This is one of our close friends Ants, knowing each other for years we have always bounced ideas back & forth between each other in regards to everything bodybuilding. When Ants decided to compete for the first time it was only natural that we jumped on board to support him throughout the process. Setting a date & devising a plan to get from point A to point B we knew exactly what needed to be done & how we were going to achieve this. Fortnightly check ins to discuss how he was feeling, how he was looking, training & cardio out put & making small nutritional changes slowly but surely he dialed it in, in the final stages of comp prep Ants & his wife Debs would travel the 2hours down to New Plymouth to catch up with us where we would assess his body composition, practice his posing to ensure impeccable stage presentation & discuss any finer adjustments with nutrition & training. When your working with someone as dedicated as Ants it really makes for a very smooth process, his tireless work ethic & 150% commitment to the end result is second to none. Ants first competition was the 2012 NZIFBB Waikato Champs – a massive show with nearly 80 competitors & a very high level of athletes, Ants took 1st place in a stacked Novice mens 80-90kg class & came a very close runner up in the Masters 40+ to an ex Mr NZ overall champion, huge achievement !! Two weeks later at the NZIFBB Nationals Ants followed these placings up becoming the Novice 80-90kg National Champ !! Absolutely stoked to have been able to play a small part in Ants success on the stage, we’re also very excited at the prospect of working with Ants again in the future, as the experience & practical application of information we have gained we will be bringing a leaner, fuller even freakier Ants to the stage!!
