Local body builder to compete at Master Series Natural Classic in Halifax

A Chaleur region body-builder will travel to Halifax this weekend for the Master Series Natural Classic.

Jean-Francois Lagace says approximately 60 of the top athletes from across the Maritimes will be there, and that means stiff competition.

This is the fifth body-building competition for Lagace who has been working out for nearly 18 years and has been preparing for this competition for 14 weeks.

Lagace says a good performance at this contest, which is part of the newly formed Canadian Physique Alliance, could earn him a ticket to national qualifiers and result in a pro-card.

Lagace will be competing in the Masters category, which is for athletes 40 years of age and up.
