George-Kem Classic a big hit!

Bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts from as far away as East London all the way down to the Cape, made the trip to George on the weekend of 18 July for a first of its kind in the George area, Bodybuilding and BodyFitness Championship. The show was hosted by Johan du Toit, owner of George-Kem Pharmacy who has a passion for the bodybuilding and fitness industry.

The stage was set for a showdown of muscle, with divisions catering for novice athletes all the way through to seasoned athletes. Well known IFBB athlete and Cape Town resident, Werlou van Tonder weighing in at 101kg stole the limelight as he blew his competition away with his sheer size, and in doing so took home a cheque for R6 000.

Congratulations go out to Johan and his Team for a well organized and smooth running show. We look forward to another successful event in 2010.

As part of the ‘festivities” for the weekend, Muscle Junkies Chris ‘Quadzilla’ Fitzpatrick and Mario van Biljon held a training seminar where they demonstrated training technique and answered questions from interested on lookers. This proved to be extremely beneficial to the gym goers who attended the training session.
