Over 1000 competitors from all around the world descended on Teaneck, NJ over the weekend of July 2, 2017 for a chance to compete in the 2017 NPC Bev Francis Team Universe Championships with the ultimate goal of bringing home an IFBB Pro Card.
A national competition, The Team Universe is one of the most intense national bodybuilding championships in the world, and we are SO proud of all of our clients that brought their blood, sweat, and tears to the competition stage.
