Figure Competitor Kayleigh, Cleary: “You compete against yourself every day during your prep.” “This has been a pretty incredible experience…between working full-time, being the mother of a 21-month-old daughter, and training, it’s definitely been a balancing act. Most people just see the end product on the stage, but the hardest part about this sport is that even though you’re competing against other people on the stage, you compete against yourself every day during your prep. You are the one making all of your food ahead of time, sticking to your eating plan, working out at the gym, and it’s a competition with yourself every day. It definitely pulls out your inner strength and discipline.”

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.
