IFBB Pro Mboya Edwards is one of Canada’s top pro bodybuilders with an impressive list of accomplishments to his credit. As a youngster, Mboya was fascinated by the exaggerated physiques of comic book superheroes. He got hooked on bodybuilding when he saw Flex Wheeler on the cover of a major magazine. He began training in 1994 and entered his first contest in 1996 where he won the lightweight class. He has been competing ever since, and has racked up numerous titles including five Canadian Championships in three different weight classes and earned his IFBB Pro card in 2008.

 

As well as being an accomplished professional athlete, he is also a full time employee with the Toronto District School Board, working in the Safe Schools program. Mboya is a Behavioral Consultant in the Suspension Program sector of the Board, working with junior intermediate students. He helps these youths to stay on task with their academics while on suspension, as well as teach them strategies to cope with their individual issues such as anger management peer interaction, peer pressure, self-esteem etc. “The whole idea is to make these youths aware of the fact that these behaviors are affecting their school life and that it can ultimately affect their future endeavours.” says Mboya. He has used bodybuilding, his training and dedication to the sport as a way to connect with his students on a deeper level. He has been able to educate them on the importance of school, and helped them to appreciate the power of hard work and discipline, not only in school, but in life.
