Are you a male or female bodybuilder, physique, classic physique, figure, wellness, fitness model, or bikini competitor thinking about doing a competition
But You Struggle With Executing The Poses For Your Category Effectively and want to learn the specific things you can do to improve?
If you're like most people trying to learn how to pose effectively, you've searched for random posing tutorials online...

You've gone to in-person posing workshops...

And mayyybe, you've stalked instagram photos and videos trying to mimic what you see others doing...

There's just one problem with doing all of those things.

If you take this approach...
You will never even come close to optimizing your posing and maximizing your effectiveness on stage.
There are three things that make the biggest difference when it comes to actually learning how to pose effectively, regardless of the federation in which you compete.
1. UNDERSTANDING WHAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY BEING JUDGED ON. What I've learned over the years is when clients understand the reason behind each of their poses, their purpose, the goal from head to toe, and don't just model after what they see in videos, they start to connect with the poses totally differently than just winging it from a tutorial they found online.  If you don't know what you are being scored on, and why you are making the shapes you are making, how will you ever know if you are posing effectively?

I recently asked a group of new clients to tell me what they believe they are being judged on in their competition.  And this was a group of men and women in all federations and divisions.

You know what they said?

They really didn’t know.  

Once I taught them the reason behind the poses and the goals of each and every one of them, no one looked at posing the same again... and their posing skills improved dramatically.

2. BUILDING A PROPER POSING FOUNDATION FROM THE START SO YOU DON'T DEVELOP BAD HABITS THAT ARE TOUGH TO BREAK.  Posing is creating shapes with your body. Each of these shapes require you to twist, contort, and position your entire body in a specific way for the judges to compare you with others on stage. 

You need to understand the goal of every shape and how to make them look their best on your specific body. 

What looks good on someone else will not necessarily look good on you.  

You also need to do this without a mirror, since there are no mirrors on stage. 

I break this sequence down for every one of my competitors from the start so that within no time their poses become like second nature to them. 

3. ACCOUNTABILITY. Let's face it. Striking a pose in front of the mirror once in a while for a selfie isn't going to translate into looking your best on stage.  You need legit posing practice.  It's your PRACTICE that will GUARANTEE your PREPAREDNESS. Posing on your own can become monotonous so find ways to hold yourself accountable so you can do it regularly.

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 practicing their posing!  

And accountability was absolutely critical for each and every one of them to ensure they invested enough time into practicing their posing.
Over My 2+ Decades of Competing, Coaching, and 
Judging in ALL Federations and Divisions...
I have developed a very unique, unparalleled set of skills and experience that you simply CANNOT get anywhere else. 

My teaching methods are educational and strategic.

My methods will take all the guess work of learning how to pose correctly from the beginning. 

And my methods will help you feel confident you are practicing the right things and not wondering where to even start. 

You will also avoid common mistakes that are 100% guaranteed to hold you back from earning the score you want and deserve.
When I first started competing as a bodybuilder 20+ years ago...
There was no such thing as posing tutorials, workshops, or posing coaches
Annnnnd, as a bodybuilder, you are required to execute A LOT of different poses.  You are also required to perform a posing routine that is choreographed to music.  In this routine you display your best features and show off your personality to the audience and judges.  

I remember being more stressed out about the posing routine to music than I was with the nutrition and exercise part of competition prep.  

Because of this, I spent every day dissecting each and every pose and working on mastering the execution of every one of them.  My hard work paid off and I would consistently win best poser awards at all of my shows.

Then in 2004 I switched to the figure division and l remember thinking there are much less poses than in bodybuilding, but now I was stressing about having to do them balancing in heels, and also having to do a fancy walk on stage smiling like I'm having the time of my life.  My demeanor is much more serious so this was a challenge for me to break out from at first.

So once again I dissected every component of posing and presentation and worked on mastering the poses, mastering how to walk and pose in high heels, and choreographing every component of my stage presence.  My hard work paid off again and, over the years, I earned three pro cards in three different federations.

Then about a decade into my career, I bought a fitness facility and started hosting group posing classes. This was still ten years ago from today so there wasn't the workshops, posing coaches, or online tutorials at this time either. 

My unique background having competed in 6 federations, and mastering the posing skills in all of them, and now judging competitions as well, meant that I had a unique set of skills that allowed me to invite competitors, both men and women, to come learn how to pose from me no matter what federation they planned to compete.  

I can literally switch between teaching the posing requirements of all the federations in an instant.  

People kept coming back to learn how to pose for different federations, and some would come back consistently to continue making improvements from show to show.  I had people travel four hours one way to come master their posing and presentation skills.  Especially when they were preparing for their first show and had never stepped on stage before in their life.

The bodybuilding division is the core division, think of it like the parent division, of the entire sport. Every division today is a spin off of bodybuilding.  Having started as a bodybuilder allowed me to see things in people's posing and stage presence in every category of the sport that they would not have been able to see on their own without my experience. The bodybuilding category is hyper specific and it taught me to look at each and every part of the body with extreme detail.

So I was now looking at each and every one of my clients with extreme detail.  I knew exactly what areas of their body they needed to accentuate. I also knew the areas they needed to draw less attention to as well.  And I understood the psychology of what they are feeling, so I knew how to draw them out of their shell like I had to do for myself.

Throughout the years, I helped competitors who struggled with feeling overall clumsy when executing their poses go from awkward to effortless on stage.

I helped competitors go from walking like a linebacker in heels to commanding the stage like a professional. 

And I helped competitors who are naturally shy or super serious go from forgettable or "meh" to absolute stand outs on stage.

On the flip side, I have been judging for the past 10 years and I have seen countless competitors get marked down and miss out on higher placements because they lacked the posing skills to make them more competitive.  

They didn't understand the fundamentals of posing.

They didn't understand what they were being judged on so the could be more competitive.

And, worse, they lacked confidence on stage.

After over two decades in the sport of bodybuilding, I know how easily these things can be avoided with the proper education.

I also know, up until now, there hasn't been a resource out there teaching these things so people have been left to guess and count on posing tutorials that make it all look easy, when in reality, learning how to pose effectively is far from easy.

What People Are Saying...
#FirstShowNeverKnow
JAMIE SCARLETT 
PRO FIGURE
" 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!
BRET CATENO
PHYSIQUE
“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.”
TARA CHAPELL 
BIKINI AND FIGURE
" 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! "
AMY COURNOYER
BIKINI AND FIGURE
" 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. " 
LAURENT VITRAC
CLASSIC PHYSIQUE
" 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. "
AMY POLLARD
PRO BODYBUILDER, PHYSIQUE, AND FIGURE
" 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. "
ALICIA C.
BIKINI COMPETITOR
" 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. " 
COURTNEY M.
BIKINI & MODEL
" 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. "
JEN E.
MASTERS BIKINI
" 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! "
