

-and hate what I see.

0:29:000:29:05

-I don't know what to think.

0:29:050:29:10

-So, this is a very delicate time.

0:29:110:29:13

-Because it's the make or break.

0:29:130:29:16

-If I thrive on hard work

-and feel I've done a good job...

0:29:160:29:21

-..then that's a success.

0:29:210:29:23

-If I drag my arse around

-the whole time...

0:29:230:29:26

-..that is a complete

-and utter failure.

0:29:270:29:29

-Keep working! You're not going

-to die! You will survive.

0:29:290:29:32

-Get this body working!

-Keep that head under control.

0:29:330:29:35

-Look at your time now.

0:29:360:29:37

-What did you do that for?

0:29:370:29:39

-Obviously, I'm not taking it

-seriously enough.

0:29:390:29:42

-This!

0:29:430:29:44

-Stop it! You've got to stop it.

-It's not efficient.

0:29:440:29:48

-Today I was disappointed.

0:29:490:29:50

-There is so much riding on it

-for her, for me, for the gym.

0:29:510:29:55

-At the end of the day,

-this is my reputation.

0:29:550:29:59

-Come on, shoulder blades.

0:29:590:30:01

-I do have a great deal of respect

-from people.

0:30:010:30:04

-I'm not willing to sacrifice that

-for anybody.

0:30:040:30:07

-I love Nia to bits...

0:30:070:30:09

-..but unless she pulls her thumb out

-of her backside...

0:30:090:30:12

-..things are not going to go

-from here.

0:30:130:30:15

-Good!

0:30:160:30:17

-Keep moving!

0:30:180:30:20

-Change your mindset.

-"I can do this!"

0:30:200:30:22

-Otherwise, do me and yourself

-a favour, call it a day.

0:30:220:30:26

-Her words are like a knife.

0:30:270:30:28

-What you're doing,

-to the extremes you're doing...

0:30:290:30:31

-..is about competitive bodybuilding.

0:30:320:30:34

-Take Dean as an example.

-He lives and breathes this.

0:30:340:30:37

-That's what he loves to do.

0:30:380:30:40

-He's not doing it for a programme.

-He's not doing it for ratings.

0:30:400:30:44

-He's doing it because

-it's what he loves.

0:30:440:30:46

-If these guys never get seen,

-it doesn't matter to them...

0:30:460:30:50

-..because this is what gives them

-the drive to get up every morning.

0:30:500:30:55

-As long as I have that mindset with

-you, that you're a competitor...

0:30:560:31:00

-..not a producer and director

-or presenter...

0:31:000:31:04

-..you're a competitor like

-everyone else.

0:31:040:31:06

-As long as we have that mindset

-and that respect...

0:31:060:31:10

-..I'm more than happy.

0:31:100:31:12

-She frightened me.

0:31:120:31:14

-Once again, I've learned

-that I could try harder.

0:31:140:31:19

-She talked about other women

-and how much they wanted it...

0:31:200:31:24

-..and the things they had to do.

0:31:240:31:26

-They have small children,

-they work all day...

0:31:260:31:29

-..yet they still

-get their training done.

0:31:290:31:32

-So, don't complain about your life!

0:31:320:31:36

-Just get on with it, Nia!

0:31:360:31:38

-As Leica said, JFT.

0:31:380:31:42

-"J" is for just

-and "t" is for train.

0:31:430:31:47

-You can guess the word

-in the middle!

0:31:470:31:52

-The following day I return

-for my first posing lesson.

0:31:550:31:59

-To learn how to exhibit the body

-on stage.

0:31:590:32:03

-The red lipstick has come out.

0:32:040:32:06

-What I usually do

-when I'm nervous...

0:32:070:32:09

-..is dig out my nicest clothes

-and wear those.

0:32:090:32:14

-But, in this case,

-it's slightly different.

0:32:140:32:20

-Such things don't count at all.

0:32:200:32:24

-I'll be wearing practically nothing

-when I'm on stage.

0:32:260:32:30

-It'll just be this. I'll be wearing

-less than I am now.

0:32:350:32:39

-I'm sure this is how Daniel felt

-on his way to the lion's den.

0:32:410:32:45

-There's nothing to be scared about.

0:32:460:32:48

-Try those and see how we go.

0:32:480:32:50

-I love having new shoes.

0:32:500:32:53

-They make my legs look a bit longer.

