A very proud coach, Dominick Mutascio, with Team Best Built at the 2017 NPC John Kemper Classic

We are SO excited to be kicking off the 2017 competition season by congratulating some of Best Built Fitness’ amazing female competitors that took to the stage this past Saturday, April 1st in NPC John Kemper Classic!

There were first callouts all around as our three competitors, Nicole Zenobia GrahamShindel Van Rhyn and Andrea Villalobos, displayed their hard work and reaped the rewards by qualifying for Nationals. So much of these girls’ potential comes from their powerful mindsets toward training and nutrition, and dedication to the sport.

Nicole Zenobia Graham was named the Overall Figure Open Champion and the Overall Figure Novice Champion.

Shindel Van Rhyn was named the Bikini Masters Champion and took 2nd Place in the Bikini Open.

A huge shout out goes out to our client and Team Best Built posing mama, IFBB Pro Marie Allegro, for taking 2nd place in the Figure Master’s at the Karina Nascimento Pro Show last week in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and for always keeping our clients looking fresh to death with their posing and stage tans!!

This is the third consecutive year that a member of Team Best Built has achieved an overall win at the John Kemper Classic!! Last year, Sabah Syed commanded the stage and was titled the 2016 Overall Bikini Open Champion, while Chris Ketchum dominated as the 2016 Overall Light Heavy Weight Bodybuilding Masters Champion. In 2015, Super Heavyweight, Vincenzo Masone, took over and claimed his spot as the Overall Bodybuilding Champion.
