From Obese To On-Stage

From Obese To On-Stage

Yuri Diogenes Loses 100 Lbs And

Realizes His Bodybuilding Dream

 

One of the great things about coming to work every day at ProSource is you get to meet great people who have accomplished amazing things. One such person who has made a big impression on all of us here is Yuri Diogenes, a man who progressed from being seriously, morbidly obese to stepping on-stage as a ripped and rock-hard bodybuilder at an NPC-sponsored physique event in Texas.

 

When that spotlight hit Yuri and the crowd applauded, it represented the culmination of two long years of hard work and discipline in the gym and a total commitment to a new and healthier lifestyle. The man who had once despaired at the notion of keeping up with his 3-year-old daughter, who once regarded climbing a flight of stairs as a daunting chall...

Amateur Bodybuilder Roger RomanceGoes From Wrecked to Ripped in Record Time
If physique transformations were easy, everyone would be doing them. But out in the real world, change comes hard. Some people get off to a good start, but lose their way. Plateaus prove intractable; family issues and work commitments intrude. Some people just never reach their goal. And then there's Roger Romance. ProSource's Transformation of the Year athlete has traveled a long, long way to get where he is today.


You would never guess the truth if he didn't tell you, but not so long ago Roger was a "train wreck." That's the phrase he uses to describe a situation in which he lost his house, investment properties, cars, and savings to the home mortgage collapse, as well as his health and well-being to devastating exha...

Newly Rock-Hard and Massive Josh Andrews
Aims for Bodybuilding's Elite Pro Ranks


"I was big and I could throw the weight around pretty good, but I was soft. I was like a big teddy bear."

Today, Josh Andrews can look back on his "teddy bear" days with a sense of humor. (It certainly helps that he's looking back from the vantage of one who is now both massive and massively ripped to the bone.) But at the time, his physique was a source of deep frustration.

Of all the challenges that face aspiring pro bodybuilders, one of the most difficult is adding the kind of quality, rock-hard muscle--as opposed to undefined bulk--that earns point...

Of course, there are sacrifices to be made. Comfort foods to be avoided, trips to the gym that take priori...

From Couch to Coach

From Couch to Coach
This formerly obese wife and mother is now a certified trainer competing on stage

As anyone who has made the life-changing decision to do something about their obesity knows, it usually takes an eye-opening experience to enact change. For some, it's receiving test results from a physician that serves as a wake-up call, and for others, an upcoming event, such as a wedding or reunion, is enough to motivate a transformation.

For Elizabeth Hronek Atkins, now 28, it was the combination of the inability to keep up with her young daughter and a desire to look better. "I couldn't participate in all the activities that I wanted to, I was struggling to keep up with my daughter and do all the things she wanted to, and I didn't like the way I looked," she reveals.

It seems Elizabeth had taken the slogan of her birthplace--Everything's bigger in Texas--to ...

Former High School Athlete Recovers His Rock-Hard Physique

Call it "Former Athlete Physique Syndrome."

You see it at every level, from high school to the pros. Athletes live a highly active lifestyle. They work hard, play hard ... and eat a lot. Then comes the day when the uniform comes off. Suddenly, the practice sessions in the hot sun are over, time spent in the weight room declines dramatically. But the former player still eats like an athlete at the training table.

The result? Yesterday's rock-hard athlete is today's soft couch potato. Just ask Anthony Varano.

"In high school I played baseball through my junior year," Anthony ...

Top Figure Competitor Brings Her "Best Body" to the Stage with the Help of Supreme Protein.

Back when she was solely a fitness instructor, Ana de Castro used to hear it all the time. "Oh it looks so easy for you!" people would say. This statement, usually from a new participant in one of Ana's classes, was often followed by something along the lines of I wish I had your get-up-and-go. Or it might be, I wish I had your metabolism.

"Oh, I'd hear it all. I still do. And I wish it was easy for me, believe me," Ana says, and laughs. "I wish there was some magic to staying fit. But I know that letting things slide to the point where you're not happy with your figure can happen to anyone. I know. It happened to me."

That may seem like a surprising admission from someone who recently earned " Best Body World Overall Champion
