Back to IFBB Disciplines

The wellness fitness division is intended for women who prefer a muscular physique without muscle separation and who wish to be athletic and aesthetically pleasing, with a bigger body mass than in bikini fitness. 

Wellness fitness is placed somewhere between bikini fitness and women’s physique.

The assessment of the physique, judging criteria and rounds are the same as women’s bikini fitness. Competitors perform quarter-turns in all rounds plus an individual "I-walking" presentation in the finals. 

Vertical proportions - legs to upper-body length - is one of the key factors. Horizontal proportions of hips and waist to shoulder width may favour women with slightly bigger hips, thighs and buttocks. 

There are four wellness fitness categories: up to 158 centimetres, up to 163cm; up to 168cm and over 168cm.
