Tammie Sarkozy - Musclemania, ANB Asia Pacific Champion

In the 16 months I’ve been competing I have been fortunate enough to experience a lot of success and I am hooked…I can’t describe the feeling of being on stage. You work so hard for months and months (even years!) to try and get your body in the best condition possible. It has taught me self discipline and I honestly believe if I can go as far as to make it to stage, I can do anything! Nothing seems out of reach now!

Trish White - Figure Champion Profile

 

Trish received a call from Antonietta Jones notifying her of her selection for the ANB Team competing in Las Vegas in November 2012 and was a tad speechless… hahahah

Competing in Vegas was a dream come true as one of her goals was to compete internationally. She learnt so much and was thrilled with coming 6th against world class athletes in her field in her first ever year of competing. Stepping on that stage was surreal and one of the proudest moments of her lifeand for the first time was actually proud of herself

Mark Hogan - U90kg ANB Asia Pacific Champion

Goals and plan for the future

To represent Australia, competing overseas in an international bodybuilding event, and to continue training and competing, and remain associated with the sport of natural body building in some way. Weight training and body building has been a large part of my life, and like many others it has been a hugely positive experience. One of the best experiences I have had is the people I have met and friends I have made along the way that share the same positive outlook and energy toward strength and physical fitness.

From Open Model to Figure and back - Model Champion

Greatest Challenge:
I have never had any formal prep help with any of my competitions, in terms of diet/nutrition, training or posing (with exception for my posing for figure). My partner and I have done everything via trial and error. Also, transferring between the two divisions everything had to be altered such as my style of training and also my general overall stage presentation. I think the main thing was finding the category i was most comfortable in and doing what i wanted to do, not what everyone else thought i should do.
