UPDATE 12/7: I want
to congratulate my clients on their fine job at the Nationals. It
was disappointing at the same time, because so many were so close
to getting their pro card. Peter Putman took 2nd in the Light Heavies,
Tammy Patnode the Lightweights, Grigori Atoyan 2nd in the Super
Heavies, Abbas Khatami 4th in the Heavies, Monty Mabry 4th in the
Light Heavies - I'm getting depressed just writing about it, so
let me stop here and apologize for not mentioning everyone's name.
WAIT 'TILL NEXT YEAR!
UPDATE 9/5: 23 PRO CARDS
I want to congratulate my clients on their fine job at the North
American. Mike horn finally got what he deserved, a masters overall
win and pro status. His wife Jan took her class and came so close
to getting her card too. She will get her card no later then next
year 's Masters Nationals!
Mabry's second place finish was his highest ever - next year we
need to work together for more than 8 weeks! In 2008 he will be
a force to reckon in whatever show he decides to enter! Kirk De
Francesco moved up class and he looked amazing - but I will need
more then 4 weeks to get him his pro card next year :). Michele
Dennis, hang in there sweetie you've had to many second place finishes.
I know that their is a first place for you next year and pro card
UPDATE 7/30: 22 PRO CARDS AND COUNTING! Congratulations
to all of my friends and clients on for the results they achieved
in the Summer NPC shows.
DeShaun Grimez won the Heavyweight Class at the USAs to earn his
pro card. Catherine Anderson is also now an IFBB pro, winning her
class in figure and the overall title.
heavy weight winner Peter Putnam won the Light Heavies - I promise
you he will get his card at the Nationals this year. Welterweight
winner Mark Harris won his class also and is going to be tough to
beat at the Nationals too. And to my favorite client Kevin Tomasini,
you will get the respect you deserve at the North American show
coming up at the end of the month. Rudy Richards had another top
ten finish in the Super Heavies - I have a plan for you and your
card is coming soon!
Universe: Congratulations to Hazale Nelson for getting her pro
card at the Team Universe C Class in Pittsburg.
Nationals: Mike Horn took a close second in the Super Heavies
as did his wife Jan in her class. I promise you'll both go pro soon.
Also, congratulations to my beautiful client and friend Michele
Dennis for taking a close second in her class. And to my big brother
Anthony Finocchiaro, who has always listened and believed in me
- Welcome to the IFBB!
promised, George showed up much improved at the Colorado
Pro, taking 6th overall. George will taking the rest of
the year to train and come back at nothing less than number 1 in
I want to thank my fans for all of their support. I did my best
to be on that stage in the best shape that I can be without hurting
myself. The doc gave me the OK to train for the show only 10 weeks
out, so I basically had 6 weeks to diet down. I hope this weekend
you will see something different at the Colorado show.
also want to thank Optimum Nutrition and American Bodybuilding for
all of their support. They are a super company with a great products
and they are an awesome crew to work for.
