I never realized the level of training and dedication that goes into body-building competitions. A recent trip to Venice Beach, California turned me around…and inspired me to visit my local gym on a more regular basis!

Thanks to Joe Wheatley Productions for giving me access. Hats off to all these professionals who let me photograph them as they prepped for the competition. You are all amazing people and I admire you.

It was fun and I look forward to seeing you again next year!

Stay healthy,

Cirina
