New Mexico to Host Major NPC Boby Building Competition

Center Podium Productions brings back a first-class NPC National Qualifier Competition to Rio Rancho, NM, on November 14, 2021

RIO RANCHO, NM (November 5, 2021) – New Mexico’s premier bodybuilding and fitness show, the NPC New Mexico State Open is back and bigger than ever. World-famous bodybuilder, Mr. Olympia, Dexter Jackson, will be there to meet fans and provide a free seminar for athletes and ticket holders thanks to the show’s title sponsor, California Alternative Medicine.

The event is not just for bodybuilding fans; it's an opportunity to meet fitness companies and trainers and find motivation when you see how just a few months of dedication to health and fitness can transform any physique! The athletes' ages can vary between 18 and even 80! 

While the show features competitions among the well-known massive muscles of bodybuilders, it also features a total of eight divisions showcasing a variety of body types. These include more attainable looks like bikini, figure, men's physique, classic physique, women's physique, wellness, and fitness. Many will have the desirable GQ, Men's Health, or Sports Illustrated look. 

Special for this year, the MC for this event is none other than IFBB Pro Bikini Olympian Tamara Jordan Haddad. 

"We have shows around the world, but the response from New Mexicans about this event has topped the charts!" said Chris Minnes, founder of Center Podium Productions. 

This National Physique Committee (NPC) sanctioned national qualifier event will attract 1,500+ spectators and 150+ athletes, and a dozen fitness vendors to the Rio Rancho Events Center.

Attendees will also get the chance to visit eight fitness vendors who will share their latest products and services. These companies will vary from nutrition coaching, personal training, health optimization, fitness apparel, and supplements! The products can assist anyone in achieving their health and fitness goals from simply dropping a pant size, gaining muscle, recovering from workouts faster, or becoming a star on the bodybuilding stage.

The title sponsor of the event is California Alternative Medicine. Other key sponsors are Team FFLEX, Bosque Aesthetics, A.C. Grace Company, and Mobile Muscle Sports Nutrition. Vendors at the expo include the sponsors mentioned above and IAC Lifestyle Apparel, Muscle Egg, and Fit Mania Meals.
