Becoming a fitness cover model takes a tremendous amount of dedication and commitment towards sculpting your body and building your career. While there is no one clear way to becoming a fitness magazine cover model, these steps are mandatory for success.
Follow a strict diet and exercise schedule
The most successful fitness models are extremely dedicated to their bodies, especially what goes into them. Develop a sound exercise and eating routine before you start pursuing your modeling career. This allows you to maitain your body while you're on set or running from audition to audition.
Land an agent
While this process is different for each fitness model, finding an agent who believes in your unique qualities as a fitness model is essential. While doing a blind mailing to all agents in your town can result in some meetings, the most effective way to land a superstar agent is through the referral of a fellow professional model.
Build a solid portfolio
Unfortunately, most people don't become a fitness cover model overnight. When just starting out, focus on obtaining beautiful and genuine photos to show potential employers. The quicker you're able to build your portfolio, the quicker you're likely to be booked for your dream cover shoot.
