NPC National Qualifier Competition in Jacksonville, FL. July 27

JACKSONVILLE, FL (July 9, 2019) – The Dexter Jackson Classic, brought to you by Mr. Olympia, Dexter Jackson is gearing up for its 15th year and poised to be bigger than ever. The event will both entertain and motivate as hard-working amateur athletes as young as 16 and as old as 75 will show the audience what a few months of dedication to health and fitness can do to transform any physique!

While the show features competitions among the well-known “mass monsters” of bodybuilding, it also features a total of seven divisions showcasing a variety of body types including bikini, figure, men’s physique, classic physique, women’s physique, and fitness. In addition to the local stars on stage, spectators will get the chance to visit with fitness vendors who will share their latest products. The products can help anyone achieve their health and fitness goals from simply dropping a pant size to become a star on the bodybuilding stage.

Of course, Mr. Olympia, Dexter Jackson, will also be there throughout the shows to grab a selfie or impart a bit of the wisdom that helped him stay at the top of his class at the Mr. Olympia at 50 years old. “Nothing makes me happier than the opportunity to inspire the next generation of athletes.”, says Dexter Jackson, “They say I motivate them but really the last 15 years of hosting this event has kept me driven, knowing how many people look to me for motivation”.

The Dexter Jackson Classic is produced in partnership with Center Podium Productions. Known for producing major, first-class bodybuilding events on the west coast including the IFBB Pro League Legion Sports Fest & Expo, NPC West Coast Classic, Tahoe Show, NPC Mother Lode, NPC New Mexico State Open, and the IFBB Pro League International Russia Championship, Center Podium brings a elite level of production and organization to the world of bodybuilding.

“Last year was my first time officially working with Center Podium. They did an amazing job taking care of our competitors and provided an incredible experience for everyone. It was such a success that we already added a second Dexter Jackson Classic in Chattanooga Tennessee for this September 21st!” said Dexter Jackson, 2008 Mr. Olympia and founder of the Dexter Jackson Classic. “If you’re not sure if you’re ready to hit the stage, just remember ‘Ain’t nuthin to it, but to do it.”

“We are pleased to be recognized by Dexter as the nation’s top NPC show producers and excited to continue growing in this in Dexter’s hometown of Jacksonville for years to come,” said Chris Minnes, founder of Center Podium Productions.
