Nathan Barnett Herrera

Our male model for the What’s Hot fashion issue isn’t just a stylish guy, he’s also a CrossFit instructor at CrossFit Cayman, located in Camana Bay. We guess that’s why he’s in such great shape and looks terrific in everything he wears.

We managed to snag a quick five minutes with him to learn more about what makes Nathan tick, and discovered that even though fitness is very important to him, there’s something else that he’s really passionate about.

What’s Hot: Tell us about CrossFit Cayman
Nathan Herrera: I’ve been an instructor for about three years, and I really enjoy it. Of course Camana Bay is a great location for it, as our interior space is enhanced by the outdoor landscaping and pedestrianized areas.
One of the main benefits of CrossFit is the group training and social aspect of the workouts. They challenge you to do more than you would on your own.

WH:    What other interests do you have outside fitness?
NH:    Music. I’ve always had a love of music since I was young. I started playing the guitar about 24 years ago, and even though I can play most string instruments, the guitar has definitely been my focus. Flamenco music is my main passion, although I also play classical, Brazilian, jazz…lots of different genres.

WH:    What clothes do you feel most comfortable wearing?
NH:    Definitely jeans, T-shirt, flip-flops. I lean towards surf and skate wear most of the time – it’s cool, comfortable and fits my lifestyle.

You can see Nathan strumming his stuff at Grand Old House on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.; and XQs on Wednesdays from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m.
