One thing that Jake admits to being passionate about is playing football, the sport he has loved since he was a kid. He says that playing this sport helped him lose the extra pounds he had while growing up, "If you're the fat one in football, you're always the last one to finish. I didn't want to be the struggling kid."
Football, coupled with a supersets workout regimen that entails two different exercises done consecutively, has given the young actor maximum results in the area he is most focused on—his abdomen and lower back. He explains that strengthening his core area helped him with his role in Palos, which required a lot of fight scenes and physical stunts. "Your abs and your lower back are what keep your body together," he explains.
Jake proves to be more than just a pretty boy as he shares with Men's Health more tips on how to keep a fit body and a sound mind. "It's your objective in life to bring out the best in people—to bring out their full potential," Jake ends. A bankable actor, and Men's Health magazine's cover guy this May, Jake Cuenca is nowhere near slowing down.
