Full Name: Brendan Mark Ward
I have always been active and played high level rugby throughout my youth. Keeping fit in the gym has always been treated as a means to and end for the rugby season ahead. It was after seeing some significant ‘gains’ whilst in Ireland on a rugby contract that I moved my attention from rugby, to the gym. I was hooked and since returning to New Zealand in late 2013 I continued to grow on this new hobby, and turned it into a sport through competing in the IFBB 2014.
Still relatively new to the sport, I am proud my initial achievements thus far, naturally competing to win my first show at the Northland Champs in 2014. Being a part of the NZ Muscle team is such an honor and will help me to earn the illusive Pro Card.
