Brian Robitaille has the highest respect among his peers in Canadian bodybuilding. Brian Robitaille began his competitive career in 1992 and retired after winning two national-level titles and representing Canada at the World Championships in 2000. He has been a physique judge for more than 15 years and has also been an extremely successful competition promoter.
