On July 13, local athlete, martial arts teacher and personal trainer Alicia Fennell participated in the WBFF (world bodybuilding and fitness federation) at the River Rock Casino in Richmond. The event hosted upwards of 120 competitors and boasts one of the largest international organizations in the world for fitness and bodybuilding.

Fennell competed in two categories: figure (muscle tone, proportion, definition and overall show of strength while maintaining a womanly physique) and fitness (overall fitness, leanness and health of the competitor). Scores were based on physique (40 per cent), marketability (40 per cent) and stage presence (20 per cent).

This was Fennell’s first time competing in a physique and fitness competition. She placed second in fitness and third in the figure category.

The experience allowed her to break down diet and exercise to a fine-tuned science, losing five per cent body fat in three months.

She thanks Axe capoeira and her community in the Comox Valley, including clients at Energia fitness for their support and positive encouragement.

Train with Fennell at the Comox Rec Centre or calling (250) 898-7918, Energia Fitness.
