With 600+ ath­letes com­pet­ing at the 2016 Fit­ness Amer­ica™ Week­end one can only imag­ine the ex­cite­ment and the elec­tric at­mos­phere at the Golden Nugget Ho­tel and Casino. The mag­nif­i­cent stage was set to pro­vide the per­fect back drop for the finest Nat­u­ral

Australian Natural Bodz - - Fitness America Weekend -

The en­ergy is al­ways off the scale in Las Ve­gas, it is with­out doubt one of the most ex­cit­ing lo­ca­tions in the world to host a Body­build­ing and Fit­ness Event. The Fit­ness Amer­ica™ Week­end has been run­ning for over 25 years in Ve­gas, it has grown to be­come the ab­so­lute pinnacle of Nat­u­ral Body­build­ing and Fit­ness Events on the planet, at­tract­ing well over 600 of the finest Nat­u­ral Ath­letes each year. Our 2016 Team Mem­bers were ready to show the rest of the World what they were made of. We had a great ar­ray of ath­letes com­pet­ing across the two day event in­clud­ing Body­build­ing, Fig­ure, Physique, Model and Bikini. This show is not an easy show to win, it is a true World Ti­tle and each and every com­peti­tor is out to tak e top hon­ours for their Team and Coun­try. Ath­letes from the UK, France, In­dia, Mid­dle East, Ja­pan, Fin­land, Canada, New Zealand, Korea and of course Aus­tralia are just some of the par­tic­i­pat­ing Coun­tries! Korea al­ways brings an ex­tremely strong team with close to one hun­dred ath­letes! My Wife and I have been mak­ing the Ve­gas jour­ney since 2009 and it is al­ways a plea­sure to not only share each ath­letes suc­cess but also the whole Las Ve­gas ex­pe­ri­ence. In all due re­spect we are proud of each and every one of our Team Mem­bers as they all rep­re­sent A us­tralia with pride and style. Sure not every­one is go­ing to win or place, but thats not the point. This is about com­ing to­gether, build­ing new friend­ships, shar­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence from the 12 hour flight, the city of Las Ve­gas, to step­ping onto one of the big­gest Nat­u­ral Event Stages in the world. It’s the en­tire ex­pe­ri­ence! Prob­a­bly the best way for me to express and re­flect on the 2016 show is through the amaz­ing im­ages we cap­tured over the course of the event. They say a pic­ture is worth a thou­sand words. In this in­stance that say­ing could not be fur­ther from the truth as you will see through­out the fol­low­ing 20 pages of im­agery. I have listed names and plac­ings where ap­pli­ca­ble but as I said each and every ath­lete should be in­cred­i­bly proud of their achieve­ments and with­out ques­tion we are look­ing for­ward to do­ing it all again on Novem­ber 17-18 for the 2017 Fit­ness Amer­ica™ Week­end.
