Model Agency Sport

As a model, sport and movement are often in the foreground! Fitness and defined bodies play an important role in many areas for both women and men. Not only as a classic fitness model, but also for fashion jobs, or to be able to convey a sporty and healthy life in a commercial for a new smartphone, you also need this . Sport should play an important role in the everyday life of a model anyway. 

Body posture and radiation of Sport Model

When customers book models for sports photography, it is usually about a very good posture or a very good body feeling. It doesn’t matter whether it’s actually a sports production, e.g. a photo shoot for a tennis racket, or an advertising spot in which a men’s model starts running as a businessman. Movements must look authentic. But there is much more to sport than fitness. Even models who dance frequently have a very graceful posture and can advertise products differently than models who have less experience in maintaining body tension and are therefore less trained and practiced.Caution! Too much training can hurt your careerIf you want to assert yourself as a sport and fitness model, you have to say stop at a certain point. Because the wider you get, the more muscle you absorb, the more jobs are out of the question for you. Ideally, as a sports model you should always work on the definition of your body. The more you stay in the average spectrum of athletes, the wider the range for you to get jobs. But which jobs can you do as a sport model?

Sport Model wanted for Shootings and Events

As a sports model, there are usually two large areas in which you can work.

Photo and video production for sports and fitness

The first section is about photo shoots. The more experience you gain, the more you will be booked for commercials. That means the classic work of a model in front of the camera. Here you work alone with the product, e.g. for a Lookbook Shooting. On another day you may be working with many different products for an online shop shooting. As a sports and fitness model, you need more than just muscle power. Especially the charisma plays a big role in the end! Do you get a follow-up booking from your customers, or were you too moody and boring on the set? Too boring in the context of models means that you had too little energy. All in all, this means that you don’t radiate enough positive charisma and your facial expressions in the photos don’t convey what the customer would like them to have. If every photo looks the same at the end, nobody will be satisfied. That’s why facial expressions and emotions are part of the work of a sport and fitness model. In particular the positive charisma and the energy ensure that customers find you sympathetic and that the cooperation is immediately more pleasant.When it comes to photo shoots for online shops, whether it’s about dietary supplements or sports fashion, the following points matter to you:

  • Sportsy, defined figure
  • Positive appearance on the shooting set and in front of customers
  • mimic for varied results

The better you get, the more often a model agency will suggest you also for video production. As you may have seen at photo shootings, such productions can be very demanding. For you it depends on many different things, you are the person of the day who has to convince the customer of the product. Most of it depends on you! The better you get, the more demanding your jobs will be.

Commercials and films for sports models

Whoever presents himself well, masters emotions and facial expressions, has a healthy dose of self-confidence and can even speak, will sooner or later make it into commercials and videos. From a YouTube tutorial for a sports manufacturer, or dietary supplements, to Mode and beauty products, to a commercial. Perhaps not necessarily for a sports manufacturer, but rather for a new smartphone, or an automobile manufacturer! Commercials are, so to speak, the top class for models. Not only are they the most challenging, they are also the place where you as a model can earn the most money. As a rule, there is not only a budget for the production itself, but also for the rights of use in the various countries and continents.

Events and Fitness Fairs

Besides the work on the photo shooting set, for sports and fitness models the work on live events and measuring fitness is also part of it. Here new products, innovative inventions or sports equipment are presented and new features are added. Whether it’s modern technology, such as touch displays, or the fun of sports equipment, every company needs attractive, environmentally friendly models and new products. At fitness fairs and live events, as well as at photo shootings, your presence as a model is just as important. Do you have enough positive charisma? Can you convince the customer, but also the public, of a product? Can you get her excited about something? The job of a model therefore has a lot to do with communication and of course with soft skills, so that you can put yourself in the limelight in smaller conversations and by being present alone. This image transfer from the young model to the new product makes it more attractive for the public to deal with it.In addition to the presentation of new products, but also new methods and technologies, many live events are also about the presentation of sports fashion. Unlike a high fashion fashion show or a classic pret a porter fashion show, sport and fitness models are all about energy! Accordingly, the fashion show is not minimalistic, the models dance, show choreographers, or even sports exercises. Besides, not all models are the same, as you might know it from fashion shows in Paris, or Milan, at sport and fitness models also characters are in demand.

Nutrition and role models

As you can see, image transfer is especially important with sports and fitness models, because they embody a healthy lifestyle, exercise a lot and eat a balanced diet. That’s why sports models not only stand for good looks, but also for lifestyle and quality. So as a sport model you are a role model for many.

Fitness Model over 50

Demographics in many parts of the world are tending towards an ageing population. That’s why sport and fitness models over 50 years old are becoming more and more popular! Whether it is a question of a healthy life or vitality in old age, they represent a completely new population group. Even at the age of 50 you still have big plans, travel the world, maybe start another career direction… Many paths are open to you these days, even at an advanced age. This is why models over 50 years old are becoming more and more present in advertising. The sports and fitness industry is also responding to the trend and is increasingly relying on models aged 40, 50, 60 and 70. Great times, especially for Best Ager Models.

