Our mission at the Australasian National Bodybuilding Federation (ANB) is to give athletes a forum where they can compete with the utmost professionalism. We seek raise a standard in bodybuilding, fitness and modelling and promote health and fitness within Australian and global communities. We aim to give our valued athletes unlimited opportunities to compete throughout Australia and exposure to sponsorship and media opportunities where possible.
History – Australasian National Bodybuilding (ANB)
Robert Powell formed the Australasian Natural Bodybuilding Federation (ANB) in 1983. Robert had a passion for all sports, especially those that required strength and resistance training. In those days, Robert owned supplement stores in Sydney working with distributor Kevin Reilly, who is today ANB Vice President.
More than two-and-a-half decades later with numerous world and Australian Champions, we are a firmly-structured national organisation. We have behind us hundreds of administrative members and literally tens of thousands of members. ANB shows continue to sell out and with each competition, the numbers of competitors continue to grow.
We abide by a firm and respected anti-drug policy by ASADA. With their support, we will continue to support natural athletes as much as possible, striving to give them a fair and even playing field on stage.
ANB promoters and state representatives continue to hold quality competitions throughout Australia in every state.
We are also very proud to announce that Ultimate Fitness Events (UFE) will now be our international affiliate, with partnered shows being co-sanctioned by ANB. Excitingly, competitors in Australia may now qualify for UFE Elite and PRO status through their events. UFE Professional and Elite Division competitors will be invited to compete at the ANB UFE World Titles held each year.
