With 197 National Federations affiliated to IFBB, our organization is a fantastic epicenter of great ideas and projects. A new example has been the recent meeting in Thailand, with IFBB Executive Juliette Bergmann -Secretary of Women’s Committee- as host, and with the participation of national executive officials from Mongolia, Hong Kong, Netherland and Belgium.

With their respective wide experience in sports and in organizativa areas, the meeting became in a fantastic brainstorming where the five executives designed new projects for the future, supporting the unstoppable growth of Bodybuilding and Fitness, around the world.

We are immersed in a health international emergency as a consequence of the Covid-19 epidemic.

In this situation, we must follow the applicable national and international regulations and the advice from governments and sanitary authorities.

All this has to be done with positive energy and best spirit, maintaining our focus on the fact that any epidemical situation has expansion, stabilization and reduction periods, and that with adequate care, this nightmare is going to be a bad memory soon.

By all means, the integrity of our athletes, officials, judges and of all who integrate our community is now and always essential. We are a family in sport and life.

We can expect to reach the epidemic peak and a progressive settle down, as is already happening in some of the countries in suffering this situation at first instance.

In conclusion, let’s be confident and keep working as a team, following the decisions from the competent authorities. Some events have been canceled and others are being rescheduled to a new date in which we may be able to celebrate with our athletes and friends our passion for sport and healthy lifestyle.

We recommend you visit the IFBB Calendar at our website on a regular basis, so that you may be fully updated on events and schedule.

Wishing you, your families and beloved one’s good health, and hoping that the situation will be back to normality as soon as possible

All the events that were planned for March and April are being postponed and rescheduled
