Interview with Rolf Sanchez

10 June 2020|Lifestyle

Ever since Rolf participated in the television program 'De Beste Zangers' in the beginning of this year, his popularity in the Netherlands has exploded in a short time.

His duet with Emma Heesters "Pa Olvidarte" climbed the charts, reached the top 5 within three weeks and recently went platinum. His new single "Mas Mas Mas" has also been streamed more than 4 million times and Rolf has his first solo show in a sold out AFAS Live on October 3, 2020.

What do you do to stay healthy and fit? And what does health mean to you?

I try to exercise at least 5 to 6 times every week. There are times when it's just too busy and I can't stick to it. When this happens I always continue to eat as healthy as possible, because it makes me feel good.

Being healthy means everything to me. When I'm on track with my fitness and health, I can give everything during my performances and I have enough energy to be there for the people around me.

What is the biggest challenge for you to achieve a healthy lifestyle?

For me, it's finding the balance between giving my best performing as an artist, feeling fit and looking good. A year ago I tried to bring down my body fat percentage as low as possible for a photo shoot. I looked great, but I didn't feel great at all. I also had to keep performing during my shows, my agenda changes all the time and I am often invited to dinners and events.

So to find the right balance where I still feel fit and healthy is the biggest challenge for me, but I'm getting better at it!

What is something most people don't know about you?

That I am very impatient! And at the same time, sometimes I'm also insecure. As an artist, I sometimes think “am I good enough?”. When I receive positive feedback after a performance or the release of a new single, I can let it go and forget about it, but to be honest this thought does sometimes occupy my mind. What (almost) nobody knows is that I am afraid of water, the sea and ... fishing! Haha.

If we could take a look inside your fridge. What would we find in there?

Nowadays you would only find healthy things in my fridge. It used to be different, but now I love to eat as healthy as possible. The weekends are different though. Then I can really enjoy M&M cookies or vegan Ben & Jerry's ice cream. I am also a fan of Coca Cola Zero!

Finally: what's Rolf's favorite recipe that Orangefitters should really try?

Recently I discovered a new recipe that I absolutely love: sweet potato curry. You should really give this a try! You can find many recipes on how to make this on the internet.
