Meet Featured Member Lou Capuano. Lou has dropped over 175 lbs. through consistency, dedication, and hard work. He's an inspiring example of someone who has achieved an amazing fitness transformation. Stop by and if you see him, say hello! Stern's Gym is San Diego's oldest bodybuilding gym. Established in 1946 it has been the training location for legends from Arnold Swarzenegger and Bill Pearl to today's up and coming greats like Artemis Dolgin.
Congratulations to Stern's member and professional bodybuilder Diane Moreno! In August, Diane took first place in the International Natural Bodybuilding Association Masters (35 an over) Figure category. Even though she's a busy entrepreneur, Diane has recently put a focus on fitness competition and pulled away as a true champion this. If you see her working out, stop by and help us congratulate Diane.
Stern's Gym members Liz Ponce and Lorenzo Lunceford both placed second in their divisions at the National Physique Committee So Cal Championships on June 11th!
From Lorenzo "Today I was reminded of the words of my grandpa, a resilient man who fought in WW2 and built something beautiful after enduring great hardships early in his life. He was a humble man, who appreciated his success that much more because he knew what it was to struggle. I remember he used to say "keep your head tall and don't slouch when you walk, walk like you own the world". His words are more clear to me now than they ever have been. The next show I will be doing is the Pacific USA August 20th here in San Diego. This time, the goal is to bring better conditioning, and better posing. We will be bringing a package that would certainly make gramps proud!!!". Well, we're already proud Lorenzo, great job!
From Liz "I want to thank everyone who has supported me in my first NPC competition. It was an amazing night for Stern's Gym at the NPC bodybuilding championship. Alex Brown won the whole show, Edna Ferrer placed first in her division and I placed 2nd in Physique." Terrific job Liz! We're super proud of your hard work, we've SEEN the sweat you've put into this achievement.
