RE: info on competing+fitness modeling
I don't want to be pessimistic aboout fitness modelling but I'm going to be anyway! It seems really hard to get into fitness modelling here in the UK as there just isn't an industry.
For one thing there are no magazines to appear in focusing on fitness and muscle for females, even the British edition of Muscle and Fitness Hers has been stopped (not much takeup).
Another thing, it seems the female "buff" body is still not liked in mainstream ads. How many times have you seen an advertisement for fitness stuff ie clothes, gyms, equipment and the model is usually skinny with no muscle tone.
I've noticed that a few comeptiors in UK who want to get into fitness modelling do go to States and Canada, even Europe as there are more opportunities there.
Yes, Fitphysiques has a few female "buff" bodies, but I looked recently at the new models to the website and I don't really see why these models are "fitness" models, they are just skinny. So again not really an industry. Just my opinions....
As for competing, depends on what you want to do but the events are there as Kitty has given you, so compete away, but compete for your self not for the hopes of making a carrer out of it.
