Meet Sierre Cull

Say hello to Sierre Cull, wellness competitor from Langley, British Columbia.

The gym may have started out as just a hobby but quickly turned into a blessing, getting in the way of a very dark and dangerous path Sierre was headed down.

When she first discovered competitive bodybuilding she knew she had found her purpose and it continues to be her savior to this day.

Sierre has competed in two shows, one regional and one national. As she is still new to the sport, she understands that there is no timeline for her success, however, she is aiming to go pro in her next season on stage.

She loves the toughness and grittiness that is required to make it to the next level. Sierre has fully bought into the process and is determined to prove she has what it takes to make the jump from the amateur level to the pro level.

To Kody, bodybuilding is more than just training, or just the gym. It completely turned his life around. He is a dedicated athlete who works long hours in the field but always makes the time to prioritize the gym as well. His coach and best friend, Brandon Chan, has been a huge influence on him, continuing to push him to be better everyday.
