Adam Bankston was born and raised in Chico and has been featured in Chico News & Review as the first IFBB Physique Pro Athlete from Chico. He graduated from Chico State with a Bachelors of Science in Construction Management and a double minor in Business Administration and Marketing. In 2012, while attending Chico State, Adam won first place in his class in the Physique Division at the NPC bodybuilding competition, the USA Championships in Las Vegas, NV., where he earned his IFBB professional status.

Through much dedication, Adam has now established his own fitness expo in Chico, The Sierra Nevada Classic Fitness Expo, where he hopes to give athletes the inspiration to go the extra mile in their fitness career.

Mr. Bankston feels that giving to our communities through philanthropy is essential in forwarding social progression. He is committed to partnering with local non-profit organizations and has a vision of overall fitness for the community and students in Chico.

With our values aligned, by uniting diversity, I believe as athletes and students of Chico State, that we can all create a positive change in the lives of adults and children through fitness. By creating athlete-student mentorship opportunities alongside fitness events we organize in the local community we can have a direct impact in making a positive change in the lives of others.
