McALESTER — Snap Fitness opened up Tuesday on the George Nigh Expressway. Jason Fassio, a 30-year-old McAlester native, is an assistant manager.

He’s also a state bodybuilding champion, having won the novice heavyweight division of the National Physique Committee Oklahoma Championships on June 8 at the Union Performing Arts Center in Tulsa.

“It was awesome,” Fassio said Thursday. “It was a lot of fun. There was a lot of good competition there.”

Fassio competed in both the novice heavyweight and open light heavyweight divisions, placing first and second, respectively. Fellow McAlester bodybuilder Kevin Wilson took third in the open middleweight division.
