2017 ICN - WORLD CHAMPION Natural Bodybuilder

I moved to Australia from England 7 years ago to follow my dreams in the fitness industry. I’ve always been a keen sports person, playing soccer, cricket, golf & representing England at volleyball when I was younger. However I had a dream to become a World Champion Natural bodybuilder one day. 4 years ago, I started my proper journey in the bodybuilding world, winning state transformation challenges at the gym I was at. Taking two 2nd places in my first ever competition, the fire in my belly was lit and my dreams were one step closer. The year after that I went to Nationals in Sydney and took 5th place in Australia, and then in 2017 my dreams came true and I was crowned the ICN World Champion Natural Bodybuilder.

When I’m not at the gym or competing, I’m a tradie & online coach. I take great pride in helping others change their lives and reach their own personal goals. My personal motto: Never give up on your dreams!

KYLE MARTENS - 2017 IFBB NSW 2nd place

Nickname - K,  Year born - 1992

Have you always had an interest in health & fitness?

Yes, it stems from when I played rugby league from age five. I played reps so I would research training techniques and methods, plus the best nutrition and supplement practices that would help my performance on the field. I implemented the same approach when my interest in Bodybuilding started, with great success.

What age did you start playing sport?

I started playing rugby league when I was 5 years old up until 22.  I then turned my focus to gym training and Bodybuilding.

When did you start competing in bodybuilding?

I competed in the ANB South Coast titles (fitness model division) in my first show in 2014 and placed 3rd.  I went on to place 2nd at the IFBB NSW state titles in late 2017.

Do you have any competitions planned for 2018/2019?

I am currently prepping for the 2019 Arnold classic to compete in the Classic Physique Division. Unfortunately, I missed out this year due to a late injury.  I am dedicating the remaining part of 2018 to making as many improvements as possible, so I can present my very best next year on stage.

Apart from the gym what else do you do in your spare time?

I like to be out and about, preferably at the beach or in the city.

Future fitness plans?

I’m working really hard to earn my IFBB pro card foremost.   I do have aspirations to become a fitness model and return to Personal Training preferably on the Gold Coast QLD.

 

MAYAPUR RAPINETT - 2017 JUNIOUR IFBB QLD 3rd place

Nickname - Mypes,  Year born - 1995

Have you always had an interest in health & fitness?

Fitness has always been a passion of mine. I first started training 8 years ago and did so because I enjoyed the way it made me feel. I wasn’t a confident person at the time, I had minimal strength and I wanted to change my body shape. After about 6 months of training, the physical results started to show and my motivation levels skyrocketed! Since then I’ve never looked back. I keep getting stronger and stronger every day. Training has improved my life in so many ways. It’s changed my physique, made me more aware of healthy eating habits, and has built up my confidence.

Did you play any sport growing up?

All my friends played football throughout my high school days, but my passion was always gym training and bodybuilding. After school, they would play football and I would go to the gym.

When did you start competing in bodybuilding?

I competed in the Junior IFBB Australia in October 2017 and was awarded 3rd place.

Do you have any competitions planned for 2018/2019?

I am currently preparing for my next competition in October 2018 - the Junior IFBB Australia

Apart from the gym what else do you do in your spare time?

I enjoy walking at the beach, eating out with friends, going to the movies, bowling and anything spontaneous.  The gym takes up a lot of my time, but I keep a good balance and make the most of life every day.
