The Fit Expo Los Angeles 2013: Iron Man Magazine Naturally Bikini Championships (Part 1)


The Iron Man Magazine Naturally Championships is the longest running stage attraction during the Los Angeles Fit Expo with several qualifying and main round segments scheduled throughout the course of its designated day of competition. People from all around the world would contend in different groups or classes based on height, weight or age brackets within the specialized categories of figure, bikini, and male physique, educating an attentive audience with the experience of a professionally formatted fitness contest. In a way, competitions such as these provide great insight for other professionals within other sectors of the modeling industry, as these athletes have trained long and hard in understanding the fine mechanics of poise and presence, discovering for themselves how it all relates to their very own bodies. To provide an example of what the competition had to offer, the following is a look back at the bikini class competitions of this year’s Fit Expo, featuring some amazing athletes and talents currently active within the fitness scene.
