My friend Johnny “The Motivator” Carrero has a big event coming up this weekend: the 2012 NGA Natural Mr./Ms. California Extravaganza. Interested bodybuilding and physical fitness? Want to help out a good cause? Then this is something you don’t want to miss, as local and national athletes compete for the NGA Natural Mr./Ms. California Bodybuilding Championship, the NGA Natural Ms. California Figure, the NGA Natural Ms. Bikini California, the NGA Natural Ms. Physique California and the NGA Natural Mr. Physique California. All of the athletes, by the way, are drug free (seven years or longer), something Carrero, owner of Fitness In Mind Professional Fitness Training, feels strongly about. He works to drive home to his clients—especially his younger ones—the importance of working out without the assistance of drugs.
Prejudging starts at 10 a.m. with the evening finals scheduled for 6 p.m. The event takes place at Folsom Middle School, 500 Blue Ravine Road in Folsom. Tickets are $10 for the prejudging and $20–$25 for the evening finals. Proceeds benefit local educational programs that teach young athletes about the harmful effects of anabolic steroids.
