The Look:
Physique participants should expect to be within the following physical parameters at time of competition:
A strong presentation of overall athleticism
Well-formed musculature throughout the entire body, in all areas
A comprehensive level of tone and conditioning
A personal style of attractiveness, polish and stage presence
Presentation of shape and balance with mandatory and free style poses
This look falls into line with the “Not as developed, striated or vascular as a bodybuilder, more akin to Fitness Model stature.”

The Judges:
NGA judges will consist of experienced fitness, figure, beauty and performance professionals. A panel of five to seven impartial men and women will be scoring judges. High and low scores will be dropped and a placing system will be used. The head judge may be a scoring official. Ethical concerns are at the discretion of the NGA, the promoter and its’ officials.