0:32:540:32:55

-They make my legs look a bit longer.

-

-Absolutely right.

0:32:550:32:57

-The first thing I do is rotate.

0:32:580:33:00

-So straightaway my waist

-looks smaller.

0:33:000:33:03

-What we're trying to do is to show

-the body as an X shape.

0:33:050:33:08

-That's the ideal.

0:33:090:33:10

-Wide shoulders and knees

-and a narrow trunk.

0:33:110:33:14

-That's better.

0:33:180:33:19

-I can see that in your vest.

0:33:190:33:21

-It's smoke and mirrors.

0:33:230:33:25

-Manipulate my physique to make it

-look the best it can be.

0:33:250:33:29

-Two boobs, two shoulders

-to the judges.

0:33:290:33:32

-Go on! There you go.

-Can you see the back work?

0:33:330:33:36

-Posing isn't easy.

0:33:360:33:38

-You look at yourself

-and just see the flaws.

0:33:380:33:42

-Don't worry, don't worry!

0:33:450:33:47

-You old tart! Come on.

0:33:470:33:49

-You can do this. Absolutely 100%.

0:33:510:33:55

-The red lipstick is back

-in the drawer.

0:33:570:33:59

-I've nothing to hide behind now.

0:33:590:34:01

-I just have to work hard.

0:34:020:34:03

-Every day, Leica is pushing me

-beyond what I thought was hard work.

0:34:040:34:08

-It just shows how important it is

-to push yourself.

0:34:090:34:13

-But you need someone to push you

-so that you realize...

0:34:130:34:17

-..that you haven't been pushing

-yourself enough.

0:34:170:34:21

-23 days to go.

0:34:210:34:22

-I have to put my back into it

-and push the boundaries.

0:34:230:34:26

-More weights, and heavier weights.

0:34:270:34:31

-Rowing hard. Rowing fast.

0:34:310:34:34

-It's all about what I put in my body

-and what I do with my body.

0:34:350:34:40

-Moving forward.

0:34:410:34:43

-Today blew me away.

-Absolutely blew me away.

0:34:470:34:51

-It's such a short time.

0:34:510:34:54

-I've remembered what she came in

-like, where she's gone...

0:34:540:34:59

-..where she is,

-but where she's going.

0:34:590:35:02

-Today, the competitive bite...

0:35:020:35:08

-..has started to itch.

0:35:080:35:11

-I haven't told anyone this.

0:35:120:35:14

-But I'd be delighted

-to get anything.

0:35:170:35:20

-To be in the final line-up...

0:35:230:35:25

-..or to win!

-It's autumn once again.

0:35:440:35:47

-It's been a year and a half

-of preparation for tomorrow.

0:35:470:35:51

-It's the bodybuilding competition

-in Birmingham.

0:35:510:35:54

-Through it all, my family has been a

-tower of strength in the background.

0:36:000:36:05

-But tomorrow,

-they'll be in the front row.

0:36:050:36:08

-I'll need those.

-Put them in that bag.

0:36:090:36:11

-Well, everyone except my elder son,

-Dafs...

0:36:120:36:15

-..who is six thousand miles away

-in Africa.

0:36:150:36:18

-But his wife, Leanne has brought

-Efan and Trystan...

0:36:180:36:21

-..and my younger son, Ben,

-is also on team Ceidiog!

0:36:220:36:24

-Not forgetting, of course,

-my partner, Tony.

0:36:250:36:28

-It's my big day!

0:36:280:36:30

-That goes on the front seat,

-and that can go on the back seat.

0:36:300:36:34

-Right, so long!

0:36:370:36:39

-On the way, I'm going to call at the

-gym for one last session with Leica.

0:36:410:36:46

-And to see my friends,

-Colin and Eleri.

0:36:460:36:49

-I'm putting it on Instagram that

-you're both in your sixties...

0:36:490:36:53

-..and you're competing this weekend.

0:36:530:36:56

-The difference in you is incredible.

0:37:060:37:09

-I never thought I'd have muscles

-in my back.

0:37:110:37:13

-Quarter turn to the right.

0:37:140:37:15

-I thought it was mission impossible.

0:37:220:37:24

-Did you?

0:37:240:37:26

-Yes.

0:37:260:37:27

-But you've done brilliantly.

-I'm so proud of you. Honestly!

0:37:270:37:31

-Oh my God!

0:37:310:37:33

-Honest to God! Well done!

