The NPC Twin Cities Open and Iron Alliance Gym are proud to bring you an NPC Minnesota seminar and workshop hosted by NPC and IFBB Pro League Vice President, Tyler Manion, and IFBB Pro League Judge and Bikini Olympian, Étila Santiago.

This is an amazing opportunity to meet and learn from leaders of our organization, our local pros and our local judges. The seminar will go over the judging criteria and posing for each division as well as provide you with some posing practice and judges critiques on a mock stage. There will also be time for a Q&A, giveaways and more!

Date: Saturday March 30th, 2024

Time: Doors open at 9:30am 

Location: Iron Alliance Gym
