Hi my name’s Chris. I’m a dad to two amazing girls and husband to my amazing wife, Amber.
I work for an IT company in Palmerston North as a Business Development Manager so I spend a lot of time behind a desk. Having a plan and sticking to the right nutrition is even more important with sedimentary job.
Personally, I’m very motivated and have clear goals on what I want to achieve. Winning Overall’s nationally is one of them and a goal I aim to achieve in 2018. I’m passionate about the fitness industry and enjoy cooking and protein baking using supplements to create healthy treats that taste great.
I’m a competitive bodybuilder since 2015 and won all my categories. In my first year competing I won Nationals for novice Athletic. Since then I’ve gone on to win every event I’ve entered and moved from Athletic to Bodybuilding.
I’ll be competing in WFF 2018 and looking to win the Open Nationals at the end of 2018.in April 2018 and September & October 2018. My results will be very dramatic, as I cut down and gain muscle, I will coming in very lean and have a coach and nutritionist to help me achieve my goals.

Favourite PBC Product: Can I say all of them? I guess if I had to choose it would be the pizza and muffins mixtures. But they are all really good.

We recently caught up with Chris to ask him a few questions….
How did you get into Competitive Bodybuilding?
My wife wanted to compete and I said I’d do it with her to help support her. Ever since we’ve been hooked and love competing. We both have big goals and winning Overall’s nationally is our first one.
What have you found to be the most valuable piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Don’t be afraid to fail and Don’t listen to the naysayers (Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 6 rules of success)
What’s next on the cards for Chris Brine?
Train hard and grow for the next 8 months. Then I’ll be competing at WFF Wellington in September, this will lead in competing at WFF Nationals in October.
