WELLNESS POSING CRITERIA
The wellness category focuses on a generally symmetrical build, however, the glutes, hips, hamstrings, quads, and calves will have a slightly more developed look as compared to the upper body. The upper body should still be developed, and conditioning should be to the point where the competitor is toned, but not to the point where muscle striations/vascularity is evident.
ATTIRE: Two-piece suits with clear high-heeled shoes are required for all rounds of wellness. Suits can be of any color, and may be decorated with crystals. Suits should not be crisscrossed, or attached to the bottoms by any means.
Each class is brought out to front center stage as a group and guided through quarter turns to display their physique from all sides.
Front Pose: Both feet should be on the front line of the stage. Competitors will face the front and place one hand on their hip. The other arm will hang down relaxed with the same side leg slightly extended to the side. Competitors cannot lift one arm out to the side to form a "tea cup" pose that resembles bikini.
Side Pose: Competitors will stand facing the side of the stage with a slight twist to face the judges. The leg facing the judges will remain straight, with that side arm down to their side, in a relaxed manner. The leg away from the judges should have a slight bend to it, and their hand on that side should be on their hip. Competitors cannot lift one arm out to the side to form a "tea cup" pose that resembles bikini.
Back Pose: Competitors will face the rear with feet slightly apart, and their lower back arched to show their glutes. Hands should be placed on the front thighs. Excessive leaning is not permitted. Competitors cannot lift one arm out to the side to form a "tea cup" pose that resembles bikini.
