Gym Passion

At 6', 185 lbs., Laquan Jones was one heck of a high school basketball player. Now, at 28 years of age, the Georgia native is making his mark on the muscle model scene with an impressive  6th Place at last year's Model Universe in Florida. Professionally, Laquan worked overseas in both Iraq and Afghanistan for 4 years as a military contrator. But, he says, his passion is in the gym. "I feel in love with lifting weights and eating healthy," Laquan attests. "I only started competing less than a year ago, so I am working to make a name for myself on stage. I love motivating and inspiring people to workout and live a healthier life." Laquan will be back at the Fitness Universe Weekend in June.
