Canada's Leading Ladies

  • Written by Doug Schneider

Nadia Moussa is featured on our cover this month and in the image at the top of this page – she is currently one of this country’s leading ladies insofar as the women’s muscular physique (aka figure) discipline goes. Ditto for Marie-Ève Delorme (below), who was featured on the cover last month. Both of these incredible competitors have won top titles at Physique Canada competitions this year – Nadia won at the National Classic, held in June; Marie-Ève won at the Canadian Championships, held in October – and both can boast that they earned their titles legitimately by training and competing drug free.

The 2014 Physique Canada Canadian Championships

  • Written by Doug Schneider

The Physique Canada 2014 Canadian Championships event was a hotly competitive, well-attended affair that allowed the organization to end the year on an extremely positive note.

I took an interest in this word lately because Physique Canada’s president, Brian Robitaille, started using it regularly to describe many of the organization’s top competitors.

Québec Success!

  • Written by Doug Schneider

Starting a physique organization today is more difficult than it’s ever been. Off the top of my head, I can count a half-dozen organizations operating in Canada – and there could be more that I don’t even know about. As a result, when Physique Canada began three years ago, it was a huge risk, given the competition that was already around, and there was certainly no guarantee it would work.
