People who followed my stuff know that I usually write about food, accessories, training, and other topics that are more science-based than subjective topics, such as topics that are the subject of this article. I decided to grab the science of geek persona's name and write about a topic I know will be useful if there are a thousand and fitness models wanting to be.
It is also a known "hard core" science that is not a BS writer, why do I write something that some will understand as a "soft" thread? Over the years, I have received hundreds of thousands of thousands of people who email me, mail or ask me personally, "How can I become a leisure model?" He has been in business for a long time, he knows. "This is what I get from this newborn and I get it from women who were at the same time but could not" penetrate "efficiently.
The fact that fitness, health and bodybuilding insecure and science and nutrition-based "guru", I've been training a lot of fitness athletes and I have been awarded fitness and figure / bikini demonstrations by NPC, Fitness America, Fitness USA and other associations, and marketing and business counseling for all kinds of athletes , including fitness models, so it did not go so far as to make it possible to use this space to cover non-scientific topics, that is, a fitness model.
This article will be useful for both experienced and the kind of newbie who will "penetrate" the bass. If you are already a professional and successful fitness model, you can be sure you will get useful information about this article.
First of all, the bad news, there is no way to become a successful fitness model. There is no way or magic secret. There are, however, some key things a person can do to greatly increase their chances of "doing it" as a fitness biz model, and perhaps this success is used by bigger things, such as movies, TVs, and so on. 19659003] Many of the best fitness models (Trish Stratus and Vicki Pratt remember, but many others) have all been entertained. In the bottom line, although there is no magic secret to being successful as a fitness model, this article is as close to success as you find it.
"Should I compete?"
This is a question I always ask, and it is not easy to answer. In fact, the answer (drum roll) yes and no. To answer the question in question, the person must first decide why they compete. For example, should you be competitive if your goal is a successful fitness model?
The answer is not. Many of today's well-known fitness models have never competed or competed in some small shows and apparently were not successful in fitness models. However, competitors have the opportunity.
One is the exposure. Top-level presentations are often editors, publishers, photographers, complementing business owners and other business people. So the racer can improve the exposure. It also makes sense for competitors to try to build a business that is connected with their competitors or to profit from the acquisition of the show.
For example, you say there is a private gym that you are trying to build. Of course, if you wear Ms Fitness America or win NPC Nationals and IFBB pro, it will help your reputation and reputation. There are many scenarios that would help win the show for a business or other endeavor.
On the other hand, it should be recognized that winning the show in no way guarantees success in business is really a business) is a fitness model. The phone does not turn off the hook for great deals on contracts. In addition, it is very important to understand that it is common that the 4th or 6th or 8th position of the fitness or figurative show will get more pressure than the winner. Why? Although the winner should have won the show, often other editors, publishers, accessories, etc., they feel more marketable.
I've often seen that the winner was astonished that she was almost aware of it and other girls who were on a lower level watched photos, magazine coverage, and so on. form. Something to keep in mind when you ask yourself the important question: "have to compete, and if so, why compete? Answer this question and you will know the answer to the chapter header. Acquiring a title can be a staircase, but it is
Now, if you compete for fun, then you're definitely going to, but the above is focused on your competitors because the fitness model model is the one you're looking for. business aspect
Better Body, Bad Alliance
Okay so after reading these, you've decided to compete or compete again If you do not plan to compete, you can skip this section The biggest mistake I see here , so many galleons have the proper body for the wrong alliance. Each federation has its own criterion of criticism, and the competitor simply does it because it does not they dealt with the research on which program would be best suited to them.
A perfect real world example for this. I recently awarded a show whose criteria for women would be rather toned on the winding, softer side than the muscular and the more sporty, the less weight we could afford the other associations. At this show it turned out to be one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen. It was very proportionate, with a large muscle tone, lean and athletic, with narrow hips, waist and wider shoulders. How did you do this show? Did not even make the best of ten?
Why? Because he was not what we were asked to look for and did not meet the criteria. After the show I told her she looks great, but it's not the covenant. I told him that he had a lot more NPC-type bodies, where a little more muscle, athletic structure and less body weight rewarded.
Next week I was judging NPC fitness, figure and bodybuilding show and was there. How did he do it? The entire show was judged by all the judges who voted unanimously for the number one vote.
