Fitness was the focus at Country Club Tasmania on Sunday for the iCompete Natural State Championships.
More than 70 competitors took to the stage across about 25 different categories, which included modelling, swimsuit, bodybuilding, and angel.
Participants could enter more than one class depending on their body type.
Winners from the event will progress to the ICN National Championships to be held in Melbourne from October 12-14.
From there, they have the chance to take part the ICN World Titles on the Gold Coast, also in October.
ICN Tasmania president Stephanie McKay said the state championships consisted of a broad spectrum of criteria.
“There are divisions where competitors are not required to be as muscular and others like the bodybuilding divisions where they are,” she said.
“What they do on stage will depend on what division they are in.
“Obviously the modelling category requires a model walk, while the bodybuilders will do compulsory posing.”
Sunday was the culmination of a years worth of preparation for Hobart’s Claudia Choe, who was taking part in her first fitness competition.
The 23-year-old said she was inspired to enter the event after watching her partner compete last year.
“I think anyone with a passion for fitness knows they will compete at some stage,” she said.
“A lot of the time, all it takes a spark to ignite them.
“For me, that was watching my partner on stage.”
