Competition In The NPC Nationals

Being used to the competitive environment, Armand started to feel there was something missing in his life. This is when he met John Kemper from Diamond Gym in Maplewood New Jersey. John told Armand "You have the bone structure and genetics to become one of bodybuilding's best.”

His 8 hour study days from Monday to Friday, and working in night clubs every weekend forced him to rethink his whole approach to leave no stone unturned. His preparation had to be on point and calculated.

“I knew I wanted to become one of the best bodybuilders, no excuses.”His sights were set high, his passion was unwavering , but one thing started o get in the way, his ego. As Armand explains it; “Like the majority of people starting out in the gym, my ego tended to get the best of me and I was trading technique and efficiency for too much weight.” He continues ” Luckily, I had Jonh Kemper, one of bodybuilding's best coaches to guide me when something wasn’t working.”

Through the years, Armand’s made his dreams into a reality by true grit and a “no-excuses” attitude. By Julie Chan
