On August 28, the 2016 South Coast Beach Body and Strongman Show will open its doors at Darrara College Sports Centre, for the fifth year running. This show is unique in the competition calendar as the only show in the country in which like-minded fitness enthusiasts can compete both on the stage and in competitive lifting.

F1 Fitness Centre, supported by local partners – the Quality Hotel, All Black Tarmacadam, Atkins DIY, Jelly Fish Surf Shop, Richy’s Bistro, Inchydoney Surf School and Scully’s Butchers – makes up an arena with national partners T&T fitness equipment, NX Sports Nutrition and Swedish Supplements. Creating a fitness festival of hot bodies and strongmen and women from across the country – along with great food and summer sounds from a resident DJ.

This show was originally conceived as a bench press competition, but as it has grown organisers now ask the question ‘pound for pound, who is the strongest?’ with both Bench and Deadlift competitions.

On the stage Beach Body competitors have endured three to four months of strict dieting and training regimes to get lean and shredded to produce serious condition. This year organisers are also launching the Mr. Muscle Beach Class as an open bodybuilding category. The judging panel, which has supported this show from the beginning, includes Paul Keeting, head judge and promoter of the Mr.Cork Bodybuilding Show, Sophia McNamara, nine times Miss Ireland, local Master Class Champions Stuart McDonald and Trevor Brady, and this year, Mat Smith, owner of BodyRockz Cork, is the fifth judge.

In addition to athletes competing, show organisers are delighted to welcome David Neligan, representing Ireland at the armature World Championships this year, as a guest on the stage.

Across the afternoon there are prizes to be won in the show arena and you can also shop, with several stands offering discounts on the day for sports nutrition products, workout clothing from Fitness Freaks and beach wear from the Surf Shop in Clonakilty.

Show organisers hope you can join them for an afternoon of competition and fun to end the summer. Admission is only €10 per person and free for children under 12 years.
