So what exactly IS A Weekly Group Virtual Posing Practice Session?

Each week, we will practice as a group on Zoom:

  • All the mandatory poses for your category (ALL classes): You choose the class for your applicable category. All federations will be covered.
  • ​Building posing endurance (ALL classes): We will practice holding poses for extended periods of time like you will be required to do on stage. 
  • Moving in and out of your poses (ALL classes) (and how to make it effortless): i.e. posing transitions
  • Posing and Stage Presence Strategy (Wednesdays only) (learn how to be a posing critic. I guarantee you will never look at posing or performing the same)
  • ​Fundamental Drills (Wednesdays only) to help you develop and maintain better overall movement patterns, balance, posture, and stability.
  • BONUS (Wednesdays only): For divisions with high heels; you will learn some of my signature techniques on how to look good walking in them. 
  • *NEW CLASS* ​Posing Mechanics (Sundays only); For new people just learning how to pose (i.e. Level 1) and for veteran posers (i.e. Level 2 and 3) who want additional general posing practice and critiques by me every week. I will break down the poses in detail at every class (the poses I cover will depend on who shows up). Submit your posing concerns/questions before every class to be considered in the the class discussion. And a good solid (structured) posing practice session in as well in my own signature style (i.e not boring, lol) that models the show day experience.
In my 20 years of experience, I have found that when preparing for a fitness or bodybuilding show, people underestimate five major things:

1. You are not just posing, you are performing for an audience.

2. How much time it really takes to become good at posing and stage performance (and that it should be done year-round, and not an after thought). 

3. Posing and performing require specific skill development beyond just the literal mechanics of poses. These fundamental skills aren't taught by anyone else (how do I know? Because I created them).

4. Without guidance you are likely to practice the wrong things, and won't know what to do about it; and,

5. How important it is to practice under pressure to be fully prepared on show day. 

In bodybuilding federations, the first thing the judges evaluate is how proportioned and balanced your physique is (or how disproportioned your are, if you are in the Wellness category).  The head judge will spin you around from front to back with either a series of quarter turns or half turns to evaluate your structure.  

If you are in the women's physique, classic physique, or the bodybuilding divisions, you will also have a series of muscularity poses to do.  

It is up to you to know how to execute each and every pose in a way that showcases your physique its best.

These poses are not normal shapes and positions that we "normally" do. In fact, some require a tremendous amount of mind body connection, mobility, stability, balance, and flexibility to really do them well. 

Watching a posing tutorial of someone who poses effortlessly and then trying to do the poses yourself are two different things, amIright?  Especially if you lack the mind body connection, stability, balance, etc. that is needed to do them.

It's like watching a gymnast on a balance beam and then thinking you are going to hop up on that beam and be capable of doing the same thing. Like all of a sudden you've figured out the proper techniques, posture, balance, and stability on how to perform a balance beam routine in those 60 seconds you spent watching the video (you know, the skills they spent a lifetime learning and practicing). Not likely.

Most people underestimate the amount of fundamental skills you need to learn and practice regularly in order to become great at posing and stage presence.  And how regularly these skills need to be practiced (you will get rusty really fast).

I have worked with HUNDREDS of clients – both men and women and many have become champions. Do you know what stands out about the ones that won shows and became professionals in the sport?  

...it's the amount of time they spent doing the things that will help them master their posing skills!  

And my signature fundamental skill practice will provide you the exact things you need to do to become not good, but really awesome, at posing and stage presence. 

I tackle mind body connection, mobility, flexibility, stability, in every Wednesday class every week (i.e. Posing Fundamentals). I also have a class on Sundays where I provide the exact step-by-step proper execution of all poses (i.e Posing Mechanics).  Come to one, or sign up for both!

Plus, with my kind of accountability, if I see something, I say something. So while you are practicing with me every week, I will suggest posing corrections while we are live. Many people are surprised how I see everything despite it being a group environment.  You will not feel left out.

So if you want to learn and practice the exact skills that will help your posing and stage presence go from "meh" to awesome ...aaaaand have someone *ahem, ME* hold you accountable every week so you are better prepared for show day, then join my weekly posing classes!

" I received my WNBF Pro Card in figure after working with Michele. She helped me fine tune my posing and presentation style, which made all the difference in the world on stage. If you are looking to take your training to the next level, I highly recommend Michele!
“Michele’s knowledge and instruction flows very naturally. I was frequently impressed by her level of detail and the ease in which she manipulated my position to bring out my best look. I’ve worked with great coaches and Michele is exceptional. Any federation... any division, she will guide you to the proper fit and help you to look your best. Do yourself a favor if you’re considering a show and reach out to her asap.”
" Michele Welcome is an incredibly talented posing coach, and working with her was a complete game-changer for me. She is truly a professional and an expert in her field. I would highly recommend using Michele as a posing coach to anyone preparing for a show! "
" Self doubt and fear of failure have been my demons for years. My work with Michele helped me step out of this mindset and into a place where I learned to compete for me. Michele has shown me how to focus on producing the best version of myself and how to hit the stage leading with pride. " 
" Michele really teaches you about how posing should be done. It's not just get on stage and flex, it's about confidence, stage presence and finding the angles and movements to really highlight that physique! No one shows you how and teaches you how better. Michele came highly recommended to me and she comes highly recommended from me so much I send my own clients to her for posing. "
" Beyond her phenomenal expert knowledge, she was sincerely invested in my success. Her excellent advice, warm smile and encouraging words, along with a hug out the door was what I looked forward to every week to keep me on my focused path. She made sure I never stopped believing in myself, because she believed in me. "
" By nature, I am an extremely shy person and do not like to be the center of attention. Michele helped me gain the confidence I needed to get on stage. Michele helped me pose in ways that best suited my physique. She is extremely supportive and will help guide you every step of the way. There is no one I’d rather work with to prepare for stage ready posing. " 
" The minute I started working with Michele I knew that her patience and attention to detail were just what I needed to learn a new set of poses and to feel confident in my routine! Michele also gave me phenomenal workouts to help build my back and to build coordination and muscle memory for flaring my lats. I am certain that the work I did with Michele translated to more confidence on the stage and as a competitor. "
" At the age of 41, I decided that I wanted to compete in bikini.  This was so far out of my comfort zone, I barely knew where to start. I had never done anything even remotely close to this. Michele taught me how to pose with class and grace, she taught me how to show off my best self, she choreographed a theme wear routine for me, AND she taught me how to flare my lats!!  (We dubbed her "The Lat Whisperer"). I never could have done it without Michele! "
