WHAT ARE THE BACKSTAGE PUMP UP RULES?

ARE TRAINERS ALLOWED BACKSTAGE?
Your trainer may purchase a Backstage pass.
They are $100 but the person must be a current member of the NPC (yes, even IFBB Pros) and must purchase a ticket to the show (so they can sit and watch afterwards).
They can be purchased from the Box Office starting Saturday Morning.
CAN I HAVE MY OWN PHOTOGRAPHER/VIDEO TEAM WITH ME?
Unfortunately you cannot have a personal team backstage with you.
Professional stage photos will be taken by JM Manion of NPC News Online and will be available for purchase through him. Be sure to get his photo order form during check-ins. More information can be found on our PROFESSIONAL SERVICES PAGE
CAN I BRING MY HAIR/MAKE-UP PERSON WITH ME BACKSTAGE?
No, you cannot have a glam/make-up/hair person with you in the dressing rooms. We will have Protan’s hair and make-up team on site if you need their services.
If a friend is helping you would have to get ready in your hotel room prior then come down to the show.
I PURCHASED MY TICKETS ONLINE, DO I HAVE TO WAIT IN LINE?
