Abel Albonetti grew up in Hernando, MS, and began lifting weights at 14. He was homeschooled, so he never got to play sports in school. Instead, he lifted. Around 17, he began training in a YMCA. By chance, a modeling agent discovered him in the Y one day, which led to modeling work.

As he continued to hit the gym, he transitioned to fitness modeling and started a Facebook page. Today, that page (@abelalbonetti) has nearly two million likes. You can also find him on Instagram (@abelbodygym) and YouTube (

He now lives in Austin, TX, with his wife and his boxer, Gainer.
