The event is not only for Singapore and South East Asia’s top physique athletes but also for anyone who has an interest in overall health and wellness. There will be sports & fitness leaders from around Singapore at the event helping to create a close bond within the fitness community here and to showcase their sports and activities. There will also be fun activities for the audience to take part in and as well as charitable aspects.

Juliette Bergmann, an ex Miss Olympia and President of the IFBB Dutch Federation (NBBF) will be flying in to conduct posing and judging seminars as well as heading the judging panel for the competition.

There will also be local well known athletes in attendance such as IFBB Pro Joan Liew and Augustine Lee, a multiple Asian Champion.

“The name of the show was chosen not only because of the obvious physical strength that will be demonstrated by the participants, but also because the word ‘strength’ has a much wider reach and can apply to many other more holistic endeavours such as Yoga, CrossFit, Pilates, Pole Dancing, Powerlifting and even Meditation that will be showcased at the event”, said Alex Michael Betts, President of The SFBF (Singapore Federation of Bodybuilding & Fitness).
