Following Nicole Morgan’s lead is a good idea.

Duncan’s Morgan of Pure Fitness has achieved considerable success in bodybuilding competitions that led nine clients to give it a try.

They entered the International Drug Free Athletes event in Vancouver and the newcomers did extremely well, inspired by the master.

Stacie Nelson was first in figure and the top novice overall at the show. Emily Ellis came second in figure, Sarah Taylor third in fitness model and Kathy Adelborg fourth in figure.

Sarah McAfee was fifth in figure and also did a transformation challenge, according to Morgan. “She’s lost a ton of weight,’’ Morgan said. “She got a medal for that.’’

The rest didn’t place but found out what the competition was all about and that experience should prove invaluable next time.

“I was very proud of them,’’ said Morgan. “It was more exciting watching them go through it than me.’’

Morgan swept to first place in the IDFA and the preceding Natural Physique and Athletics Association show in May in New Westminster for the Open Figure and Masters Figure classes.

She also got her pro card in both associations.

Morgan will continue to work with the other athletes on shows, but is going to take a bit of a break from competition herself.

“I’m taking the rest of the year off,’’ she said. “I want a full year and do a pro show either in the States or across Canada.’’
