THE NPF BATTLE OF OHIO Pro Qualifier & PRO Mr. & Ms. Ohio, now in it's 2nd year, was the very first NPF sanctioned show. The show currently serves as our anchor show, as it is based in our hometown of Columbus, Ohio, where we were founded in late 2016. The Battle of Ohio, along with all NPF events, was created to provide a platform for those who choose to train drug free and compete with like athletes in Bodybuilding, Physique, Figure, Bikini and Transformation. This platform furthermore provides a place for the natural athlete to advance upward into the national and professional ranks while still competing with a level playing field of natural, drug-tested competitors. And, no, we are not limited to only in state residents. The Battle of Ohio - and ALL of our shows - are OPEN SHOWS, open to those who reside outside the respective state where the competition is taking place. In addition to being an OVERALL CHAMPION in your respective category, you will also be awarded a coveted NPF PRO Card in any NPF PQ designated event!
You will notice that some of our shows are designated PRO/AM. These shows feature both an amateur PQ, as well as a separate PRO event and/or classes. The second segment of our show, The PRO CLASSES is an opportunity to not only win guaranteed cash payouts for every division. but also to boast the title of top natural PRO in your region, country or internationally! An example is, Mr. or Ms. Ohio as the top professional competitor in your respective division in the state of Ohio . To qualify to compete in the NPF as a pro, you simply need to hold a current or previous year's NPF pro membership card, or a PRO membership with any of the recognized competitive federations/associations/leagues. Again, as an example, upon registering for the Mr. & Ms. Ohio, you would be asked to provide documentation to support your status as a pro (organization(s) with which you hold professional status, what show and where you won your pro card, which category, etc. We guarantee payouts to the Top 3 in every show regardless of competitor turnout. And, our payouts are UNLIMITED! Meaning, the more that enter a category, the BIGGER the payout - NO CEILING! This assures that our PRO's always go home with CASH WINNINGS. Furthermore, payouts are fair across the board. Women have the ability at our shows to win just as much CASH as the men do. if not more, again, because it is based on competitor turnout in your class.
Both our amateurs and professional athletes are subjected to full 3 panel drug testing standards and judged by the most experienced, natural judges in the industry.
