PCA USA brings big changes to competitive bodybuilding and physique events in New Mexico on July 21st. Athletes will experience the through-show concept and top competitors will receive invitations to compete in the Pro Am.
Albuquerque, NM: For immediate release
The bodybuilding and fitness community took notice when the Physical Culture Association (PCA), a leading International Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation based in the United Kingdom, announced their expansion into the United States late 2017. Now seven months later, local and international athletes are prepping for the upcoming Duke City Classic. This will be PCA USA’s first New Mexico event to be held in Albuquerque on July 21st, 2018.
PCA is well-known for providing athletes with an improved and exceptional competitive experience. As part of PCA USA’s athlete-centric approach, competitors are supported throughout their training, have additional divisions to choose from when competing, and once on stage will be assessed using clearly defined criteria for body condition, posing, and attire by a trained and fair judging panel.
The Duke City Classic is organized by promoter Sef Vigil, a local firefighter and football player. Guest posers will include prominent bodybuilders David Henry and Dusty Hanshaw.
“I’ve been watching how professional bodybuilding has changed over the years, along with the exciting progress that PCA was making internationally,” said Vigil. “I wanted to be the one to bring PCA’s improved competitive experience to the United States, specifically my home state New Mexico. Competitors and guests alike will see a huge and positive difference during our show.”
One big development is the through-show concept, which was brought over from the Official PCA in the United Kingdom. During a through-show, competitors will no longer be required to attend the exhausted process of morning judging and an evening show, which involves undue hardships on athletes as they attempt to prep for peak muscle condition twice in one day.
In addition, the morning judging and night show custom incurs extra expenses for competitors and their guests. With PCA’s through-show, athletes prep once, show off their best physique in group and single routines, and are awarded placements before walking off stage.
During the New Mexico event, amateurs who win their class will be given an invitation to compete in a Pro Am at the end of the show. Existing pros from all bodybuilding federations can register to compete in the PCA Pro Am Categories. Plus, PCA USA will be looking for athletes to form their international competitive team.
Men’s events include physique, classic, lightweight, middleweight and heavy weight body building, masters, juniors, and disAbled bodybuilding.
Women’s events include bikini, figure, trained bikini, physique, masters, and disAbled bodybuilding.
