**APRIL 19, 2020 NPF COVID-19 UPDATE PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CHANGES CAREFULLY**
As you all know this past week we got a detailed look at the plan of action for reopening our businesses, to include gyms and event spaces. While much is left to determine an exact timeline, and given that the rate of which each individual state can safely navigate through the 3 stages will most certainly vary, and additionally the limitations that have been invoked upon events and public gatherings, it is a foregone conclusion that our rescheduled date of May 31, 2020 for Battle of Ohio/Mr & Ms Pro Ohio will have to be canceled with no current plans to reschedule.
We regret this unavoidable loss of our fast growing and exciting annual NPF Columbus event, and even more so, share the pain of those of you that were hanging in there and prepping despite home workouts and limited dieting capabilities.
The ALL NEW EXCITING NPF STRENGTH GAMES that were slated to run with Battle of Ohio, WILL BE RESCHEDULED with the new date announced sometime in May.
NPF 101 CLINIC that was originally scheduled for March 21, 2020, and then POSTPONED TO APRIL 26 will be POSTPONED once again with the new date announced once again sometime in May.

LATEST BREAKING NEWS!
3/1/2020 - NPF PRO Big Payouts Once again apply to 2020 PRO shows
Thanks to generous sponsors, contributors and supporters of the NPF, a much needed giving back to the athletes is possible and effective immediately. Starting with the May 30/31, 2020 Battle of Ohio and PRO Mr & Ms Natural Ohio, GUARANTEED payouts for PRO's are as follows:
FIRST PLACE - 2000.00
SECOND PLACE - 1200.00
THIRD PLACE - 800.00
12/17/19 - *AMATEURS NOW ELIGIBLE FOR CASH PAYOUTS!*
Any athletes who finish in the top 3 of an amateur open class at NPF sanctioned contests will be immediately qualified to enter the equivalent pro class, therefore competing for a payout at that same contest.
• Said amateur athletes would be required to pay to enter the pro class at the given pro entry fee - but would NOT be required to purchase any additional memberships.
• First place finisher in an open amateur class is still eligible to earn an NPF PRO card.
• Furthermore, a third, or second place finisher, or a first place finisher who isn’t awarded a pro card (due to class size not meeting minimum requirements AND not awarded on judges merit), at ANY and ALL amateur PRO/AM designated qualifier(s), is eligible to pre-register to compete in both amateur and pro classes at an NPF PRO/AM for given calendar year. An athlete may choose to do this as they may still be seeking to win a pro card, but also want to exercise their right to compete for cash. Once the pro card is earned, that athlete is then only eligible to compete in pro classes, and is no longer eligible to compete in amateur classes.
• This new NPF policy has no effect on our current PRO athletes. As we have since our inception, the NPF continues its policy of "once a pro always a pro." Therefore, there is no need to requalify for pro status, even after a long term layoff.
11/20/19 - *NEW CATEGORIES FOR 2020 UNVEILED AT NPF SANDOWS SHOW*
If you were not in attendance at the 2019 NPF Sandows you missed a sneak peak at the details of the TWO NEW divisions that are being added to 2020 NPF shows. If you missed it, weep not! Here they are:
NEW 2020 Divisions: Men's Power Body, Women's Power Body, and Fitness Model.
The Power Body classes, for both men and women, will encompass a lifting for total reps segment for the Prejudging portion of the show, then a physique round with comparisons and compulsory posing at Finals that will be judged live. Each athlete's scores from the lifting round will be combined with their respective points from the physique round to determine placings at Finals. The purpose of this division is to find the athletes who not only possesses a look of being fit, but also can demonstrate it...power and body!
The Fitness Model class, which was demonstrated at both Prejudging and Finals of the Sandows show, is a new division for the ladies only and features the competitor being judged at Prejudging while wearing basic workout attire, doing quarter turns and compulsories, then returning to the stage for Finals in an evening fashion dress to be onced again judged live. Scores will be combined from Prejudging and Finals to determine placings. The purpose of this division is to find and recognize the ladies who are best suited to be fitness models in our industry.
More in-depth information for these two new divisions will be forthcoming...
