Where’s your favorite place to exercise in Los Angeles?
My favorite place to work out is the local gym with my friends Nic and Charlie. I prefer to workout at LA Fitness.
How do you push yourself to your limits when exercising?
I enjoy working out and it’s more of a life style then a choice. It’s easier when you’re working out with other people who have the same goals, but when it’s just me, I think about my goals and future and how I’m going to achieve them. It all starts with diet and exercise.
Do you follow a specific diet when you’re trying to build muscle?
Yes, to build muscle I change my calorie intake, up my proteins, carbs and decrease my fats. So when trying to build muscle, I change my Macros in order to fit the results I want.
What do you eat after a workout?
After a workout, my go to snacks are fruits, apples and bananas, or candies that are high in Glucose or corn syrup, such as Hi-Chews.
Do you take any supplements or proteins?
Currently, I use pre-workout as a thermogenic for dietary reasons. I’m taking no other supplements, I get enough proteins through my normal diet. I can settle for coffee.
Which three beauty products could you not live without?
Three beauty products I can not live without are Kiel’s face and body lotion and always Kiel’s facial wash.
What’s the weirdest comment you got on social media?
“Will you marry me?”
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In the future I will continue to challenge myself and pursue my passions both professionally and personally. I see myself in So Cal with a wife and kids continuing to work hard and enjoying a healthy lifestyle. Hopefully modeling and acting will still be a part of my life because I enjoy it so much.
