Night of Champions – NPC National Qualifier
The Night of Champions Bodybuilding, Fitness, and Figure Championships held its first show in the fall of 2009. Since then, it’s become a competitor and spectator favorite with sold out crowds cheering on some of the Northwest’s finest physiques as they compete for the coveted overall award. This National qualifying event gives competitors the opportunity to earn a spot on the national stage, where they can contend for IFBB Professional level status. In 2014 strength boundaries were broken with the addition of the “Squat Like an Animal” Challenge, inviting the region’s strongest lifters to battle it out in a squat rep off challenge at 500 pounds in front of a roaring audience.
SPOKANE CONVENTION CENTER Tickets are available online at Tickets West or at any Tickets West Outlet starting September 1st.
