2016 NPAA Magazine 2016 - Volume 1 - Page 4

INSPIRATION, MOTIVATION, PERSPIRATION, & TEAMWORK We are so thrilled to publish the latest issue of NPAA Magazine. It has been a labour of love for the 2015 and 2016 seasons to summarize and capture all of the memorable moments that we were privileged to experience as a federation. We are so proud of our last two issues, and sat and had to think hard about the theme of this issue? How do you summarize such an incredible movement into a theme. Then it came to us at our most recent athletes meeting in Calgary. What is our sport? What is competing? Some think it is a sport of vanity, and that the only reason someone steps on stage is for attention or perceived fame. We know differently, and this magazine is evidence of the powerful movement and community that competing is truly based on. THIS IS A SPORT OF INSPIRATION, MOTIVATION AND PERSPIRATION. Hence these are the themes of this issue. Need more evidence or proof? …Then kindly flip to the article written about Chuck Thompson, our bodybuilding iron man. Yes an iron man who has competed in over 100 competitions. Can you imagine the amount of motivation, and commitment it has taken to achieve such a feat? Chuck also summarized his best 100 tips that he can recommend to anyone entering this physique sport. NPAA Community Still not convinced? Please read the inspiring stories provided by our transformation award winners. Each individual set a goal to compete as a means to help them conquer some of the largest obstacles a human could endure, inflammatory joint disease, heart disease and stroke, obesity, cancer and body image disorder to name a few. Many of these inspiring athletes learned to balance life as spouses, parents, caregivers, professionals and competitors with the difficult circumstances they endured prior to and during their contest prep. Our greatest motivation should come from β€œwithin”, but these exceptional athletes make Ύ±½½¬½ΥΡΝ₯‘”½˜½Υȁ½έΈ)•αΑ•Ι₯•Ή•ΜΡΌ‘Ʌ܁₯ΉΝΑ₯Ι…Ρ₯½Έ…Ή΅½Ρ₯Ω…Ρ₯½ΈΡΌ½Υȁ½έΈ±₯Ω•ΜΈ)=Υȁ9A…Ρ‘±•Ρ•ΜΝ•Π•α•±±•ΉΠ•α…΅Α±•Μ½˜ΑΥΡΡ₯Ήœ₯ΈΡ‘”‘…₯±δΙ₯Ή°Ρ‘”‘₯ΙΡδέ½Ι¬°)Ρ‘”Νέ•…Ρ䰁Α•ΙΝΑ₯Ι…Ρ₯½ΈΝ½…­•ε΄Ν•ΝΝ₯½ΉΜΡΌ…‘₯•Ω”„Ή…ΡΥΙ…°‰½‘ε‰Υ₯±‘₯Ήœ)Α‘εΝ₯ΕΥ”Έ%Ё…»ŠeЁ‰”‘•Ή₯•Ρ‘…Ёё”…±₯‰Ι”½˜Ή…ΡΥΙ…°½΅Α•Ρ₯Ήœ½ΈΡ‘”9AΝΡ…”)₯́ё”½±ΝΡ…Ή‘…ɐ₯Έ½ΥȁΉ…Ρ₯½ΈΈ]…ΉΠΡΌ­Ή½ά‘½άΝ½΅”½˜½Υȁ…Ρ‘±•Ρ•Μ‰Υ₯±)ΝՍ ™…‰Υ±½ΎΉ…ΡΥΙ…°Α‘εΝ₯ΕΥ•Μ°Ρ‘•Έ‘•¬½ΥЁ½Υȁ™₯ΡΉ•Ν́…ΙΡ₯±•Μμ Υ₯±‘₯ΉœΡ‘”)Α‘εΝ₯ΕΥ”½˜‰₯­₯Ή€΅½‘•°‘…΅Α₯½Έ…ΉAΙ½Α•ΘΝΕՅЁѕ‘Ή₯ΕΥ”™½Θ…Ρ‘±•Ρ•ΜΈ ½Ρ ½˜)Ρ‘•Ν”™₯ΡΉ•Ν́…ΙΡ₯±•Μέ₯±°‘…Ω”ε½Τ΅½Ρ₯Ω…Ρ•™½Θε½ΥȁΉ•αЁε΄Ν•ΝΝ₯½ΈΈ)́„Α±…Ρ™½Ι΄™½Θ‘•…±Ρ •‘Ս…Ρ₯½Έ°έ”έ•Ι”™½ΙΡΥΉ…Ρ”ΡΌ‘…Ω”ΘΈΙ₯ŒMΥ‘₯­δ)έΙ₯Ρ”…‰½ΥЁё”Ή••™½ΘΉ…ΡΥΙ…°ΡΙ…₯Ή₯Ήœ…Ή½΅Α•Ρ₯ΉœΈ́„™½Ι΅•Θ½΅Α•Ρ₯Ρ½Θ)…Ή™₯ΡΉ•Ν́΅½‘•°°ΘΈMΥ‘₯­δ•±½ΕΥ•ΉΡ±δ•ΉΡ₯Ρ±•‘₯́…ΙΡ₯±”€±₯™•Ρ₯΅•‘Ι՝™Ι•”…Ή)½ΥΡ±₯Ή•ΜΡ‘”Ν•Ι₯½Ύ‘•…±Ρ Ι₯ͭ́½˜Α•Ι™½Ι΅…Ή”•Ή‘…Ή₯Ήœ‘Ι՝̸́„™•‘•Ι…Ρ₯½Έ)έ”…Ι”ΑɽՐΡΌ•‘Ս…Ρ”…ΉΝΥΑΑ½ΙЁΉ…ΡΥΙ…°½΅Α•Ρ₯Ήœ…Ή±½Ω”Ρ‘”½ΉΡ•ΉΠ½˜½ΥΘ)‘•…±Ρ •‘₯Ρ½Ι₯…°Έ)]”‰•±₯•Ω”Ρ‘…Ёё₯́±…Ρ•ΝЁ₯ΝΝΥ”½˜9A΅……ι₯Ή”έ₯±°‘…Ω”½Υȁɕ…‘•Ί₯ΉΝΑ₯Ι•°)΅½Ρ₯Ω…Ρ•…ΉΙ•…‘δΡΌ½ΉΕՕȁ…Ήδ½…±ΜΡ‘•δ‘…Ω”Ν•Π°έ‘•Ρ‘•Θ₯Ё‰”Ν΅…±°½Θ±…ɝ”Έ)]”±½½¬™½Ι݅ɐΡΌ…±°™ΥΡΥΙ”Ν•…Ν½ΉΜ½˜Ή…ΡΥΙ…°½΅Α•Ρ₯Ήœ…Ήέ₯Ν ½Υȁ9A)™₯ΡΉ•Ν́™…΅₯±δΡ‘”‰•ΝЁ₯Έ!•…±Ρ …Ή]•±±Ή•ΝΜΈ)M₯Ή•Ι•±δ°)ΘΈ]•Ή‘δ …ΙΩ…±‘Ό΅Ν‘‰δ€˜ΘΈ-•Ω₯ΈΝ‘‰δ)9AAΙ•Ν₯‘•ΉΡΜ((ΔΈ((0
