Here's Ben's interview in full



Ben, welcome to stunning men and a big thank you for taking the time to do the interview. You are from Fremantle, Western Australia.

Originally I'm from a small town on the coast called Denmark. I moved to the city to study Sport Science however midway through my degree I decided on a career change and took on an apprenticeship as a heavy diesel mechanic where I thoroughly enjoy the challenges I'm presented with.


First thing first, how did you get into modelling?

I first got into modelling when I was studying at Uni and a friend said I might have what it takes to give it a shot. I did a few shoots and runways but was younger and never really took it seriously. After a couple years away from the industry to focus on other aspects of my life and my trade career, I came to the decision that modelling was a passion of mine and something I wanted to take far. 


What do you think is the most fulfilling thing about modelling?

Modelling is an excellent platform for life where you can test your own confidence and commitment to doing the best you can. I'm determined to get the most I can from this opportunity and look forward to the challenges it presents. 


How comfortable are you in showing of your physique in a shoot?

It's progressively become easier as I developed both my body and mind over time. I've learned to take little notice of what else is going on in a shoot and be very present to do what's necessary to create the required images. 


You are looking amazing. How on earth did you get in such shape?

Thank you, I appreciate that. Many countless hours in the gym and even more in the kitchen getting my nutrition down. I've always had a keen interest in the human body and developing it to its full potential, so working out and bettering my training has always been a natural progression. 


When did your passion for fitness start?

I started training when I'd walk to my dad’s fire station after school and train in his gym there. It was pretty basic stuff to begin with and I've had a couple small breaks from it over the years but consistency has been the key. 


What keeps you determined and driven to work out?

The thought of letting a day go by where I am not bettering myself physically and mentally drives me day in day out. I believe we are given this lifetime to get whatever it is we desire most and for me that is continually growing and improving myself. A strong body is a suit of armour for an even stronger mind. 


What is your diet like?

Honestly it's pretty flexible. In the beginning I counted calories and tracked my macros but these days I am pretty in tune with my body. So long as I get a decent amount of protein in I eat everything else in balance. For my most recent shoot I simply cut back on my overall intake of food a small amount each week until I felt I was ready for the shoot. 


If you had a cheat day, what would be your favourite food?

I'm a sucker for ice cream, in particular Ben and Jerrys. If I feel like I deserve it, putting away a tub isn't a challenge (Ben laughs out loud). 


Can you share your fitness regime with us?

Sure, I train 6 days a week with one off to let my body repair. I incorporate cardio depending on if I'm in a gaining or cutting phase. I usually go through periods where I'll focus on bringing up a lagging body part by training it twice a week. For example: Monday: Back and Triceps, Tuesday: Chest and Biceps, Wednesday: Rest, Thursday: Shoulders and Abs, Friday: Legs, Saturday: Triceps and Cardio and Sunday: Biceps and abs.


And what's the best form of cardio for you?

I either jump on a bike or the treadmill, and will do 15 minutes at a fairly high intensity.


Now a few quick fun questions if we may. Do you think you’re a good date?

You'd probably have to ask my dates (a bigger laugh), but I think I'm pretty easy to get along with and was raised with good values on how to treat women. I have a pretty busy life at the moment though, so have little time for dating.


Your favourite song or piece of music to play while training or running?

I like music with base or something a bit heavier. Bands like System of a Down and Alexisonfire are regular listens.


Do you have any passions beside fitness?

I have a passion for having a positive impact on others’ lives, I want to motivate others to get the most from their lives. I'm hoping to make some waves in that department in the next couple of years.


What can't you live without?

My beats by Dr Dre headphones.


Could you finish these two sentences for us? You wouldn't know but I'm very good at …

… bodyboarding.


Now... I'm just not very good at …

… dancing (huge laugh).


One last question Ben, what is your big dream?

To take my physique to the next level, start a successful business and find someone worth spending my life with. Also to positively impact others’ lives, to inspire them to chase their dreams despite circumstances and reservations. I hope everyone accomplishes their goals and lives long happy lives.


Ben, it has been a real pleasure to interview you! Thank you for being such good sport. All the best for the future.

