Mark Raineri


The first time I ever picked up a weight, was when I was 14 years old. I got a 10 lb. weight and did endless bicep curls and shoulder presses while I was watching TV. I got really interested in the sport of bodybuilding when I began seeing results.

Soon, I purchased my first bodybuilding magazine, and was amazed at all of the muscle. I did endless hours of research, and personal tests to see what kind of nutrition and diets worked for me. That's when I decided to take bodybuilding seriously and placed 2nd in my first bodybuilding contest.
