Élan Sorrell

I recently had an opportunity to speak with the handsome model and actor Élan Sorrell.

Élan Sorrell is a model, actor, and instructor at Flywheel Sports based in Los Angeles, California. Sorrell inspires me personally and professionally. Professionally, I am inspired by how Sorrell has successfully diversified his brand. Personally, I am inspired by Sorrell’s style, physique, and passion for his craft.

What would be the title of Sorrell’s life story and who would play him in a movie?

“Well, I’m an actor, so honestly I like nobody but myself to play me. The title of my story would be just a kid on his quest for greatness,” said Sorrell.

Sorrell’s most memorable year was 2013.

“Memorable year, probably 2013. I would say that’s the year, I decided to stop pursuing things that other people wanted me to do, and start pursuing what I was passionate about,” said Sorrell.

Sorell enjoys the freedom that comes from being an actor.

“What I like most, the freedom. The freedom to create, and be whatever I want to be depending on the character that I am playing. To bring my own emotions, ideas, and past experiences into that role. To be able to bring truth to something that is fiction,” said Sorrell.

Sorrell is also a flywheel sports instructor.

“My job is essentially to take a client and give them an opportunity to participate in an energized somewhat personal training structured class. So, I teach clients, high-intensity interval training, so the basis of that is strength, endurance, power, balance, stability and just overall core endurance,” said Sorrell.

“I’ve been rolling with Jockey for quite some time, I guess boxer briefs,” said Sorrell on his underwear preference.

One of Sorrell’s most favorite modeling gigs was doing an interactive experience for San Diego Comic Con, WestWorld Live Experience back in 2017.

If Sorrell could host a Ted Talk on any topic, it would be on fear.

“It would be on fear, and how clipping it can be and motivating it can be. Fear is something that everybody no matter what your background or upbringing encounters at some point of their life,” said Sorrell.

If Sorell could have a conversation with anyone died or alive, it would be Albert Einstein.

“Probably, Albert Einstein. I am really curious to know whether he realized the impact of his theories, philosophies and just his general intelligence when he was still alive. Everybody considers him a genius, one of the greatest minds of any generation, and I still wonder how it was to be in that position and still create so much that he did on a daily basis.

Jockey

Jockey has been a trailblazer in men’s underwear ever since creating the men’s brief in 1934. Eight decades later Jockey is still showing them while expanding their family.

By: Joshua Conner

I first became a fan of Jockey, after I learned about how they pioneered the men’s brief. I really became a fan of the brand, after they sponsored the Men’s Health Ultimate Guy Search contest, it was a collaboration of my two favorite things men’s attire and Men’s Health Magazine.

Jockey is an industry leader in men’s underwear, activewear, thermals and culture. They are sold in numerous retailers including Macy’s, Lord & Taylor, Belk, & Target to name a few. They have inspired the masses with there Show Em & Jockey Being Family campaigns. Jockey has also had a diverse repertoire of brand ambassadors. Baltimore Orioles All Star Jim Palmer,  American model & actor Aaron O’Connell, former football quarterback & baseball outfielder for the New York Mets Tim Tebow, USMC Vet Chris Van Etten, Actor Remi Adeleke & most recently Pro Dog Rescuer Zach Skow. Jockey also has a great social media presence, with over 73,000 followers on Instagram.

Kennedy Gilbertson is a Jesus follower, father, financial professional, freelance: fashion, fitness, and runway model, internationally published & avid wearer of Jockey underwear.

Gilbertson first Jockey product was the underwear three years ago, but what is his preference?

“Boxer briefs,” he says.

How does Gilbertson #showem?

“I guess how I show em is by how I conduct myself in all my everyday affairs, how I live, and the message that I give to people. I mean, you follow me on my social media,  I try to be as: transparent, honest, and open as I can about my life-like my past & what’s currently going on in my life. Really that’s the thing about life, it happens, whether that’s good, bad or indifferent. I think with the social media age we are in today, a lot of people try to paint a pretty picture that everything is rainbows and butterflies and that’s just not true, it’s not real life.

I think by being authentic, transparent and showing people who you really are, they can relate to you. I think that helps break down barriers and cross over boundaries and that helps connect with people,” said Gilbertson.

If Gilbertson could try another Jockey product, what would it be?

“You know, living in Minnesota, thermals would probably be a good this time of year. I could say probably sleepwear or activewear. My daughter gives me a hard time, being a fashion and fitness model, because I rarely wear the clothes. I rotate about 3 shirts, t-shirts, shorts and activewear. I have a closet full of clothes, but I am always looking for something comfortable. I’m at the office during the day and at the gym, at night, I’m with the kids, so I like being in comfortable clothes. So I think athleisure or sleepwear, something that’s comfortable,” said Gilbertson.
