In The Gym with COLT Supermodel Gage Weston
At an early age some of us boys plaster our teen bedroom walls with muscle bound studs that we would love to be with and look like. Yes, it was good old Hulk Hogan who told all of us boys of a certain age to: "Say your prayers and eat your vitamins" so, at the age of eight I worked out feverishly on my Hulk Hogan workout set! Soon after I was sweating with Cher and her step aerobics home video. My first tent was pitched over Marky Mark and the New Kids On The Block and they inspired me to join a gym and avoid wearing shirts whenever possible.
Today there is a new crop of muscle boys in town and the best bodies have always been found in the stable of COLT STUDIOS. COLT set a high standard for a young boy to live up to if he’s looking to get a date in any given boys town. The COLT STUDIO physique’s stress hard work on nutrition and strength training. No other model in the testosterone throbbing stable of stallions embodies the ideal of hard work and dedication in the gym more than Gage Weston. The two hundred seventeen pound, blond hair, green eye titan has truly been an inspiration to me and to thousands of others. I asked him to take the time with me to give us a little background on his life in the weight room and being a trainer! In this interview many of you will be able to identify with his struggle to be muscular and strong when not genetically dispositioned to be so. You’ll also get the feeling he’s not as intimidating as the photos and films make him seem!
Carl: First I want to say thank you for taking the time out of your busy day for this interview! I mean being a hot stud myself; I know how incredibly busy hot boys can be right? You’re supposed to agree!!
Gage: I absolutely agree (laughing)! Your very welcome and thanks for wanting to interview me!
Carl: Sure! Who wouldn’t want to talk to you for hours! Anyway, let’s talk about the nuts and bolts behind the body. How much of a contribution has genetics made to the construction of your physique? Do you come from a family of prototypes for the master race?
Gage: I don’t really come from a family with blessed physiques, so genetically I didn’t have a head start. I was actually very skinny as a kid, but I did wrestle and played baseball throughout my childhood. I wrestled all the way up to my senior year in high school. I was athletic, but still skinny. Being skinny or as I call it scrawny, always made me want to get bigger. I started to really hit the weights after I graduated high school, but I didn’t really get serious about it until I was about twenty one, then ended up joining the Marine Corps. That’s when I got a lot more serious about it! I’ve kept with it ever since and put a lot of hard work into it. I also have a career as a Personal Trainer, so that has helped me a lot over the past six years.
Carl: I can’t picture you scrawny! I can picture you as a Marine! So you would you say you were a hard a hard gainer (like me)!
Gage: Oh I’m definitely a hard gainer! I have a super fast metabolism, so I really have to eat a ton to pack on any mass. Its sucks!!
Carl: Wow, You look like someone who is naturally gifted to be a monster! A lot of people will be inspired to know you have to work just as hard as them. How about supplements? Do you like to use Androstenedione (over the counter testosterone boosters), Creatine or Nitric Oxide (No-Explode)?
Gage: I have tried pretty much every over the counter supplement so I have a lot of different opinions on them, and have my personal favorites. Protein of course is the best to supplement when weight training, but I’ve also stuck with the basics like Creatine and the basic Amino Acids to help speed recovery. Most of the others I’ve tried like (NO-Explode) and things along that line, just make you look and feel pumped while you’re working out. They don’t actually help build muscle and give the results they claim, its mostly marketing! Sorry, was getting into my trainer mode there, (laughing)!
Carl: No, That’s what people need to hear! Speaking of you being a trainer, we saw you on the Bravo Series Workout, so you really are a personal trainer you don’t just play one on TV?
Gage: Yes, I am! I’m actually a Fitness Manager at 24 Hour Fitness in California.
Carl: Let’s talk about what it’s like to have you as a trainer. What’s your specialty as a trainer?
Gage: I have so many different clients with different goals. The majority of my clients has weight loss goals, or wants to get lean and lose body fat. But I do have a couple who want to put on more muscle mass, and I have some older clients with medical problems, like cancer, who just want to be healthy and live longer. So I’d have to say I have experience with all forms of training.
Carl: Not every day as a trainer is always filled with inner joy and soaring white doves so what’s your biggest annoyance about your clients?
Gage: My biggest annoyance would be when clients don’t stick to their diet, and wonder why they aren’t getting results!
