Steadfast Nutrition once again threw its weight behind the National Physique Committee’s North India and Mr Tricity Bodybuilding and Physique Championship, considered the region’s biggest bodybuilding tournament. Steadfast Nutrition sponsored the event, which successfully took place on Sunday, April 17 at Panchkula’s Indradhanush Auditorium. A total of 200 athletes from the Chandigarh Tricity, Delhi-NCR, Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Rajasthan, Uttrakhand, and Uttar Pradesh competed for the NPC North India, Mr Tricity, and other prestigious titles.
Steadfast Nutrition founder Aman Puri says he collaborated with the NPC to further the brand’s initiative of making bodybuilding a part of mainstream sports so that it becomes a lucrative career option for youth. Mr Puri says he wants to make bodybuilding a risk-free sport through good quality, steroid-free, and rigorously-tested nutritional supplements.
"This year also, Steadfast associated with this championship to further its goal of making bodybuilding a part of mainstream sports. By presenting contests like these, we want to expand its reach and ultimately make bodybuilding a lucrative career for the youth. India is a powerhouse of sporting talent. Unfortunately, our youngsters don’t get the right opportunities and platforms to display their skills. These initiatives are also bringing us closer to our long-term aim of making India the Sports Capital of the World.”
Steadfast Athlete Surbhi Jaiswar made the company proud by winning the gold medal in the bikini championship category. With her win, Surbhi made it a hat-trick of gold- she won the gold medal at the NPC event in 2021 and at the Sheru Classic Model Hunt held subsequently.
Bodybuilding athletes often turn to steroids and performance-enhancing drugs to enhance their physiques. This is where the right supplements can play an important role.
Aman Puri says, "Supplements make it easier to obtain the nutrients needed to build muscle and give you an edge in your training when taken with a healthy diet. Steadfast Nutrition’s supplements are organ-friendly, steroid-free, and rigorously tested. They’ve enabled countless athletes to clinch medals at national and international level championships. "
This year, the NPC North India’s competitions were particularly crucial since it’s essential to have an NPC participation certificate to be able to compete in the upcoming Sheru Classic pro qualifier to be held at the International Health, Sports, and Fitness Festival in New Delhi in June. The other reason for the event to hold a great significance was that it acted as a platform for beginners to showcase their talent and helped them channelise their energies in the right direction.
The event was judged by some of the greats of the bodybuilding world, including NPC’s Delhi head Sunil Lochab, and Steadfast Nutrition Athlete Dr Rita Jairath, also an IFBB Pro League Judge.
The athletes faced off in five categories: Classic Physique, Men's Physique, Women's Bikini, Women’s Physique, and the Star category for the specially-abled.
The other highlight of the event was the ‘Star Category’ in which differently-abled individuals showcased their muscular bodies, developed by sheer dint of hard work and despite health issues. The other high point of the event was the way female bodybuilders flexed their muscles, displaying their well-toned muscles and abs, impressing the judges.
