Bodybuilder and physique competitor Cindy Legare took home a second place trophy at the 2014 Sandra Wickham Fall Classic last weekend.
This was the competitionâ€™s 11th annual event, held at the Massey Theatre in New Westminster.
â€œMastering your mind and becoming the best version of you â€“ now thatâ€™s the real prize,â€ Legare said.
â€œItâ€™s about discipline,â€ she added, â€œand staying the course when your mood doesnâ€™t want toâ€¦ I enjoy the process and learning how to dial it in better, smarter â€“ not harder.â€
A certified sports nutrition advisor and personal trainer, Legare said her goal throughout her contest preparation was to stay true to the health values that she emphasizes to her clients.
â€œMy mission was to stand on stage without jeopardizing my health, to do no â€˜traditionalâ€™ cardio to get to stage ready, and to keep my contest diet all nutrient dense and all about health and wellness,â€ she said. â€œMission accomplished.â€
Legareâ€™s second place Masterâ€™s Physique category result has earned her a spot to compete at B.C.â€™s provincial championships in June of next year.
She noted that sheâ€™s excited to be competing again.
She added that she hopes to â€œdial it inâ€ with some more conditioning while continuing her mission to â€œshine on stage with health, wellness and dedication.â€
The passion and hard work from all competitors on the stage was apparent.
â€œThis weekendâ€™s Sandra Wickham competitors are all champions,â€ said Legare.
