Wheelchair Bodybuilding, Inc. (WCBB) was founded in May 2006 as a non-profit tax-exempted 501(c)(3) organization by Nick Scott dedicated to raising funds to expand and improve opportunities for wheelchair athletes and adaptive athletes.
WCBB focuses on promoting, growing, and expanding the sport of wheelchair bodybuilding and adaptive bodybuilding through its association with the NPC (National Physique Committee) and IFBB Professional League (International Federation of Body Builders).
With Nick’s vision and the support of many people in the professional bodybuilding community, the first IFBB Professional League Pro Wheelchair Championships took place at the 2011 IFBB Houston Pro Show on October 13, 2011. There are now thousands of wheelchair bodybuilders who are working hard to meet their own goals and set an example for others of what can be achieved with persistence and a positive mindset.
Investing over 10 years of Nick Scott’s life, on Saturday, March 5th, 2016 the IFBB Professional League Pro Wheelchair Division was added to the 2016 Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio – USA. After 13 years, on Saturday, September 15, 2018, the IFBB Professional League Pro Wheelchair Division was added to the 2018 Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada – USA.
The ultimate dream for any athlete in the fitness industry is to compete on those two stages, and Nick made this dream come true for as many athletes.
The WCBB hopes to attract even more wheelchair and adaptive athletes to the sport of bodybuilding. Provide the training insights and motivational support necessary to help as many wheelchair and adaptive warriors as possible to compete.
