What is Ms Fit Body?:
Fit Body judges are looking for a more athletic physique, but without the muscle mass of the BodyBuilding Division, such as overly ripped or vascular shoulders or arms.
Athletes wear two-piece figure suit; thongs or T-back bottoms are not allowed. The suit may be embellished with rhinestones, sparkles, or sequins for added effect. High-heeled shoes are required. Jewelry and body piecing is allowed, but must not be offensive or obscure the physique.
Scoring is based on two (2) rounds:
- Symmetry is judged on balanced proportions; upper and lower body should not overpower the other, and no one body part should overpower the rest of the physique.
- Muscle Tone will focus on the overall conditioning of the body, not overly muscular, too striated, or hard looking. Competitors should not appear to be at the same physical level of a Bodybuilding competitor.
Two-piece Figure suit: The two-piece suit must be in good taste; thongs or T-back bottoms are not allowed. The suit may be adorned with rhinestones, sparkles, sequins, etc. for added effect.
High-heeled shoes are required.
Jewelry is permitted; Body jewelry (piercing) is allowed, so long as it is not offensive. Other jewelry (earrings, necklace, bracelets) may be worn, but should not obscure the physique or be in poor taste.
Judging Rounds (2):
ROUND 1 - SYMMETRY:
competitors will perform the mandatory quarter turns; judges will compare competitors against others in the same class. Judges will be looking at balance and proportion (e.g., between upper and lower body). Fit Body competitors should be symmetrically balanced; upper or lower body should not overpower the other; no one-body part should overpower the rest of the physique.
ROUND 2 - MUSCLE TONE – The key is to come in Conditioned and Not overly muscular, too striated or hard looking. Too much overall muscle mass or appearing to be at the same physical level of a bodybuilding competitor is Not acceptable. Example: Shoulders/Arms ripped and too vascular. Some separation is required to display the different muscle groups and proper execution of the (5) Mandatory poses is essential. Note: Points will be deducted if you clinch your fist while executing the below mandatory poses.
Both rounds will be scored equally to come up with the final placement.

Lats spread, arms in semi-relaxed position at sides. • Side Pose – Feet offset slightly (foot of choice either with toes shifted forward by three inches or back by three inches; feet still must be beside one another to some extent). Hips toward the side of the stage, face toward side of the stage. Upper body turned toward the judge no more than 30 degrees. • Rear Pose (facing curtain) – Heels together, toes facing the curtain.

One leg should be shifted back to tighten the calf. • Side Triceps (side of choice) – Arm facing the judges should be extended straight down at the side. The rear arm should be bent with that hand on the hip. (The hands are not clutched behind the back.) One leg should be shifted back to tighten the calf. • Rear Double-Biceps (open handed) – One leg shifted toward the side, with the calf tightened. Both arms are lifted up in double-biceps pose.

This is not a model walk or a routine. The Master of Ceremonies will announce your name at which time you will go directly to the center stage and start your poses. You will execute the (5) mandatory poses one time and then exit the stage. Note: The routine does not count towards your placement. We want to give every athlete equal opportunity to present their physique on stage.
