The World Bodybuilding and Figure Championship was founded by Carlos Jordan in 1988. Carlos Jordan began as a personal trainer in 1998 with Atlanta's Own, I.F.B.B. Mr. Olympia winner, Lee Haney at Animal Kingdom for 2 years. He later joined Fitness Today where he stayed for 3 years and finally found a home at Planet Fitness (formally Gold's Gym) on Buford Highway where he grew into near legendary status for 16 years. In mid 2000 he began construction of his very own personal training studio and in February 2001 he opened Ultimate Bodies by Carlos.
Carlos Jordan entered into a local bodybuilding competition that lead him to place 5th. After the show he was frustrated because he and others felt he should have placed higher if not first overall. He felt that with all the hard work and long hours in the gym, sacrificing his favorite meals to stay on a strict diet that would allow him to lean out and build muscle, hours of cardio sessions, etc. Not only physical but mental discipline. His failure to place top in his division was based on the judges bias and there were no guidelines to go by. He created the 1st annual NOPI nationals World Body Building and Figure Championship with both amateur and professional competitors including Novice, Master, Super Grand Master, and Open Short and Tall figure categories.
His first show as a promoter was held out doors as part of the NOPI Nationals, a motor club enthusiast event for 2 years. His 3rd event was held at the auditorium at Grady High School. Each year his show grew with more contestants and began attracting more attention from the local community. It has now turned into a once a year Main Event held at the Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia
