How do I become a fitness Model?
Most established fitness models will recommend that anyone who is interested in getting into the business should consider going to fitness shows specifically as a spectator. If your goal of lifetime fitness has formed your physique into a model quality shape, you should consider entering your athletic build into the fitness community as a model.
Shows like the Arnold Classic are ideal when you want to observe other models and get an idea of what is expected and looked for as a model. Not only will you learn about the business, you can talk to others who have already made a name for themselves or are on their way up now. You can also visit smaller expositions to speak to more people and get a line on the latest in exercise equipment for both mens health and womens health.
If you have done some research and haven’t risked yourself in discovering exactly what is involved in becoming a model and maintaining your fitness routine, you can take a few steps to get you started. Take flattering pictures of your athletic build in various positions. Get business cards with your contact information and stating that you are, in fact, a model in the fitness business.
Another idea is to build or have someone build your own self-promoting web site. Include the web address on your business cards and hand them out to anyone you meet who might have use for you as a model. Self-promotion is the key to being successful in the fitness business.
Finally, never take ‘no’ for an answer. Keep at your desire to become a professional model in the fitness industry. If you feel like you are hitting a wall, move on to someone else and work on establishing that contact. If you know of an agent, it might be a good idea to approach them about your physique and desire to be in the modeling business.
