Calling all athletes, trainers, event promoters, fitness enthusiasts and prize providers! Take the Challenge & win exposure on TV, movies, magazines and on stage!

Your Body! Your Goals! Your Time to Shine! #bodyproud

BodyPROUD is about being proud of your physique and how you attain, maintain and retain it.

We got involved in the fitness industry over 20 years ago and launched an event series that swept the world and helped pioneer the natural bodybuilding market bridging it with entertainment, opportunity and exposure. The events turned into expos and television shows and the stories were captured in magazines and film and it inspired millions worldwide.

The tour grew bigger and faster than we thought, taking our focus away from what we really set out to do: help the fitness industry take their “walking billboard status” to the mainstream.

Today, we sit amongst a team of key influencers and imprint leaders in the areas of fitness, media and empowerment providing access to television (new media, social media and traditional broadcast media), movies, magazines and events. Our purpose is to connect athletes, trainers, prize providers and promotions with gamified pathways and celebration platforms that allow the sharing of information, inspiration and insight both through the industry and to the fans. The prize? Their “fame”.


What we found over the years is that although there are amazing things that happen in the world of fitness there were several things that we found that we knew had to be changed, so we spent the last decade connecting with experts, mentors, coaches and products and brands they support. The goal to solve these key things:

1. bring "health" back into fitness - fromt the inside out

2. provide pathways of opporutnity beyond the stage

3. provide platforms to extend your brand, gain exposure and engage your fans & network

4. provide informaiton, inspiration & insight brining fitness and empowerement together

5. share opporutnies to monetize your experience in the fitness industry


Take the BodyProud Challenge and choose to transform yourself in body and mind. This is about Fitness and Muscle Empowerment ... guiding you on being the best ME possible. 

Choose a perk from any of the participating products, track your experience, share your testimonial and win an opporutnity for paid endorsments contracts, televison exposure, movie and magazine features, speaking engagments and recongnition on accalaimed event stages.
