Few people ever embody perfection like Fabio. His muscles, handsome face and long hair reflect the fantasy of many women, and his appearances on television and in movies ensure that every American and many people around the world know who he is, no last name required. (It’s Lanzoni if you were wondering.)

Fabio became famous by posing on the covers of romance novels. He even wrote a few of his own. These days, he has his own line of nutritional products. He didn’t get to be so buff and good looking just by luck. He eats well, stays fit, and takes care of himself. Now he helps others do the same.

We recently met Fabio when he was signing autographs and taking photos with fans while touring Whole Foods stores in the US. He was happy to help us teach some health and body building slang, and tell us about how he learned English.

很少有人像法比奥 (Fabio) 那样体现完美。他的肌肉、英俊的面孔和长发,反应了许多女性对男人的完美幻想,他在电视和电影中的表演确保每个美国人无需知道他的姓氏便知道他是谁。(如果你想知道,他的姓氏是兰佐尼 (Lanzoni)。)
法比奥通过为爱情小说拍摄封面而成名。他甚至写过一些自己的爱情小说。现在,他拥有了自己的营养产品线。他能够如此强壮、高大和英俊,并非仅凭运气。他吃得很好,保持健康,细心地照顾自己。现在他帮助别人保持身体健康和健美。
我们最近看到法比奥在美国全有食品 (Whole Foods) 商店旅游时,为粉丝签名并合影留念。他十分高兴地告诉了我们一些健康和健身的俚语,并向我们讲述了他学习英语的方法。

Fabio:  Hi, this is Fabio, and this is English, baby!

Jason:  Fabio recently toured Whole Foods stores in the US to promote his new protein product.

Fabio:  It’s the highest quality whey protein today in America.

Jason:  We asked him to teach an English lesson about fitness. What does it mean to be fit? What does that term mean?

Fabio:  Fit is like to be in shape. It’s very simple. Unfortunately, God gives you only one body. The body you’re born with is the body you’re going to die with, and when you really take care of your body, your body will take care of you. It’s almost like a car, if you put the best gasoline in your car and you do the oil change, your car pretty much is not going to leave you in the middle of the street. The same with your body. If you really take care with good food, healthy food, and great supplements, high quality supplements, it’s amazing. You really don’t need to be a scientist to understand your body. When you give the highest quality protein to your body, every single cell reproduces better and faster. It doesn’t matter if it’s your hair, your skin, your muscle density, your bones, your organs, your tendons, your nails, everything regenerates because of protein. Those are the building blocks.

Jason:  You’re a little bit more than fit. One might say that you’re buff or built. Could you tell us what those terms mean?

Fabio:  Normally when you have bigger muscles than average, you’re buff. Simple as that.

Jason:  You learned English as a second language. Can you tell me about how you learned English?

Fabio:  Just living in the United States. Just talking to people and doing business.

Jason:  Was it ever hard?

Fabio:  In the beginning. Because normally what you do is you think in your own native language, so it’s very hard. You have to think and try to translate. That’s why sometimes you hear many people, you can see they’re thinking and they try to translate. First they formulate a sentence and after try to translate from their language to the other language and it doesn’t make sense. You have totally to flip, to switch the way of thinking to be able to speak another language.

Jason:  Definitely. That’s good advice. Thanks, Fabio!

Fabio:  English, baby!

Fabio is very famous for being strong and good looking. Anyone can be fit if you exercise and eat healthy food, but Fabio isn’t just in shape. He’s buff. He has big muscles.

For many years, Fabio has appeared on the covers of books and on TV. Now he has a line of whey protein. He says supplements are a good way to take care of your body. He looks like he knows what he’s talking about.

Fabio is from Italy. He says he learned English when he got to the US, and the hardest part was training himself to think in English.
How do you stay in shape? Do you think in English?

It’s difficult to get capital from both of these sources, and truly they’re simply semantic contrasts of saying the same thing. A funding firm/reserve is an organization that profits by putting resources into exceptional organizations. http://www.oneidauniversity.com/

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
