Fitness posing is a lot more muscular, leaner and harder than the way a bikini model would pose.

The Foxy Fitness model category requires you to switch on your muscles a little bit more than a Bikini Beauty, whilst still looking confident and relatively relaxed. Just like any category, it is important to pick what pose works best for you and what makes you look your best.

FRONT POSE

Your front pose is a chance to show great symmetry from the top the bottom.

This means your lower half needs to be in proportion to your mid section and your upper body.

Make sure you’re up tall, turning on your quads, tightening up the mid section and pushing up that upper body to make you stand tall and proud, and don’t forget to smile.

Tip: In this pose we are taking notice of: Smile, Confidence, Mid Section/Abs, Shoulders, Biceps and Quads.

SIDE POSE – LEFT AND RIGHT

The Foxy Fitness category is another chance to show off your symmetry and lean physique.

For the side pose it requires you to turn to the side and show us what you’ve got. Some competitors opt to have both hands on their hips/waist, one hand on their hips/waist or no hands on at all.

Tip: In this pose we are looking at the following: Smile, Confidence, Quads, Hamstrings, Glutes, Midsection/abs, obliques, shoulders, biceps and triceps.

REAR POSE

Just like any category, this is where it can all go wrong, or it can all go right.

Make sure you’re not pushing your hips too far back, otherwise we won’t see your upper back muscularity and you will be marked down for this.

There are two common ways to do this pose. One described above in Bikini Beauties with their hands flat on the top part of the hips and pushing against to flex your back muscles. Another very common method is placing the tips of your fingers on the back of your head/ears to bring out your lats and rear delts a bit more. Make sure you move your hair out of the way so we can see your back. You may also look back at the judges and give them a smile as you do this, it’s a nice touch and is a good way to add personality to your poses. You may do both, starting with one and transitioning into the other.

Tip: With this pose, we are looking for the following: Upper Back(Upper/Mid/Lower Traps, Rhomboids, Lats), Rear and Medial Delts(Shoulders), Biceps, Lower Back(Spinal Erectors), Glutes, Hamstrings and Calves.
