U-Phorm’S annual Fitness Britain Natural Championships is only in its third season but is growing bigger every year and is already known as the most recognized fitness and natural bodybuilding show across the UK and Europe!
After two years at The Alban Arena, show promoters decided upgrade the venue to a seaside resort and picked The Spa Pavilion in Felixstowe as the perfect location.
This year’s event will see the re-introduction of the Novice divisions to allow newcomers a chance to compete on an international stage alongside our continued commitment to support teen and junior divisions.
Only in their late teens and already legends in the local community, Escape Reality free running group will be making a guest appearance and video presentation of their trip to Fitness Universe in Miami, which is scheduled this coming June. Ironically, the extreme acrobatic group have visited the roof tops of the Spa Pavilion on several occasions during the past few years with mixed reviews from theatre management! As fate would have it, they will be performing inside the building this year, which will be welcomed by their fans and health & safety officers across the county.
For the first time in the 30 year history of the Fitness Universe and Musclemania World Tour, the Britain Championships announces that the overall winner of all men’s and women’s divisions will be eligible for a Professional status including Musclemania women, Figure, Fitness, Bikini, and Model divisions. In addition, the Musclemania Junior Champion (under 22 years of age) will receive an honorary Junior Pro Status with consideration for employment at vocational training provider U-Phorm, who host the event.
With the success of the European Championships held in St Albans Arena last September, British athletes are welcoming the new international status and a chance to progress to higher levels of competition on the world stage including Las Vegas and Miami where events attract over 600 athletes!
The new location in Felixstowe will see the launch of the official Miss Bikini Britain calendar talent search in cooperation with Fit Body Promotions, one of the hottest new agencies that specialize in developing talent within the world of competitive fitness. The seaside location offers photo ops on the beach, under the pier, and in the gardens located just above the promenade.
Julie Howes, Theatre Manager “The Fitness Britain Championships is a very different event to what is usually hosted at The Spa Pavilion but we are really looking forward to welcoming competitors to the venue. I’m sure that the event will generate a lot of interest from the press and audiences alike as it is just so different from anything we have had here before. Tickets are available to anyone and not just open to the families of those competing”
