Jesse Metcalfe on Workouts, Plant-Based Protein, and Action Movie Stunts

During an east coast visit, actor and song writer Jesse Metcalfe stopped by FOCUS NYC to meet us for a workout video and discussion. We talked about how he’s gotten (and stayed) in such great shape over the years, his perspective on food and diet, and how it all comes together in his day-to-day life—including in his career as an actor.

Metcalfe is a firm believer in multi-joint, complex exercises that train multiple body parts at once—squats, deadlifts, and presses. He’s also keen on the growing plant-based protein trend—saying his body composition has adapted well to it, in addition to making him feel healthier overall. When asked about how fitness applies to his real-life adventures—Metcalfe explains his roles in action movies where peak physical fitness and atheletism are a must.
