What is a TaMaarta Physique Competition?

What is a TaMaarta Physique Competition?
We get this question often.

Is it a bodybuilding show? No.
Of course there are some similarities in stage presentation. But bodybuilding’s innate focus is on building big muscles and getting shredded (super lean). That’s not the goal of TaMaarta which has a focus of what’s called Physique Sculpting.

Physique Sculpting- The art of transforming the body and mind through proper balanced nutrition, wholistic functional body exertion, drug free supplementation, and a positive, deliberate mental focus.

So is it more like CrossFit? No.
Again, there are some similarities. But where CrossFit incorporates many Olympic styled lifts. TaMaarta focuses more on core, bodyweight, basic lifts and reps against time to build endurance and strength.

So What is a TaMaarta Physique Competition?
The answer is simple. It’s a test of strength/endurance combined with a physique showcase/presentation on a stage. A TaMaarta Athlete doesn’t just look strong, they are strong.

The competition has two Phases.
Phase One is a ten exercise circuit.
Phase Two is a stage presentation.
