Natural Bodybuilding Competitions Schedule 

I’ve created this post to inform natural bodybuilders about the local natural bodybuilding competitions taking place in 2023.  I’ll list a decent number of shows, but the main shows that I list will be closer to the Philadelphia area.

If you need to check the schedule for shows that I haven’t listed, you can check out some other great resources like the NGA and OCB official websites.  I just want to provide some information so that you can make a decision on possibly competing this year.

There are more shows taking place than what I’ve listed but I just want you all to have some of the information.  This could be the year you start your natural bodybuilding journey, or it could be the year you win your pro card.  Or it could be both!

Getting started in natural bodybuilding can be a daunting task.  But if you are interested in contest prep services from a professional natural bodybuilder, contact me here.
