The fitness influencer has been in the industry for more than 8 years.

The three-time SI Swimsuit model, who was photographed by James Macari in the Dominican Republic for the 2023 Issue, posted a TikTok video showing off her five favorite fitness modeling poses.

“As a fitness model for 8+ years, i got you!!! Here are some beginner poses you can try💪,” she captioned the clip shared with her 735,000 followers.

“Want to fitness model, but don’t know where to start,” read the on-screen text. “Here are my fav simple poses!”

The 29-year-old founder of the Katie Austin app rebranded her platform earlier this year and shared tons of gorgeous promotion photos employing all of her signature fitness poses.

The 2022 co-Rookie of the year. began with the “step back twist,” a backwards lunge, with her upper body twisted toward the camera and arms at a 90 degree angle and stacked on top of each other.

The next move was the “pigeon with a slight arch,” which is essentially a pigeon stretch while sitting up and resting on your palms instead of forearms.

The third pose was an “S curve with a loose arm stretch.” She kept one leg straight and popped the other foot with her knee bent. Austin clasped her hands together and stretched them above her head and to one side with her elbows bent.

The 2021 Swim Search open casting call winner’s final move was called “fixing the pony” which is exactly how it sounds.
