IFBB Pro League Advisory Notice on Muscle Size


IFBB Pro League Advisory Notice on Muscle Size. Jim Manion, President of the IFBB Pro League, issues the following letter to all IFBB Pro Athletes and Judges.

From: IFBB Pro League
To: IFBB Pro Athletes and Judges
Date: November 13, 2015
Subject: MUSCLE SIZE

The popularity of the IFBB Pro League continues to grow as a result of many factors the introduction of more achievable, less muscular physiques in the Figure and Bikini and the new divisions of Women’s and Men’s Physique.

All of the athletes who have competed in these divisions have represented the IFBB Pro League well. That being said, there has been a noticeable increase in muscle size across all of these divisions.

We would like to remind all athletes and judges that muscle size is only one of the many factors in judging competitors in these divisions.

In order to preserve the criteria in which all of these divisions were based on, we would like to see less focus on muscle size and more focus on symmetry, balance, proportion, definition and overall condition which are all equally important factors contributing to an aesthetically pleasing and fit physique.

We look forward to seeing all of you during the 2016 IFBB Pro League contest season.

Jim Manion
President
IFBB Pro League

About 11 years ago the IFBB issued a statement to all female athletes that read…

Date:December 6, 2004
From: Office of the Vice Chairman
IFBB Professional Division
To: All IFBB Professional Female Athletes
Re: FEMALE MUSCULARITY

For aesthetics and health reasons, the IFBB Professional Division requests that female athletes in Bodybuilding, Fitness and Figure decrease the amount of muscularity by a factor of 20%.

This request for a 20% decrease in the amount of muscularity applies to those female athletes whose physiques require the decrease regardless of whether they compete in Bodybuilding, Fitness or Figure.

All professional judges have been advised of the proper criteria for assessing female physiques.

Sincerely,

Jim Manion
Vice Chairman

Nike SNOW DAY Features Carli Lloyd and…


Nike Snow Day
“SNOW DAY” FILM KICKS OFF NIKE’S #GETOUTHERE WINTER TRAINING CAMPAIGN
Snow days evoke memories of snowball fights, time off from school and the urge to get outside and play, no matter how harsh the weather. Just ask pro football players Rob Gronkowski and Ndamukong Suh, who each lead a team of world-class athletes in “Snow Day,” a new film from Nike Training. In the film, an overnight blizzard entices the athletes, from an array of sports, to face off and play a fun but ferociously competitive game of tackle football in the snow.

Roads are closed. School is cancelled. The game is on. Get out here.

Featuring with Rob Gronkowski, Ndamukong Suh, LeSean McCoy, Luke Kuechly, Odell Beckham Jr., Ben Roethlisberger, Paul George, Paula Findlay, Antonio Brown, Marlen Esparza, Eric Weddle, Lauren Fisher, Marcus Mariota, Sydney Leroux, Le’Veon Bell, Draymond Green, Eugenie Bouchard, Steven Stamkos, Elena Delle Donne, A. J. Green, Carli Lloyd

“Snow Day” kicks off Nike’s #GetOutHere campaign, which highlights key products (such as Nike Therma-Sphere Max and AeroReact), services and inspiration for athletes at every level who want to train and embrace winter weather. Additionally, for the first time, Nike.com allows consumers to filter product searches by specific weather conditions such as Freezing, Cold, Cool and Dark.

Pro athletes featured in the film include: Rob Gronkowski, Ndamukong Suh, Odell Beckham Jr., Le’Veon Bell, Eugenie Bouchard, Antonio Brown, Elena Delle Donne, Marlen Esparza, Paula Findlay, Lauren Fisher, Paul George, A.J. Green, Draymond Green, Luke Kuechly, Sydney Leroux, Carli Lloyd, Marcus Mariota, LeSean McCoy, Ben Roethlisberger, Eric Weddle and Steven Stamkos. In addition to the film, a behind-the-scenes video (below) features many of the cast reminiscing about their favorite snow day memories.

“Snow Day” will run October 29 on Nike digital channels and TV during Thursday Night Football, when the New England Patriots take on the Miami Dolphins. The film was created by Nike and Portland-based agency Wieden + Kennedy.

As as part of the #GetOutHere campaign, Nike is on an extensive search to find the 48 most weather-defying athletes to compete in the Get Out Here Challenge, the ultimate cold-weather training experience, to be held in Chicago the week of December 8, 2015.

