Welcome to our new Wings Of Strength Brand Ambassador Theresa Ivancik. After taking 2018 off, watch her getting ready for the 2019 women’s bodybuilding competitive season.
Hello everyone, I wanted to first start off by thanking everyone for being such a huge supporter of the Wings of Strength and the sport of female bodybuilding. My name is IIFBB Pro Theresa Ivancik, I am a gym owner of Harlans Elite Fitness, online coach and in-house certified personal trainer, Licensed Insurance agent and a Professional Female Bodybuilder! Along with a very proud and honored sponsored athlete of the “Wings Of Strength.”
Growing up we all have goals, dreams and achievements we want to accomplish. I had three that I was destined to have, to be a personal trainer, own my own gym, and become a professional female bodybuilder. I am extremely excited to say I have been able to accomplish all three and have met and done some amazing things along the way. I have competed competitively for 11 years, doing over20 bodybuilding competitions starting in 2008 as a figure competitor,to just completely falling in love with the female bodybuilder symmetry and look. Through the course of my amateuryears I had the honor to guest speak at my 10-year class reunion, a leading role in a Mikes Hard Lemonade commercial, along with some perfect posing DVDs and two guest poser bookings.
After earning my IFBBPRO card in 2016, I didn’t hesitate to jump right into my pro debut in 2017. Picking this was extremely easy for me as I wanted to grace the stage at one of my inspiring idols and mentors show with Mrs.Lenda Murray, The Norfolk Pro! Becoming an IFBBPRO led me to the muscle mansion an opportunity of a lifetime. Meeting girls I have idolized for years, a little star struck I must say, I felt as if I was dreaming this wild dream the (too good to be true kind). To finally being reunited with our platform federation Wings of Strength, whom I first had the opportunity to work with back in 2011 when they were just beginning this venture. To now seeing where it has evolved to as of today is unbelievable. Without the vision from Jake Woods the female bodybuilding industry would have crumbled. Words can not express our gratitude to having Jake in our lives to support us girls the way he does! So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for believing and seeing what we know as Female Bodybuilding!
Upon my pro debt, I honorably placed second place which qualified me for the Rising Phoenix of 2017 – “The World Championships” Lost once again for words on how this is happening right now, was more then I had ever dreamed for!!! The Rising Phoenix was an experience of a lifetime, although I didn’t manage to place as high as I would have liked, I am destined to return in 2019!
After the Worlds in 2017 I started guest speaking regularly at our local college about breaking the norms. Teaching students its ok to follow your dreams and visions even if no one else sees them. To follow the passion even if it’snot what society see as fit…. And staying focused on the ending goal no matter what anyone has to say. Which leads me to another opportunity that was a huge eye opener for me, I was booked in a New York photo shoot to be published in a book called “Underneath we are women.” By Amy Herrmann. This book is being put together to show the diverse types of women out there in the world, all walks of life with different conditions, and how to be comfortable and happy in your own skin. The stories are unbelievable and remarkable.
As of today, I enjoy motivating and teaching others about health and fitness. My life I wouldn’t change it for the world, if you find something you are passionate about and believe in yourself enough to pursue it anything is possible. I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity I have to represent female bodying and show the world what our sport is truly about!

My name is Virginia Sanchez,I’m an IFBB Pro female Bodybuilder competitor ,I’m a mother and almost 48 years old (27th April ). I started in this sport when I was 17 years old because of my fathe,he loved train with weights and Martial Arts,and in the first moment I touched a dumbbell I think I felt in love with this sport and I knew it was going to be part of my life and what my goals were going to be,to compete at the Ms Olympia stage with the best,nowadays the Rising Phoenix World Championships thanks to Jake Wood and Wings Of Strength.
I used to combined my studies at the university with the gym but at the end I decided to dedicate myself completely to bodybuilding so,I studied nutrition,personal training and also tested as an IFBB judge .
I used to watch the Ms Olympia shows and I imagined myself on that stage,in that moment Lenda Murray was one of the best for me a truly inspiration.After several years trainning really hard,I don’t know why,I decided to stop and had a break,two years after that I lost most of my muscle mass I had the opportunity to work as a publicity model, I combined that with my own gym but something did not work for me,I did not feel good with myself,I needed my work outs and my muscles but when I decided to come back to train I got pregnant so I had to wait more time.Finally I returned and I was selected to compete for the first time in the 2011 European Championship,getting a second place,since that moment everything went very quick for me getting my pro card in the 2013 when I won the Arnold Europe,till that time I have not stop competing and I love it,I made several podiums as in my first pro show in Toronto and Chicago,I qualified three times for the biggest female bodybuilding show since the Ms Olympia was gone ,IFBB Rising Phoenix Rising Phoenix World Championships,the best support we have right now,but the best for me was my 5th place at this amazing show in the 2017,a hard year for me in my private life but that place compensated everything and was a great motivation for me to continue working hard and try to do always my best. You have to believe in yourself,fight for your dreams and never give up.
