What is a Spokesmodel?

A Campus Men Spokesmodel is a male college student who is knowledgeable about strength training and appears in informative “Exercise Videos”, following pre-written scripts.

Here is what is different with our program: You do not actually perform the exercise movement in our videos. Animations show the actual exercise movement. We need you to speak dialogue that introduces these animations. You can view a demo video.

You live in the US or Canada.

You are physically-fit.

You do not need to be a certified Personal Trainer.

You live within driving distance of one of the 15 campuses we will visit.*

How Our Production Works

Our exercise database contains more than 600 exercises, categorized into 12 muscle groups. Our production process involves two phases: Phase One involves audio-only clips for each exercise. Phase Two involves professional-grade video footage.

Once accepted into our program, we assign a batch of 40-70 exercises categorized in a single muscle group to you.

Phase One

Our first phase involves audio-only recordings. These audio recordings will be combined with video footage that will later be filmed.

During phase 1, We will ship a written "script" for each exercise in your assigned muscle group, along with a professional microphone and a sound dampening box (to help eliminate background noise). Each script is approximately 20 seconds of dialogue. The dialogue discusses 1) what makes the exercise different from others and 2) ways some people do the exercise incorrectly. You record this wording on your own, from your home, using the microphone we shipped you.

An example of a script is below.

The below dialogue is for the exercise, “Reverse Grip Machine Lat Pulldown” and is one of 67 scripts that will be recorded by the SpokesModel who will be assigned all Back exercises.

Clip Dialogue Word Count
Clip A (Intro) “We are going to show you how to do a Reverse Grip Machine Lat Pulldown properly.” 16
Pause Separate the clips with a 2-second pause between clips  
Clip B (Differentiation) “This variation of a Pulldown differs from other pulldowns in that it employs the biceps as well as the outer-lats in a machine setting in order to maximize weightload and effectiveness.” 54

You record this dialogue in a quiet area indoors using the soundbox and microphone we provide. You should be able to finish all clips in a single afternoon (a total of approx. 20 minutes of audio).

Phase Two

Once you have recorded all the audio-only dialogue for your assigned batch of exercises, we move onto Phase 2. We invite you to attend our shoot, where all video footage is created.

Phase 2 involves professional-quality video footage of you that we film with our cameras. You speak during this footage, but we do the filming. Remember, you will not perform any exercise. We use animations for that!

At the professional shoot, you will sign a model release and receive a check for phase 1 and phase 2. Please note you do not receive payment for the phase 1 files until you show up for the phase 2 shoot. We do not use any recorded files until you receive payment from us.

After your shoot, we edit all the audio and video clips together, along with animations of the exercise movement to create superior quality exercise videos.

More Details!

  • Our Process

    When we create a professional video, there is a lot more preparation than you may be accustomed to when shooting your own videos with your phone! Preparing for a professional video shoot involves planning and memorizing, not just an ability to move. We don't just show up and press the record button.

    This is because video editing time is costly. The more organized a shoot, the less "takes," mistakes, starts and stops will be needed. Less time will be needed in the editing studio.

    Plus, with pre-planning, we can edit and publish your videos faster. Being organized also makes the resulting video shorter and more watchable.

    We Film Multiple Exercises Per Spokesmodel/Per Shoot

    It takes time to set up cameras, microphones and lights. Locations must be secured. We need to complete a minimum number of videos each time equipment is unloaded and set-up.

  • Payment Rates

    Videos are created in two parts. Some audio parts you record on your own. All video is filmed by us. You will be paid after both parts are finished.

  • You will not demonstrate exercises

    Actual mechanics of the exercise is shown through animations and a voiceover (audio track).

    Your speaking parts will be performed in front of a wall - not in a gym.

  • Filming Location

    Your speaking parts will not be filmed in a gym. Phase two speaking parts will be performed in front of a wall/backdrop.

Additional Terms

  • You must be a resident of the USA or Canada to participate in a video shoot.
  • If you are under 18, your parents will need to give us written permission before you can be invited to a video shoot.
  • There is no cost to you for participating in our shoots. If you need to travel, we cover travel costs and meals.
  • You agree not to publish the video (or text for your topic) created during or for your shoot on Youtube, Facebook or any other website. All exercise videos must only appear on the Campus Men Youtube Channel. You can, however, film and publish your own "behind the scenes" footage concerning your shoot experience, provided Campus Men appears in the title of all videos.
  • You cannot use anonymous names or fake names.
  • When creating a profile on the site, you must use your real name and upload an Avatar image that shows your face. Submitting our registration form creates a publicly available profile page.
