Chrissy Zmijewski Wins IFPA Figure Championship

Capturing consecutive titles this year, Chrissy Zmijewski is on her game and on top of the IFPA.

Natural pro Chrissy Zmijewski capped her season in a perfect way this past Saturday, winning the figure overall at the IFPA Yorton Cup Pro World Championships in Phoenix, Arizona. It’s was two in a row for the 33-year-old personal trainer and fitness book author from California, who also won the IFPA Pro USA in Sacramento over the summer.

Chrissy—a longtime role model in the sport who won her first show in 2006 in St. Charles, Illinois—placed in the top three in two WNBF pro shows and has previously made top five in the NPC, but has began to dominate the scene since turning to the IFPA (International Federation of Physique Athletes). Helping that trend, she says, have been improvements to her lower body, especially hamstrings, where she’s added size and enhanced symmetry.

The federation has been a good fit for the 5-foot-9, 132-pound former natural bodybuilder, who would love to see some kind of routine added to IFPA figure where the women could flex and show off their hard work. Luckily, fans never have to worry about that element missing on our site.

More importantly, Chrissy is happy to be back on stage after stress and injuries limited her in 2011. Although delighted with her recent success, the thoughtful competitor still keeps things in perspective. During a recent online radio interview, she shared advice and reminders on competing that she frequently passes on to clients. “The placing is very subjective,” she says. “The trophy is the fact that you have a healthy, awesome body.”
