In order to compete in any Canadian Physique Alliance show it’s mandatory that you sign up for a membership to join the organization. Your membership is good for 1 calendar year and allows you to compete in as many shows within that year that you would like.

yes, you can compete in as many classes as you’d like in the show. This can be done in a number of ways as follows:

Competing in different classes

You can compete in 2 classes if you’d like. For men this might be men’s physique and men’s classic physique. For Women, this could be women’s bikini and women’s wellness.

Competing in different categories within the same class

The Canadian Physique Alliance offers a number of different classes specific to age and experience level and you are welcome to compete in as many as you’d like. Class for example are as follows: junior (Under 23 years old on show day), Master for women 35 plus, Masters for men 40 plus, Grand Masters for women 45 plus, Grand Masters for Men 50 plus, Super Grand masters for women 55 plus, Super grand master for men 60 plus. Should you not see an age class for the show you’d like to compete in you can send us an email to have it added.

Additionally, you can register for shows as a true novice (first time competitors only), novice (competed before however haven’t placed top 3 in any events), open (all athletes are welcome)

Yes, if you are competing within the same class aka.. men’s bodybuilding for example and you would like to do Masters & open, you’d only do your routine 1 time. The only exception is if you are doing both men’s bodybuilding and men’s classic physique you are welcome to do your routine for each class. However you will need to have a different song for each and a different routine that matches the poses for each class respectively.

At this point we are unsure if this will be possible however we will update you closer to the event.
