Welcome to the first ever Grimes Classic in Canada! If you are looking to become an IFBB Pro this is a great starting point for you. We are honoured to be a part of this journey with you, and our goal is to make this experience as incredible and memorable as possible.

This event is in memory of Jim Morris, the Canadian Bodybuilding legend and contest promoter of over 30 years. Jim and his business partner, the late Norm Jacobs, promoted the very popular Festival City Classic. Jim also played a role in the expoential growth of Canada's premier bodybuilding event - the Toronto Pro SuperShow, alongside CPA President Ron Hache. In 2016, Jim was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Jim was beloved by all.

Rest in Peace Jim. Your memory lives on with the Grimes Classic and the entire Canadian bodybuilding community!

Regan Grimes began his personal journey to becoming an IFBB Professional Bodybuilder with the Canadian Physique Alliance and is extremely excited to now give you this opportunity. The show is about challenging yourself, and working your hardest at accomplishing the goals you have set fourth in your own bodybuilding journey.
