IFBB Pro & Trainer of Champions (aka...The Godfather of Bodybuilding)
I got my start in the weight room as an All American college gymnast. After gravitating to Olympic lifting and power lifting, I entered a bodybuilding contest on a whim, winning my class. I competed as an IFBB Pro during the 1980s, but found my true calling training others.
As member of the Mecca – Gold’s Gym Venice Beach – since 1978, I have been training celebrities, movie starts and professional athletes from a variety of sports full-time since 1987. People call me the Godfather of Bodybuilding, but I just like to help people reach their goals in any sport.
