NOVICE: (Note Novice class is only open at qualifiers NOT final events)
A Novice is an athlete who has never placed in the top 3 of a competition in any previous season.
Your status as a novice lasts the duration of a season. Athletes who have won a regional, national title, or competed internationally as a masters, bikini, fit body or bodybuilding competitor are not eligible to be considered a novice.
This is the open Bikini class. The division may be split into short and tall classes depending on the number of competitors. The division will be split as follows:
Short, under 163 cm tall
Tall, over 163 cm tall
Bikini is a “softer” and lighter muscled look than our other competitive classes with an emphasis on a fit, tight toned physique, especially in the legs and glutes
Bikini competition suits competitors who appear trained and athletic, but without muscular detail, separation and vascularity and whose level of muscle size is lower than those which would be rewarded in the Figure or Fit Body disciplines
The two rounds judged are:
Round #1 - Fitness & Balance
Round shoulders, defined abs, soft lines in legs, and tight glutes
Over lean, muscular, or hard or vascular physiques will be scored down
Round #2 - Physical Appearance/ Stage Walk
The overall appearance of the athlete. Stage presentation, suit choice, tanning, hair,
makeup, etc. is encompassed in this round.
