Wilhelmina’s Hot Body Model Finalist Day of Fun….
I somehow missed my opportunity to enter Wilhelmina’s Hot Body Model contest. Two grand prize winners -one male and one female- will get a five year contract with Wilhelmina among other fun prizes. There’s always, next year right?
But this year, I joined the ten (five men and women) finalists as they began their round of activities. The finalists were treated to lunch at Energy Kitchen and then were scheduled for a work out session as Gold’s Gym and a host of other activities. I am lazy and don’t work out so I bowed out of the gym portion and joined them for lunch. As I sat there with my tuna sandwich and smoothie in hand and noticed the contests with salads and water, I realized that I probably don’t have what it takes to compete with them. SIGH.
Undeterred, I talked to New Jersey native and finalist Gail Kasper about her work routine and how I can get a great body(she has the best legs) like hers on a budget. She offered some fun tips that even a lazy person like me can easily do; 1) Plan your work out routine ahead of time 2) If you can’t afford the gym go for walks 3) invest in kettles and a water ball 4) work on full body resistance exercises such as squats and lounges.
See that’s easy and painless. Now, while I go plan my workout routine, I leave you with the list of prizes for the finalist and grand prize winners.
The semi-finalists were selected after a nationwide search in several states and online submission were reviewed and voted by the public and the winners of the grand prize will be announced later today at a ceremony held by Wilhelmina.
