Northcoast Championships Fitness Model Search

Brought to you by

To all aspiring models…..The Northcoast Championships Fitness Model Search is looking for females and males to bring a total package on stage. You will be judged on an athletic, symmetrical, fit physique. We are not looking for bulky muscle or extreme definition. We are looking for nice shape and symmetry with reasonable muscle tone. You must also display a marketable appearance, personality, poise, and confidence. The judges will also consider overall physical appearance and grooming, including complexion, skin tone, style of hair, make-up, as well as overall presentation on stage.
