Lo­cal body builders put on a show

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

A quar­tet of Whit­sun­day body builders has put the re­gion on the map.

Wendy Whi­b­ley, Car­men Lee, Kyle McCor­mack and Jake Gor­don all trav­elled north on the week­end to take part in INBA Tropix Townsville.

Kyle man­aged to win his teenage di­vi­sion and place fourth in the novice men, while Gor­don fin­ished one place bet­ter in third.

All four body builders, who all work at Air­lie Fit­ness and Bet­ter Body Nu­tri­tion, de­serve praise for their com­mit- ment to a strin­gent regime of di­et­ing and train­ing, ac­cord­ing to Air­lie Fit­ness’ manager Corey Whi­b­ley.

“It’s months and months of com­mit­ment. They were al­ready do­ing a lot of train­ing but there’s also very strict di­et­ing and cut­ting,” he said.

“They’ve been train­ing for a good 12 weeks but there has been some ex­treme dis­ci­pline in the last week or two when they needed to shred up for the com­pe­ti­tion.”

Gor­don, Car­men and Wendy were all first-time com­peti­tors and are ex­pected to re­turn to next year’s event bet­ter than ever.
