Small-town boys turned big-time men! It’s the usual male model’s story. Many of them, especially from the south, have naturally sported the physique that makes a man stand out. Beautiful body, smooth face, flawless skin – all because of the nature of their day to day life. Boys who grew up from the country don’t have the vanities or even fitness resources of urban men, but gets the same result with their looks and bodies…naturally!
That’s what makes our boy, transformed to first-rate male fitness model, William Price a natural hunk. A self-proclaimed “country boy at heart,” William was born in Lincoln, Nebraska and grew up in a small town in Central Florida. He loves to “hunt, fish, go out on the boat, or relax with friends when it gets cold around a bon fire.” An athlete at heart, William has been playing tons of sports, as he emphasized, “since I could walk.” Passionate on maintaining his great physique, he loves going to the gym and does training in mix martial arts. He also mountain bikes so he can revel in the outdoors and appreciate the natural beauty of what’s around him.
Like a lot of guys who seem to be destined to become attractive for many reasons, modeling never crossed his mind, especially as a teenager.”I was the kid in high school with acne and low self confidence. However, through sports, I developed my physique and my skin cleared up as I aged.” As he continues to develop himself, gaining the body and face that turns heads and captures attention, several of his friends told him to get into modeling. Through social networks MySpace and Facebook, William was contacted by several companies and began talking to NorCalBodz, and after a year decided he wanted to pursue modeling.
In September 2009, he flew to Sacramento, California to meet Gary Gonzales, owner of NorCalBodz Photography and NCB Model Management. Many in the industry knows the great value of having a manager you can trust and depend on, fortunately for William, he and Gary “hit it off.” As William narrates, “the rest is history and I’m looking to continue to do all I can to peruse modeling farther.”
Asked about his plans for modeling, “I don’t have any set plans but I want to see where modeling can take me.” He hopes to be on a cover of a fitness magazine someday and has in his career goals to make it to a billboard or window advertisement; like a lot of male fitness models who are on track to branding themselves big, William desires to shoot and produce his own calendar.
He has already been on several underwear campaigns and is building up his portfolio, particularly in fitness modeling. In line with this, he has a workout based more on what he feels he has deal with, in terms of body part, than a strict and inflexible program. “I would consider myself more old school in the gym I prefer compound movements like bench-press and squats. I train heavy and hardcore; my training roots came from when I first started training for football in high school.” He cites a typical split he may follow during the week:
MONDAY – chest/shoulders/tris
TUESDAYt – lats/traps/bis
WEDNESDAY – legs/abs
THURSDAY – chest/tris
FRIDAY – sholders/lats/traps/bis
SATURDAY – legs/abS
William Price’s MaleFitnessModels.NET Workout Tip: The best tip I could ever give someone is one I have had to learn myself. Diet, diet, diet you are what you eat. When you look in the mirror what you see will be a direct result of what you put in your mouth. You can have the best workout, do all the cardio in the world, work abs all day long, but without the proper diet you will not reap the full benefits. Diet is truly the cornerstone of any serious bodybuilder, athlete, or anyone serious about getting results.
Asked what makes William Price stand-out in the world of fitness modeling: “I think what makes me stand out is my over all experience in all areas of fitness. I’ve been involved in many sports and I know just what it takes to succeed. I have overcome a lot of adversity. I don’t think fitness modeling is any different. I think my drive and sheer will to succeed will take me where I want to go”
Drive and sheer will, two powerful attitudes we can glean and take from a hunk who has transformed himself…naturally!