Lean modeling law: Thin models are banned in France

The debate about skinny models is constantly present in modeling agencies. When we drank our first tea in the office this morning, we saw in the mirror that now in France, skinny models are officially banned on catwalks and photo shoots. If you fall below a certain BMI and do not have a medical certificate stating that your state of health is compatible with your profession, you face severe penalties.

The headline of the morning – lean models are banned in France

The Lean Model Act comes into force today. The decisive factor for the new French law is not a certain weight, but the Body Mass Index, BMI for short. The BMI is made up of body weight and height. The resulting number shows whether you are underweight, slightly overweight, normal weight, slightly overweight or directly overweight. The law allows men to have a BMI of 20, women a maximum of 19.

The body mass index (values for adults)

  • under 16 underweight
  • between 16 and 18.5 Slight underweight
  • between 18.5 and 25 normal weight
  • between 25 and 30 Slightly overweight
  • over 30 overweight

Those who do not comply pay high fines; almost 40,000 euros have been spent on it. Many modeling agencies in France complained about this law months ago and founded initiatives against it.

Healthy diet? We reveal

We all know that our diet plays a decisive role in a healthy life. Those who do not eat a healthy diet are exposed to many dangers. Some people can see their unhealthy diet in the form of overweight or bad skin. But even those who can enjoy a slim figure and beautiful skin damage their bodies with an unhealthy diet without seeing it directly.

Healthy Diet: Right Lifestyle & Exercise

We all know that our diet plays a decisive role in a healthy life. Those who do not eat a healthy diet are exposed to many dangers. Some people can see their unhealthy diet in the form of overweight or bad skin. But even those who can enjoy a slim figure and beautiful skin damage their bodies with an unhealthy diet without seeing it directly. This is actually even more dangerous, as these people see no reason to change their diet. But also without obvious characteristics: Those who eat a healthy diet are less often ill and generally have a longer life expectancy. One important reason why you should try to optimize your diet. Before a change in diet, however, the question should first be clarified. What is a “healthy diet” anyway? And is there a golden way or different possibilities?

Right nutrition – How to eat healthy as a model on jobs

What does “healthy eating” mean? – Correct ingredients and metabolism

A healthy diet is a diet tailored to the body. This should give the body all the important ingredients that a healthy body needs. This nutrition can be designed individually for each person. Each person has a different body and with time you learn what is particularly good for your own body. However, there are a few principles that can help you to change your diet positively and get to know your body better. Of course you should not forbid yourself to knit all sugar- or fat-containing treats in the long run. The recipe for success is: enjoy in moderation! So if you integrate “healthy eating” into your daily life every day, you are welcome to sin once in a while at the weekend. This not only stimulates the metabolism, but also protects you from unpredictable ravenous attacks and makes you happy in the end. Who wants to do without nachos in the cinema, an ice-cream sundae in summer or pasta or pizza for the Italian? Delicious food is a pleasure. And this pleasure also contributes to our quality of life. But you should be clear about one thing from the start: Healthy and low-calorie food must be no less pleasurable than “unhealthy” and high-calorie food. Learn to creatively dice and enjoy healthy food! Here are a few basic tips for a healthy diet over the long term.

  1. Eat of course – the freshness of the food is important!

The magic word for a natural, healthy diet is: freshness! This means fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, fresh meat, fresh fish and fresh eggs. Note that you eat more vegetables than fruit throughout the day because fruit contains fructose. The organic products from the supermarket are really recommendable here. They are slightly more expensive, but generally offer the best taste for fruit and vegetables. You should also differentiate between meat. Try to eat lean meat such as chicken, turkey or beef. If possible from the meat counter in the supermarket or directly from the butcher. You can consume eggs in larger quantities than previously assumed. For example, eating 3 eggs a day does not increase your cholesterol level. Proteins and vitamins are very important for your body, which you absorb through protein, meat, fish, fruit and vegetables. Important: When shopping, make sure that you do not put any processed items in the shopping cart (no finished products). Self preparation and cooking is the key to success.

  1. Low carbohydrate diet? Eating (often hated) carbohydrates!

All kinds of women’s magazines keep saying: Do without carbohydrates, do not eat flour and do not eat wheat! This is wrong. For a healthy and balanced diet (also for losing weight and especially when exercising) you should not do without carbohydrates completely. Carbohydrates give you the important energy for the day. Here, too, the magic formula: Enjoy in moderation! At a meal (morning/ noon!) you can have a small portion of carbohydrates as a side dish, in the form of noodles, potatoes, rice or bread. Recommended are about 1 slice/ 60 grams (shredded or pasta in its raw state), approx. 2 – 3 hands full. Important: In the evening you should really do without these carbohydrates and instead consume more protein.

Another tip: wholemeal flour keeps you fuller for longer and contains more fibre, which stimulates your metabolism and digestion. At least with bread you should eat wholemeal products or products with an increased proportion of wholemeal. (Wholemeal toast is not considered a wholemeal product in this sense and does not keep you full for long.) You can also buy wholemeal or natural rice or wholemeal noodles in any supermarket. But when it comes to calorie intake, you can eat light pasta, light rice or potatoes without a guilty conscience. To support your metabolism, you can have a carbohydrate-free day once a week and instead consume more protein.

