There are a lot of people interested in bodybuilding and fitness modeling/competition who want to find out everything they could to get educated on these careers. When going through the internet, typing in the keyword fitness modeling on the browser already shows hundreds of sites that are promotional and educational in nature.

The main difference between fashion modeling and fitness modeling is that fashion modeling can kill because of misguided assumptions that no one can be too thin. What a world of difference.

When first reading that article, it was quite confusing what the writer was saying, but in the end, the writer said that doing a ‘body proud’ means that you take care of your body and not abuse it. Being a fitness model made the body proud because the model sacrificed all the ‘junk’ to take a chance on life.
