The Musclemania® Classic Division is for men who want to display their complete physique in a classic, symmetry, beach body form. However, unlike Bodybuilding and Physique Divisions, the Classic Division features competitors wearing brief shorts while presenting themselves on stage in individual posing, class line-ups and comparisons. They will be judged based equally upon their Symmetry, Size, Muscle Condition and Presentation. The height classes will be determined after check-in at the show to ensure equal class sizes in the show. There are no limits to competitor weights regardless of height regardless how light or heavy the competitor.

Professional spray tanning services are available at most shows. Please check show details. Tanning creams are banned at Musclemania® and Fitness Universe Shows.


Because the Musclemania® Championships are natural bodybuilding events, all competitors will be subjected to urinalysis sampling at check-in at the show and Top 5 Finalists’ samples will be tested. If a contestant tests positive for any listed banned substances, he/she will be disqualified from the competition, forfeit any prizes and/or rewards and be unable to compete in any Musclemania® event worldwide for at least 2 years. Also, if a contestant refuses to submit to drug testing or attempts to manipulate and/or alter a urinalysis sample, then he/she will be immediately disqualified from the competition.
