Airman 1st Class Molly Moloney, 355th Fighter Wing general law paralegal, competed in the National Physique Committee Natural Outlaw Competition at the Fox Theater in Tucson, March 15.

The NPC Natural Outlaw Competition is for both men and women wanting to compete in body building, figure, fitness, bikini and physique.

Moloney decided six months ago that she wanted to participate in the bikini fitness division of the competition.

“I chose to compete as a fitness goal in order to further motivate myself to remain fit to fight,” said Moloney.

For the past six months, Moloney has been on a strict meal plan, as well as a structured workout schedule provided by her trainers in preparation for the competition.

“I only ate clean foods, nothing processed or out of a package. My trainer would update my meal plan almost weekly, but only minimal changes like lowering the amount of oatmeal. I also lifted for at least two hours a day and did cardio for about an hour,” Moloney said.

Moloney didn’t find it difficult to commit to her work out plan. It was the food that posed a problem.

“It was hard staying with the meal plan when you were having a bad day and want to eat chocolate,” Moloney said.

In addition to her workouts, Moloney had to find time for posing practice.

“Posing practice is a little weird, because you have to do it in heels, so it was really hard to get it down. But after a while, it becomes natural. I did posing practice two or three times a week. A lot of people don’t do it that often, but because it was my first competition I wanted to make sure it was good,” Moloney said.

Even though Moloney dedicated six months to physical training, the weekend of the competition required her Air Force time management skills and flexibility.

“The morning of the competition I had to have a team meeting followed by having my hair and makeup done, as well as getting my spray tan touched up. We were only allowed to eat fish and asparagus, as well as drink only one bottle of water,” Moloney said.

After the initial prepping, Moloney practiced back stage with the fellow contestants before the prejudging started.

“Prejudging is where you go out on stage in a group, so the judges can see you next to the other contestants. After that you get a break, followed by finals and then awards,” Moloney said.

Moloney expected to be nervous, since this was her first competition, however, her teammates as well as the other contestants were extremely nice and supportive.

“It’s a really good community, everybody is positive and supportive of each other in whatever decisions you make and everyone is really helpful,” Moloney said.

Moloney placed first in the bikini fitness division and fifth in her overall class. She would like to thank her coaches for helping her along the way and for all of their support.

Due to the overall success and the reward of being ready for the competition, Moloney plans on continuing her fitness regimen and competing again later in the year.
