Mr (and Mrs) University UKBy Sj.Cliff
Are you tired of the lazy rep that students get? Well prove them wrong by entering Mr University 2014! Mr University is the first and only UK university based fitness competition, a showcase of the most healthy, athletic and fit students that the UK has to offer.
The contests hope to highlight the positive effects of an active lifestyle. Not only does it give you more confidence but exercise has been proven to have a positive effect on your state of mind and relieve stress – perfect for those deadlines!
But it isn’t just about who has the biggest muscles. Mr University is also judged on aspirations, their personality and how well they come across on stage. There is also a chance for non-competitors to be involved, with an online vote being held in the run up to the event! It’ll also be broadcast online.
Hosted in The Leicester o2 Academy with professional sound, lighting and visual projector displays to add that ‘wow’ factor to the event. They expect to sell out the 600 person capacity so if you want tickets, get them quickly.
