Mr & Miss Hull East Coast 2015

Hull for some years now has been missing out on the bodybuilding scene with no home ground show of its own, and just a small handful of successful athletes competing in other cities across the UK…… well that was the case until now!

When plans in the making came together between Bodyworld gym owner Kevin Bonner and Mr Universe Dan Welburn, in 2014 word started to get out that Hull maybe about to host its first bodybuilding show in well over a decade. As excitement grew, competitors began to prep and confirmation of the date, venue and classes were set, Kevin and Dan’s plans took form.

The highly anticipated event takes place on the 3rd of May (THIS WEEKEND!!!), at the University of Hull’s Asylum nightclub (entrance at HU6 7TQ) and is set to be a packed out evening with competitors, bodybuilding fans and interested members of the public. One of the main aims of the event, says Dan, is to show the vast majority of the public (who may not be as familiar with the industry and the bodybuilding lifestyle), that it’s both a challenging and admirable sport, and just as normal as attending a circuits or body-pump class each week. You can expect competitors from the following classes at the show to bring their best condition in the hopes of taking home a title:

  • Under 21’s
  • 1st Timers
  • Novice
  • Men’s physique
  • Ladies bikini
  • Disability class
  • Mr Hull
  • Ladies toned figure
  • Ladies athletic figure
  • Ladies trained figure
  • Over 40
  • Over 50
  • Misters (Under 5ft8)
  • Misters (Over 5ft 8)
  • Mr overall show

There has been between 30-35 confirmed competitors from Hull alone! The event has been well structured, drawing on the experience of both Kevin and Dan. Kevin being a “old school” powerlifter and title holder back in the 80’s and Dan with a long list of bodybuilding credentials to date, including following as well as running his own personal training business (MUSCLE HONEYZ):

  • Dan Body BuilderNabba novice uk winner 2009
  • Nabba north east mr class 1 and overall winner 2011
  • Nabba Mr Britain class 1 4th place 2011
  • Nabba North East 2012 class 1 winner
