Hi, Im a fist time competitor and would love some feedback. I have never seen a Ms. Fitness competition so Im a bit in the dark about the speeches. What do they talk about, do they use note cards, and what is the min/max length? Thanks!
The speech is all about your fitness philosophy, no more than 30 seconds in length. You are judged not only on content but the way you deliver your speech is important as well. Speak clearly into the microphone and at all costs avoid saying um's,ah's,licking lips fidgeting etc.. Evening gown round is judged also on your poise, posture, elegance and physical beauty. Go to rules and regulations and also contest information at Ms. Fitness .com. I also would suggest purchasing a Ms. Fitness Video that has the evening gown round recorded on it. ( Not all of the videos have the evening gown & speech but they are labeled.) You need to appear confident in your whole presentation from the walk to the speech. Note cards, only use those for practice. Good Luck
