Today the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. (World Fitness Federation, World Body Building Federation)  International unites 135 Country – Members and organizes nearly 60 anual Am and Pro International Events World Wide. Looking from the juridic point of view the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International is no doubt the Real World Bodybuilding Leader.

Crowning it‘s 50 years of  International Bodybuilding activities, the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  works on the Unique Global International Bodybuilding Project -  the „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ («Энциклопедиявсемирногокультуризма»)

The Head of the Encyclopedia working group is the President W.F.F. – W.B.B.F.  International DSc. EDMUNDAS DAUBARAS.

Until now nobody even tried to work on such a huge International Project. To be frank, only few people can do it. There were attempts to name some previous works as „Encyclopedia“ too, but that were not Encyclopedias of Bodybuilding Sport in real (for example, as Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s „Encyclopedia“ was written about himself in person mostly). In real every Encyclopedia covers much wider things.

Our „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“  is based on the fivety years collected Historic Archives of the W.F.F. – W.B.B.F. International and also on the Archivic Documents presented to us by the Owner and the President of W.A.B.B.A. (World Amateur Body Building Association) SERGE NUBRET (France),  the Heads of the UK Public Club N.A.B.B.A. (National Amateur Body Building Association) OSCAR HEIDENSTAM (England) and IVAN DUNBAR (Ireland), the Owners and Heads of the I.F.B.B. (International Federation of Body Builders)  Commercial Company  BEN WEIDER (Canada), PAUL CHUA (Singapore), ALEX BAUER (Austria), JOSE PARDO HIDALGO (Spain).

Starting with EUGENY SANDOW our „Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding“ covers the period of nearly 120 years time. It presents over 9000 known International Bodybuildings Sport Personalities who were very important for the World Bodybuilding Sport during the period of the last Century. All these 9000 Bodybuilding Persons are representing all historically known traditional International Bodybuilding Federations. Comparing with the Bodybuilding Encyclopedia made by USA Bodybuilding Organizers in Internet, our „World Bodybuilding  Encyclopedia“ covers 90% wider information than the one of the USA.

All Athletes of these Federations of the last 120 years, who took high places at the Official Competitions as the World and Continent Am and Pro Championships, are in our Encyclopedia. All known International Officials and Organizers are also in our Encyclopedia as well.

Our „Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding“ will be published in various popular languages.



We would like to underline that  the 2017 year was an extraordinary year for the World‘s bodybuilding. In 2013 the International Sport Society was celebrating 50-th anniversaryof the World‘s Oldest Traditional Bodybuilding Contest  „Amber Prix International“ (международный турнир „Янтарныйприз», 1968-2020). 

In 2018 the International Sport Society was celebrating the 120-th anniversary of the first bodybuilding contest ever (held in 1898 in England and Russia). Also in 1898 in England the first Bodybuilding „Health and Strenght“  Magazine was started to issue and it is issued until now by ROY EDWARDS.

In 2017 the International Sport Society was celebrating the 90-th anniversary of female  fitness. It is connected with BRONE‘s DUBAR  regular trainings and participation in New York City in 1927-1940. We are glad that the Americans started collecting additional historic  information about BRONE DUBAR for the coming „Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding“. BRONE DUBAR with her family emigrated from Lithuania to the USA right before the First World War.
