IFBB: Best in the World

Sometimes being the biggest doesn't make you the best. The IFBB is one of those rare organizations that is not only the biggest, but is the best in terms of the quality of athletes. That's not saying the others don't have great athletes, but it's something about the IFBB that's second to none when it comes to attracting fitness stars. The IFBB has divisions for practically every female that wants to compete, in terms of their muscularity and what they want to accomplish: women's bodybuilding (the one that started it all), women's physique (a throwback to the older days of figure, but with a posing routine and barefoot), fitness (the athletic division), figure (more model-esque) and bikini (toned, athletic, beach look and personality). There's something for everyone, and it represent the top in the sports, which culminates at the Super Bowl of Bodybuilding, the Olympia, every September in Las Vegas.

Runner-up: NPC

Others nominated include WBFF, Fitness Universe, and IFPA.
