“The show has seen tremendous growth since the first show back in 2013. We started off as a local show in Cape Town and since then we attracted top athletes from around the country. This year will be no different. We even have an athlete travelling from the UK to compete.

“Georgie Norval from the UK has seen the benefits at this event which gives back to the athlete like no other.

“We have fitness categories from beach bikini to fitness bikini, men’s cover model to men’s muscle model and then our full blown hardcore bodybuilders bringing their best physiques to the stage.

“There will be fitness and health companies giving you the public advice on healthier living, so come along and grab a sample or two,” said Kevin Schwartz, owner of Battle of the Titans.

Besides the prize money, several companies are on board sponsoring prizes in the various divisions.

With the increase in prize money each year, this fixture is penciled down in the diary of some of the finest male and female athletes in the country.

“The feedback is just phenominal each year, I believe we have a winning recipe and this is the main reason why the show has grown in stature. Battle of the Titans is all about giving back to the athletes and to create a stage like no other, for them to showcase their physique as they put in a lot of hard work in this sport they all have such a passion for,” said Schwartz.

The overall beach bikini, fitness bikini, cover model, and men’s muscle model walk away with R10 000. The overall men’s winner receives R35 000.
