Expanding the INBF Brand
This show will be professionally promoted and produced by Nancy Andrews, WNBF President and 5x WNBF Bodybuilding Pro, and Kristin Fonseca, WNBF Bodybuilding and Fit Body Pro
Andrews and Fonseca will head up a team of support staff with decades of experience, ensuring a top-notch event with full amenities, including a professional photographer, tanning and make-up.
This new show provides a great option for those newbies who want to “get their feet wet” in natural competition. It’s also an opportunity for intermediate and advanced athletes who may be preparing for 3 other well-established shows that attract top competitors from CT and NY: the INBF Natural Connecticut and the INBF Autumn Explosion and WNBF US Pro Cup.
SpringMania is also a great event for new or seasoned athletes from around New England and New York, conveniently located with a 2 hour drive of:
- Boston, MA
- Nashua, NH
- Albany, NY
- Providence, RI

True Natural Competition
As with all WNBF/INBF events, SpringMania competitors will undergo strict drug-testing, including a successful polygraph test that is within 6 weeks of the show date. All competitors will also be subject to random testing during the event. Class winners must pass a urine test, as well. This stringent drug testing is why WNBF and INBF athletes have been at the pinnacle of natural bodybuilding competition for over 30 years.
A Competitive Advantage
Both new and experienced athletes can take advantage of the extensive knowledge of fitness industry expert Michele Welcome in a series of posing classes taking place in the weeks before SpringMania.
As a WNBF/INBF judge, her critical eye will help you develop the posing skills that define champions. Over the course of 5 half-day sessions you will learn the criteria judges use to compare athletes in all classes and categories.
The series will culminate in a “dress rehearsal” at the venue, providing a distinct edge for SpringMania competitors. Classes begin March 22, 2020, so contact Michele at [email protected]. You can learn more about Michele at learntopose.com.
