As the new Model Universe Champion, Aaron Bean says, "The fitness side of the business is fairly new to me but I clearly feel very comfortable on stage and learned a lot about how to improve for future competitions." The 6'3", 178 lbs., 39 year old Floridian is a full time fashion and commercial model with Wilhelmina in Miami and Adam in New York City. So, how does a successful model train for fitness shows. Aaron explains, "It's a challenge, though a fun one, to manage to find the right balance between having some size for these shows and maintaining the needed slenderness and proportions I need for fashion modeling." He went to say that he's on fire and already preparing for Model America in Las Vegas in November.
