In 1950, NABBA ran it's first Mr Universe competition, being won by Steve Reeves, who went on to make over 30 Hercules movies. High profile bodybuilders who have won the prestigious title of Mr Universe title include Reg Park, Bill Pearl and Arnold Schwarzenegger.


NABBA International was formed in 1984 and became host to the European & World Championships. This branch of NABBA is now supported by more than fifty countries worldwide.


In the UK, there are 10 elected representatives covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and they are members of the NABBA council.


Each area holds a qualifying event, which leads to the annual NABBA Britain Finals. This in turn becomes a qualifier for the European and Universe Championships.
