WHAT SEPERATES A SWIMSUIT MODEL FROM A FEMALE FITNESS MODEL?
This is a very important question that needs clarification because athletes need to have a clear criterion on what the judges will be looking for the day they step on stage. The major difference between a model and a fitness model is primarily determined by how lean the athlete is. There is no doubt a fine line between being too lean and not quite lean enough so next up we will go over the criteria in greater detail.
SWIMSUIT MODELS are to depict a picture of health to the general public however they must still have some athleticism about themselves. Models are not expected to be lean and defined though they must still have a toned body and good figure. Models are judged on their physical appearance, beauty, body shape and tone, presentation, confidence, cat walk, stage presence and marketability