0:37:330:37:35

-Well, thank you.

0:37:360:37:37

-I've gotta get out!

0:37:380:37:39

-Oh, my God!

0:37:420:37:44

-It came as a huge surprise that

-Leica was so pleased with me.

0:37:470:37:53

-A nice surprise.

0:37:540:37:55

-She's made me feel

-on top of the world.

0:37:550:37:58

-I feel very confident, actually.

0:37:590:38:02

-It's made me excited,

-because anything is possible.

0:38:030:38:09

-But you have to be determined

-like you are.

0:38:090:38:13

-I'm so proud of you.

-I'm proud to call you my friend.

0:38:130:38:16

-It's going to be amazing.

0:38:160:38:18

-Oh my giddy aunt!

0:38:180:38:21

-Thank you!

0:38:210:38:23

-Help smash it out of the park!

0:38:250:38:27

-Thank you, both of you.

0:38:270:38:29

-The support of Eleri and Karen

-is invaluable.

0:38:290:38:32

-But I have to go to Birmingham.

0:38:320:38:34

-The first stop when I get there

-will be to get the fake tan.

0:38:360:38:41

-Everyone says that it makes you

-look better.

0:38:410:38:46

-It's cold and it's smelly.

0:38:500:38:52

-I'll be smelly in the morning too.

0:38:520:38:55

-Because I'm not allowed to wash

-after this.

0:38:550:38:58

-Just one more uncomfortable night.

0:39:020:39:04

-I never thought that I'd be here

-at this time in my life.

0:39:130:39:18

-Everyone here has the same colour

-tan as me, a little orange.

0:39:200:39:26

-I do feel that I belong here.

0:39:270:39:29

-I'm glad now of the hard work

-that has allowed me...

0:39:300:39:33

-..to present myself

-to the competition judges.

0:39:330:39:36

-223, please.

0:39:370:39:38

-Thank you!

-I've dreamt of this moment.

0:39:390:39:42

-Is that it?

0:39:430:39:45

-Yes, you're registered.

0:39:450:39:46

-Yes, you're registered.

-

-Fantastic. Thank you.

0:39:460:39:48

-I feel very proud to be here

-at a meeting of athletes.

0:39:500:39:55

-Good luck in the competition.

-I'm sorry I can't be there.

0:40:020:40:08

-I know you'll be amazing.

0:40:080:40:12

-I hope it all goes well.

0:40:120:40:15

-I'm sending you my love all the way

-from West Africa.

0:40:150:40:20

-Love you. Bye!

0:40:200:40:22

-I think, out of everyone,

-Dafs is the one who understands.

0:40:220:40:27

-He also goes to the gym.

0:40:300:40:31

-My brother has arrived.

-I want to go and see him.

0:40:320:40:35

-You look gorgeous!

0:40:380:40:40

-You're looking great.

0:40:430:40:45

-I feel pretty awful at the moment.

0:40:450:40:47

-You'll look better in a bikini.

0:40:470:40:49

-Ohh! Ger!

0:40:490:40:52

-Backstage is rife with tiny bikinis

-and huge muscles.

0:40:540:40:59

-There are hundreds going on stage.

0:41:000:41:02

-At four o'clock,

-I'll be one of them.

0:41:030:41:06

-If I do this,

-you can see the muscles.

0:41:100:41:12

-My body is very brown as if I've

-been in the Caribbean for months.

0:41:140:41:19

-I'm happy with that.

0:41:190:41:21

-It definitely helps...

0:41:210:41:24

-..to show the shape of the muscles.

0:41:240:41:28

-At this moment, I don't feel ready

-to get up on the stage.

0:41:330:41:37

-But perhaps I'll feel differently...

0:41:370:41:42

-..after my hair and make-up's

-been done.

0:41:420:41:45

-It's a long day.

0:41:450:41:47

-I think I'm the oldest person

-who's appearing on stage today.

0:41:480:41:52

-Obviously, I feel a little old.

0:41:530:41:55

-If people think that

-this side of it...

0:41:560:42:00

-..is superficial and narcissistic

-and it's just about looking good...

0:42:010:42:06

-..remember all the hard work...

0:42:070:42:09

-..that every one of these athletes

-has put in.

0:42:100:42:12

-Many of them have done much more

-than me and for far longer.

0:42:130:42:17

-As the various categories perform...

