The Athens Review
Former Athens resident Jeffrey C. Enoch, Jr. recently finished in first place at the Purebody Nutrition National Gym Association Extravaganza show last Saturday in Tyler.
The 33-year old personal trainer is a Men’s Physique competitor.
He now lives in Longview and said this win comes a year into his career.
“This show was the Natural Gym Association, which is 100-percent drug free,” Enoch said. “You have to be seven years drug free of any steroids or performance enhancing drugs.”
Enoch said in last year’s competition, he was in third place during the competition.
Enoch said to become a men’s physique competitor, he has a very stringent diet.
“I do about 70-to-80 percent dieting and the rest is high repetitions of weight training,” Enoch said. “That is light weight with high reps and then I swim every other day to get a full body workout.”
Enoch said the judging is different from traditional body building competitions.
“The judging is based on overall symmetry and we got docked on a point system for being too muscular or not enough symmetry in our bodies,” Enoch said. “I am a mix in between physique and body building right now.”
Enoch said he would like to thank the following sponsors: E and E Services, Constable Daryl K. Grahamas and Purefit Performance Fitness Apparel.
