Better Late Than Never! Giuseppina Savaglio’s Incredible Transformation! “Growing up Italian, the more food you could eat the healthier you were thought of being. That said, I grew up my entire life as an overweight child and teen. At 17 and 196lbs I started working out with LaMark Robinson and haven’t stopped since. My workouts were always on point; I was an avid runner and even completed 2 Ultra Marathons, but my weight never budged. I thought to myself that I was in the best shape I could be based on my athletic abilities and that was just how I was. When LaMark approached me with training and competing in the IPL I thought to myself ‘I’m never going to get small enough.’ I was up for the challenge though. I needed a new goal to push myself harder in the gym and outside. Within 6 months I have dropped almost 40lbs. The most weight I have dropped in 17 years. My workouts haven’t changed, but my diet has. I learned proper nutrition for my goals, what works and what doesn’t work for my body type, and it has made such an incredible difference. When I look back I wish I would have learned sooner. Better late than never, I guess. I am super excited to see where I can go from here.”

The IPL offers 7 Pro Qualifying divisions of competition including Bodybuilding, Figure, Athletic, Sports Model, Fitness Angels, Bikini, & Evening Gown.
The IPL also offers “Exhibition Divisions” which do not have a Professional level and are only offered at some shows. These divisions include Women’s Bikini Mammas, Men’s Beach Body, Inspiration Dedication, & Kids Fitness.
The IPL maintains the “sport feel” of Physique Competition and we will never veer away from that. We are a sport league and will maintain the integrity and spirit of competitive sporting events. The IPL is not a “Pageant-style” federation. We are also not a bare-bones, nitty gritty operation either. That being said, we do like a little flash and flair and as part of a media company we are looking to create and promote ambassadors who represent true health and fitness.
The IPL is wholly owned by MiBoLife Publishing, the leader in publicity, news, and media for drug-tested Physique Competition. IPL athletes, contests, and events are featured in the following magazine publications: NATURALMAG, NATURAL BIKINI, NATURAL GAINZ & VIGOROUS. Four magazines. Tons of potential cover models and countless articles, features, and spreads. Our official photographers are always on site capturing the incredible energy and excitement, and looking for the next superstars.
