My goal is to become a fitness model for women 50 and over. As time passes send out another email with an article and state that you are still interested in providing content. I love the goal of living until ! As mentioned earlier, fitness modeling is a competitive field.
Now days everyone is a fitness model i. Anyways, the point of this is to give you the lowdown on what fitness modeling is, what it entails, how to go about doing it. Fitness modeling is challenging. A lot of depends on what exactly the job is. However, you could potentially spend all day on set for make up, fittings, etc.
There is also a lot of down time where you just sit so it can be very boring. In some cases, you will end up paying the photographer to shoot you and submit you to publications. This is rather typical and will cost you money. In order to be a fitness model you must be in shape. More times than not the two avenues of media will be print or video.
Get comfortable on camera. If you are doing print work search out a bunch of images of people that have done this before. This will give you some sort of idea of what you need to do. As mentioned earlier, fitness modeling is a competitive field. You can book A LOT of things on your own, no doubt. An agency will find you work that is essentially available in your area. Magazine Covers and Spreads? Reebok, Nike, Under Armor?
BTW, that is me at my biggest, I no longer look like that because its was difficult to book commercial work. Like less than 5 percent shredded. You need to figure out what you look like.
I remember my first photo shoot like it was yesterday. It was very trial and error for me starting out. Honestly, just ask on Facebook if there is anyone in your area that could shoot you. You want someone with experience that will help you, teach you, and possibly get you published. I have heard some horror stories of models being complete jackasses to photographers. If you can be normal for four hours, respect the photographers time and have a sense of gratitude you will get much farther in the industry than you could have ever imagined.
Be on time and prepared. Get a DARK spray tan and come in ripped to shreds. Reach out to Editors if magazine is your goal. LinkedIn is your tool on this one. I would recommend reaching out to a bunch of editors and introducing yourself to them.
Just tell them you like their magazine why and if there is ever an opportunity for you to provide content. This step separates people who are go getters vs those you are lazy. Editors are always looking for good articles to put in their magazines or online. If you can write you have a good thing going for you. Build a relationship with the decision makers. They get a ton of emails daily. You might not hear from them for months. As time passes send out another email with an article and state that you are still interested in providing content.
Set a few goals, get dieted down and set up a couple of photo shoots. SLU considers the safety and well-being of aspiring models to be a top priority.
