About  MuscleWare

In the sport of bodybuilding, there is only one organization that is home to the very best athletes on earth - the IFBB Pro League.

Tens of thousands of Athletes have spent lifetimes building their physiques dreaming of becoming IFBB Pros. For the elite who have made it into the IFBB Pro League ranks, only a handful of athletes have ever achieved the title of Olympia Champion - permanently etching their names in the history of human muscular achievement.


Every champion had humble beginnings, and it all starts at regional amateur competitions. The Amateur ranks of the IFBB Pro league in the United States are governed by the National Physique Committee (NPC), and its Canadian counterpart is the Canadian Physique Alliance (CPA). Promoters for the amateur events are often notable IFBB Pro athletes or long time contributors of the sport, and it is an honor to be awarded a sanctioned contest.

Reality Hits...

Once the initial excitement of having a show bestowed upon them dissipates, promoters find themselves in the intimidating and unfamiliar position of figuring out how to plan a large event.

After securing a date, putting a sizable deposit on a venue, contracting multiple vendors and hiring a graphic designer to begin working on the basic marketing materials, the promoter is expected to have the technology in place to facilitate a modern experience for everyone involved.

Finding a high school student to put up a basic website is one thing, but how do athletes register for the event? How will people buy tickets for the show? How will the payments be processed and confirmed? Where will the data be stored and organized, and how will all of the required documents and reports be generated?


The answer is  MuscleWare

MUSCLEWARE is a complete 'turn-key' cloud software solution for promoters of bodybuilding events. It was created, and continues to be developed, in direct consultation with the top CPA executives, ensuring promoters are providing exactly what is expected from them by the organization.


How It Works

It all starts with a website... Promoters can either use their own website, or for a small fee MUSCLEWARE will create a modern website for the event, designed to be displayed properly on all sized screens - computers, tablets and mobile phones.

On the website, in addition to all of the pertinent information about the show / venue / host hotel, online forms are inserted for athlete registrations, ticket sales and general inquiries.




  Athlete Registration

The Athlete Registration module is the core of MUSCLEWARE. Athletes enter their personal details and select their competition class(es) via online web forms. MUSCLEWARE calculates payment totals and takes care of the capture and storage of data, as well as facilitates online payments via PayPal. The promoter is notified by PayPal whenever a payment is made. Athletes receive PayPal transaction confirmations and a MUSCLEWARE registration receipt.

Once online registration closes, Athlete Registration sheets are automatically created (one sheet per confirmed and paid class registration - just as the CPA requires). Athlete numbers are pre-assigned (respecting crossovers), and a single PDF file containing all registration sheets is generated for printing. The Promoter simply prints the PDF and takes the hard copies to the on-site registration. The Promoter is also supplied with a "blank" registration sheet, so copies may be printed for athletes who register in person.


  Contact Form

The Contact Form module is a free add-on, where MUSCLEWARE captures and stores the website contact form data in the same database as the Athlete Registrations and Ticket Sales information - and of course sends an email to the promoter as well.


  Ticket Sales

Often, and especially at regional level shows, the venues are not equipped with online box office systems. In these cases, the MUSCLEWARE Ticket Sales module can be used to facilitate online ticket sales.

The promoter specifies the type(s) of ticket(s) (i.e. Prejudging, Finals, All Day Passes, VIP, Backstage, etc.) they wish to offer, price(s) for each type (including whether or not to charge sales taxes), as well as any limit on number of tickets sold (if necessary). If supplied, MUSCLEWARE can also calculate the maximum number of any combination of tickets sold to account for venue capacity / fire regulations.

In the same manner as Athlete Registrations, the promoter is notified by PayPal when payment(s) are made. The purchaser receives PayPal transaction confirmations and a MUSCLEWARE purchase receipt. Once online sales are closed, a single spreadsheet is automatically created for the promoter of all of the confirmed and paid Ticket holder data.

This spreadsheet can be used by event staff to ensure they dispense the correct type and number of tickets / stamps / wristbands to the entitled ticket holders.



All Athlete and Ticket purchaser data is stored in the MUSCLEWARE database. Payments are processed via PayPal directly into the promoter's PayPal account, making the funds available to the promoter immediately. MUSCLEWARE confirms the status of all payments so each and every transaction is verified, and confirmation emails are automatically sent out to the athletes / ticket holders upon successful purchase. If payment status changes (for example, the promoter issues a refund), MUSCLEWARE is notified directly by PayPal, and the transaction status is updated in MUSCLEWARE.



The promoter has access to the MUSCLEWARE Promoter Portal 24/7, where they can analyze the current athlete registration data, ticket sales data, and produce any reports they wish.

THE  MuscleWare  PROMOTER PORTAL




Once online registration and ticket sales are closed, MUSCLEWARE generates all the reports the promoter is required to produce, including athlete registration sheets, competitor lists and CPA number verification reports.

For extra brownie points (high protein of course), a full digital report for the statistician is also created, containing athlete information, class totals, crossover data and more!

MUSCLEWARE delivers a modern, professional experience to athletes, spectators, promoters and officials.
