Are You Ready for Sportswear Modelling?

Published: 23rd Mar 2020

Every year fashion trends are always being forecasted and set to dominate each season.

And with the big boom of sportswear fashion making a hit on the scene in recent years, plenty of retailers have been indulging in marketing activewear apparel for children, teenagers, men and women. 

Sportswear models are donning the arena with this year’s cool, comfy, robust and versatile range of activewear which can be found at a retailer near you, or online. Must-have styles are also available in additional sizes such as curve and plus-size too opening the market further.

The right mindset and apparel theory

If you’re a gym bunny or exercise at home bod, you may want to dress the part so you can kick-start your active journey and be on your way to a healthy lifestyle. Wearing the appropriate apparel for your fitness activity will encourage you to make a start and achieve those fitness goals you may have set yourself for the new year. 

So, if you’re a newbie or a dedicated lover of exercise, we’re sure you’ll love what’s on the shelves for activewear clothing. 

Sportswear is smart to wear

Extra lengths have gone into sportswear being intelligently constructed. You’ve got sweat-wicking technology which is breathable to keep you cool; tight-fitting silhouettes that contour your body, defying restrictiveness; waterproof and light wear garments and much more on the market. What’s not to love?

Base layers, leggings, tights, hoodies and tracksuits are just a few of the categories you can find available in the activewear section online, print or in-store. 

Keep-fit buffs & gymgoers venturing into modelling

A few questions for our readers – Do you love exercising? Does the camera love you? If the answers are yes, maybe you’re thinking about sporting your look as a fitness model. You don’t need to have a six-pack and ripped muscles to be the face of a fitness marketing campaign. If you’re toned and in shape, you can go all the way to becoming a model in this lucrative field. 

Does this sound like you? 

Alongside the toned body – remember, it isn’t in an extreme form – you’ll need to have a great smile, clear skin and lovely hair too. If you tick all the boxes, you should think about signing up with a modelling agency
