2017 NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural ProAm Bodybuilding, Figure, Physique and Bikini Classic – Super Pro Qualifier

Birmingham, Alabama, July 8th

Thirty-seven outstanding men and women athletes came from Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, Idaho, Texas and Alabama to vie for Sculptured Award Medallions and NGA Pro Cards at the 10th annual 2017 NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural Bodybuilding, Figure, Physique and Bikini Classic – Super Pro Qualifier and the fifth annual NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural Master Pro Bodybuilding Classic in Birmingham, Alabama.

The athletes were pleased as we returned to Birmingham for the seventh year to Homewood High School with its great stage, sound system and dramatic lighting, the pump up area, the back stage refreshments and their 2017 NGA “Old Navy’ Classic sports bag with the official 2017 show t-shirt and a Snickers bar.

The contest started on time and ran smoothly. It was a “competitor’s show,” run by competitors who know what athletes want and need. Many of the competitors were repeat contestants from last year and many said they would like to come back next year for the 11th annual 2018 NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural ProAm Classic on June 30, 2018. Others said they would encourage their competitor friends to join them on stage. As always, it was a fun show. And next year’s 11th Anniversary show will be our best one yet.

In addition to the NGA ‘Old Navy’ Open amateur show, six Master Pro bodybuilders and three Grand Master Pro bodybuilders were on stage to compete in the NGA ‘Old Navy’ Natural Master Pro Bodybuilding Classic. Darryle Lee from Spring Hill, TN repeated his Men’s Master Pro Bodybuilding win from last year while NGA Pro, Paul Redmer from Acworth, GA won the Grand Master Pro title.

In the amateur competition, NGA Pro Card eligible classes needed five or more competitors entered for the Open Division and five or more competitors entered for the Masters Division. NGA Pro Cards were awarded to six athletes in this Super Pro Qualifier.

Robert Zius from Orlando, FL won the Men’s Classic Bodybuilding Physique class, the Open Bodybuilding Middleweight Class and the Bodybuilding Overall title. Jared Lyvers from Chelsea, AL took home the second NGA Pro Card awarded in the new Classic Bodybuilding Physique Class. Carson Towers from Birmingham won the Open Men’s Physique Lightweight Class and Brandon Cobia from Hoover, AL took the Open Men’s Physique Heavyweight title and went on the win the Men’s Open Physique Overall. Bikini Open and Bikini Masters Champion, Shasta Brock from Birmingham won her NGA Open Bikini Pro Card.

Congratulations to our new NGA Pros!
