Continuing with our the “NABBA/WFF” explained theme, I decided to get the inside perspective on what it's like to compete on a NABBA/WFF stage-as explained by one of the federations top current athletes;

Mark Anderson (
2011 Southern Hemisphere overall champion and 2nd place Mr World 2012), who is pictured here with Steve Orton -reigning NABBA WFF Mr NZ and Eastcoast muscle athlete!  
Mark gives us his insights on why he decided to compete NABBA/WFF in the first place, his personal gains/highlights and advice to other athletes considering competing in a show.


  2010 was the year that NABBA/WFF first appeared on the NZ bodybuilding scene, and although it seems as it's come out of nowhere, it's an affiliation of two federations, each carrying it's own history.

Helping NABBA/WFF garner attention is the fact that some of NZ's top athletes have already strutted their stuff on the NABBA/WFF stage. Like many others curious athletes I wanted to find out more about this federation, it's history, philosophies and just what was attracting the athletes.


I often get emails from people who are interested in competing in a bodybuilding/figure show and wondered how much the whole process would cost.

So I thought I would breakdown the cost of the expenses you'll need to incur based on a 12 week contest prep.  Now best to sit down and read this as you might fall down from the figures displayed!

Competing is not cheap but for many the investment is worthwhile when they see the new body revealed on stage.  Afterall its going to be the best you'll ever look and you can't put a price on that!

Well the big day has arrived and it's your turn to show everyone what you've
been up to over the last few months. Here's some tips to help you enjoy this amazing moment and look forward to it with anticipation rather than dread.
I think the best approach is to think of the things that can go wrong.
Prepare yourself for the worst case scenario and then what have you left to fear?
