TOM PLATZ Joining PROPTA
IFBB PRO Tom Platz is one of the most sought after guest speaker / educator in the world of bodybuilding, nutrition and general fitness. He was a Professor and Director of Bodybuilding Sciences at ISSA (International Sport Science Association) from 1992 to 2005. Tom Platz retired from professional bodybuilding competition in 1987 and did a comeback in 1995 when he was awarded Honorary Mr. America. He still promotes the sport wholeheartedly. Platz's IFBB PRO debut was October 7, 1979, in Columbus, Ohio, in the under 200 pounds class at the two-tiered Mr. Olympia; he placed eighth. Platz best IFBB placings were second at the 1980 Pro Universe in Columbus, Ohio, and third place at the 1981 Mr. Olympia.Tom Platz leg development was peerless in his day and has not yet been surpassed. Perhaps his greatest achievement is that he remains the first gentleman of bodybuilding.I was in the midst of planning my over 50 Comeback when Joe Antouri, the CEO/President of the Private Trainers Association and I had a brief conversation and decided to work toward a common goal as old PROS and give back to the fitness and bodybuilding world. So I am coming back home.Please stay posted for more information in regards to certification seminars schedules with PROPTA and the IFBB PROS.I plan to have my first Certification Seminar in Los Angeles, California sometime soon.To Contact Tom Platz or sign up for the seminar, please call the corporate office at 818-766-3317 or sign up online. Soon to be announced.
