NPC Mother Lode
Grand Sierra Resort, Grand Theater | NPC National Qualifier
The NPC Mother Lode has been rescheduled for May 24, 2020. For additional information, please click HERE.
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 of your hard work.
Start with the EPIC $15 million, 3,000 seat venue. Arnold Classic Champion Cedric McMillan will be performing to a live string quartet! There will be aerialists, circus acts, and an armwrestling challenge match. There will be dozens of fitness vendors and of course over 200 bodybuilding, bikini, fitness, and physique competitors. What every your fitness fetish, you will find it here! The stage set includes a 30 foot wide LED screen and 20′ tall GOLD ELEPHANTS. We bring in the top Olympians like Cedric McMillan, Mark Anthony, 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 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. 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.
