You might think that the participants in Mr. Senior’s election are over fifty years old, but nothing could be further from the truth. Luciano Krentin is a young thirty-five year old, but is already seen as one of the top officials in the Mr. election. Oude Noorden’s personal trainer has to get out of his comfort zone in all areas before competing.
Age and appearance are not the most important thing for a Rotterdam personal trainer. “It’s about more than just your looks, I want to inspire people to get the most out of life in all areas,” says Luciano. A few months ago, he was approached via Instagram if he wanted to participate in the competition because according to the organization he would be a very good fit. Not surprising, because Luciano is a personal trainer and is active as a model. It’s going so well that he quit his job as a sales coach and now works full time as a fitness coach and model. However, it is not only about a beautiful face and a good body, because helping people feel good is his main goal. He is also actively participating in “Save the Children” as part of the competition.
“We learn how to apply makeup for photo shoots or appear on TV, which is very normal in this world. For example, last week I was suddenly in a store on Coolsingel to get my makeup done.”
a bit scary
Participation in the competition is completely outside Luciano’s comfort zone in several areas. “I only knew such an election from TV, it was a bit far from my bed show. I’ve always been interested in modeling, so I thought why not. ”He had to swallow when he was supposed to be put in the ‘senior’ category because of his age.” I don’t feel old, even if it’s just a name. We learn a lot from each other.” Both adults and children who participate in the elections attend joint workshops such as walking the catwalk and applying make-up. The latter was also a whole new experience for Luciano. “We learn how to apply make-up in photo sessions or appear on TV, and that is something So normal in this world. For example, last week I was suddenly in a store on Coolsingel to get my makeup done.”
Luciano is the only participant from Rotterdam and will be in the final elections for Mr. Senior Holland on 11 September. If he wins, he can represent the Netherlands during the international version.
