It's back! Our annual comprehensive regional listing of competitions!
For 15 years, every year, the collaborators at The Next Level have compiled this list for teams. BOTH strength AND bodybuilding events from around New England into one consolidated list,
But, not being selfish, we began sharing our list last year with the public.
At last! For those of you who want to both talk the talk (bodybuilders) AND ALSO walk the walk (strength athletes) you got one stop to sort out your calendar.
One handy little aspect is how we offer brief review on the contests, to help you with selecting. We know this will ruffle promoters feathers, giving our frank opinions, but who cares? None of it is biting or unkind, though, just candid; the result of our 15 years of alumni attending shows and offering opinions from one team to the next.
Of course, when it comes to promoters, their thinking is too often thus: unless you sing their praises they assume you are somehow against them. Not true. besides, we're giving them free promotion by including them on our list, so we call it even. I guess the lesson is to remember that there is an active and strong community of competitive athletes who are always watching and assessing contests from outside the gaze of the leagues, and passing those opinions on to the next generation.
