Wheelchair Bodybuilding, Inc. (WCBB) was founded in May 2006 as a national tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization by Nick Scott. Its objective is to raise funds to expand and improve opportunities for wheelchair athletes and adaptive athletes.
WCBB’s primary focus is to promote, grow, and expand the sports of wheelchair bodybuilding and adaptive bodybuilding. WCBB collaborates and partners with the NPC (National Physique Committee) and IFBB Professional League (International Federation of Body Builders), which are the premier federations in the fitness industry.
The mission of Wheelchair Bodybuilding, Inc. is to provide an inclusive and supportive environment for children, adults, and veterans with disabilities to participate in activities that offer both physical and psychological therapeutic benefits.
Wheelchair Bodybuilding, Inc. aims to cultivate a “can do” attitude among its participants by empowering them with the confidence and self-reliance needed to confront their own life challenges and surmount obstacles that may have appeared insurmountable.
Anyone who has a physical disability can become a member of the WCBB. Inspired by the positive impact wheelchair bodybuilding had on the WCBB Chairman, Nick Scott’s own life, Nick is committed to supporting others in similar situations to discover their inner drive and achieve their personal goals.

If you plan on competing in the Wheelchair Division, yes, you must use and be in a wheelchair. You should use the wheelchair for 99% of your life; it’s about a lifestyle.
While some other sports allow a mix of individuals with varying disabilities to sit in a wheelchair for participation and competition, Wheelchair Bodybuilding follows different rules.
Our athletes lead their day-to-day lives in a wheelchair, using it at home, outside, while traveling, and in the gym. That’s why the rules of Wheelchair Bodybuilding are based around the lifestyle of a wheelchair user.
For the detailed rules of Wheelchair Bodybuilding, you can read them here.
While there are various disabled and wheelchair sports that feature professional athletes, Wheelchair Bodybuilding is unique in that athletes must earn their IFBB Pro Status.
Wheelchair Bodybuilding, Inc. is dedicated to equipping athletes with the resources they need to improve their quality of life and leverage the sport as a means to access further opportunities.
