Fashion models are regarded as the ideal specimen of male and female beauty. Not everyone is born with the right genes thus ensuring that “aspirational look” is achievable, better yet, sustainable. In the fashion modeling industry, it important that models not only present themselves well and project a positive self-image, but they must also take care of their bodies, as its their bodies for the most part that is their main selling tool.
To this effect, Organizers of the 2013 TCI Top Model Contest& Fashion Extravaganza coordinated with John Wright, Proprietor of Wrighfully Fit Fitness Center to talk with the youths preparing for the upcoming event to host a workshop on Fitness and Healthy Eating.
Hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA), John’s experience in the health and fitness industry spans well over 25 years. As a former fitness model turned celebrity fitness trainer and certified by the international sports science Association, Mr Wright has worked with and trained individuals from various backgrounds and professions – to include politicians to professional athletes and celebrities!
Possessing a wealth of knowledge on both sides of the spectrum, John reminded them that the fashion industry is one where people expect perfection at all costs. “Fashion modeling takes dedication and a high level of commitment. You are competing with the best of the best for the same job. As individuals, we are all different, with different heights and body types; it is our personalities and physiques that helps set us apart from others we are competing with,” said the 2008 Antilles Fitness and Bodybuilding ‘Men’s Light Heavy weight division’, ‘The Masters’, ‘Men over 40’ division and the ‘Men’s Overall’ body building competition winner.

The fitness expert went on to make mention of various exercises that the attendees can do to stay fit and lean. This, along with what types of foods they should be eating or not eating to maintain a healthy model body. “As a model, you must make time to workout, this is imperative in your chosen profession. This is the willing part, and you have to want it more than anything else, Mr Wright admonished.
