COMPETITION CATEGORIES FOR MEN

TRANSFORMATION

It doesn’t matter where you started your journey or where you are when you walk on stage because this category is all about transformation. You don’t need a six-pack or 0% body fat to compete in this category—you just need a story. Transformation athletes will provide a before and after picture with a short description of your transformation that you are comfortable sharing with the audience. There are two rounds in this category: Board shorts for the first round, evening attire for the second round.