Conversely, if your body type is more rounded and toned, but a slightly larger (but not fat) hip is a bit bigger than the competitor, say on Fitness America. If you compete:
(1) will know exactly what the criterion for the federation is, and view these presentations as viewers of multiple alliances and see which physics, style, and so on. fits the best.
(3) You have to decide whether you really have the athletic ability to participate in a tournament (which is routine) or a figure / bikini tournament.
who would do well in a figurative show, but he does not really have athletic abilities to make routines compete with other athletes in the show. Some presentations allow you to work in both races and certain habits.
Network 101: Dossier and not …
In many ways, this area, which breaks or interrupts every business, people in the fitness industry are doing a surprisingly bad job. If you do not network and sell yourself, you can really forget real success as a fitness model or virtually every business. For space, we insist on fitness.
When I first started, I was self-marketing. I could find it at any show that I thought would be a chance to walk in exhibitions, bodybuilding, shows, fitness shows and more. I sold out a zillion card, and I bought one million and I followed each one of them. There are so many industry meetings, tours, parties, etc. I went as far as I could. Now the industry's reputation and experience is that I do not have to go to such a show unless I feel or meet, but at first it was very useful.
I'm always surprised by the number of fitness models who contact me who have never been to Arnold Classic Fitness Weekend or Mr. Olympia or at exhibitions such as NNFA Expo West and others. If you want to be in a fitness business, then hell will be better treated than a business.
I've seen many beautiful girls who want a fitness model who thinks they are there for a long time, and somebody offers to put their face on a magazine cover. News flashes, there are millions of beautiful women out there, and it is noticeable that you have to brag about doing business like everyone else, networking your ass, or being a good agent (if you can afford such a thing) who is doing it for you.
Choose some of the industry's most important industry presentations (some mentioned above) and go with them every year. Plan an attack on how you plan to market yourself and your network. Many fitness models, bodybuilders, etc. They see the show as a big party. If that is the case, have fun on the party, but do not think it's really marketing like a serious businessman or athlete.
Another thing that always puzzles me is the number of fitness models who do not have a business card, or there are cards that are printed on their home blister printer! They ask me to help them or anything else and say "give me your card," and look at me like, "I'm so pretty, This attitude will turn off editors, photographers, writers and if you know that you were really a transvestite Do not do It Any beautiful girl who thinks the world has to give them a favor 100 people are ready to behave like professionals
Once upon a time you wonder why fitness is so good as he likes it … That's why … never go to the show for a network without good cards, bios, and professionally made head and body recordings that these editors , publishers, photographers, industry types, etc., well enough to find you, find it for the first time and introduce themselves. And of course, it is self-evident it must be in good condition and need some glitter to look the best.
Do you want to go to presentations and party? All right, but do it yourself after you've done the job and do not make the courage of yourself in an industry-sponsored meeting. Hi, basically I got into the Arnold Classic last year after going to a sushi place with some well-known industry types and owners of companies (you know who you are!) But nobody ever saw me! Our little private person got together after the show to let go.
Let me show you the example of the last real world of how to not project yourself. Last year I was working as a consultant for a medium-sized subsidiary consultancy company. The owner of the company asked me if I could have a couple of fitness models that are suitable for presenting their stand. In fact, he asked "unknowns, some new faces that people have not yet seen, but they have a real potential to grow with the company." I went and found two of those guys who thought I was doing the bill.
He offered to pay flights, room and food, and pay a thousand dollars for the days. The two girls were told that the stand was sharp at 9 o'clock. Before the evening at the hotel, I saw that the two girls had boarded in a niche at 11 o'clock or dressed to kill, apparently on the road to the parties. The next day they appeared on the booth one and a half hours later and started hanging. What was the result? (1) was completely embarrassed as I recommended them to the owner of the company (2), they will never work again (3) they will never get work again and (4) a reference to any of our other work.
I see this kind of thing all the time in fitness biz and it's not just about fitness models. Amazingly, a few weeks after the show I sent emails to me and the owner of the company who wanted to know when to get their next job! Wonderful …
Who loves you baby?
If there is a universal truth, that is the camera you like or not. All professional photographers will tell you this. For some unknown reasons, some people are very photogenic and some do not. True, there are well-known fitness models (who have to be anonymous, as they may think about it when they are next) who are not as attractive as they are personally. Only the camera likes them and is very photogenic but not terribly beautiful personally.
