Amateur bodybuilders get chance to show their muscles and moves

The British Columbia Amateur Bodybuilding Association hosts an open regional show in Victoria in August

It’s been a decade but Victoria will once again host a British Columbia Amateur Bodybuilding Association (BCABBA) show at the McPherson Playhouse on August 15.

This show offers amateur athletes from across the province the opportunity to compete in an open regional show in the following categories; Fitness, Figure, Bikini, Physique, and Bodybuilding.

With the growth of the sport across the province, the Vancouver Island show was added to the 2015 lineup. Promoters Corey Swiergosz and Jennifer Randall welcome everyone to participate in this regional show to qualify for the 2016 BC Championship that will be held in the lower mainland.

The McPherson Playhouse in Centennial Square will be the venue for this inaugural event. Confirmed Guest Posers for the event are IFBB Pro Bodybuilder Jose Raymond and IFBB Pro Women’s Bodybuilder Shannon Courtney.

Accompanying the show itself will be an expo featuring local businesses, supplement companies, gyms, and health related services.

To compete in the show please refer to the BCABBA website.

Ticket information will be released via the McPherson Box office on January 23.
