President Canadian Physique Alliance
Promoter Toronto Pro SuperShow
Ifbb Pro League Judge
I have been involved in every aspect there is regarding our sport of Bodybuilding and fitness.
It all started when I joined Vic Tanny’s in 1971 were I began training to compete for my first bodybuilding competition.
A year later I became a trainer for Vic Tanny’s and competed in my first Show.
I competed in bodybuilding from 1972 to 1980 where I won the Sudbury Championships and the Northern Ontario Championships, and did well in many local events, I soon realize my strength was in training, officiating and promoting the sport I loved.
I became a firefighter in 1977 my appetite for competition had me competing in the firefighter challenge called the toughest two minutes in sport, I won the Canadian Championships at the age of 40 I felt was one of my greatest accomplishments.
I purchased my own fitness center in 1990 called the Gym Fitness Centre which successfully continues today and is considered the go to place for members looking to get fit helped by trainers and of course for athletes training to compete at the Canadian Physique Alliance and the IFBB Pro League competitions.
I began my judging career in 1974 and rose to the ranks to IFBB professional Judge. I became the head judge for my provincial Association in 1983
Became a National judge in 1984
Judged the North Americans in 1993 in Mexico
And became an IFBB pro judge 1995
Judging the IFBB Jan tana, Atlantic city pro, Minnesota pro show, Tampa pro, New York pro and many other professional events, I was able to adapt to the changes in the sport and the new directions as more and more categories were being added.
Began judging the Arnold Classic pro show 1999
Judging the Olympia every year since 2003 when it was held at the Mandala Bay hotel Las Vegas.
I now Head judge Vancouver IFBB Pro League Championships
With A total of 40 years of judging experience, I feel confident and comfortable when ask to judge any of the events required by the IFBB Pro league president Mr Jim Manion. All the while judging I felt a great passion to giving back to the sport and began promoting local events in my community. My first event only had about 25 men bodybuilding competitors. Quite a difference from the provincial championships held in 2017 at the Toronto Pro SuperShow with Over 450 competitors and 50 different classes and 8 categories. Nine years ago, in 2010 I promoted the first Toronto Pro SuperShow competition with the IFBB Pro league. It has been quite the ride but the success of this SuperShow has evolved to be the largest extreme sport and fitness expo in Canada. The IBB Pro League competition has every category allowed by the IFBB pro league, the only one of its kind in North America.
On our tenth anniversary we will be hosting our third IFBB Pro Qualifier open to NPC members in the USA and competitors from around the world battling it out for that elusive IFBB Pro card. We will also be launching greatest trainer award information booth were trainers can register to battle it out in Canada to win the greatest trainer award with the finals at the 2020 Toronto Pro SuperShow..
We have come a long way in Canada, we have 62 contests in our Country with many more planned for 2020, As president of the Canadian Physique alliance I can say with confidence the future looks bright in the fitness industry and the sport that keeps us hungry to train and stay fit.
