BIKINI COMPETITION

The NGA recognizes that fitness takes on many levels. The purpose of this division is to allow athletes who are physically fit, hold a strong image for stage and camera, compete in a fair and drug free arena. We are looking for fit, toned, proportionate builds, with feminine shape and conditioning that is universal in appeal.

GUIDELINES Competitive Components:

The overall image of the athlete is a toned, sculpted physique that bears firmness, non- evident body fat and a fitness style. This translates to an overall body quality with mild definition and not muscular separation. Athletes will want to give the impression that they work out, did more than just diet to get there, and can maintain this impression long after the curtain closes.

Throughout the competition, Judges will take into account the following:

  1. Balance and symmetry: Upper torso is as developed as lower, side to side and back to front. Muscle groups are complete and in proportion and not overly developed or defined.
  2. Tone and Condition: Athleticism in its truest form is seen as a tight and toned physique. We ask that athletes bring a totally fit look to the stage. This includes complexion, face, hair, smile, and beauty.
  3. Poise and presentation: How an athlete carries themselves, posture, gait, balance, graceful movement, positioning, stature, and finesse.
  4. Style and stage presence: Athletes own self-expression, appeal, how athlete projects themselves, image, camera savvy, stance, posing in creative and attractive ways. Athletes overall look is important and should include a sense of vibrancy, charisma, confidence, sex appeal, a positive and fun attitude, personality and individual style.
  5. A suit that enhances their physique. Pay attention to style, fit, colors, a flattering suit that may be decorated and made to order for the ladies. Micros and thongs are prohibited. Clear high heels.

 PREJUDGING (DAY SHOW)

  1. Comparisons The class is brought out and half turns are called. Present a confident stance, but not overly flexed. Arms and leg positions are at athlete’s discretion. Facings are from front and back. Relaxed poses that show off the athlete’s overall tone and condition are required. Officials may move athletes around for comparisons. As a group, the class will be instructed to pose, walk to the back, face the judges then walk to the front.

Bikini poses will consist of front and back only. Competitors may not bend over when executing the back pose (see figure below). Points may be deducted if the Bikini competitor bends over during the back pose. The back stance will present the entire back of the bikini body presenting balance and symmetry. One hand shall be placed on the hip; the other hand/arm is gracefully extended to the side. The side with the extended arm will also showcase an extended leg to the side. The upper torso will be upright to present the tone and condition of the upper back with a slight and evident v-taper to the lower back.
