Who’s That Man… In Mr Turk

It’s Ryan Young photographed by Wadley Photography. Ryan has been traveling around the world for the past 10 years modeling and acting. Now Ryan has settled down in Los Angeles, sort of, he still travels a lot. He’s focusing on acting and has several projects in the works.

You may also have noticed that Ryan has a fairly fit body. He’s training for the LA Triathlon this summer as well as working with the group “100 Mile Club.” They promote fitness for young people. In January Ryan will be part of the group that starts off the 100 Mile Club’s race across America. He’ll run from Huntington Beach CA to Arizona, 271 miles in 10 days. They’ll also go to schools along the way to encourage walking and running for kids.

Good luck Ryan, that’s a lot of running!

Here are a few tips from John Strand on how to get your body looking and feeling it’s best.

"My key to effective exercise: variety. It prevents the body from adapting and reaching a progress plateau, and prevents the mind from boredom.  My current routine begins with a mile swim every morning, and usually an hour or two of mixed cardio & strength training later in the day. Proper stretching and a focus on flexibility and core strength are also important."

"My key to an effective diet: focus on whole earth foods and eliminate toxins (fast food, soft drinks, processed/GM foods…like most packaged items found in the middle aisles of the grocery store). A large component of my daily diet is "the official John Strand body shake” which I’ve previously posted on my Instagram @JohnStrand ~ it’s delicious and packed with raw vegetables, along with healthy fats & plenty of protein. The secret ingredients: probiotic filled kefir, and 1/2 of a haas avocado.”

Who Are Those Men… In Mr Turk
It’s the Wolf Pack, ten guys who decided they were going to ride in the Aids/LifeCycle and do what they could to bring an end to Aids. I’m happy to say that they raised $156,932.00. They have the highest per person dollar average of any team in the ride. Not bad! 
They aren’t afraid to use their bodies to get attention for their cause. One ride volunteer told them that she was looking at their pictures online and got a message from her employer to stop looking at inappropriate material. 
Congratulations and thanks to Levi Jackman Foster, Marcus Paglialonga, Luke Austin, Kyle Krieger, Ryan Fortwendel, Yucel Yeltekin, Matthew Blaylock, Kris Haigh, and Drake LaBry.

Who’s That Man… In Mr Turk

It’s Sergio Vellatti, a man with such a beautiful voice that when he lost his engineering job during the recession he had to turn to music as a way to make a living.

After getting some encouragement from his mom and Humberto Gatica, a recording engineer who’s worked with some artists you may have heard of like Michael Jackson and Celine Dion, Sergio decided to give professional singing a try. It seems to be paying off! Mr Vellatti is staying busy touring and performing his unique take on jazz and the Blues with local orchestras and at corporate events.

Sergio finds inspiration from some of the same icons I’m inspired by for the Mr Turk line, like Frank Sinatra and Ray Charles. Maybe Sergio Vellatti will be a future musical style icon, he has the looks, the voice and a great sounding name! Checkout his website: www.sergiovellatti.com

It’s Kyle Krieger. From his Instagram handle @kylekriegerhair you can tell where his passion lies. His favorite part of being a hairstylist is getting to meet and work with interesting people. He loves the creativity as well as the travel. Kyle is working on a coffee table book about men’s grooming. It will be a beautifully photographed “how-to” guide for men.

Creativity and sociability are two central aspects of Kyle. Instagram combines these two impulses perfectly for him. He loves taking and sharing photos and this year he’s taken it to another level by using instagram to raise money for another one of his passions, The Aids Lifecycle. He’s almost reached his fund-raising goal of $23,000.00 and his team, the Wolf Pack has past their goal of $100,000.00. This will be Kyle’s second time riding in the Aids Lifecycle but he says he’s particularly looking forward to the ride this year because of the great group of guys he’ll be sharing the experience with. The rest of us can watch on Instagram. To help Kyle out go to www.tofighthiv.org/goto/kylekriegerhair
