Supligen has forged partnership with the Jamaica Amateur Bodybuilding and Fitness Association (JABBFA) for the 2016 National Championships & Fitness Expo. This partnership marks the fourth year running that Supligen will be title sponsor for the event.

Craig Williams of Seprod Group of Companies said that Supligen is very excited to be partnering with JABBFA for a 4th year. He noted that their partnership is part of a bigger picture on a regional level for the Supligen brand.

"This is not just a Jamaican activity, it's a regional thrust towards Supligen. Anything that deals with health and fitness we are on it, but most importantly we are all about the Caribbean lifestyle on the go. So you'll see us if you go to Barbados. We are a part of the fitness community there. We are a part of the fitness community in Trinidad and Dominica as well," he said.

Minister of Sport, Olivia 'Babsy' Grange commended JABBFA for the tremendous work they have been doing to transform the fitness landscape in Jamaica and for creating greater awareness of bodybuilding. Jamaicans are recognising the importance of health and wellness and many have adopted their lifestyles to include fitness, healthy diet, rest and relaxation, Grange noted.

"While health and wellness is seen mostly from an individual perspective, as a country, we must also view health and wellness from a national and even global perspective," Grange added.

The competition represents Jamaica's largest national championship and will see over 100 athletes participating for the ultimate Mr and Ms Jamaica crown. The National Championships and Fitness Expo also will feature a fitness village with over 30 exhibitors expected to showcase their sporting goods and products.

The action on the stage on August 27 starts at 6 p.m.
