Eastern USA Fitness and Bodybuilding Championships and New York State Ironman Championships - 11/01/2008

On November 1st of 2008, the Eastern USA Fitness and Bodybuilding Championships and New York State Ironman Championships (bodybuilding plus bench press & squat for reps) will be held at the East Rochester High School, East Rochester NY. This is a drug free community awareness program to help promote drug free sports competition.

The event will include divisions for kids, teens, men, women, masters and physically challenged. The age groups will range from 6 to 70 years old. This is an amateur only event that will offer a $500.00 expense reimbursement for the overall open class winners. $3500.00 total in cash and prizes. Free admission and free entry to East Rochester High School students.

International Olympic Committee (IOC) Standardized Drug Testing will be used. All of the trophy winners will be drug tested, not polygraph tested. Participants are also tested randomly. Other natural organizations don’t drug test as thoroughly or accurately and some actually allow substances such as prohormones and designer steroids which are illegal. This is the only real drug free contest Rochester has ever seen.

This event is sanctioned by the largest natural organization in the world, the International Natural Bodybuilding Association (INBA). Entry forms are available at Dick Ide Pontiac Honda, Lifetime Fitness and The Vitamin Shoppe. HOTLINE: 585-752-6398. EMAIL:

In addition to $1000.00 in free door prizes at the event, there will be raffles and prizes for LEAFF or Law Enforcement Assisting Fallen Families who raises money for the families of police officers who died in the line of duty. For a small donation or a used printer cartridge, a ticket can be purchased. Drop off boxes for used printer cartridges, fuser cores, cell phones and lap tops will be at Dick Ide Pontiac Honda and Lifetime Fitness. - Best Service, Lowest Prices, Fa

On October 4th, at the Lakewood Civic Auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio, former NPC national competitor Dave Liberman promoted the 2008 “Vyotech Nutritionals” NPC Natural Ohio (open) Drug Tested Bodybuilding & Figure Championships along with co-promoter Todd Pember.

This contest was a personal record for this contest with 148 (NOT including crossovers), of the very best natural, drug free competitors in the Midwest and beyond, did battle on stage. This was one the largest NPC regional competition in the Midwest, attracting athletes from 14 states across the country. The evening Finals had 1,000+ fans in the seats along with over 500 figure and bodybuilding enthusiasts in the house during the morning/afternoon Prejudging.

A very strict and expensive urine drug test was administered to the top 3 and 2 random competitors in each class. This is the same drug test used in the Olympic Games. It can detect the use of anabolic steroids, diuretics and clenbuterol (an illegal fat-loss drug) for up to one year.

Features making this contest special included all the competitors performing their routines during the evening Finals and everyone (from 1st to last place) receiving competitor awards, a contest T-shirt, a gym bag (courtesy of Bodybuilding.Com), Gamma-0 T-shirt (courtesy of Gamma-0), contest shaker bottle (courtesy of Infinite Labs), and goodie bags filled with free products from Worldwide Sports Nutrition, MET-Rx, Gaspari Nutrition, Labrada Nutrition, Biorythm, Beverly International magazine, BSN, Muscle Milk / Cytosport, Gamma-0, , Vyotech Nutritionals, Cellucor (along with T-shirts from Cellucor), Applied Nutriceuticals, World Gym Sheffield Village Ohio, Powerhouse Gym Elyria Ohio, Ultimate Nutrition, ALR, MRI, Beverly International, Parrillo Performance, Posedown Gifts & Apparel, Stem Enhance, and Ultra Trained Personal Training by Mr. Ohio Dave Liberman. The top 5 received impressive awards including 6` class winning trophies and overall champions receiving towering 8` trophies along with beautiful contest jackets. Souvenir programs listing every competitors name, respective class, city and state, along with full page advertisements for every sponsor, were given to all the athletes, judges, sponsors and everyone attending the evening Finals.

As with all of Liberman and Pember contests, $1,000.00 of the proceeds was donated to the American Cancer Society. Additionally, Dr. Debbie Freeman (Dr. Freeman, 54, who, along with top NPC figure competitor, Linda Reho, started a women’s athletic clothing line, “Infinity Designs”) donated $700.00 to the American Cancer Society in honor of her Mother who passed away from cancer 11 years ago, making the total donation amount of $1,700.00 going to the American Cancer Society. Dave and Todd remain committed to this charity and will continue to support the American Cancer Society at all of their future NPC

The highlight of the evening was 8 X Mr. Olympia, Ronnie Coleman, as the contest’s very special guest poser. Without a doubt, Mr. Olympia being in the house was the constant buzz throughout the day. The best bodybuilder in history showed up in exceptional shape for a guest poser and treated the fans to an incredible routine and later addressed the crowd. After which, Ronnie had most in the audience doubting just how “permanent” his retirement from competing actually will be. Time will tell. Next years, October 3rd, 2009 “Vyotech Nutritionals”NPC Natural Northern USA Drug Tested Bodybuilding, Figure & Bikini
Championships will feature very special guest poser, Arnold Classic Champion and 1st runner-up Mr. Olympia, Victor Martinez! Certainly not an event to missed by any fan!

Emcee, Body Fitness magazine’s Mike Lackner did another great job with wrapping up the event at a very reasonable 10:30 PM. Not an easy task considering all 148 competitors got to pose at the evening finals, along with the guest poser, and a thirty minute intermission for fans to shop the exhibitor area.

The next Liberman and Pember production will be the April 4th, 2009 “Vyotech Nutritionals” NPC Ohio (open) Drug Tested Bodybuilding, Figure & Bikini Championships which will be held at the Lakewood Civic Auditorium, and very special guest poser will be none other than 2 X MR. OLYMPIA, JAY CUTLER!

This will be a very special event! For sponsorship, entry and ticket information, contact Dave Liberman at 1-(440)-942-5634 or Todd Pember at 1-(440)-984-2762 or log onto:
