Real Fit Showcase Rules and Regulations


Real Fit Expo wants to know how you stay above the fray to maintain your fitness levels. We want to see what real fitness looks like on you! We look at true fitness as an “inside job”. Hard work and discipline from the inside manifests itself on the outside with a healthy glow.  As such, our rules and regulations for the competition are determined as follows and reflect a balanced alignment with our judging panel. Athletes agree through registration that all forms of stimulant, steroids, either "natural" or synthetic are strictly prohibited.


Our judging panel parallels the same variety we hope to see in our competitors, thereby giving everyone the opportunity to compete without worrying about "fitness discrimination" from one type of fitness dedication to another. From yoga or transformation, to body-building or flexibility, our judging panel represents every type of competitor! 


Judges will be looking not only at your overall physical appearance and stage presence, but they also want to see your personality shine through on your poses, walk, or skill set, depending on the category in which you're competing. “Own” your walk and poses! Got swag? Bring it! Do you have extreme flexibility? Can you do a standing back flip? Show us! As a competitor, you'll choose the category that best suits YOU!



Muscle and Symmetry:

The Muscle and Symmetry athlete takes into consideration the necessary process required to optimize short-term extreme muscle definition. This athlete understands that bulking and cutting, counting macros and greatly reducing body fat is not sustainable, yet still holds great value in regards to the discipline and motivation required to prepare the body for extreme temporary symmetry, striations and muscular definition. This athlete will provide a simple 60-second statement of how they actively inspire others to achieve their fitness goals. Athlete will also complete one round of quarter turns to display symmetry and one round of poses for muscularity as follows:
