Where are some of the most interesting places you've roamed, brother?
Mostly in Canada, I've worked in over a dozen different cities, as well I've visited Florida while playing baseball. Of course, the highlight was my trip to Hawaii earlier this year. It is the most incredible place on Earth.

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. Recently, Stephen and I had a chance to talk and we discussed how bodybuilding found him, who helped him finally capture his pro card, and what life is like away from the stage. You can read it all here, in this Rx Muscle exclusive interview.
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.

Jesse Fabricant: Relentless
I’d like you to do something. For a moment, close your eyes and think back to junior high and high school. Try to remember how exciting life was during that time. During those years it seems like each day brings us a new experience. From the pep rallies and prom dates, to the late nights with foggy details and questionable decision making, those years and those moments become etched in our minds, and we often cherish them as some of our fondest memories. It’s that cornucopia of experiences that become the bricks and mortar of our adult personalities, forming the foundation of who we’ll become.

Vlad Petric Has His Sights Set on NPC Nationals!
