Oc­cu­pa­tion: Per­sonal Trainer, Op­ti­mal Fit­ness Age: 29

Many peo­ple take up ex­er­cise to lose weight, but not Re­gan An­der­sen. “My fresh­man year of high school, I was a tall, skinny kid with lit­tle skill but a lot of love for the game of bas­ket­ball,” he re­calls. To bulk up to play in col­lege, which he did at Cal State, Fullerton, An­der­sen de­vel­oped a struc­tured eat­ing plan and a reg­u­lar work­out sched­ule, in­creas­ing from 185 pounds to 245, at 6 feet 7 inches. “I told my­self I was go­ing to get stronger and not be pushed around by any­body,” says the Milwaukee res­i­dent. His rou­tine to­day is care­fully struc­tured. “I try to get all ma­jor mus­cle groups (legs, back, chest) in twice a week,” he says. “I also make sure to spread the days out so I am not over­do­ing a cer­tain mus­cle group. I also have one full rest day each week.... On those ‘off days,’ get your sleep,” he ad­vises. “Sleep equals mus­cle re­cov­ery.”
