BIG Frank Buzzo- Member of the Month (June 2017)
If you have never met Frank in person, you wouldn’t believe a 65-year-old could have his pecs. Frank weighs 265 lbs. but by no means is he fat, he is rock solid upper body thick as steel muscle. His body is as impressive as his strength. The 1st time I met Frank he was bench pressing 225 lbs. for 52 reps.
He holds the title in the bench press WNPF, State, National and World from the ages of 40-44 which is quite the feat.
He also has done a seated shoulder press with 405 lbs., a triple in the incline barbell press with 500 lbs. and 605 lb. benches raw. I have been training over 60 years and Frank without a doubt is the strongest man over 50 (he’s 65) I have ever met. And… I really don’t think he’s hit his peak yet.
Most importantly to Frank is family, community and his friends that love him. He states that he inherits his strength from God not steroids which he instills in all he meets.
Diego Alvarez – Member of the Month (July 2017)
Diego has stepped out of the box when it comes to his workout routine and it certainly has worked. After every set, he walks the entire gym, even the stairs, incorporating a cardiovascular strength building routine. Diego is taking a very scientific approach to his training, and I appreciate his dedication and discipline. I myself have used some of his methods to train my clients with weight problems because they work. I might add Diego has complete control of his body weight, which I admire.
Dana Allen – Member of the Month (May 2017)
I first Met Dana Allen about four years ago at the old Island Fitness across the street from it’s new location. I asked him, “So when is the contest?” His reply, “Oh I haven’t competed since the eighties.”. that was four years ago and Dana still maintains that edge and is without a doubt the most consistent in shape body builder I have ever met. If you say Dana let’s see those abs… he will lift his shirt and there they are. Most body builders would kill for those rope like veins in his arms. At 57 years old I have seen him dead-lift 540 lbs and bench 555 lbs. Dana is always there to offer great advice to not only the new younger body builders but anyone who needs help or advice. With his deep baritone voice, it’s obvious he has plenty of natural testosterone and a real edge in body building.
Mike Green – Member of the Month (April 2017)
Mike owned and operated World Gym behind the Merritt Island Square Mall during the Eighties and Nineties. Mike is foremost known for his Karate career, he has won over 13 State and 3 National Championships. Mike has spent so much time in the gym it’s in his DNA, his magnificent smile and physical strength are second to none along with his strong faith in the Lord which helps him influence many young men that cross his path.
