Cover image captured by renowned photographer, Michael Brooks, during the weekend of the 2019 4th Annual IPL Texas State Pro/Am on July 20th in Houston, TX.
Raquel Flaherty is a top IPL Bikini Pro. She has also competed in Women’s Athletic and Evening Gown. And she is the IPL Texas Contest Promoter.
“Never in my wildest dreams did I see myself as a Bikini Pro, let alone on the cover of a magazine. I am shocked and beyond grateful to the IPL for allowing me the honor of being on the cover of SEAM! My journey has been one of a mom who wanted to start a business to have more time with family. I then discovered that my entrepreneur family had a team called the H24Fit Smoothies. From there everything spiraled into an amazing journey that is only just beginning! Don’t let fear stop you from pursuing your dreams. Get to be who you are and live in your power.”

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.
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 & SEAM. Five magazines. Tons of potential cover models and countless articles, features, and spreads. Michael Brooks Photography is always on site capturing the incredible energy and excitement, and looking for the next superstars.
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.
