BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Athletes like Christina Cantun have spent months getting into the best shape of their life.
"My motivation [is] to not be the little girl I was," said athlete Christina Cantun.
For any athlete, winning today's competition is a chance of a lifetime. But for pro-body builder Kiyoshi Moody, it's more than just muscles.
"You have to showcase your physique," he said. "It's not only about going up there and being cut and ripped, you know, you have to have a good presentation."
Social media sites like Instagram and Facebook help promote these events. But organizers are hoping that the competition will help promote a healthier lifestyle.
"Watch the show and get inspired and get motivated to start a program in fitness," said Dominick Dibitta, the organizer of the fitness championship.
The INBA Central California Muscle, Fitness and Physique Championship will be showcasing the hardwork and endurance of its participants on Saturday, March 29 at 12 noon at the Harvey Auditorium, with the main show beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25.
