APPENDIX 2:
HOW TO ASSESS WOMEN’S FIT-MODEL QUARTER TURNS

The assessment should take the whole physique into account. The assessment,
beginning with a general impression of the physique, should take into consideration
the hair, make-up and facial beauty; the overall body shape and body lines; the
presentation of a balanced, proportionally and symmetrically developed, complete
physique; the condition of the skin and the skin tone; and the athlete’s ability to
present herself with confidence, poise and grace.
Since muscularity development and muscle quality is not assessed, the judges should
favor competitors with a harmonious, proportional, classic female physique, good
posture, correct anatomical structure (including body framework, correct spinal
curves, limbs and trunk in good proportion, straight legs, not bandy or knock kneed).
Vertical proportions (legs to upper body length) and horizontal proportions
(hips and waist to shoulder width) are ones of the key factors.
The body parts should have a nice and firm appearance with a decreased amount
of body fat. The physique should neither be excessively muscular nor excessively
lean. Physiques that are considered too muscular, too hard, too dry or too lean
must be marked down. The assessment should also take into consideration the tightness and tone of the
skin. The skin tone should be smooth and healthy in appearance, and without cellulite.

The hair and makeup should complement the “Total Package” presented by the athlete.
The judge’s assessment of the athlete’s physique should include the athlete’s
entire presentation, from the moment she walks onstage until the moment she
walks offstage. At all times, the Fit-Model competitor must be viewed with the
emphasis on a “healthy and balanced” physique, in an attractively presented, impressive “Total Package”.

APPENDIX 3:
HOW TO PERFORM AND ASSESS T- WALKING
T-walking is performed in the following manner:
– The competitor will walk to the center of the stage, will stop and perform front
stance.
– The competitor will then turn to her right and walk 3 steps towards the side of
the stage, will stop and perform front and back stance.
– The competitor will then turn to her right, walk 6 steps to the other side of the
stage, will stop and perform front and back stance.
The competitor will then walk to the line-up in the rear part of the stage.

The judges will be assessing each competitor on how well they display their
physique in move. Competitors shall be assessed on whether or not they carry
themselves in a graceful manner while walking to and along the stage. The pace,
the elegance of moves, gestures, “showmanship”, personality, charisma, stage
presence and charm, as well as a natural rhythm should play a part in the final placing
of each competitor.
