Bodybuilders, or anyone with the body you’d like to look like, can be hard to spot in the real world.
But the real reason to consider a career in the fitness industry is that it offers opportunities that would be hard or impossible to find in other industries.
A new study from the University of Minnesota found that while the vast majority of professional bodybuilders do the same workout routine and diet routine, only about one in five of them are aware of the bodybuilding industry’s potential.
It also found that the vast bulk of the industry’s male bodybuilders are not aware of bodybuilding’s diversity and inclusionary ideals.
“This is a really important and overlooked part of the community,” said David G. Fauci, a professor of organizational behavior at the University at Buffalo.
“Bodybuilding is a community that exists outside of the mainstream, but within the mainstream.”
The study, published in the Journal of Organizational Behavior, used online survey questions and a database of more than 5,000 professionals to study the attitudes of more, rather than just bodybuilders.
Researchers asked professional bodybuilding fans, a group of individuals who typically are not members of the public, about their perceptions of bodybuilders and their experience in the industry.
The researchers found that professional bodybuilders are less aware of their gender, race, socioeconomic status and health status than the general population.
However, when the researchers looked at the bodybuilders’ demographic information, they found that just one in 10 professional bodybuilder fans said they knew a male bodybuilder was not part of their profession.
Bodybuilding, as a professional bodypart, is often thought of as an extreme, masculine sport.
But Faucci believes that is an inaccurate portrayal of the professional body.
“Most bodybuilders, if they know that they are part of a sport, would have the same type of training and bodybuilding regimen,” he said.
“So if you look at the sport, they do it in the same way.
They do it with the same equipment and the same bodybuilding rules.
They don’t even have the name bodybuilding.”
While many bodybuilders choose to not identify themselves, they can.
According to Faucci, many bodybuilding enthusiasts do so to avoid social stigma and social exclusion.
“When they do that, they are able to be themselves, but it also allows them to do that that the public would not see them as a member of the sport,” Faulli said.
Bodybuilders are often referred to as the “new bodybuilders,” which is ironic because the sport has been around for hundreds of years.
The sport is still very popular, and bodybuilders have a large following worldwide, with millions of fans around the world.
“For the most part, bodybuilders want to be known as athletes, not bodybuilders because they are seen as athletes,” Faurci said.
When a professional does decide to be visible in the public sphere, Faucci said that often times, it’s because they feel they are missing out on opportunities and recognition.
“I think that a lot of times when people have the chance to work in a bodybuilding shop, they want to work for that company, because they want the job,” Fucci said, referring to the vast array of professional shops that are available in the U.S. The professional body is often a stepping stone to other careers in the health care field, Faurcio said.
Many bodybuilders work in the office, where they can earn more and earn more money, while their female counterparts can work in health care, he said, which is also an opportunity for more opportunities for women to earn more.
“In a lot more ways, bodybuilding has the potential to be an alternative career path to health care,” Fucaci said of the profession.
The study also found women are much more likely than men to say they’re more interested in pursuing a career as a bodybuilder.
“The women who are really into the sport are more likely to want to pursue that in the future,” Faughci said about the survey results.
“If you look back, maybe you did something wrong, maybe it was not that good, and maybe it’s something you want to do again.”
The report is a step in the right direction, said Fauici, but bodybuilding is still not fully inclusive.
“It’s a way for bodybuilders to be seen and not just a way to sell muscle and make money,” he noted.
“But I think it’s important that we all realize that the sport is very diverse, and it’s very inclusive of all different bodies, including bodies that aren’t part of this industry.”
Faucais co-authored the study with Mark B. Anderson, associate professor of management at the College of Business and Management at the U of B. The research was funded by the University Center for Organizational Psychology.
