Steve was an exceptional athlete from a very young age. He played hockey and was an accomplished swimmer and diver. He won numerous swimming competitions and was also the Northern Ontario Diving Champion 3 years in a row. Shortly after finishing high school, Steve was diagnosed with a kidney disease called, Glomerulonephritis.
After a few years of struggling with this disease, Steve began to study nutrition and decided to look closely at his eating habits. At the same time he took up bodybuilding. After cleaning up his diet and eating healthy wholesome foods, Steve found out through years of extensive research that the cause of his kidney disease was inferior protein sources.
Four years into his new lifestyle of healthy eating and bodybuilding, he won the 1986 Mr. Universe title in Tokyo, Japan. He competed on the Professional Bodybuilding circuit for several more years including the 1990, 1991 and 1992 Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic where he competed against the top bodybuilders in the world placing 5th, 6th and 5th respectively.
Steve retired from professional bodybuilding in 1992. Since then he has always maintained a healthy lifestyle. Steve is a firm believer in eating well and leading an active lifestyle in order to improve your overall health and well being. Steve believes that the food we eat can ward off sickness and disease, fight aging and depression, and boost immunity.
Because of his healthy routines, Steve at 50 has the energy of an 18 year old. He attributes that mainly to his strict eating habits and daily exercise.
