THE inaugural Strength and Powerlifting event, hosted by the Body Fuel Muscle and Fitness Centre, held on Saturday was hailed as a success by all those in attendance, with many marvelling at the support given to their fellow weightlifters in their attempts to push their bodies to the limit.

All those eager to test their grit were invited, regardless of what gym they belonged to, and medical personnel were on site to ensure that everything went on smoothly.

Owner of the gym Vashen Moodley said that his mission regarding the competition, and owning the gym in general, was to uplift the community and be an instrument in guiding youngsters away from life’s negativity and into a rewarding sport.

“Through this competition we strived to create an atmosphere of challenge, experience and motivation and we intend to build a community of strong men and women both mentally and physically,” said Moodley.

Moodley noted that it was an encouraging sight to behold so many young men willing to showcase their strength while others spurred them on in support, stating that this is the true spirit of bodybuilding.
