IBFF President & Founder
Duško is proud to be the Founder and President of INTERNATIONAL BODYBUILDING & FITNESS FEDERATION (IBFF). Trough the support of Slovenian Bodybuilding & Fitness Association and encouragement of other like minded individuals also great athletes from France, Italy, Serbia and Croatia. He began an organization committed to support bodybuilding and fitness worldwide.
Duško has been involved in competitive bodybuilding for 35 years as a competitor, coach, judge and organizer of events, winning various international and world titles in different federations. He has over 35 years of experience in fitness industry us a bodybuilding and personal trainer in his California Gym in Koper.
Duško has appeared in numerous publications worldwide and TV programs on Slovenian national television, Serbian, Montenegro's, Argentine and Croatian televisions. Being athlete him selves, he knows what it takes to compete and will host events that put the competitors first.
There are a lot of federations out there, IBFF, NABBA, NAC, WBFF, IFBB, WABBA, IBFA….....etc. Each federation will have their own set of rules regarding what they require of their athletes. You may find you like competing at contests affiliated with a particular federation more than another. Some federations’ contests are more prevalent in particular areas of the country or the world.
IBFF federation is officially registrated federation and it exists from the year of 2009.
It only consists of competitors and ex competitors and that is why its main and first obligation is to give competitors back their respect. Federations are created for competitors - not the other way around and that is what most of international associations has forgot.
In IBFF we don't have any sport related companies to support us or secret agenda that would bring us money. We are volunteers and fans of bodybuilding sport and we do our work for free. Fair judging is one of the main and most important goals and we can't say that about many other organizations.
More than 50 countries from all continents are members of IBFF and as long as you respect the rules and statute of IBFF that applies to everyone with no exceptions - membership is for free.
To organize competitions with fair judging and with all the respect that competitors deserve is basic rule of IBFF. Our athletes can compete in all federations and it never happens that they would be limited or punished for doing that. That is the basic right of every competitor.
The path to becoming a Pro is also a little different from federation to federation. If you have aspirations of becoming a pro, your goal would be to qualify and/or compete in shows that are awarding pro cards. What contests do you have to win to get a IBFF pro card?
In order to be an IBFF pro you need to earn a IBFF pro card, and in order to do that you need to win the IBFF international contests :
IBFF European Championship or IBFF Universe Championship or IBFF World Championship ( winners of categories : BB small, BB midle, BB tall, BB over 40 and winner of over all athletic-fitness ).
So when you become a professional Bodybuilder which means you have received a pro card from the IBFF then you have earned the right to compete in IBFF PRO competitions.
The IBFF is here to promote a healthy lifestyle and does not condone the use of performing enhancing substances.
