From bureaucrat to bodybuilder, Miami-Dade’s former mayor has been hitting the gym.
 
Carlos Alvarez is competing, and winning, bodybuilding contests.
 
“I was challenged into it, they told me a person my age, I’m 60, couldn’t do such a thing,” the former mayor told NBC 6 South Florida.
 
Miami-Dade residents voted Alvarez out of office in an unprecedented recall election back in 2011. Since then, the one-time mayor has been focused on building his body, spending hours at the gym.
 
Late-blooming bodybuilder are not a rarity.
 
“It’s very common, especially when people become more health conscious and become aware of their health issues, they turn to us,” said PJ Cicale, owner of Aventura’s Olympia Gym in Miami.
 
Alvarez said he’s been athletic since he was a kid, but the challenge is what motivated him to get into bodybuilding.
 
“If you challenge me to something, I’m going to prove you wrong,” said Alvarez.
 
Alvarez recently won a bodybuilding competition in the 60 and over category. He says he’ll compete in one more, then retire.
