“I am truly honored that I was chosen for the cover of Vigorous Magazine. About two months ago I competed in my first Bikini Competition, with the IPL, taking first in my class and earning my IPL PRO Card. I also had the pleasure of doing my first photo shoot with Michael Brooks. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that it would lead me to a magazine cover. I am so grateful for all the opportunities this journey has presented me with. Not only with the opportunity to be on a magazine, but it also allowed me to meet so many other remarkable and inspiring athletes. I was so fortunate to be a part of Tawnya Cline’s smoothies and blenders team, who were all very encouraging and supportive through the whole process. Ben Yosef has such an amazing League, which has granted me with an unforgettable experience, and I can’t wait to compete in my first PRO show with the IPL this September!”
The International Physique League is a competitive fitness federation celebrating top “Natural”/drug-tested physiques from around the Globe! The IPL offers 7 divisions of competition including Bodybuilding, Figure, Athletic, Sports Model, Bikini, & Fitness Angels and Evening Gown.
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. TheIPL 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.
MiBoLife Publishing and the IPL have adjusted Physique Competition for more mainstream appeal. We have severed the sport’s connection with the negative stigmas that have given “Bodybuilding” a bad name for decades. And, we have positioned the sport to attract major sponsors and endorsements, as well as have Olympic games potential.
