David Perez trains on the track

This post is part of a series of Queerty interviews with models, trainers, dancers, and, well, people who can inspire the rest of us to stay in shape.

Name: David Perez, 24 (@perezworld_)

Occupation, besides training: I am a full-time payroll administrator for a car dealership.

Home: Palm Springs

Favorite Gym: My favourite gym for working out is EOS in Palm Desert.

Work Out Song: I listen to 21 savage and Bad Bunny station to pump me up before every lift.

Work-Out Foods: The best food to eat prior to a workout is zero per cent Greek yogurt, grits, blueberries and honey.

Favorite athletic outfit: The best outfit to wear when working out is clothes that makes you feel you look good in. So if you look in the mirror, you’re motivated to finish your workout.

How do you balance staying in shape and having fun? I balance having fun and staying in shape by surrounding myself with people who have the same goals and also by not indulging in foods that will keep me from achieving my goals.

Tip for staying in shape: Make your plan fit your life: A gym isn’t needed to stay fit or be healthy.
