Body Building

The Barbados Amateur Body Building and Fitness Federation's mission is to enrich the lives of Barbadians through the use of the sport. They have introduced new categories in the competitions such as Bikini Fitness and Men's Physique over the years as to assist in reviving the sport.  Another integral aspect of these competitions is to showcase the kind of body-building talent Barbados has to offer and in turn attract foreign exchange to the economy.
