Did someone order a football body fit for the NFL catalogue, Men’s Health and Men’s Exercise? Beefy enough for a romance novel? You’re in luck. 33-year-old trainer, model and actor James Rizzo stocks it in bulk and delivers.

Teased for being lanky at age 15, this sexy Italian-American started working out. Now at 6’2” and 210 with a 46-inch chest, no one is laughing. In fact, personal training clients pay for the privilege, and big-name photographers clamor to get this hunk out of his clothes and in front of their cameras.
