Fitness Modeling Salary – Ever Wonder How Much Fitness Models Make?
As with any profession, pay scales have a wide range, depending on experience, type of work, and in the entertainment world, the way a model looks. Here is a quick survey to see if a fitness modeling salary range is enough for you to live on.
Annual Salary Range of a Fitness Model

A More Realistic Approach to Salaries for Fitness Models
A candid interview CareerOcean.Com did with fitness model Jackson Bloore revealed the bare facts about making money in fitness modeling. This model says;
“How do you make money or get paid? It really depends on the job. Magazine and book print jobs typically pay very poorly anywhere between $150/day to maybe $1000/day for a book on the high end if you are lucky. Apparel print pays much better if you are working with top brands and can fetch a few thousand a day.
Television typically pays the best and is often $1000/day on absolute low end to a few thousand per day on the high end.
Keep in mind that anything booked with an agency requires a 20% agency cut right off the top and sometimes additional agency fees as well so the numbers can be deceiving.
Also, keep in mind that with prep time baked in a shoot for $1,000/day doesn’t sound so amazing anymore when you factor in the extra gym sessions leading up to the shoot, tanning, manicure (if needed), haircut, etc. in addition to the general and overall decline in mood that occurs with carb depleting and dehydrating all week.
The people that really make money in this business as models are the people that use the traditional print and television “fitness” work to leverage other business opportunities so you have to be an entrepreneur and a hustler as well.” read more ..
