Tyler Nash

28 years oldstunning Tyler Nash is a fitness model from Sacramento, California, US.

Tyler has an awesome physique and we are very excited to be featuring him at Stunning Men. Many thanks to Tyler for the biography and to Gary Gonzalez at NorCalBodz for the photos.

 Tyler grew upin Sacramento, CA in a family of six kids. He is number four and the first bornson. Tyler and his siblings were raised to work hard and earn everything theyhave. Every summer from the time he was eight years old, his dad would take himto work with him while he built custom houses. Tyler learned the value of adollar and how hard you had to work to put food on the table for a family of eight.

 When he was 16, Tyler did home school for one semester with his 15 year oldbrother while working with his dad. This was when they started trainingtogether in the gym. They started experimenting with weight lifting, notknowing what they were doing but they both were inspired to be fit and lookbig. Tyler continued lifting weights through high school, playing sports, andstriving for the perfect body. After high school his parents, and eventually hiswhole family, moved away. Tyler decided to stay, but made sacrifices to supporthimself all on his own, like not working out. He had no help from anyone so heworked multiple jobs and did gruelling work just to pay the rent.

 A few years later while working he fell and dislocated his rotator cuff. Thedoctor gave him the option to have surgery or do physical therapy. He chosephysical therapy, which began his quest to develop the ultimate body andstrength. Tyler remembers the three words that helped him stay focused:determination, dedication and discipline. The three Ds. He was determined tobecome the best of the best, dedicated to giving fitness his all anddisciplined enough to set and achieve his own standards. This is how he got tothe fitness level he is now. If he could thank one person for helping himachieve his goal it would be his workout partner of the last seven years, whotaught him more than he ever knew about body building and the correct eatinglifestyle.

 Tyler is a very confident person who is always motivated by new challenges andopportunities that come his way. He has a very professional work ethic and alwaysput his work first, while maintaining a fun attitude. He is very much enjoyingthe fitness modelling industry and seeking to collaborate with superiorphotographers!

We are thrilled to present Paul to you at Stunning Men and grateful he agreed to be interviewed.

Here is the interview in full

Stunning Men – Hi Paul, a warm welcome to Stunning Men and abig thank you for agreeing to answer our questions.
Could we start with talking a little about your backgroundand childhood?
Paul Talbot – I grew up just north of Philly at the base ofthe Pocono Mountains. I was the middle child with an older sister and a youngerbrother and parents that were married for over 50 years.  We had very little growing up, but had lotsof love in the family.

SM – Was modelling something you always wanted to do?
PT – No not at all; and it still seems strange at times thatpeople want to shoot me. 

SM – How did you become a model then?
PT – I started after being approached after my firstbodybuilding contest when I was 42, and off it went from there.

SM – What do you enjoy the most in modelling? 
PT – I love seeing all the diverse ways the photographers canmake me look.  Sometime I’ll see theshots and think that is not my personality at all but the photographer was ableto bring out a different side of me with clothes or lighting.

SM – How do you prepare before a photoshoot?
PT – I always stay fairly lean but about 3 weeks before ashoot I start drinking more water and trying to stay away from salt.  The 2 days prior to the shoot I cut off thewater, no water for 36 hours, then eat a salty high carb meal late the nightbefore the shoot.  Sometimes I spray tanbut my skin is fairly dark to start.

SM – Have you done nude shoots? If so, how do you find beingnaked in front of the camera?
PT – Yes I have, with Mark Henderson in Dallas. Mark had mefeel very comfortable and it was a fun shoot. Since then I have done none, since those picture have little value to mepersonally.

SM – Do you have any tips to get things more comfortableduring a nude shoot? 
PT – First you have to have complete trust in thephotographer, second lay out what you are willing to do, and not willing to dofor the camera.  That way there is no questionand the shoot will be more relaxed.

SM – Have you done any runway work?
PT – None, I’m too big! Most designers want a coat hanger todisplay their work. I would do underwear or sportswear, I have just never beenpicked, my age turns most folks off in the modelling business.

SM – What kind of exercises do you do to keep intop shape? Do you practise any sports?
PT – I lift free weights 5 days a week and do a 30 minutecardio session 3 to 4 times a week.

SM – What do you like wearing when you are not working as amodel?
PT – I’m a jeans and T-shirt guy. I like to get dressed upfor an event but those are rare.

SM – What do you think about the modelling industry?
PT – It’s tough. Lucky for me I have a good day job that paysthe bills.  I have been told by agencyowners that there is no market for someone like me due to age, and I think thatis crazy but I haven’t been able to make them realise that us older guys don’ttake ads seriously when the guys are 20; we can’t relate so we fly right onpast them.

SM – Do you have any role models in the fashion world? Peoplewho inspired you to pursue a modelling career?
PT – Gregg Plittis the god of fitness modelling.

SM – Besides modelling, what gets your interestand what are your hobbies?
PT – I enjoy outdoor sports, skiing, hiking, and traveling,but I also like to lie on the beach and watch the sights walk past and drink acold beer.

SM – What do you do to have fun and relax?
PT – Ride my bike, workout, hang out with friends, try newplaces and new experiences.

SM – What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
PT – Can’t say that here, but 99% of the time I am verystable and stay within the lines!

SM – Are you a brief man or a boxer kinda guy?
PT – Brief or none.  Mybutt is big enough, I don’t need to try and stuff boxers into my pants.

SM – Who are your favourite singers or musicians and what dolike to listen to?
PT – I like top 40 stuff, fun relaxing music if I am justlistening.  If out dancing more tribal orhouse music is good.

SM – We know that you have to watch what you eat; but do youhave any guilty pleasures?
PT – I’m not a sweet tooth guy and I don’t drink or eat anymilk products so that keeps me off the hook for a lot of things.  I do like to eat just plain crackers likewheat thins, or cheese nip and somehow the box always gets empty fast!

SM – If you weren’t modelling, what would you be doing?
PT – I would probably be in worst shape and just sittingaround. Modelling keeps me motivated to stay on top of my game.

SM – Do you have any projects or photoshoots coming up?
PT – I have just done a shoot with Sebastian Barone and I am shooting with Kevin Hoover for a projecthe is working on.  Also being a guesthost of a cooking show that highlights cooking health to grow your muscle andreduce fat; it should be fun!

SM– One last question Paul, where do you see yourself and what would you like tobe doing in 10 years time?
PT– Hopefully everything will be the same, life is good.  The challenge is trying to maintain a youthfullook over time.

SM – Thank you so much for taking part to our interview andfor being such good sport. 
PT – Thank you for asking me to be part of Stunning Men, it’sa true honour for me to be out there with all the top young guys you havefeatured.
SM – All the best for the future Paul.
PT – Thanks again for the chance to be on the site.
