Pleasanton, Ca.
I began training with Mike West 1 month before my 52nd birthday.  I always dreamed of competing as a bodybuilder.  I used to watch bodybuilding competitions on television with my dad when I was growing up.  I was always fascinated with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Colombo and Lou Ferrigno.
As I began training with Mike he encouraged me to compete in powerlifting.  I have competed in 3 powerlifting competitions setting State and American records in my age and weight class.  On October 25, 2014 I competed in my first bodybuilding competition and came in first place.  I was also awarded my pro card.  I’m looking forward to competing as a pro in 2015.

San Mateo,Ca

Evan first began working with Mike while preparing for his 2013 Track and Field season with the College of San Mateo. That year, he managed to break the school record in the shot put, which had stood firm since 1989. Evan also won the CCCAA State Championships and was the Junior College National leader in the shot put, as well as getting on the podium and ranking nationally in the discus and hammer throws. After this success, Evan turned his eye to powerlifting, where he quickly became a USPA Class 1 powerlifter, totaling 1620 at his first single-ply meet. Since then, he has increased his total to 1670, and now has set his sights on turning pro in Natural Bodybuilding.

Cassy Krause
Alameda, Ca

I started my weight training in 2005 at the age of 50 due to a health issue. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis in my low back and hips. It was a slow start. As I gained confidence in my training I liked the physical results I started to see. It was suggested I try competing in bodybuilding (figure). I had a few false starts and was discouraged with my attempts.So in 2011 I started training with Mike West of Mike West Fitness. So with the help of my new trainer I have competed in powerlifting and in 2012 figure category of bodybuilding at the age of 57 with excellent results. Far better than I have ever expected. Its been a hard journey but there is no looking back, just going to keep moving forward and hopefully compete in physique category of bodybuilding.Part of my time is spent working as a Licensed Massage Therapist.
