On My 15th birthday, my sister Francine bought me a weight set. Then one week later around Christmas, I used my Christmas money to buy a bench to go with it. And the rest is history! I still remember playing “ROCKY”music and hearing my mother screaming at me because it was so loud! I still listen to my “Rocky”CD today, and feel right at home playing it nice and loud!
I got into Male Fitness Modeling at the age of 18, and continue to have a busy schedule this very day. I not only compete as a male fitness model, I also compete in natural bodybuilding shows all over the country. I also have appeared in many Films, TV shows, commercials, magazines, and catalogs. But what I am most proud of is helping others achieve their goals. Whether its health, male fitness, motivation, nutrition or well being, I love to encourage others to follow their dreams. I’m glad I found mine as a child. Today I’m married to my wonderful wife Tina who is my true love. I reside in NYC where I continue my modeling and television career. I’m also the owner of Tony’s Fitness Studio in Ozone Park, NY.
