Far East Bodybuilding Competition presents ‘Beasts of the East’
The MCCS Far East Bodybuilding competition is known as one of Semper Fit’s biggest events of the year and after a four-year hiatus, it finally returned last year. This year, it’s bigger and better and the competition could not be more intense.
Fifty of the best bodybuilders, physique and figure competitors in the Pacific will compete on Aug. 7 at the Camp Foster Theater for the fitness event of the year. “The Far East show has always been the best show. We want this [Far East Bodybuilding] to be the best thing people have seen,” says Glen Morris, event coordinator and retired pro bodybuilder.
