Hopefully, these fitness model posing tips and the video will help you in positioning your body so you look your best during competition – or in front of the camera.

1. Will Relaxing Help?

First, relax your entire body. When you are natural and agile you appear less stressed and more confident in your posing. Just as a musician relaxes his or her fingers before a performance, you should take some deep breaths and throw away any anxiety in your mind and body.

2. How Do I Stand?

For fitness posing, stand with your chest out, keep your body straight but not too rigid, hand on the hip with elbow out front, toes pointed with heel slightly off the floor. Now you have a basic stance from which to work.

3. Should I Smile?

One of the toughest parts for this type of model is the smile. You may have to hold your smile for a long period of time so try to relax your face as much as possible.

4. How Do I Walk?

When you come out onto the stage, be confident with a smile and a wave to those watching. Use a friendly tone to give your audience a feeling of warmth.

Make a stop in the middle, striking a pose to the right and to the left. Then walk to the other side of the stage. This could vary with some shows but this is basic.

5. How Should I Practice Fitness Model Posing?

The best way to learn how to do fitness poses is to practice the moves. Watch videos, look at health magazines and learn from the best. Do your posing in front of friends or family members to get feedback. Have them encourage you to smile if it fades while presenting your show.
