The objectives of the ANBF Natural Elite PRO can be compared to renowned tournaments in various sports, such as the Olympic Games in athletics or the Super Bowl in American football. Similar to these prestigious competitions, we aim to bring together outstanding athletes from different backgrounds and federations and provide a stage to showcase their skills and compete at the highest level.
Our competition ensures fair evaluation methods and attaches great importance to transparency and integrity. The jury consists of members from various associations, which ensures a diverse and unbiased assessment. Jury members are carefully selected to ensure the highest standards of judging.
When you take the stage you will be part of one of the biggest natural bodybuilding events in Europe and enjoy all the benefits of the ANBF. This includes professional photo shoots, exclusive goodies, a backstage buffet for athletes and a welcoming, family atmosphere. We strive to provide an athlete-centric approach so you feel valued and supported throughout your journey.
COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY:
As an Austrian sports club, we work on a non-profit basis. Every penny earned is reinvested back into the organization so we can continually improve and grow. All our helpers and the organizing team work voluntarily and unpaid. By participating, you contribute to the development of the sport and help us offer future athletes even better competitions.
This year we are starting with a men's bodybuilding class with a maximum of 15 athletes. Even if you are a professional in another class and support our idea, you can apply now. We'll let you know when we expand the class in the coming years. This may be an incentive to start preparing for your competition.
The application period ends on July 31. The participants will be announced and introduced at the beginning of August. Selected athletes have access to the ANBF Natural Elite Pro class in their personal athlete profile. The ANBF also reserves the right to issue wild card invitations to athletes.
