Sagi kalev

The hottest new bodybuilder-model on the scene this year isn't really a newcomer to either bodybuilding or professional modeling. But he's taken his already exceptional physique to new levels of leanness and symmetry, adapted his diet so he can be ready for photoshoots in a matter of weeks, and rearranged his priorities to focus on his career.
Sagi Kalev, a 34-year-old native of Israel, moved to the United States in 1993 to pursue his dreams in bodybuilding and modeling. After 12 years in the U.S., those dreams are coming true.

Sagi, who has done numerous photo shoots in California during the past two years for Muscle and Fitness, Ironman, Men's Workout and Hardcore Muscle magazines, is part owner of a downtown Dallas, Texas gym where he also does personal training and nutritional counseling. His past includes both bodybuilding and modeling, starting with his weight training as a teenager in Israel "to do something different and build my self-confidence," Sagi said.
After a four-year tour of duty in the Army, which included participation in Desert Storm, Sagi resumed his weightlifting and bodybuilding interests, capturing two "Mr. Israel" titles in the process. He also began his college education, which culminated with a degree in physical education and a minor in nutrition from the University of Central Florida.
In 1996, while living in California, Sagi started modeling once again after a scout "rediscovered" him at a local gym. He landed on the cover of Men's Workout magazine and inside several other bodybuilding-fitness publications as a result. He also made guest appearances on Baywatch and The Young and the Restless television series.
Sagi's modeling aspirations got another major boost the same year when Spencer Gifts, one of the largest retail gift store chains in the U.S., signed a four-year contract with him as their spokesmodel. In fact, Sagi's distinctive images are still marketed by Spencer Gifts in the form of greeting cards, gift bags and keychains.
His last bodybuilding competitions were local shows in 1998 and 1999 in Texas, where he won several first-place trophies.

Sagi decided to get back into physique modeling in the spring of 2003. Since that time, modeling offers have come in quickly, including a contract with Impact Nutrition and Lifewave as a representative and spokesperson for the companies. Sagi is now prominently featured in Impact and Lifewave advertisements. In addition he has appeared on four Muscle & Fitness covers in 2003-2004 as well as coveres of Hardcore Muscle, Ironman and Men's Workout.
Sagi's unique ancestry -- which includes roots in Hungary, Poland and the Middle East -- gives him a distinctive international look that's hard to pin down at first glance.

When he's not working out, training clients, or traveling to and from photo shoots, Sagi enjoys basketball, soccer, ping pong, cycling, swimming, hiking, good food, good movies, and constructive partnerships and friendships. Because nutrition is a crucial part of his modeling success, cooking has become one of his special interests.
Sagi's diet, as one might expect, depends on the timing and the nature of his photo shoots, which include magazine covers, exercise demonstrations, video productions, and assorted features -- almost anything except pornography and total nudity, which he says are off-limits.

Staying focused on diet and training in the midst of photo sessions, work responsibilities and a personal life depends on self-evaluation and discipline, Sagi said.
"My military background and my occasional training with professional bodybuilders keeps me focused, disciplined and motivated," he said. "It really bothers me when other people can't exercise discipline but still want to achieve great results from their training and diet. It takes a lot of hard work. When I finish a good workout and a hard day at the gym, I start thinking immediately about how to improve and get even better."
Sagi usually trains four or five days a week. At a height of 5-8 and a weight of between 200 and 210 pounds, he's right in the middle of the weight range for traditional bodybuilders.
