A CELEBRATION OF DRUG-TESTED PHYSIQUE ATHLETES.
Natural Magazine International (NATURALMAG) from The International Physique League (IPL) is a celebration of drug-tested Physique Athletes. There are so many amazing drug-free athletes not getting the recognition they deserve, and we are changing that.

We also bring you contest coverage and highlights, workout tips, competitor spotlights, motivational inspiration, and much more. Natural Magazine International was launched February 1, 2013.
