Devin Wiggins is a hopeless romantic. For one, his favorite place to hang out is the Tom Bradley International Airport "to watch loved ones melt into each other's arms when reuniting." And midway through his second year of studying Environmental Sciences in college (he wanted to be a park ranger), his heart swayed him in a new direction. "I met a bright and mildly eccentric girl that I was crazy about," he reveals. "Long story short, I switched my major so we could be in more classes together. I didn't know it at the time, but it would be one of the best decisions of my life because it led me to where I am today."

Today, Wiggins is a favorite at Justin Timberlake's favorite indoor fitness climbing studio, Rise Nation. "The energy there is crazy-fun," he adds. "Everyone leaves sweaty and I've never seen so many people happy with their results. As a trainer, it's everything I could want for myself and people seeking fitness."

It's easy to crush on this long-haired hunk, whose laid-back training style is a healthy mix of tough love and positive motivation: "Having fun while getting your ass handed to you is the perfect combination of success."
