Sam Asghari is an Iranian-born personal trainer. Asghari, who is 28 years old as of this writing, moved to the United States when he was just 12 years old and quickly became a football star, eventually playing the game for Moorpark College in Los Angeles, reports Harper’s Bazaar.
Asghari eventually tried his hand at modeling thanks to his sister, Faye, noticing how fit he had become in his quest for health and becoming a trainer. At the time, Asghari’s sister had moved to the United States and convinced him to give it a go, reports Men’s Health.
When he was 21, he booked a runway show in Palm Springs, but bigger gigs sprung from there, including a Toyota Super Bowl ad and a big part in a music video for the “Fifth Harmony” tune “Work From Home.” From there, he landed a part on Britney Spears’ “Slumber Party” video and the two hit it off.
