Grand Sierra Resort, Grand Theater | NPC National Qualifier

The 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.

At the NPC Mother Lode you will feel like a freaking rock star. Start with the EPIC $15 million, 3,000 seat venue. The back stage is 1 acre, yes ACRE. It includes multiple green rooms, pump up room, live streaming of the show, showers, mirrors, microwave, and real weights! We give you FAT competitor bags loaded with the goods from our sponsors. You win CUSTOM hand made trophies and medals. The stage set includes a 30 foot wide LED screen and 20′ tall GOLD ELEPHANTS. We bring in the top Olympians like Oksana Grishina, Mark Anthony, Latorya Watts, Bojana Vasiljevic, and more. The whole event, everything; competitor meeting, check-ins, tanning, make-up, and the show take place under one roof at the Grand Sierra Resort. The resort also includes multiple restaurants, spa, outdoor driving range, blowing alley, gym, Vegas style pools, movie theater, and a night club. Speaking of night club, ALL of our competitors get FREE access to LEX Night Club after the show which is located 15 feet from the showroom. AND the entire resort is located 5 minutes from the Reno, Nevada airport where there is even a free shuttle. The event is live streamed for FREE and is photographed by top fitness photographer, Marcello Rostagni. We know how hard you worked to get on our stage, we want to make sure you have the time of your life! And early bird registration is just $109. You won’t get this kind of value anywhere else… well except maybe at one of our other Center Podium events!
