Can/Am 2016 Show Coverage

     It’s the Can/Am baby! It’s your favorite beast Nitro, giving you a feel for the action at this year’s Can/Am. The date was March 19, 2016. The show took place at Nichols School in Buffalo NY. The temperature was cold as to be expected for that time of year, however, things were going to heat up on stage in a phenomenal way! This was my first time meeting Jerry Marsala, CEO of the Natural Muscle Association and promoter of the Can/Am Natural Bodybuilding show.

     This was a big show as far as drug-free shows are concerned, with over ninety plus contestants hitting the stage. The venue was packed with a sold out crowd, which gave the contestants a feeling like they were performing to a crowd waiting for rock stars to hit the stage… and they delivered a performance on that level as I could hear the roar of the crowd from back stage.

     I’d like to give a personal shout to everyone who took the stage by storm. In the NMA, everyone that hits the stage goes home with a trophy! How cool is that? Going down the list of all the categories would be a long list since this was a really big show! So, instead I’m going to list the results for only the Pros of the evening:
