Some models that wear menswear items have interesting lives in addition to muscular physiques. Diego Sechi, a WBFF pro male fitness model from Italy is an example. Diego has a strong brain as well as a fit body.
I first saw Diego in some behind the scenes video for a photoshoot. He struck me as a guy with a good sense of humor and a great six-pack of abs.
According to Diego’s Instagram, he is an online fitness coach and registered nutritionist. In addition to his gym training, Diego has a bachelor’s degree, human nutrition, from King’s College London. At the time of this post (January 2020), Diego is in the MSc sports nutrition program at St. Mary’s University, Twickenham.
Later, I learned that he also enjoys choreography. The choreography assists Diego in creating posing routines with a nice flow.
Diego provides his background at his website. There is also a video that provides background information at Fit Media Channel on YouTube.
In August 2020, Diego posted a video answering questions from his subscribers, followers, and fans.
Diego returned to YouTube on April 10, 2020.

Workout from Home or Outdoors
Diego is an online trainer and exercise enthusiast. He provided a metabolic bodyweight workout that people new to fitness could perform at home.
The interval workout is the following:
40 seconds work, 20 seconds rest
- High Knees
- Half Burpees
- Squat Jumps
- Alternated Lunges
- Knee to elbow
- Butt Kicks
- Push Ups
- Hip Thrusts
Workout until Failure
Diego did a challenge-type workout for the “Workout until Failure” YouTube channel. The purpose of the YouTube channel is to show physique athletes challenging themselves with exercise in a heated room. The athletes on the channel are well-trained fitness models.
While the workouts would be challenging and exhausting to typical people, the featured athletes seem to be challenged but the viewer can tell that their bodies were hungry for the exercise and welcomed the challenge.
Diego did not disappoint in his video. Even with the challenging pandemic times during 2020, Diego maintained his pro-level muscular physique. Diego started with his morning cardio (featured on his Instagram) and then after that did a circuit style workout–three rounds of squats, lateral raises, and biceps curls, all with a set of dumbbells. Diego ended with planks for the abdominals.
Even with this hard workout, Diego seemed to be able to workout more.
According to the Greatest Physiques blog, Diego participated in Greco-Roman wrestling as a child. According to his website, he participated in other sports as well.
Sport has been with me since my childhood, especially thanks to my natural physical form, already in charge of sports. So, I had the opportunity to explore various sports: fencing, boxing, horseback, riding, hockey, skiing, athletics. Especially in the latter, I attracted the attention during the youth school championship of 100-meters without hurdles, where I recorded a time of 11:04 seconds!Diego’s website
