Ryan Pateracki: Squat Life
Find me a top tier IFBB Pro who doesn’t bring a fantastic set of wheels to the stage. I don’t mean just any athlete who has a pro card and a subpar set of legs.

Stephen Frazier is Spreading the Gospel of Fitness
Famed author Sean Patrick once said, “What is generally recognized as great talent is, in almost all cases, the outward manifestation of a dedication to a process.”
At the 2012 USA Championships, Stephen Frazier’s years of dedication to the sport he loves finally manifested itself in the form of an IFBB Pro Card when he won the Superheavyweight Class, and made his dream come true.

Jacob Sumana, Spreading the Fitness Word!
For some of us, our love affair with the sport doesn’t appear as love at first sight. Instead, our adventure through the industry is a much more gradual process.
