The show will include the International Natural Bodybuilding Association championships, where Mclaney will compete in the men’s intermediate and class two bodybuilding categories.

The 29-year-old, who has been in the fitness industry since his teens and worked on cruise ships as a personal trainer before coming to Australia, said having a power-lifting background helped him to look heavier than he was. Though he has been a competition preparation coach for many years, Mclaney competed for the first time last year, coming first in all three divisions at the Australian Natural Bodybuilding WA competition, winning the overall title and best posing award before achieving the novice tall at the ANB nationals.

‘So the pressure is very much on for me to repeat at least some of that good luck I had last year, but in a different federation of what’s looking like it’s going to be a very high calibre show,’ he said.

Fitness Show WA will feature more than 80 exhibitors from across Australia, including fitness apparel, supplements, healthy foods, training aids and fitness equipment.

There will be WA Jiu Jitsu Championships and a combat zone by the World Kickboxing Association.
