I am excited and happy to announce our First Natural Bodybuilding show “Desert Oasis Classic” in Palm Desert on March 30th at The College of The Desert”!

Before I dive into the details, I have a question for you:

What comes to your mind when you hear the word: “Bodybuilding”?


Is it a big person all tanned with big muscles flexing his bicep? Or is a selfish dude that eats chicken breasts and takes selfies in the gym? Or is it classic – steroids?

But what if I tell you that Natural Bodybuilding is less about muscle building and more about finding the true potential within..

Natural bodybuilding means building your body in the most original sense: no need for steroids or other kinds of doping! A balanced diet and a well-organized training plan are at the core of this sport. But it’s so much more than just building your body.

It’s based on 4 Core Principles:

  1. Training
  2. Nutrition
  3. Recovery
  4. Positive thinking

Let me tell you my story:

I grew up in a very poor family in the little town Nikolaev in south of Ukraine where as much as I remember myself growing up people were unhappy, scared and struggling with the quality of life. Heck the safety was not an everyday option. I remember feeling unsafe and afraid of “something” or “someone” all the time. Humiliation at school, unfriendly people and a survival mode made its effect on me so even after years spent in the US I was still having a hard time accepting abundance and safety around me. Until I started my self development journey.

See, when I finally accepted that I was allowed to do what I loved doing I realized I didn’t know what was that thing I wanted to pursue! Now when I am not getting told what to do any more and I can simply choose, I completely stumbled? It led me to think of “passion”. What makes me passionate and happy? What gives me joy? F

When I began my self discovery I realized there was a lot of self doubt and self sabotage! HUGE! I doubted everything I was doing. Even minor things such as buying the right type of tea! How in the heck you can succeed in business when you can’t even trust yourself with choosing the right type of darn tea!

IMt Bodybuilding journey completely changed my own perception of myself, my own beliefs about my abilities to achieve things in life. It was a turning point of self not just “descovery” but self growth and endless potential! If you train regularly and eat nutritious foods, staying consistent and loyal to your goals and accountable to your meanings, you are a “Natural Bodybuilder” whether you know this or not. If you are someone who can be true to his/hers values and brave enough to follow up and execute, you are a “Natural Bodybuilder”! These people are winners in life. They know and respect their life values, they live in the best versions of themselves, free of Ego driven behaviors or expectations.

Through building your own bodies whether you complete or not, you build evidence that you can and are capable of setting meaningful goals, executing and actually achieving what is important to you and aligned with your values. I am excited to announce that our FIRST NATURAL BODYBUILDING SHOW “Desert Oasis Classic” is set for March 30th at The College of The Desert! We can’t wait to see all the athletes and guests!
