The INBF Hercules holds a special place in my heart, marking pivotal moments in my journey. It’s where I clinched my first Pro, Tyrone Robinson, in 2012, and where I’ve seen solid competition over the years. This year felt different; with a strong team and three potential Pro contenders, the stars seemed to align. The idea of a Hat Trick crossed my mind, but I hesitated to believe it, fearing disappointment. Yet, as the event approached, excitement and anticipation grew. The INBF Hercules has always felt like home, and this year, it promised to be something truly extraordinary. Guided by the expertise of Team SUF Natural Bodybuilding Coaching, we were ready to make our mark once again.
Jessica’s prep was flawless, a testament to Team SUF Natural Bodybuilding Coaching. Her remarkable transformation since 2010 was evident as she competed in both Open Figure and Fit Body at the INBF Hercules. It paid off – she excelled, earning her Pro status in Fit Body and securing 2nd place in Open Figure Short. A triumphant day indeed for her.
On June 1st, Tyrone, Fred, and I journeyed to Massachusetts for the WNBF/INBF Northeast Classic. Tyrone clinched 3rd place in the lightweight pro division, while Fred impressed with 3rd in Open Bantam class. Back home, Fred’s posing was refined, transforming him into a formidable contender under Team SUF Natural Bodybuilding Coaching. The notion of a Hat Trick for him at the Herc grew stronger.
Cody, prepped for a long time, displayed astonishing progress in NC. Although he clinched 1st in his class, a Pro Card required a top 2 finish in the overall, narrowly missed. Minor adjustments were made for the INBF Hercules, leading to a triumphant victory. Witnessing Cody’s win brought tears of joy.
The 2013 INBF Hercules marked a pinnacle in my career, boasting 3 Pros and an Overall win. It remains an unforgettable moment in natural bodybuilding. And with Cody’s recent Overall win, the INBF Hercules is forever ingrained in our hearts.