Conversely, I have seen the turn many times; a girl who looks a lot better personally than at photos. Such is the fate of a person who wants to have all kinds of models, including the fitness model. If you find that you are not very photogenic, continue working with different photographers until you find a photo that really grabs and pays the photographer.
Now that I'm honestly honest, there are some who want fitness models to be not "unphotogenic", they're just "fugly"! There are people who have no business purpose to be fitness models. Not bad people, but just mean they have to break out of delusions and find a job that is more appropriate than a radio personality ….
"How do I get into magazines?"  This section includes all that I covered above and adds some additional strategies. For example, as I mentioned earlier, participating in fitness shows and / or figurines / bikini shows may increase the exposure and thus draws attention to a magazine publisher or photographer. Good linking to different exhibitions can have the same effect, and of course, if you have a good portfolio with a photographer who really seizes your appearance, a good web page, etc. It will be more likely to get into magazines or advertise, etc.
However, all these strategies are still somewhat passive or active in my opinion. They still have the "model" expectations. As for me, waiting for bus stops and pregnancy tests. Success does not expect any people … or women like me. So, after all of the above advice has been taken into account that it has an impact on obtaining coverage for the magazine, what else can it be?
First, read and familiarize yourself with all the journals you want to know about who and what style of magazine is. Now I can tell you when you say you're a major editor of a good fitness or bodybuilding publication and say, "Hello, I'm Bob Smith, what's your name?" and the fitness model has no idea that Bob Smith, Bob will not be kind to accept. Why? You need to know who the major players are in the publications they want to see. Then he does the favor, not the other way round. You need to know who is the most important player and are actively looking for them, do not wait for them to "discover" them.
If you look at any headline in any magazine in the magazine, we'll tell you who the publisher, who is the Editor and so on. The postal address of this magazine is often found on the website and email. What prevents you from viewing these names and submitting the images and starting over again? Nothing, that's it. If you see the spread of photos, you think that you've done very well, what prevents you from finding out who the photographer is and will contact them directly and send them the pictures? Nothing, that's it.
I want you to break in the business, take a break, do not sit there because you think you're looking for not. Be proactive, not reactive. Fortune is the remainder of the design. Be successful with planning. As my brother told me when I told him in my childhood that I was too scared to ask a pretty little girl, "what's the worst thing that can happen to Will?" This is the worst thing that can happen to you.
Beware of idiots, ghosts, morons, perverts, donkeys, and sleazoids!
This section is self explanatory, but it is worth mentioning. Like all industries involved in entertaining media (eg television, theater, modeling, etc.), the fitness industry attracts web idiots, wizards, perverts, hollow bags and sleazoids. Some.
There are also classes known as schmoe, but we leave it to another place and time. The point is, you meet with the right people while you are not participating in a group of worthless types who just mock, delay, or just flatten.
For example, a guy comes saying he wants to "shoot" magazines, but what do you know about this guy really? Do you have a camera and some business cards, so make him a photographer? Bad! If somebody wants to shoot and not a well-known name (and need to know who is a well-known photographer because he has been researching it!), Find out who they are. Do you have any references you can call? Girls you can contact with have fired so far and were happy with the job? What magazines did you publish? Do you do it professionally or from hobby? That's the sort of thing.
Another thing I see is the big internet scam. I'm amazing how many girls get cheated on these web idiots. In the lesson you get what you pay for, so if you want to build a website freely, you will get what you pay for. Yes, good money is needed on the net, and the net can be great for marketing and communication, but it's mostly a scam.
It's better to pay a good web designer and webmaster who has experience with other fitness model types and references you can talk to. I can not tell you what kind of girls were online who lost something on the Internet like a "fan" who volunteered to build a free website and either run out of all the money on the site, porn sites and all other things , which made them regret as hell that they ever agreed with the side.
Obviously I can not go to the list of all the possible pitfalls of the idiot online, the fun stores, schlubs, morons, perverts, scum bags and sleazoids, but you get the idea. Be careful!
Conclusion: Well, that's enough to end the down and dirty guide to the "making" basics as a fitness model. Of course, I can deal with a lot of business issues I could cover and give tricks, but the best advice is that you will find in a small room and will do more to you if you follow suit than you might notice.
Good luck and see in the magazines!