  1. Use healthy fats for ideal weight

Fat – a product which chronic dieters declare to be the enemy. But that is totally wrong! It only depends on the type of fat. There are saturated and unsaturated fats. Make sure you gain as many unsaturated fatty acids as possible. You should also replace animal fats with vegetable fats if possible. Fats are not only important for the right taste, they also provide us with important nutrients. They are important for absorbing so-called fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K). We can only think if we take in sufficiently important nutrients. Particularly good: olive or sunflower oil, but only cold, e.g. for salads. For cooking you should use e.g. rapeseed oil or coconut oil, these can be heated without hesitation.

  1. Cooking at home or eating in a restaurant?

What does cooking at home mean? Quite simply: Full control! Be it the quality or the simple taste. You know exactly what is contained in your dishes and you can also check the quality and taste of the food beforehand. No hidden sugar (often referred to differently when describing the ingredients on the back of the products, such as dextrose, glucose or fructose) and no chemical additives.

But don’t worry: You don’t have to cancel invitations to the restaurant! Because you can also eat healthy in the restaurant. Salads and vegetables are always the right choice. Once you have checked the quality of the restaurant, for example on the Internet through experience reports and reviews, you can order meat or fish without a guilty conscience. A recommendation: Choose a small restaurant with seasonal cuisine. And if you have to wait 10 minutes longer for your meal, so much the better, because then you can be sure: The food was freshly prepared.

  1. Slimming made easy: water march!

Water is the true secret formula for a healthy and slim body! Water prevents headaches or circulation problems and also helps against excessive hunger. We often confuse the need for water, our thirst, with hunger and try to quench it with unnecessary snacks. In general, you should drink at least 2 litres of water a day. Of course, if you do sports more.

  1. Limo, Cola & Co. – the absolute No-Go’s

Sugary soft drinks are the enemy of a healthy diet and optimal figure. Lemonade, Coke & Co. are the best friend of your belly fat. You better get out of this bad habit forever! (Yes, even if it sounds hard.) Because with these high-calorie drinks you take in unnecessarily many calories and the ingredients are not natural and unhealthy. You’d better save those calories for a tasty main meal.

Light drinks are no alternative either, because the sweeteners do more harm to your body than it appears to do. Light drinks stand for little to no carbohydrates. So far so good. But what many do not know, the sweeteners increase your insulin level. This makes you hungry or hungry and your next food is immediately converted into fat. So you better say goodbye to this unhealthy beverage variant. If you don’t want to do without the sweet calorie bombs completely, then really only in moderation, as an exception on weekends. Alcohol should also be an exception on weekends, i.e. no beer after work and no glass of wine with dinner. (At least not regularly.)

You should also be careful with fruit juices, as they contain a lot of fructose. Nevertheless, these juices are healthy, natural and rich in vitamins, so no No-Go, but at most enjoy one glass a day. (Instead of fruit, not extra.)

    1. Calories count? Get to know and love the pleasure!

Try to enjoy your food in peace! This means: take time for your meal and eat slowly. The more you chew a bite, the faster you can digest the food you eat. And you will quickly notice the difference in taste: If you let your food “melt in your mouth”, then the taste can fully unfold and you really perceive it. An additional possibility to mutate into an absolute gourmet. And don’t let TV, smartphone or tablet distract you during your meal. Concentrate on your food, look at it while you enjoy it. This way your brain remembers your food intake and you feel less hungry during the day, your stomach will start growling again late and thus you generally eat less.

A tip: Food is a culture that people enjoy most in the company of friends. Meet your friends for dinner at home, cook together, set the table (creates a cosy atmosphere) and celebrate the meal together. Eating together means shared enjoyment and that makes you happy.

Movement & Sports: Important for the feel-good factor & health

Everyday exercise and regular exercise are important to keep the body and mind fit. Especially in everyday working life, an appropriate exercise can provide a good balance. No time is no excuse! Just use your bike instead of driving or get off the train two stops before your destination and walk the rest. Avoid elevators, take the stairs, or carry your groceries home with your arms bent and your back straight. All this supports your muscles and your fitness and can be easily integrated into everyday life.
Furthermore, if possible, you should exercise two to three times a week and “get out of breath”. Half an hour of jogging in the park, yoga at home according to instructions (e.g. with a YouTube video or DVD), or one hour of strength and endurance training in the gym can tighten your body and improve your health in the long run. In the foreseeable future you will look more radiant and do your body something good. By old age at the latest, he’ll thank you.

A healthy lifestyle in the long term

Be it nutrition or your fitness: Set realistic goals and act in small steps, so you will feel a success after a short time! This is very important for your motivation. If you set your goals too high too quickly, frustration will soon arise. Your body can’t change overnight and that’s not the goal. Your goal is: A HEALTHY LONG-TERM Lifestyle! Start small and grow steadily. Your body is your house. You can’t get out of this one or exchange it. Therefore treat him lovingly and take care of him, this will also inspire your spirit.
