East Coast Mecca: Episode 9

Bev and Steve get ready to host their big NPC contest.

The East Coast Mecca is a lot of different things to a lot of different people. It’s a breeding ground to becoming pro. It’s a sanctuary to escape the stress of every day life. It’s a place to stay connected to the NPC and IFBB world. But it’s also the brainchild of Steve Weinberger and Bev Francis – two people so embedded into the world of bodybuilding that it truly defines the phrase, “bodybuilding is a lifestyle.” Steve and Bev do much more than run the gym and help up up-and-coming pros. They also run their own NPC competitions in the North East.

As our East Coast Mecca show starts winding down to end it’s season – we follow Steve and Bev as they prepare to put on one of their last NPC competitions of the year. All while still giving advice to bodybuilders looking to go pro – and running the day-to-day operations of the gym itself. It’s an inciteful look into the inner workings of the NPC and IFBB and a much watch for any bodybuilding fans. Check it out above!
