Bruno Pieske
Personal Trainer
I was born in São Paulo, Brazil on July 17th 1980. In my late teens I became fascinated by bodybuilding and training, immediately I started training using the 5BX plan, suggested to me by my dad. In a couple of months I reached the most advanced level and it wasn't enough for me, I wanted more. My dad took me to the best gym in town, the late "Formula Academia", it was 1997 and I was super excited to start lifting weights. I was eager to learn and bought lots of training and bodybuilding books, but something was not ok. I found out that the majority of athletes were using PEDs, this was a major disappointment to me, since I had no role models to look up to because staying a true natural bodybuilder was adamant to me. Then I learned about Steve Reeves, John Grimek, Eugen Sandow and Arthur Saxon. Immediately I set new goals and started to train using their methods. Meanwhile I also went to study Physical Education, I got my degree in 2002 at FMU-Unified Metropolitan Faculties, a private college in São Paulo, Brazil. I started to work as a certified trainer by the Brazilian Physical Education Counsel in 2003. In 2015 I opened my own gym in Poços de Caldas, a city located in the south of the state of Minas Gerais. Since my first contact with the wonderful world of training, I have never interrupted my workout routine, keeping in good shape is part of my lifestyle. My main goal with my work is to help others to achieve optimal fitness and strength the natural way!

Specialties: Muscle hypertrophy and endurance conditioning.
