Thinking about competing, but aren’t sure how to get started or where to find information? Well, I’m here to help! Before I began competing, I remember looking at contest photos from the National Physique Committee (NPC) in the pages of Muscle & Fitness Hers and Flex magazine. I was in awe of the amazing physiques. I thought to myself, “I want to do that. I want to look like that!”

So, where did I start? I went online and typed in to look for more information on this organization that had piqued my interest. I was thrilled to find everything I needed on one website. All of my questions were answered, and I got to see so many contest photos, fitness photos from shoots done by J.M. Manion, and interviews from various athletes, both NPC and IFBB competitors. Everything I needed was at my fingertips!

Check out the NPC clothing. They have really cute stuff for men and women. Their website is

Also, if you are looking to book a photo shoot since you will be in the shape of your life, make sure to book with J.M Manion. Visit his website here:

I hope this helped a bit.

Until next time,
Love, India Paulino
