Muscle Beach

Jones Beach on Long Island is known for the hot women that frequent it during the summer months. Across the sand of every field located there, every day is a sizzler. But on Sunday, August 24, the stage will take the place of the sand when bodybuilding and weight lifting legend Dan Lurie will bring a little bit of California to New York with the Mr. & Mrs. Jones Beach USA Bodybuilding Competition.


Classes are Men’s Bodybuilding (short, medium, tall); Women’s Bodybuilding (short, tall); Master’s Bodybuilding (40 and over, 50 and over) and the Beach Body Contest, which will bring the same beauty and intensity as fitness and figure competitions.


Ken Jones, an IFBB professional and a past winner of the Mr. America and Mr. World titles, will be a guest poser. The panel of judges will include Steve Michalik (head judge), Leon Brown, Anibal Lopes, Freddy Ortiz, Mario Strong, Angel Evans, Paul Bernstein, Lidia Szczepanowski, Joseph Reaiche, Amy Llinas, Tony Coppeta, Dr. Gerard D’aversa, Dr. Elias P. Bonaros, Mark Lurie, Dr. Tony Badal, Matthew Kantar, Dr. Mitchell Herman, Dr. J. Alexander Jarbath, Stephen Kucker, and Robin Cristo.

Admission is free to the public and only $20 for contestants to enter the open competition. There will also be a casting call for a new reality television show, “So You Think You Have a Good Body.” Team Tug-of-War will also be held, with teams of ten able to enter for a fee of $10.00.

Best of all, proceeds will be donated to the United Cerebral Palsy Foundation.
