Daniel Hetzel wins INBA PNBA Pro/Am America’s Natural Illinois State! 

The 2022 International Natural Bodybuilding Association (INBA)/Professional Natural Bodybuilding Association (PNBA) Pro/Am America’s Natural Illinois State was held on May 14, 2022, in Chicago, IL.

The PNBA America’s Natural & INBA Illinois State had some great standouts at the competition. PNBA Daniel Hetzel brought great conditioning to the pro stage and was victorious in the PNBA Pro Open Bodybuilding. PNBA Athletes are qualified for the 2022 Natural Olympia in Las Vegas Nov. 10th-12th at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas.

New talented physiques in the amateur categories brought their best that day, including Evan McCrary (Men’s Bodybuilding), Jan-Michael Bailey (Classic Physique), and Jonathon Kind (Men’s Physique)–these amateurs seized first place in their respective open categories. Jonathon Kind earned two PNBA Pro qualifications in Classic Physique and Men’s Physique. He also won first place in novice and open physique.

There was phenomenal posing in Classic Physique, with artistic poses and smooth transitions. And posing is essential, but many overlook that aspect of competing, which can affect placement amongst other athletes in the division.

Evan McCrary brought the muscle to the amateur open bodybuilding category. Perla Bueno won first place in Wellness and took home her PNBA pro qualification! Lisa Forst looked phenomenal and took home big wins.
