Shaul Ilan - Passed away June 12 2009
Shaul was one of our great master's competitors at Valley Health and
Fitness. Shaul maintained amazing year round condition and was walking proof
that a healthy, active lifestyle can make one ageless. Shaul often competed
against bodybuilders up to 30 years younger than he was, and beat them.
In the masters division, his overall condition was highly competitive and he
enjoyed great success. Shaul was an outstanding ambassador not only for
Valley Health and Fitness but for the bodybuilding community and for active
and healthy living.

Marilyn Shane "Muscle Momma" Wins 1st
June 2nd, 2007 Marilyn Shane puts the word power in empowerment.
Last weekend at the Western Naturals Bodybuilding Fitness and Figure Competition in Nanaimo, the 50-year-old single mother of two placed first in the masters and heavy weight category.
She then beat out all female competition, taking home top overall prize.
It was only Shane's fourth competition.
"It was a big goal of mine to do it at this age. I just wanted to do one more at 50," said the enthusiastic Shane.
"I not only did it, which I'm really grateful for, but I won it."
Shane's bodybuilding career started just three years ago when she was working out with a friend on a treadmill and lamenting the drawbacks of age.
