IFBB Pro Charles Dixon

My name is Charles Dixon, known as Tank. I started my career in the early 2000.I began to train at an early age when my parent bought me a weight bench and weights. I then began to play football, it helped me with my conditioning. After I graduated from college I started working out in the local gym where I was given the opportunity to try body building.

During the course of my career it has be a rough road but I’ve never gave up.The sport of bodybuilding has been very rewarding to me. This sport has allowed me to experience so much over the years and words can’t express how much love I have for it.

IFBB Bikini Pro Sarah Allen

Sarah Allen was born in Durban, South Africa and spent her early years in Indonesia. She moved to Australia to attend primary school and now resides in Las Vegas, NV.

“As of 2010 I turned my love of fitness into the start of my competitive career within the IFBB (International Federation of Body Building)

In December 2014 I was awarded my professional status in the IFBB and as a result I am one of just a small handful of pro athletes who represent Australia in the biggest bodybuilding federation in the world.”

Excerpt from September 2014 Oxygen Magazine:

“Sarah is the current IFBB national champion and IFBB South Pacific bikini champion. Her family and friends always comes first and she prides herself on giving her time to anyone that needs advice or guidance within the industry. Sarah juggles the busy lifestyle of her household, her training and her online clients on a daily basis, all while staying in amazing shape year round.
Sarah puts down her success both on the competitive stage and her family life so having a strong regiment and work ethic. Her days are meticulously planned out and listed step by step to ensure everything gets done and nothing gets overlooked.
Sarah’s piece of advice for everyone out there looking to be able to balance a healthy lifestyle with work and a family… “Write a checklist of tasks that need to be done, and check them off one by one as you go” (applies daily/weekly/monthly)”

Top Pro Powerlifter Brandon Allen

Excerpt from September 2014 Oxygen Magazine:

What got you started into Power Lifting and Why do you think you excelled through the sport so quickly.

I got into powerlifting as an opportunity to test myself against true strength athletes. I have always lifted weights and was strong compared to others, but I wanted to see how strong I was among powerlifters.

What sort of training did you do prior to Power Lifting that allowed you to transfer over so easily.

I was a gym rat. Training started due to football, but I excelled in the weight room more than I did on the field.

Who in the sport inspires you or drives you to push harder, If anyone at all? If not, then what does inspire you or drives you.

I push myself daily to become as strong as I possibly can. Guys like Stan Efferding, Eric Lillibridge, Brandon Lilly, to name a few, have paved the way for goals that I have set.

Whats your end goal in the Sport of Powerlifting, What are you ultimately trying to achieve?

Besides being one of the best powerlifters in the world, I would say my main goal is to be a successful gym owner. I plan on my powerlifting achievements helping my gym become a reality.

What would be your #1 tip to any upcoming powerlfiters that may look up to you in the sport?

If you are new to the sport, keep in mind that it’s a marathon, not a sprint. Each and every year as you develop as a lifter, your theory’s and technique will evolve and change. Share your knowledge with the less experienced. Keep the sport positive.

IFBB Pro Rose Brunner

Hi! My name is Rose Brunner I am a mother of 2, IFBB Women’s Physique Pro, personal trainer, competition prep coach,posing coach and fitness model. I fell in love with lifting at the age of 18 and my passion grew from that point on.

My brother was the one who introduced me to weight lifting, I was instantly hooked. I competed for the first time in 1989 in bodybuilding. I continued to compete for a few years then life took over and focused on raising my children.

I returned to the stage in 2011 in figure. I did well but figure wasn’t quite me. I missed hitting a front double bi. Then women’s physique came along and In 2012 I made the switch. It was exactly what I needed to reignite my passion for bodybuilding.

The hard work, discipline, sacrifice and dedication that is required is what drives me to improve myself. It truly is a lifestyle. I am living this lifestyle everyday. 7 days a week, 365 days a year and love every minute of it.

My goal is that by improving myself, setting and achieving goals and working hard at something I love I can inspire, encourage, and guide others not necessarily to compete but to live a healthy full life.

I currently live in Denver, Co with my 2 dogs. Vito, a Bullmastiff and Lola an English Bulldog. Other than lifting I like to write, garden, cook and pretend I’m a professional photographer, lol.
