UK Novice Strongman Comp 28th August 2011

On Sunday, 28th August Team Evo is travelling to the other side of the Pennines to compete in the UK Strongman Northern qualifier. An eight strong team of strongmen aims to take on the gruelling events from lorry pulls & axel presses to farmers walk.

The rest of the gym wishes Dean, Dan, Lukasz, Tom, Jordan, Adam, Scott and Danny lots of luck for the day. A good number will also be travelling with the lads for support.



2011 BNBF Northern Championships

2011 BNBF Northern

On the 7th August 2011 a team of athletes from Evolution Gym took part in the British Natural Bodybuilding Federation Northern Championships held in Manchester. The atheletes invovled were:

Jon Clark, Phil Dean, Kelly Rennie, Nicky Rodgers, Matt Ward and Steve Howarth. Also taking part but in a very different sense was Rachael Hayes who is a judge for the BNBF and Pro Bodybuilder.

The event was outstanding as usual with great organisation and support, the team was well prepared and motivated and performed brilliantly with personal successes for all.

SDC10738Jon, won the BNBF Masters title and (not surprisingly) best poser – we could all have told them that hey??, Kelly and Steve came second in their events (Figure and Heavyweights) – all three getting an invite to the British Finals in Glasgow on 18th September.

Phil has made loads of gains since his last appearance on a bodybuilding stage and looked relaxed posing well. Matt also looking good, posing well. Nicky, well, “Princess Nicky” had also improved greatly in only her second competition with much more confidence than before. All the athletes gained valuable stage time that develops and hones the confidence and image that is all important in bodybuilding shows.
