Anthony Catanzaro male fitness model has appeared in many Muscle and Fitness, Natural Bodybuilding, Men's Exercise and was even a Playgirl centerfold.
My name is Anthony Catanzaro, but all of my friends call me Tony. I was born on December 18th in Bay Shore Long Island where I grew up as a child. I'm now married to my lovely wife Tina where we live in New York City.
My father's name was Carlo and he worked in the fish business and my mother's name was Rosaria and she worked in a factory were she sewed leather wallets. That’s a funny combination right? Both of my parents have unfortunately passed away. I love and miss them everyday and I devote this website to them. Growing up as a kid I used to love to put on shows in my house and imitate people. I remember being 10 years old and imitating my uncle Sal. I would actually put on shows in my house as my whole family would watch as I imitated my uncle Sal. He was and still is a character, but that's another story! I started to get so good at it that imitating anyone became an event. My parents would get phone calls from my school saying that your son is jumping off the desks with a red towel pined around his neck imitated Superman! I always loved to entertain people wherever I was. I think that the most important thing you can do is make someone smile and feel good. To me, that's the greatest gift you can give. Just don't jump off desks in school today times have changed.
Growing up in Bay Shore, we all lived in a small house. It was around my 15th birthday when I transformed one of the bedrooms in my house into a gym. I was so into WWF wrestling at that time, I used to love to watch Hulk Hogan pump up his persona on TV. I used to get crazy watching it! I think that was the spark that got me into fitness and bodybuilding. On my 15th Birthday, my sister Francine bought me a weight set. Then one week later around Christmas, I used my Christmas money to buy a bench to go with it. And the rest is history! I still remember playing "ROCKY" music and hearing my mother screaming at me because it was so loud! You see, the room I used for the gym was right next to the kitchen, and my mother was always in the kitchen cooking. I still listen to my "Rocky" CD today, and feel right at home playing it nice and loud!
I got into Male Modeling at the age of 18, and continue to have a busy schedule this very day. I not only compete as a male fitness model, I also compete in natural bodybuilding shows all over the country. I also have appeared in many Films, TV shows, commercials, magazines, and catalogs. But what I am most proud of is helping others achieve their goals. Whether its health and fitness, motivation, nutrition or well being, I love to encourage others to follow their dreams. I believe we are all born with a purpose, and we should all help each other find that purpose. I'm glad I found mine as a child. Remember, follow your dreams and always have faith! Trust in GOD, and believe in him for he will lead you to great things! I hope you enjoyed reading my biography. I wish you all the best today and always!
