There are so many amazing female fitness models in this industry that are doing amazing things and inspiring women all over the world. There are so many things that typify what a top fitness model in the world is. I am here to celebrate the top 6 female fitness models in the world that are movers and shakers in the industry globally. They inspiration so many women all over the world in what they do. To be on this list you have to have attained a minimum of ten fitness covers in your career and performed at an exceptional superstar level of body of work globally for at least a minimum of 2 years. This list has nothing to do with my favorite picks but these are the women that most people believe are the top six current female fitness models in the world and have been very consistent over the past 2 years and more.
This list has nothing to do with fitness competition history it is about what they’ve done in the industry as a global fitness personality because of their name and with nobody’s help. It is not just about how many covers each person has landed although it does play a factor it is about the following things: covers, endorsement contracts, global internet exposure, social network exposure and social numbers, paid international appearances, global influence meaning how many people they’ve reached and educated through fitness articles via magazines and the internet, etc.
All of these incredible women are not just global fitness models they are global fitness personalities and they are the best of the best in the world. You see these incredible women gracing multiple covers every year all over the world and they motivate so many women to get off the couch and work out. All of these women are honestly triple threat fitness personalities which mean they can speak very well, write very well and model very well and their resume clearly proves that.
This list is in no particular order who is better because they all are great and all are the best in the world in the fitness industry. Anyway with no further due let’s talk about who the top six female fitness models in the world and why they are:
Alicia Marie– You can’t talk about the fitness industry without mentioning Alicia Marie. She has landed over 30 fitness covers over the past 7 years in her career and she has been on the cover of Oxygen ten times which is unbelievable and astronomical period for any person but to be an African-American woman to have landed on the cover of Oxygen fitness magazine that many times is absolutely ground-breaking particularly in an industry where it is very difficult for ethnic fitness models to succeed. Her Oxygen covers are some of the bestselling covers ever and she has also been on the cover of Fitness RX fitness magazine more than any female fitness model in the fitness industry as well as Oxygen magazine. The amount of domestic fitness covers that she has landed as an African-American female fitness model is so remarkable and she honestly has made it possible for people of color to believe that they too can land on a fitness cover and have success in the fitness industry.
She is sponsored by BSN and she is one of the biggest global fitness icons and living legends in the fitness industry. She has been one of the published female fitness models in the world over the past 7 years. She has written many fitness articles for Oxygen and many other fitness magazines all over the world for so many years and is also an author. I’ve had people call me the Jackie Robinson of the fitness industry because they believe I’ve opened doors for other male black fitness models and I am here to correct everybody and say that is absolutely false. Alicia Marie is honestly the Jackie Robinson of the fitness industry and she has opened doors for many black fitness models in the fitness industry including myself because of the success she has attained in the fitness industry and the color barriers she has broken as an African-American fitness model. She has been voted on many different fitness sites the number one fitness model in the world in previous years. Her resume is a lot longer than this but this is just a small summarization of what she has accomplished in the fitness industry globally. If you call Alicia Marie the number one fitness model in the world not many people would argue that claim.

Jennifer Nicole Lee- Whether you like her or you don’t like her you have to respect her for what she has done in the fitness industry globally. You can’t not talk about the fitness industry without mentioning JNL as she is one of the biggest fitness icons ever in the fitness industry and still continues to land multiple fitness covers every year globally. She proved herself as one of the best fitness spokes models ever by selling over 7 million units for the Ab Circle Pro as its spokes model. That infomercial has been featured in over 130 countries globally on TV in fact I even saw it when I was in Australia last year on TV when I made an appearance there and I was honestly amazed by that.
Her 70 pound weight loss story has been featured on many national talk shows such as Oprah, Inside Edition, CBS Early Morning Show and many others TV shows. She has landed over 30 fitness covers since 2005 and is always landing multiple fitness covers a year globally. If being most the successful female fitness model is based solely on how much money you’ve made in the fitness industry then she clearly wins that vote. She is living fitness icon and nobody can ever take away that accolade or achievement away from her. She is a sponsored athlete by BSN and she has other endorsement contracts with other companies. She is her own business and her own company! She epitomizes how you should conduct yourself as a business when being a fitness model but she is not a fitness model as she is a fitness global personality.

Natalia Muntean– She is one of the most marketable female fitness models in the industry and one of the very few female fitness models that can cross over and shoot fashion and it is clearly evident by her portfolio as she did fashion modeling for many years before she ever entered in the fitness industry in 2008. In 2010 she landed more then 11 fitness covers in one year which was more then any female fitnes model that year and was arguably the most published female fitness model in 2010. She is a fitness expert columnist for more than seven different magazines globally which I believe is more than any female fitness model in the industry as a writer/columnist. Over the past 2 years she has landed more than 17 covers which is absolutely incredible.
If you take her first 2 and half years in the fitness industry the success she has attained within that timeframe is as comparable to any female fitness model that has ever stepped foot in this fitness industry within their first 2 and half year time-frame. In fact I don’t believe there is any female fitness model that has attained that many covers in their very first 2 years in the fitness industry. Her articles are published in so many different countries that they are actually translated into different languages which is mindboggling.
She is everywhere globally within the fitness magazines globally in terms of features, articles and covers. She made history in 2011 by signing one of the biggest supplement contracts ever for a fitness model with Muscle-Pharm and arguably the biggest for a female fitness model. Her landing that type of contract proves that she is one of the top six female fitness models in the world and she also holds other endorsement contracts with other companies. She is one of the very few female fitness models that is flown out constantly for paid international appearances because of her name. Nobody made Natalia Muntean she is self-made and did it by herself and she belongs on the top six female fitness models/personalities in the world and on any list.

Kim Dolan Leto– What can you say about Kim Dolan Leto she is the comeback queen who had great success in the fitness industry for many years as a cover model but she took time off because she had a child and decided to make a comeback in the fitness industry recently. Well that comeback has turned into being the MVP of the fitness industry this year where she has landed more than 11 fitness covers in 2011. Basically she has averaged a fitness cover a month which is remarkable for a woman particularly because there are more male fitness magazines then female fitness magazines. She has made it possible for women to believe that they too can have success in the fitness industry at over 40 years. She embraces her age at 42 years old and is proud of it. She is just as sexy as ever in fact many people say she looks better now then what she did 10 years ago which is unbelievable. What is amazing is she is having this incredible success while juggling a successful business with her husband and being a fulltime mom to her daughter as well as being a loving wife to her husband.
Although she has graced so many covers all over the world and in previous years she is also an incredible writer for oxygen magazine as she has a Yummy Mommy Fitness Oxygen magazine blog dedicated to mothers trying to stay fit and healthy. She is not just somebody that graces covers of magazines as she has a lot of substance and intelligence and you can see that from her articles. She is incredibly educated with a Master’s Degree in business which makes her one of the most educated fitness personalities in the industry which I believe is what really sets her apart from the rest.
Her images get sold so fast because of her look and incredible marketability to sell a magazine and that is why she was on more than 11 fitness covers this year. She is a living fitness icon and is still one of the top 6 current female fitness models in the world. With her being arguably the most published female fitness model this year clearly proves she deserves to be on top 6 list. She is an inspiration to so many women of all ages because of the success she has had in the fitness industry but more importantly the positive message she puts out on a daily basis.
