TITAN BIG MOVE!!
When Titan Gym member / personal trainer & pre-contest prep coach and NPC contest promoter, Dave Liberman says "he's got a HUGE announcement" it would be wise not to ignore it. Liberman released some powerful news on his social media on Friday, October 6th which will change the landscape of his two top regional NPC drug tested competitions from this point forward. I cannot put this BIG NEWS in better words than Dave did therefore below was the exact post taken from his FaceBook page:

Once again, 5 X MR, OLYMPIA, PHIL HEATH GUEST POSED along with celebrity BODYBUILDER, MIKE O'HEARN (his stage name from the TV show ",American Gladiators" was TITAN!) rocked the stage with BOTH stars were in phenomenal shape as Phil very recently won his 5th straight Olympia title 3 weeks prior to his appearance in Lakewood and Mike was at his all time best shape and conditioning!!

Both athletes and spectators alike left the fall event with even more exciting anticipation for this coming spring event - April 2nd, 2016 NPC NATURAL OHIO (open) CHAMPIONSHIPS & EXPO where Liberman & Pember will be moving their events starting in 2016 to the CLEVELAND PUBLIC AUDITORIUM in downtown Cleveland, Ohio - only a few block away from Titans Gym, Cleveland!
TITAN APPEARANCE - AGAIN!:
One might ask, where does the BEST BODYBUILDER IN THE WORLD (5 times!) go to train when on the road. Your answer would be - The BEST GYM available! That said, for the forth time Phil Heath has been in town, lucky TITANS GYM members in Mentor got a real treat as they witness the 5 X MR. OLYMPIA training around 9:45 PM on Friday night, October 9th! The superstar of bodybuilding trained legs and "enjoyed" every set of his brutal workout at TITANS GYM!

GET READY...GET SET TITANS...2016 IS GOING ROCK FOR ALL NPC COMPETITORS!!!
TITAN CONGRATS & GOOD LUCK!
CONGRATS to TITANS GYM, Mentor gym member, RYAN WEBER as he won the OVERALL in the Open Men's Physique division at the November 7th, NPC ALL SOUTH CHAMPIONSHIPS in Louisiana, on route to compete for his IFBB Pro card in Miami, Florida in the NPC National Championships the weekend of November 20th - 21st! With movie star good looks and a physique good enough to land a top 5 placing at the IFBB North American's a few years back, Ryan is looking to return to the Buckeye state with his IFBB Pro card. BEST OF LUCK CHAMP!!
GOOD LUCK to another top NPC national competitor heading to Miami on November 20th - 21st as RUSSELL "MANIA" POWELL has his sites and board shorts set to take the NPC Nationals stage in search for his IFBB Pro card! The MANIA MAN refuses to let an opportunity to earn the coveted pro card go by without getting on stage and doing his best. Powell, who has placed as high as 3rd at the 2016 NPC MASTER'S NATIONALS (missing his Pro card by a hair - top 2 received their IFBB pro cards) is coming to the land of palm trees and sunny beaches in the hopes of bringing back his well earned IFBB Pro card which will no doubt help keep his top physique warm during the cold Cleveland months ahead! Russell primed physique has all the qualities of a professional and it is only a matter of time for this popular athlete!
Looks like the fine state pf Ohio will be very well represented at this years 2015 NPC National Championships in Florida compliments of TITANS GYM! Way to represent guys and safe travels Champs!!
