Parramatta’s Ajay Sharan has made through the first cut and is now one of six finalists in the Men’s Health Man competition.
The branch and service manager consultant, 36, was chosen as one of ‘‘Australia’s top blokes’’ for the contest Men’s Health Magazine, now in its fifth year.
The contest aims to identify men who strive to excel in all aspects of life: work, relationships, fitness, health and grooming.
Mr Ajay said he was a positive, motivated and passionate guy.
‘‘I was told I had a good look by Olly Foster [English fitness model] at the Sydney Fitness Expo this year so I thought I’d give the competition a go,’’ he said.
He took part in a studio photo shoot for the magazine and a series of challenges designed to test the contestants’ wit and fitness.
The winner will be announced at a gala event in Sydney on December 3.
