Roneique Banks is a proud native of Battle Creek, MI, who relocated to Beverly Hills, CA at the tender age of 13. She attended glamorous Beverly Hills High School, and later became a teaching trainee at Dorsey High School while studying pre medicine biology in college. Inspired after landing her first magazine cover at age 7, and heavily influenced by the allure of nearby Hollywood, she knew that she was destined to take a huge bite out of the swimsuit modeling industry.
At age 18, Roneique knew that the iron was hot, and that it was her time to strike. After booking her first spokesmodel assignment for the groundbreaking Bronze Beauty Swimsuit Calendar, she was on a roll and determined to break down any barriers placed in front of her. Commercials, television hosting, and print work for magazines such as Musclemag (cover), Ironman, Ebony, Jet, Essence, Muscular Development, Fit Beauties, Stuff, Maxim, Lowrider (cover), American Curves, Black Men, Splat, Wheels (3 covers), Muscle and Fitness, Body Of Art, Details, etc. continued to roll in as she became a regular fixture within the pages of publications worldwide. With a heavy emphasis on health and fitness, Roneique’s name has become synonymous with beauty, empowerment, diversity, and feminine curves. She currently continues to build her brand as a print icon, consults for a cosmetic surgeon, as well as hosts the fitness television show BodTv.
Outside of professional accomplishments, she travels often, is an avid reader, an automotive enthusiast, animal rights activist, makes handmade jewelry, enjoys epicurean adventures, designs women’s footwear, and never lets a day go by without living, laughing, and loving with family and friends.
