Jeffrey Rose ready for stardom
There is no denying that Jeffrey Rose has what it takes to become one of Jamaica's top male models. Although sex appeal may be subjective and is oftentimes in the eyes of the beholder, Rose is definitely attractive and exudes a high level of confidence and determination to make it onto the big stage.
His classy appeal, magnetism and seductive aura combined with raw natural talent challenges you to make that eclectic connection, and appreciation for his perfectly sculpted body.
Rose, who delved into a lifestyle of health and fitness just four years ago, has found the transition quite rewarding. "I was always slim, but I was not healthy, so I decided to make a change. I started researching on how to change my diet and the importance of fitness. I realised that changing my lifestyle was 80 per cent diet and 20 per cent working in the gym," he said.
Eating healthy, he said, is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin, or depriving yourself of the foods you love. Rather, he said, it's about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and stabilising your mood.
"It is through diet and exercise that you will get results if you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you eat foods that are not good for you, you will not see any results. Some people get the concept wrong and when they do not see the results, they want they get demotivated and stop," Rose said.
In his quest to maintain a ripped muscular and toned body, Rose's routine has him in the gym on a regular basis. "Even when I get an injury, I wait until I am fully recovered then I start all over again," he said.
To achieve a lean, rock-hard body, Rose maintains that in order to have the ideal mass, you must mix weight training with cardio exercises. "Weight training is where you get the bulk, and cardio is where you work to rid yourself of the calories. You also have to come out of your comfort zone and push yourself to the limit in order to maintain fitness," Rose said.
Rose, who has had a minor modelling stint with Saint International, was grateful for the exposure and credits founder Deiwght Peters for giving him the opportunity to bolster his confidence for future campaigns.
He has also been featured in several music video's with a number of dancehall artiste's including Spice, Ishawna and Sabrina the Diva.
Gerald Gordon, winner of The Gleaner Company (Media) Limited's Capturing Kingston Photo Competition has been working with Rose on several projects and is one of the key motivators to Rose's continued quest to enter the fashion/modelling industry.
"It takes dedication and persistence to actually get what you want and Jeffrey has been working hard and deserves to be recognised by persons in the industry," he said.
Rose is interested in building his portfolio and is positive that his hard work will eventually pay off. He is looking forward to continued success and working with top companies and executives in the fashion/modelling industry.
