Winter 2017
It was a fairytale come true as Patrick Carr, NGA amateur physique competitor, walked into the NGA East Coast Natural Championships in Penn State with his eyes on multiple prizes. He earned them all!
The NGA East Coast Natural Championships in Penn State proudly presents to you the newest NGA Physique PRO, Classic Physique PRO, and most importantly, the future Mr. & Mrs. Carr!
The plan was set as Patrick worked with the Promoters, Earl Snyder and Terri Whitsel for about a month before the big show to get all of the details set up. Patrick was so lexible and willing to do anything to make sure that the proposal was a huge surprise for his new iancé, Maureen Walsh.
The Goal: Get Maureen onto the stage without her becoming suspicious and Maureen says “yes”.
The Game Plan: We incorporate the 50/50 draw- ing into the execution,
pull a win- ning ticket
to Maureen, and pull her on stage as a winner. Pat- rick comes out, pops the question, and clinch the win!
How It Went
Down: We pulled
a winning 50/50
ticket (a fake one) and
gave it to Patrick. He
gave it to her right before
the inals began and told her he
bought one and to make sure she
was there when they did the drawing. Luck-
ily, Maureen is easy going and agreeable! Patrick gave the emcee the coveted ring to hold at the podium.
After Patricks’ Physique routine was inished, he then exited the stage. Earl Snyder, promoter and emcee, an- nounced that we would be drawing a 50/50 and for eve- ryone to get their tickets ready. Earl had Patrick pull the winning ticket and exit the stage. Patrick stood behind the curtain with some nervousness and a bowtie. Of course,
Maureen had the winning ticket. Earl had her come all the way up on stage to set the inal scene. Still unsuspecting, Maureen looked beautiful as she unknowingly prepared to accept the proposal that would change her future for- ever. After a minute or so of complete unnecessary talk to keep her occupied, Patrick took his place on stage without Maureen seeing him and with nothing on, but his posing trunks, a bouquet of lowers, and a bow tie making all the ladies in the audience go wild! Maureen turned around
and of course she immediately igured it out, as the man who was about to steal her heart
was on one knee in front of her. She said yes.
The newly engaged couple met in 2013 at a
local dining establish- ment. They reside in the Fox Chase
section of Phila- delphia with their
rescue dog, Ace. Patrick is a NPTI Personal Trainer
and is pursuing a degree in Physi- calTherapy. He has been training
seriously for seven years and
began competing in the Spring of 2015,
and earned his Pro card in Men’s Physique and Classic Physique from
the NGA in July of 2016. Maureen is an Events Director & Caterer at The Orpheus Club of
Philadelphia, a historic performing arts club.
Maureen has been very supportive of Pat’s itness goals and achievements, and helps a lot with contest and regu- lar meal prep. In return, Pat helped Maureen streamline her own itness goals, and is constantly helping to plan new and fun workout programs to keep things interesting. They plan to get married in the Summer of 2018.
Congratulations to both of you and best wishes for a healthy, long, and prosperous future from the NGA! n
