IFBB Physique Pro Nola Trimble, originally slated to represent the "Pros" at Osta Gain's Bros vs Pros 13, will no longer be able to make the trip from Chicago out to The Garden State this Saturday December 15th. Instead, we asked the lovely and uber powerful IFBB Pro Bodybuilder Colette Nelson to step into those shoes, and after a little arm twisting and a few well-placed compliments she agreed to compete this Saturday afternoon. Colette is no stranger to Bros vs Pros competitions. She was narrowly defeated by Tazzie Colomb in the deadlift at Deer Park Golds Gym in one of the earlier Bros vs Pros events. Since that time Colette suffered a bicep injury about a year ago and is now anxious to prove to herself that these kinds of events are still well within her wheelhouse. Colette displayed tremendous determination and guts in the video below knocking down 44 reps and still had breath to spare to do the post-lift interview immediately afterwards.
The one thing Dave Palumbo told me is that no matter what, RxMuscle has to bring Bros vs Pros back to the Tri-state area at the close of the year. Last year we were close, in Chicago at the Jakked Gym. The year prior we were in Deer Park, NY at the Golds Gym and the performances were immense and spectacular!
This year, bodybuilding lost one of its legends of the sport. John Kemper had the mindset of not only living the lifestyle and possessing one of the greatest physiques the nation had ever seen, but he had the ability to culture new talent. John empowered people to bring the best in themselves to the gym and stage. When John Kemper left us earlier this year, he set in stone the legacy of one of the greatest training facilities in the country. It may not be big, it may not be pretty, but it produces champions!
