INDUSTRY NEWS: NPC Worldwide to include Wellness Division in 2020.
Jim Manion’s 2019 Pittsburgh Pro has made it a custom to release the latest news for the next competition season.
The big news for the NPC Worldwide is that they will be adding the Wellness division to the contest schedule.
As the NPC Worldwide is trying to gain momentum internationally, the Wellness division is not a new discipline as it has been a regular fixture with the IFBB in their amateur and IFBB Elite Pro competition schedule for a number of years.
Many fans already expressed their frustration about this division on forums that support the NPC and NPC Worldwide. The majority of fans would prefer to see more bodybuilding contests included at NPC/Pro League shows rather than add new divisions.
The announcement was made by NPC/Pro League President Jim Manion and grandson and new NPC/Pro League Vice-President Tyler Manion during the 2019 Pittsburgh Pro.
