 Shayne's interview in full

Shayne, a warm welcome to Stunning Men and many thanks for taking the time to do the interview.
Thanks for considering me for the interview. I’m very flattered to be featured in your blog (Shayne gives us his gorgeous smile)

Could we start off with talking a little about yourself and your background? You live in Florida, USA, is that where you’re from?
Absolutely, I’m from Miami, FL and have lived here my whole life. However, I’m three quarters Colombian Mestizo and one quarter German and French.

Wow, that’s an interesting background! You are new to modelling; is it something you always wanted to do?
For a long while yes. I think it would be a great way to open doors for me to someday star in films or be on a television series which is something I would be more interested in doing for the long haul since beauty is fleeting and models don’t usually get to work past a certain age unless they look exceptionally well.

What do you enjoy the most about it?
I love the creative aspect of it and being able to see yourself in a whole new light. The photographer puts you through the filter of his imagination and it’s always interesting to see what he/she has in store. It can be quite a confidence booster as well.

How do you think fitness modelling compares to fashion modelling?
Well, the two obvious differences would have to be that fitness models are much more muscular and don’t exactly have to be the typical 6’2 rail thin types that you see gracing runways in Milan and such. They come in all height variations. Also, fashion models can be muscular but never too bulky.

How do you prepare before a photoshoot?
Lots of cardio, definitely! Stay away from junk food as well. The day of the shoot I also hit the steamroom and try not to drink any water so that the muscles will look a little more visible under the skin. I also don’t eat right before a shoot to look as lean as possible in front of the camera.

What’s the best advice you were given as a model?  
I was told to never ever get into porn. Not that I would, but that’s just what I was told! (Shayne laughs out loud)

You have a great physique. How do you keep in shape and healthy? Do you do any sport?
Well, thanks (another great smile). I don’t do any sports but I do workout 6 days a week. Usually on my off days I just go to the gym to do abs and some light cardio. I always top it off with the steamroom and sauna at the end.

What are your top three favourite exercises?
I love doing chest flyes. Shoulder and calf exercises I really enjoy doing as well.

What’s the best form of cardio for you?
I never use the treadmill but always do cardio on the elliptical machine after my workouts since I heard somewhere that you burn more fat when doing it after a workout rather than before.

What’s your gym/training routine like?
I switch it up sometimes so my body doesn’t get used to the same old routine but at the moment I’ll do Chest/biceps/traps monday, tuesday is lower back/legs, and wednesday is back/triceps/shoulders. Thursday would be my break day and on Friday the process repeats. I do abs everyday at the beginning of my workouts so I won’t be too tired to do them afterwards. I also do 15-30 minutes of cardio after my workouts.

How do you keep motivated?
I look at guys in the gym who are still in highschool who have better bodies than me and I think to myself, “Well, if they can do it then I sure can.”

How do you fit training and fitness into your life? Is it a difficult thing to achieve?
It’s really not all that difficult if the will power is there. I always make time for the gym. The times I go vary though depending on my schedule for the day.

How do you approach a challenge?
I go at it full force.

What do you eat in a normal day?
I pretty much eat everything - not gonna lie. However, as of late I have cut back majorly on junk food and unnecessary sugar and have since gotten leaner and am continuing to lean out even more so.

What do you do in your down time?
Just hang with friends. Maybe hit up clubs or go to the beach. I also enjoy reading a good book and brushing up on my Japanese.

Wow! Japanese?! ... Do you have any role models? People who inspire you?
I would have to say Jesus Christ. I mean whether you believe or not, the man suffered and died on a cross with the intent of saving humanity. That’s pretty awesome!

Now a few quick fun questions if we may? Do you think you are a good date?
Yeah, I tend to make the other person feel very at ease especially if it’s the first time meeting up.

Are you a brief man or a boxer kinda guy?
I wear both but am also known for going commando. (Shayne flashes his beautiful smile)

What do you listen to on your iPod?
Oh man, everything! Two of my fave bands are Deftones and Innerpartysystem, though.

Your favourite song/piece of music to play while running?
The track Greyhound by Swedish House Mafia really gets me going.

What kind of movies do you like?
Usually anything of the Sci/Fi and Horror genre but I’ll watch any film as long as it’s entertaining enough. I also enjoy Japanese foreign films.

What three words describe you best?
From what other people tell me they would have to be sweet, honest, but also a little weird at times.

One last question Shayne, where do you see yourself and what would you like to be doing in 10 years time?
Would definitely love to be acting in films!

Shayne, it has been a pleasure to interview you! Thank you for your time and for being a good sport. All the best for the future!
Thanks a lot, it was a pleasure (and Shayne treats us with another of his trademark smiles!)
