Fitness Ambassador Category (New in 2018)
The Fitness Ambassador Category is one of our new Male categories in 2018.
The Fitness Ambassador Category will consist of only ONE (1) ROUND – Fitness Active Wear Round.
This category has an array of classes including the Newcomers Class.
OVERVIEW OF THE FITNESS AMBASSADOR CATEGORY
Our definition of a Fitness Ambassador is an athlete that personifies the “Fitness Industry” on a whole and so has a combination of Body, Looks, Personality and Stage Presence.
Judges are looking for a lean, toned, athletic body type with looks that are marketable to a Fitness Apparel Company and is the complete package!
Fitness Ambassadors can cross over into Fitness Modeling as the body types are much the same the only difference is that the Fitness Ambassador Category is only ONE (1) Round: Fitness Active wear. Attire details and images listed below.
Fitness Ambassador Divisions
The Fitness Ambassador category will be broken into the following divisions:
All divisions may be split further by height classes (ie. short, medium, tall) subject to final competitor numbers which will be known after the official registration. Competitors will be advised at the competitor briefing.
Competitors can enter in to more than one division ( ie. Junior and Open or Novice and Open etc..) if they desire, subject to the division age and applicable entry fees.
Judging Round in Fitness Ambassador
There will be ONE (1) round in the Fitness Ambassador category and this will be a:
•Fitness Active Wear Round
FITNESS ACTIVE WEAR ROUND
Contestants will be required to wear Fitness Active Wear that will consist of Fitness Shorts and joggers only. Refer to images below showing the style of Fitness Shorts required. Any color and brand is acceptable.
BODY PROPORTION, CONDITION & OVERALL LOOKS 50%
Body proportion, condition & Overall looks – 40% of Score Judges will be looking for fit, masculine contestants who display proper shape and symmetry combined with overall condition. Keep in mind this is not a bodybuilding contest, so extreme muscularity will be negatively scored. We will be looking for athletes who are athletic with a lean sculptured look.
MARKETABILITY, PERSONALITY AND STAGE PRESENCE 50%
Our expert panel will be looking for contestants who have great stage presence and a very marketable look for Fitness Apparel company.
Open and Classic divisions will be required to do an individual catwalk either as a T walk or Spotlight walk across the stage (type of walk will be determined based on the final competitor numbers) in each round. At a set point on stage Ambassadors will take a moment to pose, do either a quarter or half turn and move either to the next set point on stage (if-T walk) and do the same or move to the rear of stage and commence the formation of a line-up.
Once each competitor has performed their individual walk each line-up of competitors will be asked to move forward for the comparisons to occur.
For the comparisons competitors will be asked to perform ¼ turns. This may occur several times whilst being judged as judges may need extra time to finalise their scoring. (Note: No moves or stances of any sexual or lewd nature will be tolerated.)
Newcomers & Junior divisions will not perform individual walks, rather they will come on collectively in each respective group where by comparisons and ¼ turns will be performed.
THE JUDGING PANEL
An expert Judging Panel for the Fitness Ambassadors Divisions will be made up of professionals from within the fitness, fashion and health industry such as Modelling Agents, Professional Fitness and Fashion Photographers, Talent Scouts and Fashion Industry Members, as well as some Internationally Recognized fitness Celebrities.
