Name: Travis Priest

Age: 25

Men's Physique Competitor

My fitness journey began 12 years ago, when I was 13 years old and my dad started getting me into working out with him 3 times a week, in our basement home gym. I started lifting weights at an early age to start putting on muscle for highschool sports, and my dad was always showing me old bodybuilding magazines which was where I was introduced to one of my idols, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Throughout high school I played various sports including; football, rugby, and eventually transitioned into MMA.

After high school, I focused mainly on MMA, but eventually decided I wanted to pursue my passion of bodybuilding. I was intrigued by the new division at the time of Men's Physique. Being an all natural competitor, I knew I did not have the size to compete with top level bodybuilders, but decided I'd try Men's Physique. I competed in my first show back in April 2015, where I placed 4th in the first ever Junior Men's Physique Class. Since then I've competed in 3 shows, coming 2nd in the INBF Central Naturals in June 2016, and placing 2nd in the MABBA Fall Classic in October 2016.

I plan to compete again this year in Provincials in June, where I hope to claim the title of Mr Manitoba!! I am very excited to be apart of the team with Muscles by Myers, and foresee great things in the future with their support and great supplement brands!!
