Everyone from beginners to seasoned competitors are welcome to attend. Please ensure you are following us on Social Media as we will post the date and times on our social media platforms.


  • I have competed before with other Federations/Shows, can I still compete at the GymBodyz Gala?

  • YES! We welcome everyone to compete with us. We are a standalone show and we have no affiliation to any other Federation or any other Physique show.


  • I need help with my stage presentation and posing, can GymBodyz recommend a coach to me?

  • GymBodyz will be running our own regular seminars/stage presentation workshops which will help all competitors with this aspect of competing. Please ensure you follow us on Instagram or Facebook as we will post details of our workshops here. Competitors competing with us are also free to work with their own stage presentation/posing coach.


  • I have tattoo’s, will I need to cover these up to compete?

  • No, you are not required to cover up your tattoo to compete, however, you should consider if your tattoo covers a large area of your body and may take away from your muscles and muscle definition on stage as the stage lights are extreme and very powerful. This will ultimately be a final decision that you make yourself.


  • Is a stage tan necessary?

  • YES! We cannot stress enough that all competitors ensure they get a tan before they compete. The stage lights are very strong and without a stage tan the lights will give your body a washed-out appearance and/or take away from your muscle definition. Our official tanning company is SHOW TAN UK.


  • Will I be able to purchase professional stage pictures of myself?

  • Yes! Our official photography is Mak Freeman.
