ARE YOU AN AMATEUR OR A PRO?
We are often asked the definition of an "amateur."
Once a fitness athlete competes as an amateur in a fitness competition, they have declared themselves an amateur. If they then compete in another fitness contest and accept cash or cash prizes (i.e. car, vacations trips, etc.) they are no longer considered an amateur.
And, I'm still being asked for clarification
Status as an amateur or a pro in the IFSB in YOUR decision. If you also compete as a FITNESS competitor in another organization, you need to refer to their rules, however, our definition is taken practically verbatim from one of the largest amateur organizations holding fitness events so that we can hopefully make this as easy as possible for the most competitors.

There are many reasons why a person enters the realm of bodybuilding. Some may just train to body build to become healthy, firm and fit while some may enter bodybuilding to claim a title or to reach their bodybuilding dreams. If a person participates in a bodybuilding activity, it may even be a mission of both: to fulfill a dream and live a healthy lifestyle and be in good shape.
A person striving to participate in a bodybuilding competition has to be extremely disciplined at all cost. This means that from the mental and emotional stability of a person down to what he eats everyday has to be diligently stabilized and followed.
Since preparation is a must for a bodybuilder contender, it is important for that person to believe in himself that he can watch what he eats and maintain what he does. In line with this, as a bodybuilder contender, the thought of getting the mind conditioned to what is going to happen (be it good or bad) during the competition should also be expected. The bodybuilder contestant who is confident always about what shape he shows on stage is going to count as one of his major assets. So if you're nervous about the competition, be sure you train yourself to stay calm and collected because the people who are going to show up will see this in you.
When it comes to disciplining yourself, you'll be surprise to realize that it's much difficult to maintain a mind over body concept. Because your mind controls everything what you do, your body follows instinctively. But what if your mind thinks the reverse of how natural bodybuilding training should be? Since your body responds to every thought your mind creates, you'll find out that it's important to pay attention to what you also think because it manifests to something you could possibly do later on.
Do whatever you can to maintain healthy bodybuilding training and learn to teach your mind to think healthy as well.
