I was hoping to enter this event as a competitor, but the link does not seem to be working. Is registration closed, or has it not been opened yet?
January 1st, 2019 16:31
Thanks for checking Calvin! The only entry portal has not been opened yet, it should be within the next couple of weeks, we will send out announcements when it is active so stay tuned. Look forward to having you in the 25th annual Natural Iowa!

I am trying to apply for my membership card and it won't let me submit the form. This is on the NANBF website. I also tried to send them a message and it said I could not submit it.
January 13th, 2019 20:43
Thanks for reaching out Chelsea. The NANBF membership site has been down for maintenance, we hope that it is up and running again on 1/14/19.

Is the pro tan something we do on our own or is it provided? I know some professional events provided tanning services, but was curious if you guys did or not. (Didnt see a tanning service in the sponsors so I was curious)
January 30th, 2019 17:05
Great question Trevor. Yes, spray tanning services will be available. They will be set up at the host hotel and onsite at the event. Book your spots early to get your preferred appointment time.

How do you reserve an appointment for Pro Tan?
April 10th, 2019 16:23
James, when you enter, you should get an auto-response email with information on how to set up a spray tan appointment. Let us know if you didn't receive it, thanks!

I read that we will be polygraphed three days ahead of time???? If I am coming in on Friday night from Mpls, how could that work? I am 60 and want to compete in the over 50. Never did a drug in my life!
March 12th, 2019 20:20
Hi Mark, Those that are coming in from out-of-town will polygraph on Friday. When you enter, you will be directed to select that day based on your address.

What requirements do I have to meet as a competitor at 18 years old 150 pounds 5ft 3in
March 12th, 2019 20:19
Great question Peyton, the primary requirement is that you are natural per the guidelines here: https://www.nanbf.net/anti-doping
March 2nd, 2019 21:37
It says Wednesday May 3rd is the Registration Cut off, but May 3rd is on Fri. I just wanted to verify the cut off date. Thank you!!
March 12th, 2019 20:26
Good catch Rikki! It should say Friday, May 3rd, we'll adjust on our end, thanks!

I’m competing in Classic Physique Novice. What are the poses for Classic Physique this year?
March 12th, 2019 20:17
See link here: https://naturaliowamuscle.com/nanbf-classic-physique-criteria-guidelines/ Classic physique competitors should also be prepared to do traditional bodybuilding poses as they are optional poses as well.
March 26th, 2019 11:41
Hi Ryan, would you please confirm what the host hotel is? I think I heard West Des Moines Marriott, but I noticed the Downtown Marriott is much closer to Hoyt Sherman Place. Would you also please advise on how to book my spray tan? Thank you!
March 26th, 2019 15:01
Hi Annie! It is the West Des Moines Marriott (their facilities are better suited to handle a bodybuilding competition with check-in, spray tan, polygraphing and after party. There should be a link with your entry confirmation to schedule the tanning. Thanks for reaching out!
March 27th, 2019 13:34
What are the posing guidelines for physique?
March 28th, 2019 14:29
Luke, see here for Classic: https://www.nanbf.net/classic-physique Let me know if you are referring to a different category?
April 5th, 2019 9:48
Just normal physique, will it be 3 qtr turns or just front and back?
April 5th, 2019 16:34
Men's physique will be quarter turns. Let us know if you have any other questions, thanks!
April 8th, 2019 9:41
On the figure T-Walk is it 2 or 1 pose per spot? I thought it was just one pose for a total of 3 poses but reading on https://www.nanbf.net/figure it's two poses per spot for a total of 6 poses. It also said to not do bodybuilding poses, so just trying to figure out what posing to do so I'm practicing the right thing. Also will you be hosting another posing clinic before this show?
April 16th, 2019 9:05
I confirmed a polygraph appointment. I decided to compete in a show two weeks before this one. I will STILL BE COMPETING HERE. How do I cancel my polygraph appointment?
April 16th, 2019 13:22
Scott, Great question. If it is an NANBF contest (Southern States I assume) then yes, you would just polygraph there and cancel the one scheduled at Iowa. You should be able to click on the link that you scheduled it and cancel. Otherwise, send an email to email@example.com letting us know you canceled. Thank you
April 25th, 2019 9:42
Do you have a final schedule yet?

I would like to schedule a polygraph test
May 1st, 2019 14:27
What are the approximate start times/ order of the different classes throughout the day for those that are going to watch a specific class for that day?
May 5th, 2019 13:50
I have a question. This is my first bodybuilding contest. Do we have to pay for tanning and the polygraph test.
