The NPC Southern States Championships @npcsouthernstates has a long history and in 2020 it celebrated its 40th Anniversary. The contest is currently promoted by @ifbb_pro_league Fitness competitor Maria Fucci-Bellando @mbfitpro and with all the craziness of 2020, Maria was determined to have this landmark anniversary of the contest still happen. And it did! In celebration of this anniversary, Maria along with contest sponsor @protan_official brought in @npcnewsonlineofficialpage Chief Photographer J.M. Manion @aroundthenpc_jm to cover the contest. J.M. also arranged to do an #exclusive Overall Champions Photo Shoot for the Open class winners on Sunday after the contest.
As part of the group photo shoot, once J.M. ran them through poses he had some fun by having each winner call our their favorite pose and all the other winners had to do the same pose for that division! It was fun and everyone did it with lots of laughs! Then Maria herself got in on the action to have them do some #fitness movements, not with a lot of success as you’ll see.
