The Australasian Natural Bodybuilding Federation (ANB) was formed in 1983 by Robert Powell who was a young man who had a passion for all sports, especially sports that required strength training. In those days Robert owned supplement stores in Sydney where also Kevin Reilly worked as a distributor and today is ANB Vice President.
Now more than two and a half decades later with numerous world champions and Australian Champions, we have a firmly structured national organization involving hundreds of administrative members and literally tens of thousands of members. We continue to have sold out shows and with each competition the numbers of competitors continue to grow.
We have a firm and respected anti-drug policy by ASADA where with their support we will continue to support natural athletes as much as possible to give them an even playing field on stage.
To give athletes a venue in which they can compete, and be treated with the utmost professionalism. We will continue to promote health and fitness within the communities. We seek to raise a standard in bodybuilding, fitness, and modeling, and give athletes an unlimited opportunity with sponsors, competitions throughout Australia and exposure in various media outlets where possible.
Mike Lee has been a bodybuilder and personal trainer for more than a decade. He also manages a successful vitamin and supplement business which has a retail shop in Condell Park and an online store called Supplements Online.
Mike started weightlifting and training for fitness in his teens, and also worked in a supplement store where he learned about good nutrition, supplementation, and training. His knowledge and passion for the sport continued to develop and after several years he opened his own supplement store and set his goal on participating in the Australasian Natural Bodybuilding (ANB) competitions. Mike successfully competed to take home several ANB trophies including 70 Kgs & Under and Men's Novice.
Following his personal success, Mike was more than happy to share his tips and techniques with other young and novice bodybuilders, many of whom also came to his store to buy their supplements. He started working with a group of enthusiastic bodybuilding competitors that proudly call themselves "Mike's Team". In 2009 there were about 30 competitors on Mike's Team, and the number of competitors (and trophies) continues to grow each season. Mike personally trains and advises everyone on his team to help them achieve their goals and optimum performance. Mike's expertise in sports and nutrition has led to practitioners of other sporting codes such as football, tennis, marathon, and martial arts seeking his advice and guidance.
