The bodybuilding title of NABBA (National Amateur Bodybuilders’ Association) Mr Universe has now been brought to York.
31 year-old Stuart Garrington, owner of Ebor Fitness in Fulford, received this year’s title and follows in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s footsteps who was awarded amateur Mr Universe in 1967, and won the professional title in 1968, 1969 and 1970.
During a bodybuilding competition, the competitors are judged on different criterias, involving the symmetry and proportion of the muscles as well as the size and clarity of each muscle group.
Stuart sees his consistency as the basis for his enduring success for he has already been awarded Mr World and Mr Britain, both bodybuilding titles. This is why he does not celebrate his success excessively but stays tight to his plan, already having returned to gym and on diet, to enter the next competition successfully.
Having received the title of amateur Mr Universe, Stuart states that his strict lifestyle for the last 15 years has “all been worthwhile”.
We cross our fingers for his future goals to come true!
