Hello, I am interested in getting into figure/fitness competitions, but lack any info. I am really confuzed between all the different corperations that hold the different competitions. Do all lead to a Pro card? Are there different types of "governing bodies" and if, which are more prestegious?

I'm bumping this because I would also like a run-down of how the competition circuit works. I'm not so interested in fitness, more figure and bb. Hope someone can help :)

The NPC (non-tested) leads to the IFBB. The INBF (All Natural) leads to the WNBF. It depends what route you want to go. Really, there are three main types of shows:
Untested shows like IFBB and NPC - anything goes
"Natural" shows like MuscleMania - some things are tested for like steroids. Lots of legal gear and prohormones are allowed.
All Natural shows like INBF and WNBF - no steroids, growth, thyroid products, prohormones, etc.
I would also like to know the main corporations and the most popular ones. I know the IFBB is the most popular non-natural and the WNBF seems to be one of the most popular natural shows.

Of the three major types of competitions, which are more "prestigius" within the fitness community. Also, what are the different types of recognition and monetary rewards within each type?
