The Musclemania, Figure, Fitness and Bikini Professional Divisions are exclusive events to qualified natural athletes.

Musclemania Professionals

Because Musclemania Pros are a respected group of the finest natural bodybuilders in the sport, qualification is challenging. Currently, athletes can qualify and earn their professional status only by winning selected events and/or weight classes.  Professionals in other natural bodybuilding federations may qualify only by competing in Musclemania amateur or international events. Musclemania Professionals who subsequently compete in other federations will lose their MM Professional status and need to requalify at a Musclemania regional, national or international competition to regain their status.

Figure Professionals

Beginning in June, 2012, selected Regional, National and International competitions began to qualify and endorse those women who compete and qualify for the new Figure Pro elite division of competition. Also, through the 2012 season, a limited number of applications from former Open Division winners were accepted.

Professionals in other natural federations may qualify only by competing in Musclemania, Figure & Fitness & Bikini amateur or international qualifying events. Figure Professionals who subsequently compete in other federations will lose their Figure Professional status and need to re-qualify at a Musclemania, Figure & Fitness & Bikini amateur or international competition to regain their status. Figure Professionals must compete at least once every 24 months to maintain their active status

Bikini Professionals ( New in 2014 )

Beginning in June, 2014, selected Regional, National and International competitions began to qualify and endorse those women who compete and qualify for this new, Bikini Pro elite division of competition. Also, through the 2014 season, a limited number of applications from  former Open Division winners will be accepted.

New Bikini Pros may still compete in 2014 Open Division competitions without any consequence to their 2014 Professional status regardless of their placing. Consequently, if a new 2013 Bikini Professional competes in an 2014 Open Division competition and earns a placing qualifying for Professional status, then the qualification will be assigned to the next highest placing competitor.

Professionals in other natural federations may qualify only by competing in Musclemania, Figure & Fitness & Bikini amateur or international qualifying events.