Justin's full interview


Justin, welcome to Stunning Men and a big thank you for taking the time to do the interview. You are from New South Wales, Australia and currently live in Sydney?
Thank you! This is my pleasure I’m currently working with the Navy and I'm based in Perth, Australia until mid-September, when my ship sets sail to the east coast of Sydney, though I'm going back and forth constantly on courses until then. Life’s a treat especially being able to travel and introduce myself around the country.

That sounds awesome. First thing first ... how did you get into modelling?
How did I get into modelling? In all honesty it was my way of boosting my confidence. Not to pull the heart strings out though, I was bullied my whole schooling years, I struggled to face myself in the mirror, unmotivated and I didn’t want to be seen by the world. It was only until I met a true friend and an old partner, Diana where she guided me feel love and wanted. To not care what others think and that I actually am a lovely person.

And a very lovely person you are too. Now what do you think is the most fulfilling thing about modelling?
The freedom and emotions that may be felt with each picture. The true colours of my personality shown to everyone.

And how comfortable are you in showing off your physique in a shoot?
I’m comfortable as long as I have prepared for a shoot, nutrition and training is a prior preparation that need to be tampered with.

You are looking amazing. How on earth did you get into such shape?
That’s so kind of you to say. In all honesty I never feel pleased with my physique. I know I can always do better each time but it's all a learning lesson.
My physique started to change when I used gym as my form of aggression. My feelings and thoughts all left my side when I walk through those doors.

When did your passion for fitness start?
Fitness is in my blood. Ever since mum threw me in that pool and taught me to swim and keep myself afloat before I was 4 months old.

What keeps you determined and driven to work out?
Motivation comes from hearing everyone else’s opinions about myself or even new research that’s come out through studies.
Seeing images of guys with insane physiques makes me feel like one day I’ll be there. One day someone will look at me and I'll be their inspiration.

What is your diet like?
Dieting changes all the time, and it gets very difficult to diet if the right food isn’t available at the time whilst in the military. I’m making sure I'm getting a substantial amount of protein each day with my fats and carbs being the only major changes each day. I'm very strict. But I eat a lot! I train to eat! (Justin flashes his great smile)

If you had a cheat day, what would be your favourite food?
Hmm, I have a sweet tooth and I have my father to blame for that, I love my duff! (A naval term for dessert) give me pastries with sweet jam any day!

Can you share your fitness regimen with us?
Sure, 04.30 I'm up and ready for a minute 30 run. Mixing that up between HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and LISS (Low Intensity Steady State)
16.00 would be a major muscle group weighted workout for about 1.5 hrs with abs or calves at the start.
Then 18.30 would be a minor muscle group of about 45 mins weighted session.

And what’s the best form of cardio for you?
I love outdoor activities like swimming or football anything to get the heart rate up. On those cold nights it's either the stepper or stationery bike.

Now a few quick fun questions if we may? Do you think you are a good date?
It all depends if you love romance. I’m such a softy, from opening doors to candle lit dinners to providing my coat for warmth. Many times I've been told I'm an old soul. But I want to be the man that can prove a woman I will be there to comfort and protect her and make sure she is loved with my all.

Your favourite song or piece of music to play while training or running?
I don’t have a specific artist or individual I love but, I need a drop and a bass. Anything from trap to hard style to heavy metal. I’m that guy usually head banging in the corner (Justin laughs out loud).

Do you have any other passions besides fitness?
I’d say surfing but that's fitness again (more laughing), I love playing my ukulele to acoustic music, but true to my heart I love business. I love starting from the bottom and working my way up! I'm passionate about improving myself to be a better person whether that's career orientated or personal.

What can’t you live without?
My family. Especially my brother and sister in Canada who have provided me with beautiful nephews and a niece.

Could you finish these two sentences for us? You wouldn’t know, but I’m very good at ...
… providing comfort and support to anyone who comes my way.

Now ... I’m just not very good at …
… funny you should say that because I may be great at support and comfort but sometimes I don’t follow my own advice. I call it testing the boundaries.

One last question Justin, what is your big dream?
To have a wife and two children (whom I've secretly named but will stay private) have that beach shack on the water with no doors and only white drapes to feel like I'm walking through the doors to heaven to step onto sand with a beautiful offshore surf break.

A beautiful dream and goal … Justin, it has truly been a pleasure to interview you! Thank you so much for your time and for sharing a little of your life with us. All the best for the future
