Today on the blog we speak to fitness instructor Alex Kitchen, who has returned to his home town in Newcastle after working and travelling in Australia for 2 years. We are very excited to have him back in the North East!
What do you enjoy most about being a model?
I always enjoy how each job is usually so different and is often something you haven’t done too often, so it pushes you out of your comfort zone!
What is your career highlight to date?
My career highlight would probably be doing a TV commercial for Ministry of Sound.
When I was a kid I wanted to be…
When I was a kid I wanted to be a professional footballer. I was part of Newcastle Academy from u9s-u21s and then I played at pro level in Scotland for 2 years.
In five year’s time I hope to be…
Five years from now I hope to be happy, that’s the main thing. I would like to be successful in my career choices, own a property and have the funds to travel often! 
My biggest celebrity crush is…
My biggest celebrity crush is Shakira.
If I could travel to anywhere in the World it would be:
I would travel to Iguaźa Falls in Argentina. I’ve always wanted to go to South America, the weather is better and there’s some amazing sights!
My dream brand to work for would be:
I would love to work for Nike, simply because I love their gym clothes and trainers. I love sports and fitness; that’s what they usually represent so it would fit well. 
Who is your inspiration for being in this industry?
The models I see on TV commercials inspire me the most. It just gives me a sense that there are opportunities world wide to be taken because every company that needs a TV advertisement usually requires models. I also like the work ASAP Rocky has been doing, he’s just an all around cool man.
