Meet 25-year-old Yousef Khalil Ali, an elementary school art teacher turned model turned Perfect Fit cover star!

How long have you been a model?

About six years. I first started modelling for a photographer’s portfolio and then as social media started, people began to see my pictures and I became popular in my own right.

Who have you modelled for?

So far I have modelled for Harvey Nichols and Marks & Spencer plus brands such as Daniel Wellington watches, Ecco footwear, and Valecuatro.

How often do you go to the gym?

I go to Oxygen Jabriya six days a week. I first started working out aged 19 to stay in shape and so I look good when I take my shirt off! I used to have a trainer but now I read a lot and I have the experience to build my own routine.

What’s your favourite ‘cheat meal’?

I don’t have a cheat meal because I don’t diet, plus
I hate sweets! I think I don’t crave sweet food because
I don’t deny myself anything.

How do you maintain a healthy eating schedule?

I never diet. I eat whatever I want and I have a super-metabolism. In fact sometimes it’s a problem because my body burns so much food that I can’t always build muscle. It’s the curse of the bodybuilding world!

What is your favourite and least favourite body part to work out?

My favourite is my biceps because it gives me ‘the pump.’ I think everyone hates leg day! It’s really hard and stressful and everyone wears trousers anyway! I don’t work on my abs so much as they already look good.

What supplements do you use?

I drink protein and carbohydrate shakes and I also take BCAAs.

What has been your biggest success so far in your career?

Becoming a professional model.
