Max Emerson strips off to talk health and fitness with Attitude

The model and actor gets physical in our new January issue.


Max Emerson's regular shirtless Instagram antics have attracted him a rabid online following, but with a film, a book and a web series on the way, there's more to the social media stud than meets the eye.

The Florida-born star, who's made TV appearances on LGBT-friendly shows like Glee and The Real O'Neals, might appear perfectly preened on his Instagram feed, but when it comes to staying in shape, the 29-year-old believes a healthy balance is the key.

"There's not just one thing," Max admits when asked about his fitness regime in the January issue of Attitude – available to download and in shops now.

"Work out for an hour a day. Eat a salad once a day. Usually that should cover it." "If you work out a lot then you can eat all the carbs you want because you're burning it off. I think a lot of people have a very sedentary lifestyle, so I'm really lucky that in my job I'm constantly on the go, walking non-stop."

He adds: "I think it just comes down to your everyday habits. When you go to the gym don't screw around when you're there; actually sweat, push yourself.

"Set yourself goals and measure your progress if you can."
