“I feel grateful and honored to appear on this cover. I just celebrated 40 years in the fitness industry. At 19 years old I struggled with anorexia and weighed only 80lbs. I made a decision a year later to live, and have gone on to live a healthy active lifestyle since. I have been blessed to work with countless others to achieve their goals and become their best. Today, at 3 months shy of 58 and 120lbs, I feel better than ever. Becoming a part of the IPL has been a dream come true. As a promoter, to offer this amazing platform for others to shine, and as an athlete to continue to do what I love. Thank you Ben and Michael for this gift!”

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 spreadsMichael 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.
