    2009 NPC changes

    Bodybuilding, Fitness, Figure and Bikini Enthusiasts,

    The Board of Governor's Meeting was November 20, 2009 and we have made several significant changes that athletes need to be aware of:

    1. Elimination of the one piece swimsuit round for both Fitness & Figure.

    2. Qualification for a national show has been changed from 2 years to 1 year. You will be qualified for whatever remains of the year you qualified in plus the full calendar year following.

    3. Your qualification will be good for only the division you qualified in. Meaning if you qualified in fitness you can compete in fitness at nationals, not in any other division (figure or bodybuilding or bikini). You can qualify for different divisions at different shows.

    4. Introduction of Bikini division. Bikini division will have the same height classes as Figure. Bikini competitors cannot crossover into any other division at the same event. Bikini will wear a two piece suit, not necessarily a "figure" two piece, but they could be the same suit, suit bottom must be v-shaped, no thongs permitted. Heels can be the clear acrylic but not necessarily recommended. Bikini competitors may wear jewelry. Athletes will walk on stage individually, walking to center, doing a full turn, not four model poses like figure, then walk to stage right, then all athletes will be brought to the center line and compared facing front and facing back only. Judges will be scoring on balance and shape and overall physical appearance including complexion, skin tone, poise and overall presentation. Competitors are not to "pose" as in figure with shoulder blades pulled apart and muscles tight. Top 5 in class will qualify for nationals at an NPC national qualifying event.

    It is highly suggested that athletes in our district attend the posing seminar in February to get more detailed information, look at the calendar on the website for details, www. mnnpc. com
