All novice men and women bodybuilders are invited to participate in the Mr. and Ms. Body Fit 2022 on May 7 at Builders Xtreme Gym in La Trinidad, Benguet.

The event, organized by the Builders Gym, is open to all ages with the registration set until May 6.

Organizers said participants must not have been part of the top three winners in any previous physique or bikini events, but novices who have not won in any top three positions in previous competitions are allowed to join.

Women’s attire should be a standard bikini set with three to four-inch heeled shoes while men should wear board shorts and must be barefoot.

Participants must not use any artificial tanning or body bronzing paints, but body oil is accepted.

Criteria for judging will be based on posing and overall appearance at 20 percent, visibility of muscle separation at 50 percent, and body proportion at 30 percent.

Winners for both men (novice physique) and women’s category (beginner’s bikini) will receive P7,000 and one year gym subscription for the champion; P5,000 and six months gym subscription for first runner-up; P3,000 plus five months subscription for second runner-up; P2,000 plus four months subscription for third runner-up; and P1,000 plus three months subscription for fourth runner-up.

All the winners will receive a trophy and certificate.
