Hi, I’m Nic Manshon. Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career.  If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject.  Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning. After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again.

I am a fitness athlete based out of Durban, South Africa. My fitness career began in March 2016 with the IFBB federation. Since then I have won all 3 competitions which include KZN provincials and Nationals (SA Champs), making  me the number one Mens Physique Champion in South Africa in my division. In November 2016 I had the opportunity to represent my country (South Africa) at the prestigious IFBB World Championships that took place in Poland. This opportunity also gave me the chance to earn my colours in South African bodybuilding. I recently graduated with my Bcom Degree with a double major in Marketing and Business Management. I am currently prepping for Arnold Classic Africa which takes place in May. Winning this event will earn me my procard as well as getting to meet the legend himself Arnold Schwarzenegger. #fingerscrossed.

I hope to inspire as many young individuals as possible, i will be happy if I’ve changed just one persons life for the better. My desire for success in all aspects of my life is what motivates me to get up and be at the gym twice a day while making time for my studies. I want to show people that you can live a life that you love and you are capable of anything if you just want it bad enough. Hard work and discipline go hand in hand.  Never let anyone tell you that you cant do something or that your goals are not attainable, because while they might know the odds, they do not know you :)
