Last month, Tyrell introduced you to the five finalists vying to win the Men’s Health 2012 Cover Model contest. After tabulating all the votes, Charlie Powell beat out all the other sculpted studs to win the coveted October 2012 cover of the publication. The 32-year-old army captain garnered 4,270 votes, proving the magazine’s readers love a man in, and especially out of a uniform. Men’s Health Editor Toby Wiseman said the following about the October cover boy.
“Charlie epitomises the functional fitness we should all aspire to. Despite his overseas postings making regular training sometimes difficult, his dedication to his own health and fitness is an inspiration to the many time-poor men amongst us. If he can find the time and space to exercise, so can we.” Wiseman added “His training has left him fit and strong, as well as in excellent shape aesthetically. He personifies everything the Men’s Health man should be – a natural in front of the camera and a down-to-earth guy. The competition was very tough, but he is a more than worthy winner.”
While I do think Powell is an excellent choice, I was secretly hoping that Mitchell Tovee or Ben Mudge would take it. Those bitches are damn finnnnnnnne. Charlie Powell’s issue is available now. Pick it up to learn his and all the runner-ups’ training secrets. Check out a few pics of Powell from the issue below.
