The NPC News is a magazine which cannot be purchased on magazine shelves. It is published for members of the NPC. It is a excellent magazine for those who are in the NPC, and for those who enjoy amateur bodybuilding, and learning about bodybuilders who soon will vie for Professional status. It's new section is also for the NPC Fitness, which is growing rapidly. The September / October issue of the NPC News (National Physique Committee) features an interesting interview with Mike Matarazzo. It also features articles on a number of bodybuilding contests.
