TNT is committed to creating a positive experience for all, in a safe, all inclusive environment.


What makes TNT Muscle different? It's not just the amount of experience and professionalism TNT Muscle has collectively. Let's talk about the naturally occurring theme song from ACDC! THAT is the energy you will experience first hand at the event! No question TNT Muscle will bring it full on from Corey Ossum @poollifesociety as our exclusive, dynamic high energy emcee, attention to all the details, and integrating a family friendly environment with an edge that will leave those attending feeling exhilarated.

"TNT is paying attention to every detail from medal and award design to a heavy hand in operations, creating efficient process and solutions for things to run methodically. No stone is being left unturned to achieve this. TNT has hand selected those to support the outcome TNT intends to achieve, it's taking a village to pull this off again this year and we are making our team as extraordinary as the last. If you attended TNT's last event, you know TNT means business on this aspect."

Setting up the competitors for success dominates how we execute the event and TNT Muscle will always put on a comprehensive posing seminar prior to the event. TNT Muscle wants to contribute to the competitors' preparation process, not just the event day. Watch for details on social media @tntmuscle.

TNT Muscle will always ensure no one is walking out empty handed. Exhibitor/sponsor samples, event t-shirts, swag bags, special awards, custom medals for top 5, custom overall trophies, overalls receive paid registration for a pro-qualifier of their choice. Overall Figure, Bikini, Women's Physique, and Wellness; 1st place Female Bodybuilding and Fitness will be "crowned" with an edgy TNT rock'n roll stylized crown. Sponsored classes will receive additional prizing from the sponsor. Candid photo props are part of the day with a (fake) old school Thomas Inch 300 pound dumbbell that your 2 year old could lift, and we are working on a large stick(s) of dynamite with dynamic backdrops, stage sparklers/fog and more.

P.S. Yes there will be baked goods backstage again, exclusive to the competitors!

About TNT Muscle

TNT Muscle Productions Inc. ("TNT Muscle") is a production company originally established by IFBB Pro Tamen Ewasiuk and Tara Laviolette for bodybuilding/fitness events sanctioned by the Canadian Physique Alliance "(CPA)". The CPA is sanctioned by the IFBB Professional League, and is the only Canadian route to achieve the elusive IFBB Pro Card.

TNT Muscle's vision is to create a positive "experience" for not only the competitor but the spectator, exhibitor and sponsor. From the time you register online, interact on social media, interact with the event's exhibitors, volunteers and staff, to being backstage, then on stage, to sitting in front of the stage, TNT Muscle intends to make each moment a positive interaction and experience. Tara is 100% hands on in every respect.

Tara has been a competitive bodybuilder since 2001, has volunteered, judged, sat on executive and currently holds the exclusive position with the CPA as the Alberta Director. Her personal career is as Director, Corporate Legal for a financial services firm. Tara has been there and gets it on every level!


Tamen achieved her figure IFBB Pro Card in 2013. While Tamen has adjusted her priorities and focus, she will always be the other T in TNT and continues to fully support Tara and TNT, as we also continue to fully support her.
