Cal Pro, NY Pro Figure winners to go head to head for a Muscle & Fitness Hers cover!

Considering how much the sport of figure has grown in recent years, it was only a matter of time before one coast wasn’t big enough for the IFBB Pro League. That’s why, on May 28, IFBB Pro League will feature the first-ever “East vs West Figure Showdown” by holding two contests simultaneously on separate coasts, where the overall winners will compete in an online vote for an upcoming cover of Muscle & Fitness Hers.

“It shows the strength of the figure division,” said IFBB Pro League President Jim Manion. “The sport has been growing in the NPC and IFBB Pro League for years, so this was a natural progression. I think it’s great that Muscle & Fitness Hers is doing this, it’s going to hype both contests even more. May the best woman win.”

In one corner is the California State Pro Figure Championships; in the other, the New York Pro Figure Championships. Whoever comes out on top in each of those contests will be featured in a first-ever online vote, presented by Muscle & Fitness Hers, where fans will be able to vote in a pose-by-pose showdown for the East Versus West Figure Showdown winner. Whoever wins will be flown out to Los Angeles for a photo shoot and cover try with Muscle & Fitness Hers magazine!

“The California Pro has always kicked off the season on the west coast, so to be able to bring more fanfare to the contest is always a good thing,” California Pro Figure Promoter Jon Lindsay said. “Obviously the growth of figure and the number of women competing today made an event like this possible, and I’m very happy to have the California Pro be a part of this.”

The New York Pro Figure Championships were traditionally held on the same night as the NPC Team Universe, which will take place on July 8-9 this year. The event was moved to May to coincide with the New York Pro Men’s Bodybuilding Championships, one of the most prestigious events on the IFBB Pro League schedule. “The New York Pro was the first pro figure show on the East Coast, so I’m very proud to be a part of this,” New York Pro Figure promoter Steve Weinberger said. “There are great figure girls all over the country and I’m proud my show is representing the East Coast. We will put on a great show.”

Tune in to all of the action at the California State Pro Figure Championships and the New York Pro Figure Championships on May 28, then vote for your favorite on Monday, May 31 on Muscle & Fitness Hers!