0:42:180:42:21

-..the family wait patiently for

-the Bikini Masters in Category E.

0:42:220:42:27

-I'm wondering about everyone

-and what they're thinking.

0:42:280:42:32

-I know that Trystan feels

-a little uncomfortable about it.

0:42:320:42:37

-Are you okay?

0:42:420:42:44

-Do you want to go and see them?

0:42:440:42:45

-Do you want to go and see them?

-

-No.

0:42:450:42:47

-It's a big step.

0:42:520:42:53

-Yes, but they're very important.

0:42:530:42:57

-I don't want to...

0:42:590:43:01

-Trystan is embarrassed enough

-already.

0:43:020:43:05

-I came out here and saw the women

-with their huge earrings.

0:43:160:43:22

-I felt a bit jealous.

0:43:240:43:27

-In real life, this would be

-a little over the top.

0:43:270:43:32

-Just a touch.

0:43:330:43:34

-But here...

0:43:340:43:37

-..I feel underdressed.

0:43:390:43:40

-Whit-whew!

0:43:420:43:43

-I know that voice!

0:43:440:43:46

-It's Catrin!

0:43:460:43:48

-Oh my God! I can feel everything.

0:43:490:43:52

-It's smoke and mirrors, Leica says.

0:43:530:43:55

-If you go like this,

-it brings out the delts.

0:43:560:44:00

-They're all tricks that help a lot.

0:44:000:44:04

-All these women

-have wonderful bodies.

0:44:050:44:08

-But, Nia, they don't have faces

-like yours.

0:44:090:44:12

-Can I take a picture with you?

0:44:230:44:25

-Please do.

0:44:250:44:27

-What's your name?

0:44:270:44:28

-What's your name?

-

-Sally.

0:44:280:44:29

-You are?

0:44:290:44:29

-You are?

-

-Nia.

0:44:290:44:31

-Everyone told me that people would

-be nice, but I didn't believe it.

0:44:310:44:35

-I thought they'd be horrible.

0:44:360:44:38

-But it's true. People are nice.

0:44:380:44:42

-You don't know what they're really

-thinking, of course!

0:44:440:44:47

-I don't mind people

-being nice to me!

0:44:490:44:51

-She looks amazing!

0:44:510:44:53

-I have to practise my poses

-to get the focus right.

0:44:530:44:58

-I'll be on in about

-a quarter of an hour.

0:45:070:45:09

-I've reached the point of no return.

0:45:110:45:15

-From here on, I have to do it.

0:45:150:45:19

-This is the best I can do.

0:45:250:45:27

-This is the best I can do today.

0:45:290:45:31

-222, Donna!

0:45:370:45:39

-223!

0:45:410:45:42

-I'm glad I put myself forward

-for this.

0:45:470:45:51

-Because it's really helped me...

0:45:510:45:54

-..to grow physically, mentally

-and spiritually...

0:45:540:45:58

-..whatever happens on stage.

0:45:590:46:01

-When I started on this challenge...

0:46:130:46:17

-..I thought I was just going

-to find out...

0:46:170:46:21

-..whether I could grow my muscles

-at all.

0:46:220:46:25

-But, as I went through

-the experience...

0:46:250:46:29

-..I've seen my body look younger

-and younger.

0:46:290:46:35

-Unexpectedly, I'm beginning

-to like that a lot.

0:46:370:46:41

-I realized that I even feel younger

-than I did before.

0:46:410:46:47

-I move quicker...

0:46:480:46:50

-..and my brain works quickly too

-at times.

0:46:500:46:55

-So I'm aware that a big change

-has taken place.

0:46:560:47:00

-That pleased me greatly.

0:47:020:47:04

-This has been very much a life

-changing experience for her.

0:47:110:47:15

-I know 100% that this

-is just the beginning.

0:47:150:47:18

-She's bought into it completely.

0:47:180:47:21

-Did I think we'd get there?

0:47:220:47:23

-No.

0:47:230:47:25

-You've done it!

0:47:290:47:30

-You did it!

0:47:300:47:32

-I'm proud of you.

0:47:330:47:35

-Well done, Nia!

0:47:360:47:37

-I lost a contact lens!

0:47:400:47:41

-It's alright. We can still see you.

0:47:430:47:45

-Where are my glasses?!

0:47:450:47:48

-Are you okay, Tryst?

0:47:500:47:52

-It was a bigger challenge for you

-than for anyone.
