Good Friday was a full day of beautiful bodies strutting the stage in Rey and Pebblz Ronquilio’s top notched show for Bodybuilding, Physique, Figure and Bikini contestants.

The Jr. Stingrey young men opened the show and, I must admit, they posed like seasoned veterans. Hats off to these high schoolers. Keep it up!

In the Men’s Novice division, there were 5 lightweight, 10 middleweight and 5 heavyweight competitors. Here are the winners in each division:

Lightweight:
1st place – Edgar Agonias, Jr.

2nd place – Bradley Ramos

3rd place – Sheldon Goya

I also want to recognize a couple other competitors in this category because they caught my attention. Props to middleweight competitor Neil Akai who gets my thumbs up for having the Best Arms of the show! I also want to call attention to another young man, Justin Lopez in the middleweight class who appears to have a great foundation to build on—you go!

Next was the Women’s Physique division (a relatively new category that recognizes moderate musculature and definition—somewhat between Bodybuilding and Figure standards). Here are the results:

1st place – Shauna Perry

2nd place – Ailina Eddins

3rd place – Lisa Koehn

My final comments go out to all the competitors. I know how hard the training and diet are and, no matter what the outcome, you all deserve recognition for your hard work! Be proud of the effort you’ve made. Not everyone can handle the rigors of competition. My advice to those who want to continue to compete in Hawaii and in the sport period, review the judges scores and get feedback from the judges themselves. (Contact the Head Judge.) Most will make notes throughout the show and can offer valuable advice to help you improve. Nothing irks me more than competitors who look the same year after year, complain about their placing and never look into how they could be better. Like anything else, to do well it’s about continuous improvement.

Mahalo Rey and Pebblz for your tireless effort in putting together a grand show for all these competitors and to help the sport thrive!

*** I invite you to visit my website www.lifefitnet.com and participate in a short online survey that should take only 2-3 minutes to complete. No one’s personal, individual data is ever shared and the aggregated information is used to Build a Healthy Hawaii and better understand individual needs and preferences related to establishing healthy lifestyle habits. Mahalo for your support! :-) Lori
