2010 Muscle Beach Labor Day Results

/ Posted 09.08.2010


This year’s Labor Day competition saw 87 Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Competitors strut their stuff at Muscle Beach Venice.

The Overall Winners for the event include:

Women’s Bodybuilding Overall – Lauren Powers

Men’s Novice Bodybuilding Overall – Bradley Tipton

Men’s Open Bodybuilding Overall – Ralph Gaxiola

Bikini Overall – Tatum Miranda

Figure Novice Overall – Nathalie

Figure Open Overall – Nathalie

Congratulations to all the winners!!!!

We look forward to photos of the winners and the event in upcoming issues of Iron Man Magazine.


All the competitors were inspired when Arnold showed up early in the morning at the Weight Pen, riding his bike down the Boardwalk. He was gracious and stopped to take pictures with the athletes. He encouraged them to continue the pursuit of their goals for health and fitness.

The event Title Sponsor Muscle Tech and other sponsors including Bodybuilding.com, Iron Man Magazine, Vitamin Shoppe, Adore Swimwear, Mutliblaster, Bulky Boys, Big Back Grips, Independent Herbal Life and Vitamin Water provided education and giveaways to the crowds on the Boardwalk.

Thanks to all the sponsors for their support of the events at Muscle Beach.

A new addition to the competition at Muscle Beach included a hot dog eating contest sponsored by Bodybuilding.com, Big City Reds Hot Dogs and Big Daddy and Sons. Although this may seem a contradiction at a fitness event – the winner of the event “Furious Pete Czerwinski” (a BB.com sponsored athlete) has a truly inspirational story. After many years suffering from anorexia, he overcame that illness and entered into competitive eating. He is an example of an individual who is healthy, fit and is a strong supporter of exercise. All the contestants were great!!!

WATCH OUT CONEY ISLAND

MUSCLE BEACH CAN THROW DOWN

The City of Los Angeles awarded a Certificate of Appreciation to 92 year old Relna Brewer McRae. Relna and her brother were the original founders of Muscle Beach Santa Monica. Relna’s reputation recognizes her as the world’s strongest women during the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s. She was the first woman to lift weights as an extensive part of her exercise regime. Relna was inducted into the Muscle Beach Venice Bodybuilding Hall of Fame 2009 and her plaque can be seen along with many others on the Muscle Beach Walk of Fame.

Joe Wheatley Productions would like to thank all of our staff including the judges, expeditors, back stage personnel and support staff for all the work and commitment they have invested into our events. Without them we could not have accomplished the huge success we have achieved at the Muscle Beach Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Events – THANKS!!!
