A behind-the-scenes look at the underground world of bodybuilding, this expose is a tragic tale of drugs, murder, and self-destruction. Detailing Gregg Valentinos fame as the man whose biceps exploded, this portrayal reveals how he quickly rose to the top of the weight-lifting scene, becoming both a spokesman for the sport and a celebrity among fans. This account also discusses how he crossed into the illegal world of steroids and drugs, becoming the biggest supplier of Steris products in the United States, and how his world of sex, drugs, and money came crashing down when his girlfriend died from a drug overdose and he was arrested. A gripping, uncensored story about a muscle-worshipping culture, this provocative, harrowing biography uncovers the dark and dangerous world of steroid use and drug dealing.

"The concept for this book is provocative. It is somehow counterintuitive to think of great athletes becoming unfit in old age. Of course the recent suit brought against the NFL by former players indicates that fitness and health can erode all too quickly. The aging pursuers of fitness featured in 'The Aging Athlete' are the exceptions and not the rule. We can all learn from their own stories of perseverance."—Tom Jones, Author of "Sports Competition for Adults Over 40" What can we learn from former top athletes that is especially relevant for our health and lifestyles? Even though most athletes are essentially performance minded rather than maintenance and wellness minded, it’s still a compelling revelation why 90 percent of them don’t continue a program to try and retain some of their skills and conditioning. Learning from the 10 percent who do stay fit and healthy is where we can all benefit. The Aging Athlete chronicles the fitness and mindset of a group of retired and semi-retired athletes, of what’s worked for them over the years since they stopped competing or serving in the armed forces. Some of the top athletes include Billy Mills — 1964 10,000m race gold medalist once considered the most famous living Native American; Ken Shamrock — former UFC heavyweight champion who was named the World’s Most Dangerous Man; Sam “Bam” Cunningham who starred in the famous 1970 Civil Rights Football Game; and Allen Winder — a blue-eyed basketball player who was called upon by Meadowlark Lemon to break the color barrier … in reverse. WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN THIS BOOK 1. Why? Why all of the attention on athletics and aging athletes? What might it be like to be the caregiver/spouse of a 28-year-old athlete who was until recently one of the most physically powerful athletes on the planet? How old is an aging athlete? Hockey great Bobby Orr was injured, and partially hobbled, at the end of his first year as a pro--age 18. His kids have never participated in competitive skating or hockey. Why did kids used to play different sports year round, all seasons, and today it's common for young people to only take up one sport and train for it the entire year? 2. Why isn't wellness emphasized more for all and especially for performance oriented athletes? What are the payoffs of recreation vs. performance oriented sports? 3. Why don't we learn to coach ourselves? Why do high numbers of performance athletes (inc. ex military and ex ballet performers) stop maintaining fitness soon after leaving their performance time? 4. The importance of downtime. 5. How to pursue self-mastery.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's first love relives their six-year journey during his explosive first years in America. While she watches Arnold surpass his dreams, Barbara learns to transform hers -- from desiring what cannot be to cherishing what is so. As a woman who spends her adult life trying to get out from under Arnold's shadow, Barbara Baker learns about the shifting direction of life's journey. She hopes for normalcy during and after living with her stratospherically successful Austrian Oak bodybuilder. Barbara finds life anything but normal, however. Within Arnold and Me, she strips down this conjoined twosome as they launch their adult lives into polar opposite journeys. After their breakup, Arnold transcends the role of Hercules to become the Governator. He marries once and produces four children; to the contrary, the English Professor says "I do" four times, yet bears no offspring. Along with vintage photos and firsthand dialogue, the book's resolution forces their singular lives to merge at a satisfying junction. Despite their divergent paths, both Arnold and Barbara demonstrate that achieving one's dream demands a relentlessly flexible spirit. Barbara has skillfully rounded Arnold's corners by offering heartfelt nuances about this man who marked her for life. The author's enlightened voice also resonates with those who face relationship challenges over personal identity and fulfillment. She not only lifts herself into higher consciousness, but also the willing reader. Her journey has allowed her to find life's richness through accepting not only Arnold's daunting shadow, but also her own. This woman sings with energy, incrementally illuminating the rich lives of two ex-lovers within a beautifully developed, fast-paced story. Her readers continue to travel in their minds, breathing in the life of Arnold and Barbara long after the last word has been read.
