Welcome to Lee Banks Natural Championships (LBNC)
We are proud to introduce the NEW 2021 Lee Banks Natural Championships (LBNC) in our NEW Venue and Host Hotel, Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL!
We are now an ALL-INCLUSIVE 100% Drug-Tested NATURAL Physique Competition with NO sanctioning organization.
LBNC is independently produced and presented by Lee Banks Fitness. It is the vision of Lee Banks Fitness CEO, Natural IFBB Pro & Olympian Lee Banks, who has dedicated his career to a healthy lifestyle and natural bodybuilding.
For the first time there is an event where everyone is welcomed. We invite natural athletes to come together in demonstration of the belief that HARD WORK, DEDICATION, DETERMINATION, and PERSEVERANCE are what is rewarded in "The WORLD of NATURAL BODYBUILDING!" No enhancements, just you and your commitment to getting it done.
Every natural competitor, regardless of affiliation, is strongly encouraged to show up and show out. LBNC is a “showcase of the art of bodybuilding” for all natural athletes; first time, amateur, and pro. Let's come together!
We're excited to be your host for this extraordinary event. If you have questions or concerns don’t hesitate to reach out to us. . . we’re with you every step of the way!
Now is the time . . . This is OUR Year. REGISTER NOW!
