Muscle Beach Philippines 2017 — An Island Summer Treat!

If sparkling white sand beaches, beautifully-sculpted physiques, festivities and fanfare, great drinks and food, blazing tropical sun and dramatic sunsets, gorgeous people and muscles parading on the beach doesn’t get you to Boracay Beach Philippines this summer, then I don’t know what will. Sometimes it only takes one great bodybuilding event that gets people amped-up to get into the fitness lifestyle, or at least aspire to look ripped like a champion! Muscle Beach Philippines is the summer event that shouldn’t be missed. They may not match the perfection of the gods of Olympus but it’s probably pretty darn close, with women champions whose physiques can make FHM blush!

This summer, GooZam with The Fitness Hub and GIGEN EVENTI brings to you Muscle Beach Philippines 2017, at the fabulous Boracay Peninsula Resort on Boracay Island. Muscle Beach Philippines 2017 is an immersive experience that will take the event participants into the world of Muscle Beach Venice Beach, California. Organized with the participation of Sherwin Sy, Mr. Philippines Bodybuilding event 2014 organizer, tied-in with the social good mission of GooZam.

Jewel Karunungan, NPC Grand Prix LA 2017 Figure Class champion and the International Classic Figure category champion at Muscle Beach Venice 2016, will show-off her competition winning poses during the event.

Prestige
Muscle Beach Philippines is the first staging in the Philippines and Asia of the popular event that started in Venice, California. Credited as the starting point of the physical fitness boom in the United States in the 20th century, Muscle Beach started out as an outdoor fitness area for gymnasts and other strength athletes and eventually transformed into an outdoor weightlifting platform that served as the home gym of popular personalities such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno. Today, Muscle Beach is more popular as ever and serves as the central location for public interest in physical fitness. The staging of the Muscle Beach event in the Philippines gives Filipino physical fitness athletes and bodybuilders an opportunity to become a part of the rich tradition and culture of the seminal event in California that has influenced the popularity of physical fitness worldwide.
