We met and shot Kyle Bias at this year's Derby Classic and knew immediately that he was going to be an incredible model, if he had an interest. He did and the images here show that we were right. He competes in Classic Physique and, with some added mass he will be perfect for that class. NGA shows later this year are in his plans and he's already met and begun working with Josh Miller to enhance his posing. Fantastic look on this guy, we think you'll agree. Enjoy his interview and photos and contact us if you're interested in working with him. For certain there will be many future shoots with Musclehead Graphics and limited edition prints are in the works, so expect an update.

Interview with this Month’s Featured Model: Kyle Bias
How did you get into modeling?
Modeling has been in my life since I was a child. I won 5th place in a beauty competition with a baby picture in Albany, Georgia which is where I was born. Modeling came into my life again when I was in high school. I took a picture for a homecoming dance in J.C. Penny’s and they used our picture to advertise on the wall. I was also in a fashion show for Decadence by Drew representing his bridal clothing line. The Ashland Mall had another fashion show advertising athletic wear for Aeropostle. Last but not least, Mr. J.C. Norton presented himself to me after a bodybuilding competition and we have done two great collaborations since then and can’t express the joy I have about the future of my modeling career.
What are your goals in the profession? Do you see it as a full-time occupation or an avocation?
I am a Master Personal Trainer at LA Fitness in Louisville, Ky. My overall goal is to own my own personal gym and create a great mind body connection while educating individuals on how to nourish their bodies and use the correct principles in the gym to create great success in life. Honestly, I see this as a full time job even though I have more to learn by furthering my education in the Physical Therapy field to help individuals heal specific injuries with a natural holistic lifestyle.
If it's an avocation, what are your other career goals?
Well since I see it as a full time job, the career goals beyond what I have already accomplished requires getting a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Forever furthering my education to learn and become the best possible trainer I can become both rehabilitation and strengthening.
Looking as good as you do isn't easy. What are your training methods?
I love to switch up my training methods every 4-6 weeks to shock the body. Switching my focus between isometrics and isotonics to prevent myself from hitting plateaus and always progressing through my journey. My focus in the gym isn’t to be the strongest, biggest individual, it’s to be able to stay healthy, and stay as ripped as I can keeping my body fat percentage low. I have a YouTube channel about to launch that will broadcast the training methods that I use to get results.
How about diet?
I have recently changed my diet to transitioning myself to a Vegan. I am beginning to consume pure substances without any additives that are detrimental to your health. The feeling is amazing to eat raw vegetables, fresh fruits, and no animal products because I can really tell my inflammation in my body has gone away. My body fat percentage is below 8% and for my body weight I am a strong bodybuilder that will soon be competing in a NGA show.
Do you plan to compete in bodybuilding or fitness shows or have you already?
I have competed in the Kentucky Muscle at the Galt House in Louisville, Ky. I ended up placing 5th and getting the first sword of my bodybuilding career in the NPC. I now switch my focus to the NGA to place myself better in becoming a Pro Bodybuilder because since I have lifted I have wanted to be a sponsored athlete to help promote a healthy lifestyle.
How do you kick back and relax?
When I kick back and relax I enjoy kayaking and canoeing while camping near a lake to appreciate the natural surroundings of our world. Submerging my body in a bath bomb as well as meditating with a candle light dinner with fresh foods.
How about some favorites?
My favorite sport is basketball, I am a Duke FANATIC. Have always been a Duke basketball fan and expanding my love throughout the entire university because I love the morals they stand for.
My favorite vegetable is the avocado. I can eat them on anything and they contain great essential fats for great absorption through muscle building exercises.
My favorite food to eat is the vegetarian sushi roll with cucumbers, avocados, carrots, kale, spinach wrapped in rice paper.
My favorite lift in the gym is a body weight handstand push-up. I enjoy testing my body with my own weight.
Actor: Ben Stiller, literally love this man in every movie he is in.
Actress: Jennifer Aniston, she plays in a bunch of great movies displaying a great physique as her age.
Movie: Zoolander, great movie that correlates to modeling as well.
Song: Jimi Hendrix, “All Along the Watch Tower”

How would you state your most important value in life?
I love to build great bonds with different people every single day. I display great integrity and honesty while learning and educating individuals to help promote the best path to success. Being a trainer, I enjoy changing people’s life mentally and physically throughout a year or helping people break barriers every single day. I wake up with the motivation to fuel others to surpass limits they feel as if they are impossible. My most important value in life is to educate yourself and others along the way.
Thanks, Kyle. Working with you has been a true high point. Can’t wait for the next time.
