I would love to have fitness. We had to stop running it due to very low participation. If you can come up with 10 athletes we'll have it.
For example girl called from NY last month with 18 TEEN Fitness athletes. I said we would run it if the athletes were in. When all was said and done she had 3 competitors as the others opted for a gymnastics camp.
The NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIPS that I promote has fitness September 3/4.
It's July 24th, in Pittsburgh, PA
2010 GNC NPC
MASTERS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
Bodybuilding Figure Bikini
HOW TO QUALIFY
Bodybuilding competitors need only to have entered a previous NPC
contest, no matter what the year, no matter what the placing, no matter what the category - Teen, Novice, Collegiate, Masters, Open, etc.
Figure and Bikini competitors are not required to pre-qualify for this event.
All contestants must be registered as athletes with the computer service of the NPC National Physique Committee as of June 23, 2010. For an application, contact the NPC at PO Box 3711, Pittsburgh, PA 15230 412-276-5027.
Competitors MAY NOT register for an NPC card at the Check-In/Weigh-In.
Men Over 40/Over 50/Over 60, Women BB Over 35/45, Figure Over 35/45 and Bikini Over 35
Due to the fact that these Divisions are Pro Qualifiers you MUST be a US citizen to enter this event and proof MUST be sent with entry (copy of birth certificate, voter registration, or military discharge).
He is talking to Jim Manion on tuesday about if there could be a pro card given to the over all winner.. But if not this year then definitely NEXT year IF we can get 9 more girls to make a showing here! Please help if you know of any Masters figure girls that want to try fitness or any Fitness girls that are over 35! This could be a huge step in getting us another pro qualifier back !
OH and remember there are no more Mandatory moves you have to do anymore! So if you have a dance background, or martial arts or are just strong or flexible there are all kinds of women and routines that will do well now!