Amazon.com Named Official Retail Sponsor of the 2015 Olympia


American Media, Inc. Announces Amazon.com as “Official Retail Sponsor” of 2015 Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend
NEW YORK, August 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – American Media, Inc. (AMI) today announced that Amazon.com would be the official retail sponsor of the world famous Olympia Fitness & Performance weekend in 2015 – which is likely to be the highest attended weekend yet.

The 2015 Olympia Weekend is ‘Presented by’ title sponsor Ultimate Nutrition and will be ‘Brought to you’ by our new official retail sponsor Amazon.com. It consists of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition and the Fitness & Performance Expo. Mr. Olympia offers fans a chance to see the world’s greatest bodybuilders in action. At the Expo, men and women with a passion for health and fitness can discover the latest nutritional supplements and try the newest workout gear. With a record setting 55,000 in attendance and over 1,000 exhibitor booths last year, the event continues to grow as even more fans and brands are expected in 2015. The Expo and competition will be held in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Orleans Arena on September 17-20.

The Amazon.com Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend sponsorship will include a considerable amount of features. For the Mr. Olympia competition, Amazon.com will be the exclusive sponsor of the live video stream, which generated 4 million views last year. And along with Ultimate Nutrition’s logo, the Amazon.com logo will be positioned alongside the official Olympia logo wherever it is displayed at the Orleans Arena and LVCC, including the main stage at the Expo where popular contests such as the Bikini Model Search, Men’s Model Search, Kick Boxing and the Strongman Challenge are held.

“With Amazon being the world’s premier online retailer, we couldn’t think of a better retail sponsor for the Mr. Olympia weekend. Amazon has shown a great appreciation for the sport of bodybuilding and the culture that has grown with it,” said AMI Chairman, CEO and President David Pecker. “This is a win-win for everyone, as Amazon will surely strengthen its presence amongst the fitness community while Olympia gets the ultimate retail sponsor.”

24 Hour Fitness Re-Launches Apex Product Line


24 Hour Fitness Re-Launches Apex Product Line
Simplified Ingredients, New, Clean Packaging and Bold, New Brand Image Revealed
SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Apex, the exclusive supplement brand of 24 Hour Fitness, is introducing new products that align more closely with consumer desire for product ingredient transparency and straightforward formulations. Produced in the U.S. under strict USDA guidelines, the product line benefits all ages and fitness levels.

The new Apex product formulations reduce the formerly lengthy ingredient list to as few as seven identifiable ingredients. Among the products launched are two protein powder formulations: 100% whey isolate and a whey concentrate/isolate blend, as well as fitness supplements that support performance. A vegan formulation is currently in development. “We invested significant time researching the latest advancements in formulations and flavoring, then collaborated with sports nutrition experts to develop clean products with clear purpose and exceptional taste,” said Andrew Dottermusch, Senior Director, Retail, 24 Hour Fitness. Aside from its role supporting the development of lean muscle, increasing evidence links whey protein supplementation to overall health, providing support to the immune system, and aiding in management of blood pressure and stress. With proper use, a protein supplement can also help curb appetite and support metabolic function, assisting with weight loss goals.*

In addition to new formulations, Apex will launch a bold, new brand image and modern packaging. The protein powder has been redesigned in a tall, two pound jug with clean lines and a built in handle—reusable and recyclable. The product is also available in single serve multi-packs—handy when traveling or on the go. Additional supplement powders feature a similar bold, modern packaging design and easy open cap.

While the attractive, new Apex product packaging represents an evolutionary brand advancement, it leaves plenty of room to showcase the simplified ingredient list, appealing taste, and broad range of flavors (Traditional–Classic Chocolate, Gourmet Vanilla, Fruit Punch, Unflavored; New-Tiramisu, Cookie Dough, Guava Lemongrass, to name a few).

Dottermusch added, “We conducted a national member survey to determine protein powder preferences and what motivates use. As a result, these are quality products at a great value that appeal to first-time buyers as well as those more experienced in the use of supplements. We want to take the mystery out of protein powder and supplements and are investing in educational tools and staff training to further consumer understanding, confidence and product use to serve all fitness levels and everyday life.”

Apex products are available in all clubs now with additional supplements, including vitamins, scheduled to launch in clubs by year end. Apex products contain no proprietary blends, and they are manufactured in the USA to conform to strict USDA production protocols. Additional information: apexfitness.com
