 What is NABBA?
NABBA is the abbreviation for National Amateur Bodybuilders Association. It was founded in 1950 in England to give United Kingdom bodybuilders a unified and strong organization in which to compete, and to give the athletes publicity and recognition. As bodybuilders from countries all over the world began to compete at the Universe, their countries' organizations joined NABBA and NABBA INTERNATIONAL was formed. NABBA International currently consists of more than 40 active nations making it the second largest world-wide bodybuilding federation.
NABBA USA is also an affiliate of NABBA International - a federation of over fifty countries. We are also an associate member of the World Fitness Federation (WFF) whose competitions have many categories depending on the athlete's age and body type. Top NABBA USA athletes will be invited to represent the USA at WFF international events. (more
