JULY ISSUE IS LIVE: (link in bio!!)
This issue is dedicated to the late Jim Morris. Athlete, promoter, a business partner in Jamor Enterprises, and friend. We have stories to share and pictures full of memories in our issue this month. PLEASE SHARE this issue in honour of the amazing life he led and contributions he made to the Ontario Physique Association. We also have an amazing transformation story of an athlete who went from being nearly paralyzed to stepping on stage at only 18! As usual, you can find show videos, Instagram features, posing tips and more!

Wow! I cannot believe the love and support I have received leading up to this show!
This has been an amazing experience for my first time at the CBBF Nationals: placing 4th in my class is a huge honour!! The weeks and months of hard work that all of these athletes have had to put themselves through all deserves recognition and huge congratulations! I also hope everyone who was volunteering for this show knows how much impact they have on athletes in these shows, and how much gratitude and true appreciation we have for keeping us organized and comfortable backstage as we wait for our classes-thank you so much!
I want to give so much thanks to the many outstanding supporters I have had throughout this years journey. Thank you to @absolutetouchinc for making me feel so beautiful and bronzed up on that stage. Thank you @bikinifitcanada for sponsoring my gorgeous bikini - I felt like a million bucks wearing your beautiful creation! To the beautiful girls who have kept my feet on the ground and head calm, I cannot say thank you enough for being truly amazing friends @karostrokes @toni_oconnor @becky_shesquats_2eat @wildflower.nutrition . To my family who constantly updated the Instagram feed all night, I'm sorry I kept you all waiting but am so happy to have had your eyes on me from such a distance away. Finally, @mellingmuscle you have kept me guided in the right direction, kept me in my lane and have made me feel confident for the first time in the body I have brought to stage. Even with the stress and chaos of your own show, you stayed on top of all my needs and changes leading into my night show. Thank you so much for keeping me motivated and inspired through the ups and downs of this journey!
Thank you @aroundtheopa and @canadianbodybuildingfed for the great show and incredible opportunity to compete this year!

Want to update everybody on how this weekend went! Placed just shy of top 5 in a stacked light heavyweight class this year . I think 6th or 7th. But super happy with the package myself and @ifbbiainvalliere brought to the stage . Was up an additional 3 pounds from ontarios :) . I want to thank my sponsors @muscletech and @jed_north there amazing support along with all my followers and friends 🙏❤️. 21 weeks of dieting ain't fkn easy but I love this shit. Now it's time to relax and enjoy the summer 🙏. #blessed #godfirst #fitnessmotivation #cbbfnationals #nationals2017 #fitnessmotivation #bodybuilder #bodybuilderlifestyle

Don't ever let your age dictate what you can or can't accomplish! Grandmaster bikini athlete @cindyvep placed 2nd today out of 13 competitors in her class and looked phenomenal doing it!! Congratulations Cindy! 🏆😃👙👠
