SHRUB Oak, N.Y. - Two Yorktown residents and a teacher at Lakeland High School flexed their well sculpted muscles and impressed judges at a recent natural bodybuilding and figure competition in Westchester.
The first annual Pure Physique Natural New York Championships attracted more than 20 competitors May 26 to Irvington's Arts & Athletics Center. The event was hosted by Michael Lipowski, owner of Pure Physique in Shrub Oak and co-founder of the Drug Free Athletes Coalition, a not-for-profit organization formed to provide a platform for natural athletes to showcase what can be achieved through proper nutrition and training.
Ann Marie Reilly, a teacher by day, competed in the Women's Masters Figure division (40 years and older) and captured first place by displaying what judges described as a "lean, toned physique, great abs and well-defined legs."
Two Yorktown residents, Corrie-Beth Hughes and Angela LoBrutto, also won awards in the Women's Open Figure division. Hughes won second place with her impressive legs, back and shoulder definition. She also won the "Best Female Presentation" crown for her entertaining and energetic routine.
LoBrutto won third place for displaying "a balanced and symmetrical shape and good stage presence."
