Grand Sierra Resort, Grand Theater | NPC National Qualifier

Judge’s Feedback


The UFC GYM RENO, NPC Mother Lode is a visual extravaganza! The show hearkens back to before the Golden Days of bodybuilding to a time when muscles could only be found at freak shows and on the inside of dirty red and white striped tents. With a production unlike any other, we have spared no expense to give you an experience that is worthy your hard work.

The opening act includes aerialists, gymnastics, light show, music, smoke, and Olympians; it WILL BLOW YOUR MIND! Ms. Olympia, Oksana Grishina, will bring you an original, mind-blowing performance as in THIS VIDEO when she performed at the 2018 NPC Mother Lode. The entire event is hosted by our ringmaster of ceremonies, Eric the Trainer!


Register onsite on Saturday at 11:00 AM at LEX Nightclub to compete and qualify for Arnold Classic Armwrestling.  Plus catch the celebrity Challenge Match at the NPC finals!USAA Reno Nevada Armwrestling
