Hollywood Gold's: Rich Piana

It's amazing what a long break from competing will do for you.

One of Gold's private personal trainers, 39 year old Rich Piana, won the overall championship at the Border States Classic XXX in San Diego the weekend before last. The 6' super heavy last competed at the 2004 NPC National Championships where he placed 6th and weighed in at 251lbs.

competed at the USA's twice and the Nationals a total of three times, though 6th in 2004 was his highest placing. As shown by the pictures below, particularly the bottom two from the 2004 Nationals, that Rich has spent the intervening years adding to his impressive range of body art.

What an 'awesome' man and bodybuilder. I 'wish' I could be trained by him. The 'tats' add to his persona and he seems to be a nice guy to boot. Bravo to him and much success in his career....

Fantastic body and great prsonality, but those tattooes ruin all that work.
