I decided to shuck my science geek persona, and write on a topic I know will be helpful to thousands of would be and want to be fitness models.
As well a known “hard core” science-based no BS writer, why I am writing what some will perceive as a “fluff” article?

You have been in the business a long time, surly you of all people should know.” I get this from newbies, and I get this from women that have been at it a while but have been unable to “break in” effectively.
The fact is, I have been in the fitness, health, and bodybuilding biz a long time, and though I am known as a science and nutrition based “guru” type, I have trained many a fitness athlete, and judged fitness and figure/bikini shows for the NPC, Fitness America, Fitness USA, and other federations as well as given marketing and business advice to all sorts of athletes, including fitness models. So, it’s not as far fetched as it might seem that I am going to use this space to cover a nonscientific topic, which is, how one goes about being a fitness model.
