In 2014 ANB model categories have slightly changed to continually improve this fast growing category. The categories are now:
2014 FEMALE MODEL DIVISIONS
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. Depending on the number of competitors, this division may be split into height categories. Two rounds only – T-Walk and Themed/Fitness wear routine. Please note no g-string costumes are allowed.
expected to be leaner than the Model category however not totally defined in all areas as would be expected in the Figure Category. Fitness Model competitors must have a very toned and taut body and leaner in the abdominal area than the Swimsuit Model, however still requires to have a womanly figure. Less detail and definition is required to that of a figure competitor and the delineation between the fitness model and figure competitor is the level of definition and muscle separation in the torso and limbs (both arms and legs). If a competitor has very defined arms, legs and back they would be better suited to the Figure Category. The Central Coast comp will only be a two round comp – T-Walk & lineup; and a SportsWear walk. There is no routine.
2014 MALE MODEL DIVISIONS
The major difference between a male fitness model and the new Muscle Model division is primarily determined by the size of the athlete. Athletes displaying particularly larger legs and overall larger muscular size would be more suited to the Muscle Model division. Both Male model divisions must keep posing very relaxed as it is not a body building division. Male models can use some bodybuilding poses as long as its kept to a minimum. Ab and bicep posing are great for this division. The idea is to look as though your having fun with each round displaying a bit of your personality. In the Central Coast comp, competitors will be required to do two (2) rounds only – T Walk and Themed fitness wear.
Posing requirements, Judging Criteria, Comp Preparation and other essential information will be explained in the ‘Get The Edge’ Pre-Competition Workshop, on February 23rd. If you want to know more about the workshop, or book your place, click here.
