Cover image captured by renowned photographer, Michael Brooks, onstage at the 2020 5th Annual IPL Arizona contest on October 3rd in Phoenix, AZ.
At this contest Nicolas Mark hit the IPL stage for the first time. He placed 1st in Men’s Athletic Open and earned his IPL Pro Card. Then went on to make his Pro Debut at this show, placing 1st, earning his first IPL Pro title.
The following month he would go on to compete at APEX V (the IPL’s year-end-event) in Pro Men’s Athletic. At APEX he placed 1st, earning his second IPL Pro title and became the IPL’s new APEX Pro Men’s Athletic Champion.
Then he landed at #19 on the Top 20 IPL Stories of 2020 for the impact he had on the IPL stage this year.
Nicolas can also be seen in the first issue of ATHLETIC Magazine, releasing in January 2021, going in depth about how he built his incredible v-taper!
“I am truly grateful for the opportunity to compete in the International Physique League this year. Receiving my Pro status within the IPL was such a blessing. But to be featured and placed on the cover of Natural GAINZ Magazine all in the same year…I could not have asked for anything more. I am truly honored and at a loss for words. It has always been a dream of mine to be on the cover of a health & fitness magazine.
Although 2020 has been a difficult year, the one thing I have always believed in is that dreams do come true if you continue to have faith and put everything you’ve got into something you love, no matter the difficult circumstances. I always remind myself that the more challenges you face, the greater the reward. If you continue to do what you love and never give up, unbelievable things will come your way!” – Nicolas Mark [2X IPL Men’s Athletic Pro Champion & Reigning APEX Pro Champ]

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 also offers “Exhibition Divisions” which do not have a Professional level. These divisions include Women’s Bikini Mammas, Men’s Beach Body, Inspiration Transformation, Women’s Themewear & 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. 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 & ATHLETIC. Six 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.
