THE 2017 MASS Student Physique Championships WINNERS

At the beginning of April we had students from across the country come together to show our judging panel how far student fitness has come. The months of prepping all became worth it once the students stepped out on stage and posed their hearts out. The talent this year was truly remarkable and the SPC is managing to improve each and every year.

The MASS SPC is all about celebrating student fitness, and this year we wanted a panel of incredible judges to score our hugely talented competitors. We had industry professionals like Team Box’s Stephen Box to MASS’s very own overall bikini champion from last year, Phoebe Hagan.

But for most competitors, the MASS SPC is never about just winning, but instead it’s an opportunity to come together with other like-minded students and enjoy the process of competing, as it could be the first of many shows for some of our competitors.

In case you missed the show and haven’t had a chance to catch up, here are your MASS 2017 winners!

Hosted at the Bristol SU Anson Rooms, the show took place on Saturday 12th March, with celebrity fitness models sat on the judging panel, including Men’s Health cover model and international physique competitor, Matt Sallis. The show was a roaring success with the venue packed to the rafters and 500 people from around the UK turning up to watch the live show that was sponsored by Protein Dynamix.

To catapult their careers the lucky winners received a photo shoot with renowned fitness photographer Matt Marsh. They also received an array of prizes from the shows sponsors Protein Dynamix, and a career workshop with Matt Sallis at ESTR personal training studios

Humble in victory, Men’s Physique winner Jake summed up the show as “the perfect presentation of dedicated and ambitious students who all supported and encouraged each other” with Women’s Bikini winner Phoebe Hagan adding “maybe we can change the stereotype from lazy to lean!”.

The involvement of Protein Dynamix helped the MASS SPC to take its competition to new heights this year with increased promotions, bodybuilding figurine trophies, the large stage banner that you see in the pictures, competitor goodie bags and much more. The competition organisers and all of the competitors would like to express their sincere gratitude to Protein Dynamix for supporting the show. Ambassadors Deek, Mustafa and Alex represented the brand on the day where they manned a well presented Protein Dynamix stall, giving out free samples to spectators, awarded the winners their medals and supported competitors backstage. We have no doubt that Protein Dynamix is going to continue to become more and more popular in the student market after their involvement in the SPC.
