The hunky Josh Tay is on SimplySxy sharing fitness tips, his diet routine and that fabulous abs of his. Find out more about him in this fun interview!
Hi Josh, it’s a great pleasure to have you on SimplySxy. Can you tell us a little about yourself and where you’re from?
I am from Singapore and I enjoy almost everything fitness related, both indoor and outdoor. I’m 18 years old and still a student in a local polytechnic. I’m a pretty competitive person by nature because I hate to lose. One thing I am very bad at is argument. That I will lose for sure so I avoid it at all cost because I hate to lose. At the moment, besides being a good student, I model part time for extra income with Style House, a local model agency that discovered me from a coffee place.
Please tell us 3 fun facts about yourself!
- I absolutely hate dirt and dirty places. I will start freaking out if I have to endure situations like that.
- Unlike many people, I am not a fan of eating. Food is not something that really interests me. Even I find it hard to believe sometimes.
- I enjoy shopping and getting new things, but who doesn’t?
You were the winner of the Asian Physique Model Search 2014. Can you share some fitness tips to achieve that ripped body of yours?
I would say the most important aspect would be diet. With a proper diet, almost everything else would fall into place. Of course it is difficult to be so conscious of what goes into my mouth every single day but it pays off. I train hard, diet hard and rest well. I feel that it is all in the mind. If you convince yourself that this is worth your effort, time and money, anyone can achieve their dream body too.
Do you follow a very strict diet or do you allow yourself to indulge in some guilty pleasures once in a while?
My diet is pretty strict all year round because I feel too guilty eating unhealthy or non-nutritious food. Although the temptation is very great, I always convince myself not to eat it.
What is one perk you enjoy most about being a model?
Being able to flex in front of the camera! As of late, flexing has become my hobby. Just kidding! It’s really nice being able to see my efforts paid off with a nice picture.
Have you gotten any weird requests from fans?
Of course! Many actually, but I shall keep them confidential because some are just too weird it’s not suitable for publication.
The craziest thing you have ever done and not regret is?
I’m not much of a risk taker by nature but I think the craziest thing I have done would be to do pull ups on a railing 6 stories above ground with no safety precautions. I guess that is pretty crazy for a normal person too…
Which is your favorite body part?
Abs. I think the nicest body part for anyone would be the abs, even for the ladies. For me, I don’t think I can go a day looking at myself without abs.
Thank you again for the lovely interview Josh. Can you tell us how you define “sexy”?
No problem! I feel that confidence is sexy. Sexy does not always have to be physical. Regardless of looks, if the person is confident about himself or herself, that is sexy.
