officating

As in all athletic competitions, the integrity of the judges and criteria is paramount. Therefore, at all Fitness Universe Tour competitions, the preceding reputation of each show regardless of the promoter must be implacable. As well, each and every judge must be a professional and without doubt among the competitors. They must be experienced and respected in their discipline of professional and treat their judging responsibilities in a serious manner. Additionally, judges cannot be personally familiar or in anyway associated with any of the competitors either by family relations or as a coach, trainer, nutritionist, stylist, choreographer and/or training facility management. Their presence on a judging panel should not cause a sense of impropriety and/or contrued as a potential interference in being an objective, fair and impartial judge. At Beginner and Regional shows, one panel of judges may officiate the Fitness, Ms. Bikini and Model events. Another set of judges may officiate the Figure and Musclemania events. Fitness, Ms. Bikini and Model competitions are not bodybuilding events and, therefore, no bodybuilders, trainers or other muscle coaches should be empaneled as judges.
