We met and shot Patrick Roddy in 2014 at the Kentucky Open where he competed in NPC Physique and shot him again at the Kentucky Muscle in 2016. By then he had switched to Classic Physique. Shots from both those shows are included in his portfolio and the progress he's made over the two year span is evident. For now, he's taking a break from competing to put on size. We'd been talking about a portfolio shoot ever since that first encounter in 2014 and finally got it done earlier this year. It was worth the wait as he's a terrific model and a very cool guy. Enjoy his interview and photos and contact us if you're interested in working with him. We hope to work with him again, so expect an update.

Interview with this Month’s Featured Model: Patrick Roddy
How did you get into modeling?
“Get into” is probably a stretch in all honesty, but as focused on my physique as I am, I figured it could be something to explore. I knew JC from a few shows that I competed in, and so I figured why not give it a shot.
What are your goals in the profession? Do you see it as a full-time occupation or an avocation?
Not a profession at this point, my career otherwise is doing really well, and I’ll be the first to admit I am not very comfortable in front of the camera.
Well, have to say that, for someone who’s not comfortable in front of the camera, you do really, really well. If it's an avocation, what are your other career goals?
I currently work for a bank and manage and manage over 150 people. My goal is to expand that further, while also driving towards my physique goals.
Looking as good as you do isn't easy. What are your training methods?
The very things you would think of in this category, focused efforts surrounding weak areas, hypertrophy repetition schemes, and I rest two days a week (YOU NEED REST).
How about diet?
It’s fairly relaxed in the offseason, leveraging flexible dieting, but I do stick to nutrient dense foods. All items are tracked, weighed, and altered based on how my body responds.
Do you plan to compete in bodybuilding or fitness shows or have you already?
I’ve competed in four or five amateur shows and twice at nationals thus far, and I plan to continue competing.
How do you kick back and relax?
I have two pit bulls, outside of working 60 hours a week, school, and sleep, all my time is spent with them.
How about some favorites?
Singer/Musician or Group: Don’t really have one, but I’ve enjoyed “A Day to Remember” for years.
Actor: No favorite here either, but I do enjoy Keanu Reeves, Dwayne Johnson, but I am not picky here.
Actress: Similar to the above, no true favorite, but Jennifer Lawrence has been good as of late.
Movie: John Wick Series as of this very moment
Song: Continuum by Erra has been my go to gym song at the moment.
Book: I am about halfway through the Digital Heretic series by Terry Schott.
How would you state your most important value in life?
Integrity has to be up there, staying genuine to yourself and others, and all while doing the right thing even when others are not watching.
Thanks for working with us, Patrick. Look forward to next time.
