Biography of Vince Wawryk

Born in Saskatoon, March 1969, a somewhat scrawny, but otherwise healthy, Vincent Wawryk came into the world, the younger of two sons born to Orest and Pauline. While being the apple of his parents eyes Vince idolized his older brother Shawn.  Surprisingly, Shawn didn't mind and they were the best of friends ...still are.  Throughout his childhood, Vince was very active in sports, mainly hockey and football.  He picked up his first dumbbell in a high school gym to add a little size and strength, after making the football team. Here, he found that he liked what he saw, and began to focus on his physique. Instead of using the weights to get stronger, to prevent being run over by the big guys on the football field, he began to put on some muscle, and liked what he saw. The rest is history...he began reading everything he could get his hands on about the sport. Through the manipulation of his diet, and varying training strategies he began to put on muscle in all the right places, which leads us to his contest history.

After graduating, Vince attended SIAST Kelsey Campus for Power Engineering.  Shortly thereafter, he was hired on at Saskpower.  Bound to start his new career, Vince packed up his gym gear, protein powders and a couple boxes of "flex" magazines and headed south to Estevan.

As family is ever important to Vince, he found living so far away to be a burden on his heart. After nearly 3 years in Estevan, he moved back to Saskatoon to be closer to his family and his girlfriend Tracy.  Vince and Tracy were married in 1996.  They have 4 children, all boys, with the youngest being twins. After a 10 year stint in Prince Albert, they now reside in Warman.

Through the chaos of work, raising 4 kids, coaching hockey, moving and the failing health of his father, Vince never put the dumbbells down. He entered his first bodybuilding contest on 1991.  in the past 20 years Vince has dedicated his life to the sport.  He works hard, researches information constantly, studies nutrition, he eats, eats, and eats some more.  Vince is constantly tweaking his diets, supplements, training. posing and attitude to be the best that he can be.  His motto has always been..."compete against yourself" he tells clients that compete and himself "don't worry about somebody else on stage, work towards doing better than you did the time before. and if you do that, you will learn grow and ultimately achieve your goal...that's what I did." and that, ladies and gentleman, is how he has come to be the 2007 Canadian National Champion of Body Building.
