WNBF Philippines is represented by Mitch and fellow international fitness guru Chris Byrne, and they are internationally known as two of the best Filipino-Canadian fitness icons in North America today.

The Philippine affiliation of the WNBF aims to promote natural bodybuilding in the country and to demonstrate that athletes do not need to use steroids or other harmful, illegal substances to get strong and beautiful bodies.

With top foreign judges from Canada and the USA, most notably Tina Smith and Bob Bell, the president and vice president of the WNBF, the parent organization, the first competition is already attracting amazing competitors from around the country and the world. Male and female athletes locally and from all over the world will compete in the event’s bodybuilding, physique, figure and bikini categories.
