Contest Prep Program

As a natural bodybuilder, I know how it feels to not know how to properly prep for a competition.

For my first contest prep I had no idea what I was doing. 

I had a deep desire to figure out how to prepare for competition on my own, but the information I received from the internet did not allow me to bring my best physique to the stage.

After the shows were over, I did my research on how to properly prepare for bodybuilding competition.  I brought a much improved physique to the stage in year 2 and placed much higher against better competition.

In year 4, I was able to place top 5 (5 out of 12) in a highly competitive men’s middleweight division, which produced 2 future natural professional bodybuilders.

My contest record is below:

1) 2011 Mr. Natural Philadelphia: 7th out 12 in the Open Lightweight Class

2) 2011 Beyond Nutrition Natural: 7th out of 11 in the Open Tall Class

3) 2012 Beyond Nutrition Natural: 9th out of 9 in the Open Tall Class

4) 2012 Mr. Natural Philadelphia: 6th out of 12 in the Open Middleweight Class

5) 2014 Mr. Natural Philadelphia: 5th out of 12 in the Open Middleweight Class *

6) 2014 OCB Jersey Natural Open: 6th out of 12 in the Open Tall Class

* Top 5 finish in class.  Placed.

A few of my close friends, who I assisted in their contest prep, have placed in shows as well.  It was at this point I started to focus on becoming a contest prep coach.

On May 4th, 2019, 8 years after my bodybuilding journey started, I successfully coached my first ever overall winner and champion. 

In her first-ever competition, Johanna Blume won debut and open figure at the 2019 Mr/Ms. Natural Philadelphia.

My training systems have been featured on top bodybuilding websites such as T-Nation and Muscle & Strength.  We will focus on building your weak areas and developing a natural and balanced physique.  Trying in vain to “get big” at all costs is not bodybuilding.

Contest Prep Nutrition

Without a proper nutrition plan, your dreams of becoming lean and ripped will remain dreams.  Your diet will set up to help you maximize your hard-earned muscle mass and eliminate body fat.
