Antoine Vaillant


Antoine Vaillant, one of the IFBB’s current crop of young guns, earned his Pro Card by winning the Super Heavyweight class and Overall title at the 2012 Canadian Nationals.  This upward rise to the Pro ranks was evident with Antoine’s back-to-back wins at the 2006 and 2007 Junior CBBF Nationals.  Antoine was born in Sherbrooke, Quebec and was the typical Canadian youth in that his life revolved around playing hockey.  His hockey career began when Antoine was 5 and continued for 8 years and served to instill the values of hard work and perseverance.  Following this Antoine found martial arts where he excelled at the freestyle form of martial arts known as “Tricking”.   Vaillant’s popularity is derived from more than just his Pro status.  Antoine understands the power of the internet and is one of the most viewed bodybuilders on the web.  His videos range from simple in the trenches training videos to his extremely popular displays of gymnastic prowess.  Several supplement companies capitalized on Vaillant’s online success and signed him to an athlete endorsement contract when he was in the amateur ranks and he continues to be sponsored today.  Vaillant’s success in the Pro ranks has not matched his history in the amateur ranks.  Plagued by poor placings Antoine is a “work in progress” but this is one of the traits that drive his mass of fans.  They love to see the struggles of a young Pro and are inspired by the motivation of Antoine’s online honesty.
