FITNESS MODEL – MORRIS NDONYE

I recently came across these group called The Four Horsemen who are the fitness gurus at of this generation. At 22,they have become an inspiration to their peers and have decided to use their love for exercise to help the community. I got really interested in their cause and decided to interview them just to give you the push you need to get that sexy tummy or sculpted abs .

Morris

 Morris Nonye Wambua, 22, full time fitness model and actor. “Playboy”. That is what they all call him.

How did you join?

MORRIS:It was brought together by Solomon. We are friends since high school  and when he told about it, I thought it was a worthy cause and I joined. H met Geff on Facebook ,then Geff reached out to John Bosco , his childhood friend and training buddy. That is how The Four  Horsemen came to be.

Why did you chose the name FOUR HORSEMEN?

It basically describes the strengths we got: passion, drive, strength, team work and  great physique, just like a Mustang horse.

What are you hoping to achieve?

We are hoping to inspire others. Helping others to see the importance of working out and maintaining an active lifestyle especially in this ‘Junk food generation’. For the ones already working out, we are hoping to show them how to take better care of their body’s and how to tone up.

What is the feedback so far?

The experience is amazing .The kind of feedback we have received in the past couple of months has been overwhelming and humbling. We have been getting a lot of followers on our new Facebook page and even getting people asking how they can join.

What is your fitness secret?
Watch your DIET ; eating healthy. Make sure your diet is full of organic foods. We chose to go the old fashioned way and have our weights training and workout regiments,which include a lot outdoor exercises. 
1476309_267017746781963_376761929_nWhats your daily fitness routine?
I eat a lot of  fruits .My diet consists of beans and white meat and a glass of milk.I go to the gym in the morning and in the evening, I work out for at least 30 minutes HIIT ( High Intensity Interval Training),drink a lot of water  and have loads of sleep.I go to the gym  at least twice a week.

524497_263220217161716_1332796550_nGive us a few fitness tips?

Watch what u eat. Not everything u see on the shelves is good for you. Do a lot of cardio exercises because it helps burn fat and to reduce your chances of getting heart and lung problems. If you do not have a gym near by, other options are jogging ,swimming or Zumba.

Do you love extreme sports?Which is your favorite?

I am a very simple guy but Solomon and  John Bosco are adrenaline junkies so they like to go to Sagana Rapids Camp for bungee jumping.

WHO WILL BE VOTED THE BEST EAST AFRICAN MODEL

The Swahili Fashion Week is one of the biggest Fashion Weeks in Africa. Being a regional event, it attracts designers,journalists ,models and fashion enthusiasts from all over Africa and beyond.

Every year they reward the top models , designers,fashion journalists,stylists and Fashion Tv shows in the region.

I want to highlight on one category in particular;

BEST EAST AFRICAN MODEL

This is because this year, the competition is very stiff especially because the 5 nominees are from both Kenya (3) and Uganda (2).

This is a very hard task for the voters since all these models are beautiful,fierce on the catwalk and have had very successful modelling careers in their countries.From gracing magazine covers,to being on many runways across the region and also being friendly faces we can all relate to.

Last year’s winner was JO KISILA , a very tall, well toned and alluring  STRUT IT AFRIKA  model  from Kenya.
