Teamm8 Mate For May: Marty Pappas


Marty Pappas has been named as the latest Mate of the Month model by Australian underwear brand teamm8. And just in time for the summer heat — Marty’s got a swimmer’s body.

Marty Pappas, 21, was born in Sydney, Australia. He’s currently ranked at number 23 in the Australia Open’s breaststroke category. No surprise there, look at the sculpted chest. Marty grew up around swimming pools in the Australian sun. But when it comes to fitness, he is also a certified personal trainer, yoga instructor, as well as a gym manager. In an interview with teamm8, Marty says his life’s ambition is to swim competitively for Australia’s national team, and to open his own fitness studio. Just looking at his body, you can tell he knows what he is talking about.

Everyone knows that bodies like Marty’s take a lot of work. And while Marty may look like he came down from Olympus, he tells teamm8 that he is constantly trying to improve himself. In the interview, Marty says, “[I] keep on finding ways to improve on areas that I need to work on in the pool, and continue learning and putting myself out there in the fitness world.”  

Check out Marty in the gallery below. Do you see any room for improvement, or is he pretty much perfect? Let us know in the comments below or by tweeting @underwearexpert.
