About November 2017

On the cover this month: Alexandre Villeneuve, 2017 Physique Canada Men’s Bodybuilding Champion. As one of Physique Canada’s most-consistent competitors, this recent win was especially satisfying for Alexandre, since he narrowly lost the overall title to Olivier Martel at the 2017 National Classic, which was in July. For the Canadian Championships, Alexandre came in ten pounds lighter than at the National Classic, yet he actually looked bigger on the stage due to his increased definition and improvement in shape.

As we’ve done for the past couple of years, at this time we look back at the previous year’s female fitness models and select the ten best. Straightforward enough? But what’s different about our list compared to most other lists is that we don’t rank the ten who have been chosen according to excellence; instead, we feel that every woman on this prestigious list deserves equal recognition, so we present them as the ten best and leave it at that., The list is simply arranged alphabetically by last name.
