Mr America Fitness Festival


joins the

Mr. America Fitness Festival Weekend

Mr. America Promotions LLC is delighted and proud to announce that the ADFPF (American Drug Free Powerlifting Federation) is thrilled to participate in the 2017 Mr. America Fitness Festival Weekend, October 6-8, at the Baltimore Convention Center. The ADFPF will be part of the Mr. America Expo which will feature the NGA Mr. America competition along with numerous other NGA & NSL Bodybuilding and Fitness events.

“The ADFPF is the leading drug free federation in the world of Powerlifting and Strongman competitions and will be presenting the ADFPF Mr. America Power Showcase at the October event. In keeping with the theme and objective of the Mr. America Fitness Festival Weekend, we are ecstatic that the ADFPF has merged with our event” states Team Mr. America VP Brent M. Williams.

Mike Stagg, President of the ADFPF elucidates “The ADFPF is strong in its core values. We do not condone drug use and work aggressively to prevent it in our organization. We also have consistent judging that is conducted per the rulebook. Nothing is more frustrating to a lifter than inconsistent judging. Even if it works in your favor one meet, it will work against you in another meet. We work to ensure that the ADFPF, as well as all ADFPF competitions, are governed with integrity and by the highest standards of meet structure, officiating and organizational administration.”

President Stagg continues “I firmly believe that the drug use that seems to be so widely accepted in today’s society along with the inconsistency with respect to rules are two of the main factors that prevent our sport from being accepted to the mainstream public.”

The ADFPF is a non-profit organization formed to provide all amateur athletes with legitimate drug-tested Powerlifting, Strongman/women, and Highland Games competitions through local, state, regional and national championships, while encouraging the growth of international amateur drug-free competition.

Nemo Y. Yaccarino, Team Mr. America COO proclaims “Mr. America Promotions LLC happily welcomes the ADFPF and is elated that they have joined the NGA, the NSL and the UFE in what is becoming the largest Natural event in the history of the sport.”
