Jesse Wright – Male Fitness Model Interview

Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m from San Antonio Texas. I am currently an enlisted Truck driver in the Military. I have completed some college, currently working on my Associates Degree. I am enrolled in the International Sports Science Association and I think it’s an awesome way to go! I’m an Asthmatic and being in shape helps my lungs stay strong. My family is a big part of my life; especially Marie Louise, she keeps me motivated to keep pushing! I am determined to live out my dreams in the fitness world!

How did you get started in the fitness field?
I was that skinny kid who wanted to gain weight in the beginning. As I got older I wanted to get the tone look. After being diagnosed with Asthma I quickly found that being physically fit was a must in my life.

What is the #1 thing you like best about being into fitness?
Helping others.

What has been your biggest accomplishment in the fitness field?
My legs! I have issues with my knees but with a lot of studying, patience, and hard work they have come a long way. I’d still trade them in for a new set any day but they in fact give me fewer issues now and the pain is not as bad.

What is the best way to get started in the fitness modeling industry? Should I just contact the photographers directly or should I use an agency?
I’m still learning about the ins and outs of the modeling business.

Please describe a typical day for you. What is your daily routine like?
At the moment I’m serving a 12 month deployment in Afghanistan so my days change but if I have time, 5:30 am is wake up, 6:30 time to hit the gym, 8:00 breakfast then off to start my work day and when time permits and between my cutting phase I hit the gym in the evening as well.


I don’t have that much time during the day to workout, so I really want to burn major calories in a short amount of time. What is the #1 “bang for the buck” cardio exercise I should do to burn serious calories?
Boxing drill style workout can be something to think about. I say this because it keeps me in great shape! You get full throttle from this workout. You hit your core, legs, endurance, muscle memory, and more all in one session, it’s awesome!

How much weight (pounds) should I focus on losing every week? What is a safe amount to make sure I keep it off?
About a pound a week is a healthy way to go.

What type of food or supplements should I take before and after my workouts to help me see results in gaining lean muscle and losing fat?
That depends on the person and what you decide. I know athletes who use nothing just healthy eating and others choose supplements. If you choose supplements then you must do your homework. Learning what works for you and how to take it is key.

How do you deal with cravings for junk foods, sweets and salty food? I can stay on a diet for maybe a few weeks but I eventually get really bad cravings and binge on snacks and fast foods.
I love this question, I was facing this issue at one period in time as most or all athletes have but after you set your mind to it and stick to your guns, the craving becomes a thing of the past and eating right becomes your natural way of life.

I’m trying to create a healthy shopping list to stick with. What are some of the main foods I should include to maintain a lean and muscular physique?
Veggies, Fruit, lean cuts of meat, and healthy snacks.

I’m about 35 pounds overweight. I have never started an exercise program and really don’t know where to start. What tips can you give me to get started on the right track?
Find out if you have any medical issues then proceed on to find someone with knowledge in the fitness world to help you map out a plan set achievable goals and get busy!

I tend to eat out most of the time and really don’t know what healthy foods to order from the menu. What tips do you recommend for eating out at restaurants to make sure my diet will not suffer?
First off learn what’s considered healthy and clean eating then understand how sugar, fat, grease, and fried foods work at maintaining a descent physique which they don’t! Now look to those other options like fish, baked dishes and so on. Also keep in mind moderation and you will do fine.

What exercises do you recommend for getting a bigger, rounder and fuller butt?
That’s a question females usually bring to me and from experience to focus on that area I incorporate squats and stiff leg dead lifts within a training program and find the outcome puts a smile to someone’s face.


What is the most challenging thing you deal with about consistently staying in top shape?
Overworking myself, even though working out helps cope with asthma too much still can be harmful.
