Lt. Gen. Ellen Pawlikowski, Space and Missile Systems Center, Los Angeles Air Force Base, Calif., commander, , presents Staff Sgt. Joshua Suttle, 412th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, with the first place trophy in the Armed Forces Middle Weight division at the Muscle Beach International Classic and Armed Forces Championship May 27. The annual event is held every Memorial Day at Venice Beach, Calif. Suttle is a member of the Blue Eagles Honor Guard and is an F-35 maintainer.

“I have been training for about six years but this was my first competition,” said Suttle. “My desire to constantly improve upon myself is my motivation to compete. I like that bodybuilding is one of the few things in life where the result is a direct reflection of the hard work you put into it; you cannot blame another person or any external forces if you fail and it creates humility and teaches you to look at yourself honestly.”

Suttle added that it felt “awesome” to win because it’s something to show for the four months of “brutal” dieting that led up to the competition.
