TNT is committed to creating a positive experience for all, in a safe, all inclusive environment.


What makes TNT Muscle different? It's not just the amount of experience and professionalism TNT Muscle has collectively. Let's talk about the naturally occurring theme song from ACDC! THAT is the energy you will experience first hand at the event! No question TNT Muscle will bring it full on from Corey Ossum @poollifesociety as our exclusive, dynamic high energy emcee, attention to all the details, and integrating a family friendly environment with an edge that will leave those attending feeling exhilarated. We are honored to introduce that 2020 will also hold the Status Fitness Model Search event on the main stage between TNT's prejudging and finals.

"We are paying attention to every detail from medal and award design to a heavy hand in operations, creating efficient process and solutions for things to run methodically. No stone is being left unturned to achieve this. We have hand selected those to support the outcome we intend to achieve, it's taking a village to pull this off again this year and we are making our team as extraordinary as the last. If you attended 2019, you know we mean business on this aspect."

Setting up the competitors for success dominates how we execute the event and TNT Muscle will always put on a comprehensive posing seminar prior to the event. TNT Muscle wants to contribute to the competitors' preparation process, not just the event day. Watch for details on social media @tntmuscle.

TNT Muscle will always ensure no one is walking out empty handed. Exhibitor/sponsor samples, event t-shirts, swag bags, special awards, custom medals for top 5, custom overall trophies, overalls receive paid registration for a pro-qualifier of their choice and $100 loaded credit card for accommodations. Overall Figure, Bikini, Women's Physique, and Wellness; 1st place Female Bodybuilding and Fitness will be "crowned" with an edgy TNT rock'n roll stylized crown. Sponsored classes will receive additional prizing from the sponsor. Candid photo props are part of the day with a (fake) old school Thomas Inch 300 pound dumbbell that your 2 year old could lift, and we are working on a large stick(s) of dynamite with dynamic backdrops, stage sparklers/fog and more. We are also upping our game for 2020 with a more extensive FREE exhibitor area.

P.S. Yes there will be baked goods backstage again, exclusive to the competitors!


The Status Fitness Model Search will be held on the main stage in between prejudging and finals.

Muscle Metamorphosis Inc. is sponsoring an award at the TNT Muscle Showdown on June 27, 2020, based on one's transformation story and achievement. Everyone has a story on their journey to get on stage. This is NOT based on how one looks on stage, but strictly based on the greatness of achievement, the obstacles overcome. You can tell your own story or nominate someone who deserves the special recognition. Winner will present the most staggering metamorphosis, but not limited to physicality.

We are we looking for:

» Physical Change
» Mental Change
» Spiritual Change
» Lifestyle Change
» LIFE Change
» Health Change
» Some or all of the above

The winner of this award will not necessarily be the top physique on stage or have the most dramatic weight loss, but rather the one with the most transformational story behind getting on stage and the willingness to share. The submission doesn't have to be eloquently written, just tell us the good old fashioned truth. It can even be in point form!

It is free to enter! (with confirmed registration to the TNT Muscle Showdown)
Submission deadline is June 1, 2020. For more information or to submit your story, click below!
