The WNBF was founded in 1990 in the USA and, in addition to the American core organization, comprises over 40 worldwide partners for example in Mexico, Canada, Philippines, Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, India, Argentina, Australia and in Europe Denmark, Switzerland, Italy, France, UK, Spain and many more.
The mission of the WNBF and its associated associations is to provide a platform for competitions without substances or drugs and without any exceptions. Through over 32 years of stringent doping controls, the WNBF has established itself as the world’s most respected natural organization.
The WNBF acts under the slogan “where the elite competes”. The focus is not only to provide a competitive platform for natural athletes, but also to be a teaching community for fitness, health and bodybuilding.
The WNBF Germany was founded in 2018 and is the exclusive German partner of the WNBF.
Doping controls are top priority at WNBF
The backbone of the WNBF brand image is strict compliance with doping controls. We attach the highest importance to ensuring that our athletes are doping-free, so that we ensure fair competition among ourselves.
The use of doping agents is strictly prohibited
Only athletes who have not taken banned substances for at least 10 years are allowed to participate in competitions of the WNBF Germany. The WNBF Germany doping controls are compliant with the official banned list of substances of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and other substances which the governing body WNBF considers problematic.
Each athlete is always responsible for taking supplements and medications and is obliged to read the prohibited substance lists and to comply with the supplements and medications.
WNBF Germany regularly carries out doping checks. Each athlete must complete a polygraph test and the top 3 of each class must give a urine sample. WNBF Germany may also conduct unannounced doping tests outside the competition season based on random or suspected doping.
Any refusal and negative test will result in an immediate ban of at least ten years and will be sanctioned in accordance with the guidelines of the Doping Commission. The cause of a positive test is irrelevant.
What happens in a polygraph test?
A polygraph test is a lie detector test that takes place in the days just before the competition. This test contains some questions about the use of doping agents and is carried out and evaluated by an expert. Each athlete is required to take a polygraph test and only a passed test grants participation in a competition.
What happens during a urine test?
The winner of each amateur class, as well as the Top 3 of euch pro class must submit a urine sample after receiving the placement. The urine samples are tested and evaluated by an independent accredited laboratory. WNBF Germany reserves the position until the evaluations are announced.
READ THE FOLLOWING BANNED SUBSTANCE LIST!!!
Each athlete is responsible to familiarize himself/herself with the rules of the official anti-doping site of the WNBF.
No athlete may take a prescription medication more frequently or in higher dosages than prescribed by his/her physician. Medications may never be used for bodybuilding or weight loss purposes. Also, no prescription may be used that has not been prescribed to the patient. From October 17, 2023 ALL prescription medication must be presented to the organizers as part of the WNBF Germany medical certificate, so that the WNBF can issue an exemption for therapeutic use in alignment with the the anti-doping rules.

WNBF Germany reserves the right to publish positive doping tests. Looking into further testing is paid by the athlete. The legal redress is excluded.

Annual membershipBecome a member
All German citizens or those who have a permit to live in Germany must hold a valid WNBF Germany e.V. membership
In order to become a member you need to be a German citizen or have a permit to live in Germany. If you are from a country that doesn't have a WNBF partner affiliate, you are more than welcomed to join the WNBF Germany and compete through us.
It is very important to us to promote the sport of natural bodybuilding as a whole. Therefore, we follow an "open door policy" meaning as an amateur you are welcomed to fulfill your passion as much as possible.
In order to compete internationally, you have to place Top 3 at one of our competitions. The permission to compete internationally is then valid for 24 months.
We have high standards for our reputation as Germany, so we only allow first place of each class to qualify for Worlds. However, we reserve the right to decide on site at the competition if athletes deserve an invite.
Every athlete is able to cross over into additional classes for an extra fee. We encourage you to do so if you are uncertain which class is the better fit.
Up to 14 days before registration deadline: 90% refund (payment and processing fee)
14 days before registration deadline: 50% refund
After registration deadline: no refund
*refund only with proof of sickness/injury*
*no refunds for pro athletes as the prize money is based on registrations*
Of course you can compete with us. However, we are an independent federation, ergo a WNBF membership must be active (WNBF Germany e.V. membership with German citizenship or permanent residence in Germany or membership with a WNBF affiliate if resident abroad).
Novice is someone who has never placed in the top 3 of a competition (of any federation). These are athletes who have little to no experience with competing. Mostly it is about 1-2 competition seasons.
ATTENTION: In the WNBF as a novice you are NOT allowed to cross over in the open class. You have to decide if you start novice or open.
Each class winner is allowed to compete in the overall of its category to win a WNBF pro card except Novice and Master class winners.
Cancellation must be done in written format (by email). Please remember to cancel your subscription payments (PayPal, Stripe,...) yourself, as we are not authorized to do so.
