Holla at a fitness model. It’s going to be a hot boy summer.
What is Fitness Modeling?
Fitness modeling is an industry for professionals who commit to being physically fit. In an article “How to Get Started as a Fitness Model” by Vanessa Helmer she notes that these models needs to be toned but doesn’t have to be extremely muscular(the ones that look like the Incredible Hulk). These persons follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
We all know that in order to stay fit you must eat right. One important part of your diet should be protein. Protein is what helps build the muscles. This is something my martial arts instructor taught me. Just like me used to weigh about 130 lbs. However, he was able to build muscle mass through a high quality protein diet. This diet includes egg whites, red meat, protein supplements, and energy drinks like Ensure.
If you’re trying to lose weight cut back on calories. Be careful not to eat too much sugary, fatty foods. This includes consuming alcohol. Yes, we can go out for unlimited mimosas and heavy brunch from time to time. But like with anything else fatty food and alcohol intake should be done in moderation.
Activity and Exercise
Exercise is another big part of being fit. There are three main types of exercises: aerobics, yoga, and body building.
Think of aerobics as the introduction to your fitness journey. When I used to run track my team mates did a lot of these exercises. This including running, jumping rope, and climbing stairs(oh, I hated doing that). A good recommendation for people who is starting to exercise is to walk. You can start off gradual walking about 3-4 times a week for a stroll. Once you feel more comfortable you can walk more times a week at longer intervals.
While aerobics helps build muscles yoga stretches the muscles. I’ve done yoga before and it’s actually fun. It helps you become more flexible and keeps your muscles tight and fit. Definitely a plus, in and out the bedroom.
Body building is another core step to getting fit. This includes pushups, deadlifts, weight lifting, and curls. My martial arts instructor and other fitness gurus have recommended that doing exercises without machines can drastically increase your internal strength and build muscle. Weight lifting helps to build external strength.
Places to exercise
There are several places that you can exercise. The infamous place: the GYM. Most people get scared when they hear that word. If you’re out of shape(I’m trying to be politically correct) you may get self-conscious seeing fit people working out. Trust me, they may have been in the same position as you or worse. At the gym you can enroll in exercise classes, work out on your own, or meet with a personal training. I normally exercise at my karate dojo which is a great space.
If you don’t feel comfortable going to the gym or just unable to go then another option is exercising at home. At home you can use your own machines, don’t have to deal with crowds, and can use all the space you want.

There are plenty ways to get fit. If you need some pointers these are some of the fitness models that you should follow:

You know what’s sexy? Authenticity. Those who have the strength and courage to be true to themselves – To be who they really are. Those who are honest, vulnerable, unique, intimate, bold and real. Those who are bold enough to share a piece of themselves. The artists, the musicians, the authors, the poets, the creators, the rebels, the givers and the lovers of the world. Those who approach life with sincerity, openness and veracity. Those who send a daring and dazzling message of “I am who I am” and in doing so, give others the permission to do the same. So, here’s to the authentic souls who do not stand back from revealing their true selves. Keep shining, Gorgeous souls. Your authenticity is sexy. 💪🏽
