FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What time will my class be on stage?:

The only confirmed time is the event start time. Competitions can run faster or slower depending on various factors.

I live in a different country and would like an invitation letter inviting me to Canada to compete in this event:

We are not able to provide any invitation letters. The "Toronto Naturals" and the "Legend's Super Cup" are open to anyone in Canada who have purchased a 2024 CPA membership.

I have a Pro Card in another federation:

To compete in this event you cannot have a pro status, you must relinquish your pro status with the other federation. A form for this purpose can be signed at the Athlete's Meeting.

I am competing in Men's Bodybuilding and Men's Classic Physique, do I need two different posing routines?:

Ideally you should have two different posing routines as they are two completely different categories.

I am competing in 3 Men's Bodybuilding classes, do I need to do 3 posing routines at finals?:

No, since all the classes are in the same category (Men's Bodybuilding), you would only do one posing routine at finals. If you were competing in Men's Bodybuilding and Men's Classic Physique, then you would be required to do two posing routines at finals because those are two different categories.
