Aldergrove bodybuilder lit up New West stage

Bodybuilder and physique competitor Cindy Legare took home a second place trophy at the 2014 Sandra Wickham Fall Classic last weekend.  

This was the competition’s 11th annual event, held at the Massey Theatre in New Westminster.

“Mastering your mind and becoming the best version of you – now that’s the real prize,” Legare said.

“It’s about discipline,” she added, “and staying the course when your mood doesn’t want to… I enjoy the process and learning how to dial it in better, smarter – not harder.”

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.  

“My mission was to stand on stage without jeopardizing my health, to do no ‘traditional’ cardio to get to stage ready, and to keep my contest diet all nutrient dense and all about health and wellness,” she said. “Mission accomplished.”

Legare’s second place Master’s Physique category result has earned her a spot to compete at B.C.’s provincial championships in June of next year.  

She noted that she’s excited to be competing again.

She added that she hopes to “dial it in” with some more conditioning while continuing her mission to “shine on stage with health, wellness and dedication.”  

The passion and hard work from all competitors on the stage was apparent.  

“This weekend’s Sandra Wickham competitors are all champions,” said Legare.
