To represent the biggest and most prestigious natural bodybuilding federation in the world is a dream come true. 

A huge huge thank you to @inba_australia@inbapnbaglobal_official @ironmanmagazine @generationironfor this huge opportunity. 

I would not be here doing what I do at the level I am without the day in day out support, guidance and next level coaching from my coach @s.hipwell and the gym community @muscle_hut_sc 

Love and endless appreciation to my husband and 3 boys, my family and friends who support, encourage and allow me to go next level! 

I will be hitting the international stage this year flying our Australian flag with pride. 

Look forward to meeting the @inbapnbaglobal_official family and fellow athletes. 

Thank you”

Multi-media Contract Details

INBA PNBA athletes who sign this multi-media contract will have many benefits. First, these athletes will get more exposure and promotion, including branding building – social media posts, write-ups, photoshoots -, special guest appearances, and posing and seminar sessions. For example, multi-media athletes Derek Joe and Peter Cichonski gave posing tips to Bunthoeun Ham before the 2022 INBA Capital City Championships. As a result, Ham went on to win the Classic Physique Open, won the Best Poser Award, and earned his PNBA pro card. 

Furthermore, athletes will get Iron Man Magazine nutrition ads and endorsements. Every INBA PNBA competitor that signs a contract has a good standing with the league and agrees to follow the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) guideline – the best drug testing standards in professional sports. 

The INBA PNBA said the following statement concerning the multi-media contract:

“An opportunity for a natural bodybuilding athlete to acquire renown and recognition in the sport of natural bodybuilding, exploiting association’s promotional campaign via the iron man magazine, news and events, and the generation iron platform.”

Natural Bodybuilding’s Expansion

The INBA PNBA is the largest federation in natural bodybuilding, and it’s aiding in expanding the sport. The INBA PNBA gives out the most considerable cash and prizes to their athletes, hosts the most significant natural bodybuilding show – Natural Olympia – and has represented athletes in 60 countries. In addition, the INBA PNBA is now giving natural bodybuilders more publicity through the most prominent bodybuilding outlets – Generation Iron and Iron Man Magazine.

Generation Iron will be tuning in to every INBA PNBA show throughout the year. Click here to see INBA PNBA’s upcoming competition dates
