Yes, Tim Tebow is 6’3″ and 244 lbs. of solid muscle. Wherever he goes, women try to fix him up with their daughters – or try to nab him for themselves.

It’s those looks that inspired PEOPLE to select Tebow as one of 2014’s Sexiest Men Alive. But for the former football star turned TV commentator, sexiness is about more than a handsome face or a good body.

“Of course I want to look nice and have a good appearance,” he tells PEOPLE. “But more than the outer shell, I want people to want to be around me for my heart. To me, it’s especially important to have a heart for kids who are hurting. Being able to make a difference is something that people should love, and that’s something that’s sexy about people.”

So, is Tebow anywhere close to settling down?

Maintaining His Body

Although Tebow isn’t currently playing in the NFL, he still prioritizes his physical fitness with cardio and weight training. During his PEOPLE interview, he opted for steamed salmon over steak.

“I train about six days a week,” he says. “I’m training at the same intensity as I did when I was playing football. I’ve done it for my entire life and I love it. I try to be active, and to keep my body in the best shape I can possibly be in.”

“Being physically fit helps me think better and feel better,” he continues. “I only have this one body. I want to make the most impact that I can; taking care of my body helps me help others. That’s a big reason why I do it.”

Leaving a Legacy

In addition to his work as a commentator for the SEC Network, Tebow spotlights feel-good human interest stories on Good Morning America. An outspoken Christian, he administers the Tim Tebow Foundation, a organization that as an adoption aid program, builds “Timmy’s Playrooms” in children’s hospitals around the world, grants wishes to sick children and teens, and has built a five-story hospital in Davao City, Philippines.

“I hope that when I’m 90 years old, I’ve accomplished a legacy that isn’t all about me. I hope it’s a legacy about the people who our foundation helps. We’re about to open a hospital in the Philippines. I can’t wait. I was born there. We’ll have this hospital where we can help kids who are hurting; healing them physically but encouraging them emotionally and spiritual as well. We can make a difference in their lives.”

    The sexiest man alive reads a vacuum manual – and is sexy doing it.

    Good God please help us.

    I am embarrassed to be a woman nowadays. I can’t believe the amount of women I come across who waste their time with this “People” type of nonsense.

    I really think it is time to take away the woman’s right to vote as there are too many “airhead” women in America.
