“I rise and I fall. I win and I lose. It all plays a role in what defines me. Competing takes serious discipline, but discipline pays off. Making you stronger in every aspect of this God-given life. I am flattered to grace this NATURALMAG cover, because the world needs strong women. Ones that lift and build each other up. There is room for all of us at the finish line. I hope that this photo represents hard work, determination, perseverance, sacrifices, age defiance, health and beauty. And that I inspire others to go crush their goals. I’m honored. Many thanks to the International Physique League!” –IPL Pro, Tammy Shuff
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.
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.
