I now returned with a vengeance to working out. A trainer at the gym
asked me, in jest, "Why are you here so often? Are you going to
enter a bodybuilding contest or something?" I found the answer
springing to my tongue spontaneously from deep within me, "Yes,
I am!" I knew absolutely nothing at all about bodybuilding and
certainly nothing about bodybuilding competition.
I wrote to the Chairman of the National Physique Committee for advice
on how to proceed, and he was kind enough to put me in touch with qualified
bodybuilding trainers in this area. Thus I met and engaged as my trainer/manager,
Dror Erez, Mr. Israel '95, and he remains my trainer to this day. I
am indebted to him for the progress I have made in the past two years
and my accomplishments in contests.
