Saturday, August 25th marked the day of the first NPC Jay Cutler Classic bodybuilding and physique competition, held in Rockville, MD, and the Colosseum Gym had a strong showing.
Personal Trainer David Johnston helped train and prep four athletes for the August show. All four placed within the top five of their class, a terrific achievement given that three were first-time competitors.
Jim Driskell, ripped to the bone, took 3rd in the Men’s Open Lightweight division. PK, another first-time competitor, took 5th out of 20 in the Men’s Physique Class A division. Hannah Kim, also hitting the stage for the first time, placed 4th out of 20 in the Bikini Class A division. Last but not least, Tracy Nash won the Women’s Open Bodybuilding Lightweight division, and then went on to win the Women’s Bodybuilding Overall title. Congratulations to all four of you, and to David Johnston with more wins on the wall! Colosseum Gym is rapidly proving to be a serious training ground for those interested in physique competition.
To that end, Colosseum Gym will be sponsoring a booth at the 3rd and final Maryland NPC show of the year, the Shawn Ray Classic, held on Saturday, October 27th, 2012 in Towson, MD. Colosseum will soon be featuring two new trainers that both compete and help to prepare other competitors, Stacy Wig and Dave Shutler. Stacy Wig is an IFBB Pro Fitness competitor, an active NPC judge, and has helped to prep dozens of men and women and get them into the best shape of their lives. Dave Shutler competes in both Men’s Physique and Bodybuilding, as well as working in fitness modeling, and has also helped numerous others hit the stage in amazing shape.
Colosseum Gym is one of the last gyms in the area friendly to serious training, be that kettlebell classes, powerlifting, or bodybuilding. We are proud to host a booth at the October 27th Shawn Ray Classic, and train David Johnston plans on bringing in between 8 and 12 competitors– all in the best shape of their lives.
