How did it feel to win Fitness Angels Pro status?

I literally jumped for joy on stage! Just to qualify for APEX was an accomplishment in itself, and then to win my IPL PRO CARD at the year end event was an indescribable feeling.

How was your preparation for this category and competition different from competitions in the past?

In prep for this show, I found a new trainer in my area and he has really helped me get to the next level as an athlete. I would say the daily support and knowledge the Lang Fitness team offered was the biggest change for that particular show. In terms of attire, the wings are a huge part of planning how you’ll represent your figure and what you will wear.

What are your favorite and least favorite parts of the Fitness Angels division?

The uniqueness of the fitness angels attire and the personality you can add to your stage routine is probably my favorite part. My particular choice in design for this show allowed for an elegance on stage with an edgy side as well. The personality you can add to your suit, routine, and overall presence is completely up to you. Whereas in Bikini it’s much more uniform. My least favorite part would be that not as many girls compete in the category, and I don’t know why… IT’S THE BEST ONE!!!

What advice can you give to others who are interested in competing in the Fitness Angels division?

Be you. If you feel confident in what you’re wearing on stage, it’s going to shine. If you want big wings, wear big wings. If you want magenta pink wings, you rock those pink wings. It’s a blank canvas to show off your physique in whatever creative way you desire.

“I love that this division allows ladies to channel their inner fierce, that sassier Victoria Secret side that we all have.” -IPL PRO LYLIAN MUTTAKYAWA

How did it feel to win Fitness Angels Pro status?

I have never felt quite so ethereal. Winning was the icing on the cake (or in this case the honey on the rice cake). I came on a mission to win every division I entered, so the validation of earning Pro status simply warmed my heart.

How was your preparation for this category and competition different from competitions in the past?

This was my very first competition and I decided to enter four divisions; Bikini, Sports Model, Fitness Angels and Evening Gown. The preparation to crossover between categories was more mental than anything. I would envision a feeling and mood for each division. For Fitness Angels, the words of the day were “float” and “fly”.

What are your favorite and least favorite parts of the Fitness Angels division?

I love this division so much that my least favorite part is when the stage time ends. That, plus the cost of a grand pair of wings. I love that this division allows ladies to channel their inner fierce, that sassier Victoria Secret side that we all have.

What advice can you give to others who are interested in competing in the Fitness Angels division?

I think it’s one of the divisions that the cost of the costume can really add up. The possibilities are endless, so be creative and remember simple does not have to mean boring. To elevate your costume, it’s important to note that this is still a physique competition so present yourself in a manner that accentuates your strongest features. Most importantly, have fun gliding on that stage!

“Keep it unique, bring your very own beautiful YOU on stage…with colors and wings that represent YOU. Those things that make YOU feel like an angel.” -IPL PRO FRAUKA KOZAR

How was your preparation for this category and competition different from competitions in the past?

I knew for Fitness Angels I needed to keep it softer and graceful, sexy and angelic in my presentation. When I stepped on stage as a Fitness Angel I just felt beautiful, remembered to keep it soft and angelic, and just felt beautiful in my wings.

What are your favorite and least favorite parts of the Fitness Angels division?

My favorite part of the Fitness Angels division is the creativity we can bring to stage, the creative part in all of us. I think that is what makes it so beautiful, unique and divine. My least favorite part of it is other competitors taking the ideas from Fitness Angel Pros and copying them. I know that might sound harsh to some, but this is what I truly feel in my heart. I think Fitness Angels should be judged in part on creativity and design. I hope I do not offend anyone with my truth.

What advice can you give to others who are interested in competing in the Fitness Angels division?

Keep it unique, bring your very own beautiful YOU on stage…with colors and wings that represent YOU, those things that make YOU feel like an angel. Practice poise, angelic-ness, have your higher power and gratitude in your heart as you are walking down the stage.

When can we expect to see you back on the IPL stage?

My next goal to compete is in September of this year in Sacramento and I am working on a new set and design that will hopefully bring lots of sparkle, angelic and sexy to stage.


“I don’t have a least favorite part of the Fitness Angels division. Being a part of the division made ‘my heart happy.’” -IPL PRO ANGEL’A M JONES

How did it feel to win Fitness Angels Pro status?

A-MA-ZING! The feeling of accomplishment of achieving a personal career/fitness goal felt so invigorating. It gave me a thirst and desire to drive harder at some other career/fitness goals I’d set for myself. I’d accomplished something first for myself, for my senior classes that I teach, and for “all” my nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.” I‘ve always believed I live an intentional and purposeful life, so this achievement is “purposeful”, “intentional” and “meaningful”!

In terms of attire, the wings are a huge part of planning how you’ll represent your figure and what you will wear. What went into planning for your ultimate success in this category?

I knew that, as part of my career in fitness, I would like the title of Fitness Angel Pro under my belt. I wasn’t sure at first how I would choose the wings that were right for me, the color of the wings or how big they would be. It was definitely becoming a “project”. I’m sort of a perfectionist and things have to all “come together for me”. Especially when I’m planning. All the way down to my signature platinum nail color.

What are your favorite and least favorite parts of the Fitness Angels division?

I don’t have a least favorite part of the Fitness Angels division. Being a part of the division made “my heart happy”. Winning my Pro Card as a Fitness Angel made “my heart sing!”

What advice can you give to others who are interested in competing in the Fitness Angels division?

I say go for it. Have fun and enjoy this opportunity to do something unique.

When can we expect to see you back on the IPL stage?

I knew I needed to consider when I would do my Pro Debut, while still working to complete my other Career/Fitness goals. If I’m able to complete the Grander Wings that I’m working on, then it will definitely be in August 2017.
