Jono Castano Acero and Luke Zocchi are two of the most in demand celebrity fitness trainers when it comes to achieving incredible physical transformations.

So it’s no wonder, the pair have teamed up to help launch a new plant-based meat and chicken alternatives.

Jono, 29, is seen flaunting his bulging biceps in a new series of promotional photos to promote The Alternative Meat Co.’s new range.

Jono’s host of A-list clients include Home and Away star Pia Miller, ex-Bachelor Matty ‘J’ Johnson and Jodi Gordon.

Luke, 36, best known for transforming the Thor star’s physique says the key barrier people come up against is the misconception that you need to eat meat to be strong and beefy.

‘I’m all about doing and eating what you love. Fueling your body doesn’t always need to be about how much meat you eat,’ Luke explained.

‘Cutting out some of your meat each week and getting in your veggies is just as important.’

Back in 2018, Zocchi explained that Chris Hemsworth ‘went almost 95 per cent vegan’ while filming Thor and Avengers.

In an interview with Men’s Fitness Magazine, he said, ‘Through talking to me, [Chris] is somewhat adapting, I think, to eating more vegetables and plant-based stuff.’ 

‘We tried to see if he could keep the muscle being vegan, and it actually surprised me as well because we’re all in this mentality of “gotta eat animal protein, protein, protein,’ but you can get a lot of protein from beans.”‘

Luke and Jono’s collaboration comes weeks after Luke offered fans the chance to learn Chris’ workout secrets in a video of the star demonstrating his intense workout regimen. 

The video, which was filmed to promote Chris’ new fitness app Centr, shows Luke coaching Chris through a range of routines including heel taps, bent-over rows with heavy dumbbells and kettle bell squats.
