My name is Brad Hollibaugh. I have been training in bodybuilding approximately 23 years. I started competing as a bodybuilder in 1983 in which I have won many bodybuilding titles. Some notable one's are 1989 NPC Mr. Redondo Beach, 1990 NPC Mr. Washington, 1995 NPC Mr. Las Vegas, 1997 NPC Mr. Northwest, 1999 NPC Mr. Los Angeles (for complete contest history check my bio section at www.brad-hollibaugh.com).
I am considered by many to be one of the largest & strongest bodybuilders on the scene today and also known for possibly the best & biggest bicep’s and calves in the sport. My height is 5'9 and my weight off-season averages 285-300 lbs. and my competition weight is 255-265 lbs. This photo shoot I weighed 285 lbs. My future plans for competing are the 2001 NABBA Nationals and the 2001 NABBA Mr. Universe. I am determined to be at peak condition and do very well at these upcoming contests. One of my main goals in this sport is to become the largest and most complete bodybuilder on the planet and I pray & feel in the near future I will achieve this goal.
I have surrounded my life with the bodybuilding and fitness lifestyle. I truly enjoy preaching and living the sport. I love helping people achieve their health & fitness related goals and think it is wonderful to be a part of that change in their lives. I believe in helping them not only physically but mentally and emotionally too. Being a first quality person is even more important to me than being a first quality bodybuilder. I feel you have to be just as good person on the inside as you are on the outside. I thoroughly love what I do. I cannot picture myself doing anything else in life.
My wife Debbie and I previously owned 2 World Gym's in Vancouver, WA. for roughly 8 years. I love the health club business but it's a lot of hard work. We recently got out of the health club business a few years back and plan on getting back into it within the next few years. I currently do personal training, nutritional counseling & coaching, a lot of which I do through my website at www.brad-hollibaugh.com or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It's quite amazing to be able to help & communicate with people all over the world.
I also do guest posing appearances and seminars all over the country and I really enjoy doing these. I never seem to get tired of this lifestyle. I feel God has blessed me with a great talent with bodybuilding and I love to share and encourage people with these talents. I am also currently pursuing acting & modeling opportunities and would like to expand more into those fields.
A little on my family history, I was born in Clarkston, WA, on Nov. 23, 1966. My parents are Larry & Geneva Hollibaugh who both reside in Idaho. I have 2 older brothers, Randy & Scott, one older sister Debby and one younger sister Traci, all which reside in Idaho with their families. I have a beautiful wife named Debbie. We have been married since Nov. 19, 1988. We have 4 wonderful children between us. A daughter Amber 21yrs., a son Justin 20 yrs., another daughter April 18yrs., and our youngest daughter Alyssa is 10yrs. Three beautiful granddaughters, Alexia 3yrs., Julie 2 yrs. and Hailey 3 months old. I love my family very much and consider them by far the most important thing in my life.
Another athletic I have been involved with is wrestling, I went 33 wins and 0 losses in my senior year in high school and consider that one of the highlights of my athletic career. I attended & graduated from Salmon high school in Salmon, Idaho. Future sporting events I may get involved with are power lifting, strong man competitions and possibly ultimate fighting competitions if the money is right. There is even a chance that I may get involved with big time wrestling. I guess I will wait and see what the future holds. Unfortunately it is hard to make a living on bodybuilding alone, so I am keeping my options open for other opportunities that can coincide with my bodybuilding career.
In closing, I wanted to thank John Mitchell for this photoshoot, for his kindness and excellent work. A friend of mine that I met over the Internet referred John to me and we arranged to do this shoot in Los Angeles a few months later. It was very difficult for me to make it to this shoot. I had to drive 18 hrs. each way to make it, but I wanted to be true to my word I gave to John and make sure I made it there. I am very glad I did, the shoot went very well and John was incredible to work with and made me feel very relaxed and at ease. I am looking forward to doing more shoots with John in the future and referring local fitness and bodybuilding talents to him. To him I owe a great "THANKS"!
