IFBB Pro Nicole Ball, Owner

IFBB Pro, 6x Olympia Athlete who was undefeated in her weight class for seven years in Canada. Going on to win her Pro Card in 2004 Nicole has qualified every year for the Olympia always placing top four in all her pro shows as a Bodybuilder. She switched to Physique but found her love still for bodybuilding. She was sponsored and coached by Dave Palumbo for five years for Species Nutrition out of New York. To end her Pro career she worked under Hany Rambod for the last two Olympias.

After her first pro debut she experienced getting her tan sprayed on instead of having to spend three days painting it on!! Life changing experience! She then approached the ABBA about starting this same procedure for the athletes eleven years ago and well here we are today!

Nicole enjoys her pups, horses and family time is the most important thing to her. Always active in the gym and outside activities she loves camping, fishing and above all travelling. Retirement doesn’t mean letting go of goals but striving for new ones.

Cat Lopez

Cat Lopez currently residing in St Albert Alberta Canada was born in Philippines and I came to Canada in December 1989. I am currently working for SAFEWAY as a baker for almost 21 years. I love my job considering I've been doing this for years and I think because I love the people that I worked with. I enjoy prepping food and goodies for friends and kids.

I was always involved in all sports except baseball. Fitness and bodybuilding was not in my mind when I was growing up. My interest in fitness and bodybuilding was merely an accident. Fitness and bodybuilding improved my health and well being. I met a lot of fantastic people along the way too . I started going to the gym early 2002. I started competing 2007 and the rest is history. I would like to thank Helen Bouchard and Daphne Madigin for their amazing help especially to Nicole Ball who helped me achieved my ultimate goal. With her help I achieved my IFBB PRO CARD.
