Choosing a color right for you!

Part of getting the best fit for your posing suit is choosing a color that will look great on you. There are lots of color options as well as fabric choices. At Muscle Potential we only you 4 way stretch fabrics, this allows the fabric to flow with you better on your frame and give a more fitted look. When you get a 2 way stretch material like nylon or cotton it will bunch up as it moves, causing a baggy, ill fitted look. Crushed velvet is a popular material for posing suits for men. They like it because it gives a bit of a shimmer but crushed velvet is a heavy material that doesn't move with the body that well. When guys ask me about crushed velvet I usually refer them to our Metallic Mystique line. This is a 4 way stretch fabric that gives the same light shimmer effect with out the heavy material as well as giving you a much more comfortable fit and feel. Don't get bogged down by wanting a certain fabric type!

We look at your hair and eye color and think about you skin tone when you are on stage when we choose colors for you. Some people say they look great in a color to me but they are thinking about how they look normally, not with a few coats of fake tan on. Most guys don't think in competition terms, the contrast of a color when you are normal might be a great complimentary color. 

Also another factor which is not always thought of, are stage lights. The reason you either tan or dream tan is to make yourself look darker to keep from washing out your definition from the bright stage lights. Some guys want light neon colors but they forget under stage lights those bright colors can get washed out, especially when you might not have enough color on yourself to balance it out. Some federations may not allow metallic or neon colors that doesn't mean a nice wet look fabric can't give same effect.

Happy New Year from Muscle Potential

I would like to just take a minute to say congratulations to all the athletes that competed in 2013 and wore Muscle Potential Best Fit Posers on stage. This was a great second year for Muscle Potential, as with any company growth there are always obstacles to over come. The biggest is getting the brand out there and we are seeing that more and more.
We had more natural pro bodybuilders starting to see the advantage of getting a custom tailored posing suit, the fit is the best and the service can not be beat. We also gained more competitors in the NPC at the 2013 NPC Nationals in Fort Lauderdale, FL we had 3 competitors and 2 placed in top 5. We got a lot of great feedback and some of the new pros have contacted me in regards to suits for their future shows.
Part of our endeavor to keep this brand and mind set of custom tailored posing suits growing we have some great projects in the works for 2014. First is a great collaboration with Kent Bierly, president of the ANBF, a natural bodybuilding federation. Muscle Potential and the ANBF will be hosting the very first MA show, the ANBF MASS Muscle Natural Classic. You can see poster here - http://tinyurl.com/ANBFMA. It will be held on August 16, 2014 at Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, MA. Here is a look at the auditorium: http://on.bubb.li/125246azt60qnieeozq9kv (This is great location, great seating all around the stage.) We will be the official posing suit sponsor for this show, if you will need posing suits we will be giving a discount to any registered athletes for this competition.
We will also be setting up a booth at this competition, this will be Muscle Potential first exhibit booth. We are getting all the pieces for that put together so it will look top notch and professional just like our company.

Don't forget if you are a trainer or coach, we offer team discounts for your athletes email us at mpg@musclepotential.com for more info. Find out how you can receive a discount code for your team and earn some posing trunks for yourself as well.
We are pleased to announce we have 2 new Reps Trevor Sajdak and Travis Struble (http://tinyurl.com/MPGReps), they will be helping to promote the line and get the word out there about our great products.Trevor and Travis are competitive bodybuilders and understand how important a posing suit is for a competitor. They believe that Muscle Potential has a great product line and want to make sure everyone they assist knows they will up hold the great customer service that MPG is known for.

Just in case you are not familiar with our product line, we provide 100% custom tailor made posing suits and board shorts for athletes. Mens Physique is a growing part of our sport and we hope if you know any physique competitors you will let them know about our custom tailor made board shorts (http://tinyurl.com/MPGBoard). We will also be making squarecut shorts as well for the federations that allow those for competitions. Don't forget that we also have a growing line of tanks and t-shirts for sale on our website. Don't compromise for an "ok" fitting posing suit or board short. Take control of your look on stage and get the BEST fit for your physique with MPG BEST FIT product line.
We are very excited about this year, and look forward to working with all that choose Muscle Potential for their competition needs. Lastly, in the works for this year we will be putting together a calendar with the Athletes of Muscle Potential for the 2015 calendar year. We are proud of our athletes and the hard work that they put in to getting ready for their competitions. Not only will this calendar be a great way to show the hard work they put in, but also a portion of proceeds will go towards a charity we will be choosing later in the year. I hope all our MPG athletes who choose to compete this year will choose to participate. The 12 lucky athletes that are chosen to be in the calendar will each receive free pair of posing trunks for their hard work. More info will be posted on our Facebook and website. 

Thank You,

2013 NPC Nationals Recap (VIDEO included)

It has been a hectic few weeks going into Thanksgiving. Last Thursday I left for Fort Lauderdale, FL to see some of the Muscle Potential Gear athletes take the stage at the 2013 NPC Nationals. We were supposed to have 4 athletes at the show this year, but due to some circumstances out of his control he was unable to attend the show. Once I arrived in FL I headed over to my old job and had some new business cards printed and picked up some of the Man Enough to Wear Pink  2014 Calendar. (Make sure you order yours from http://shop.photostudiomiami.com/ - ALL PROCEEDS GO LOCAL BREAST CANCER CHARITY.)

On Friday was the Men's bodybuilding prejudging. Once I arrived it was a long LONG line to buy tickets. (Note to self: Get there earlier and pre-purchase tickets.) Fellow Muscle Potential Athlete met me there Adrian Cipriani to watch the show. We got there a lil after the men's bodybuilding started and got some great shots (which you can see the embedded albums below of the prejudging and some for finals.) The first athlete we had up was Denver Smith. Denver is great guy and finally got to meet him before finals. He was heading backstage so didn't get a chance to get a picture with him, but was good to talk for a few. Last year Denver placed 5th in the Welterweight class, this year Denver placed 4th very stacked class. For prejudging Denver wore a Metallic Mystique Royal Blue posing suit with 3/8 sides and 1/4 back style.

Next we had 2 athletes in the Light heavyweight class Kyle Wheeler and Jason Fuller. Kyle I have known for a while and talked with him about getting into a Muscle Potential Gear suit for a while. It was good to work with him for Nationals where he placed 4th place in the class. Here is Kyle at prejudging in Wet Look Navy Cire with 3/8 side straps, flat panel front, and 1/4 gathered rear style.:

It was also my pleasure to meet Jason, his wife and child along with another Muscle Potential athlete Jason has brought in Ross Dabbondanza. Who were there to support him as he competed.

Hopefully in 2014 we will have some more great athletes to work with going for their Pro card. Not only we do posing suits, but Muscle Potential Gear does photography work as well. Here are the 2 galleries I have uploaded to FB of pictures from the show. There are over 1300 pics sorry for not uploading them here but to many (these are low res pictures in this gallery, following there is a few Hi Res shots as well)






Here are some of of the Hi Res shots:
