A couple here and there. At the Koloseum.

Johnny Jackson was the coolest to chill and talk to, very easy to talk to.

Dennis Wolf, was in a hurry for a shoot, so he didn't seem interested...

Jay Cutler, Ronnie Coleman, Hide, Armin Schulz, Silvio Samuel....a couple others I'm sure I'm forgetting....

Men --- Art Atwood, Jay Cutler several times, Bill Wilmore several times, Evan Centopani several times, Jose Raymond (has he finally accepted his pro card?), Dexter Jackson, Kai Greene, Marcus Haley, a few others who I am forgetting.  I know Greg Rando pretty well, as he's from my area.

Women --- Carla Salotti (my trainer), Colette Nelson, Vicki Nixon, Lynn Conkwright (my former coach), Debbie Bramwell, Annie Riveccio, and others who I can't remember.  Also many figure and fitness pros, too many to name.

Jay's was very nice about pics, etc. and Evan C. is one of the sweetest guys I have ever met.  Bill Wilmore's a cool dude, we went out drinking one night with him and had a good time. 

Kai Greene was funny and grunted a lot when I was talking to him.  He also squeezed me REALLY tight when we took a photo together.   Grin

Kovacs looks like an absolute giant. I mean his fist looks as big as your head. Might not have had the most attractive physique, but Kovacs had to be one of the biggest bodybuilders ever. I heard he even got up to 400lbs at times.

Born in New York and lives in Canada. Basically he is the biggest pro ever, the only down side is that he never looked that good at competition condition, paticularly in his last few years competing. He did the Arnold in '04 and '05 and came in at around 330lbs. Unfortunately he looked like, well you will see...

Some good pics and info on him.

I see Dorian Yates nearly every day - he came into the gym for a brief moment when I was training yesterday with loads of christmas shopping and wrapping paper for his little girl - it was kinda surreal when you consider he used to weigh 300lbs and was formerly the best bodybuilder on the planet.

I know it's not the V meso Roll Eyes

Impressed by what?

Their size?  A few of them were impressive size wise, a couple that stand out are Armin Schultz, and Ed Van Amsterdam(really cool guy, super friendly), some of the others, not so impressive.


Their condition? Some were in really good shape, others fairly well into "offseason" Wink


Their personalities? I never got to "hang out" as in several hours, only a few minutes here and there. A few have been very friendly and talkative, others like Dennis Wolf, not so much, he seemed to be in a big hurry.

Johnnie Jackson hung out a talked while he was there, Ed VanAmsterdam was fuckin hilarious and having a real good time, Hide is always polite/cordial, Silvio was friendly and easily approachable,  James "flex" Lewis was cool when he was there.


For the most part these guys are friendly/ approachable, personality-wise.....varies.




Does that quench your nagging desire to wank to pros, meso_z? Kiss
Any one particular you're wondering about?

Both of these women have been in the gym and both were very nice, Cathy particularly was very outgoing.
