What is TaMaarta?

Healthy. Competition

TaMaarta is dedicated to bringing health, function, and accessibility to the world of competitive fitness. The fitness community shouldn’t be about celebrating those who look fit, it should praise those who are. Muscles are for movement, not for show. Join TaMaarta to move competitive fitness in the right direction, and show the world that it’s time to do fitness the natural way.


TaMaarta Principles


Your body is built to move. TaMaarta rewards building functional muscle by including fitness challenges based on High Intensity Interval Training.


Every competitor needs a support system. You can’t take them on stage with you, but with TaMaarta ‘s Community Engagement initiatives they can come along for the rest of the ride.


TaMaarta promotes precision. The skill to train, nourish, and perform precisely without unnatural supplements. That's what it really takes. That's Healthy Competition.


TaMaarta brings competitive fitness to the digital world the right way. Sign up, find others, and get certified to host and officiate meets, all online.


Fitness is for everyone. By shifting the focus away from pure aesthetics and toward muscle function, TaMaarta is opening the gates of what it means to compete.

A Drug Free Environment

TaMaarta proudly promotes drug-free, functional fitness. By dialing down the pressure to build additional muscle to appear "stage ready" and limiting prizes and payouts to certified Drug Free competitors, we fight back against the dangerous effects of performance enhancers and damaging chemical supplements.

We remain dedicated to changing the harmful practices and drug-fueled image of the competitive fitness industry by accommodating competitors transitioning into the natural lifestyle. Athletes can join TaMaarta as Natural competitors, those who are not taking any of the organization's list of banned substances and have been free of these for the past 12 months, or as Committed competitors, those who do not meet the criteria of Natural competitors, but have pledged to compete without use of these substances for the next 12 months. After a 12 month period has passed, Committed competitors will earn the privilege of competing as Natural TaMaarta Members.

A Level Playing Field

Fitness isn't about looking good, it's about being functional. The elements of High Intensity Interval Training that set TaMaarta apart from traditional fitness competitions serve to level the playing field. At TaMaarta events, appearing aesthetically fit serves as only a portion of an athlete's overall score. Pairing stage presentation with functional fitness challenges ensures that competitors steer clear of the dangerous behaviors that often come in the days directly pre competition.

No more starving before meets, no more tough-to-counteract genetic aesthetic advantages, and no more limited participant pool. The TaMaarta 10 Challenge phase takes TaMaarta to an unprecedented level of accessibility where function counts, training helps, and precise & proper nutrition is essential.

A Natural Community

It can be easy to give in to the short-term benefits of harmful substances when it seems like everyone in an organization is using them. At TaMaarta, we combat chemical supplement abuse at every level, beginning with our community.

Join a dedicated community of athletes to share, discuss, and develop the best practices for building muscle mass, definition, and function without hurting your body's long term function and aesthetic. Experience competitive fitness like you've never seen it before: community-inspired, drug free, and encouraging at every turn, with TaMaarta.

Healthy. Competition.
