Beyond Raising the Bar

This book is a memoir of sorts. Each “chapter” is a story plucked from Dave’s life with the common thread being that they are related somehow to his life as a bodybuilder.

The stories range in time from Dave’s childhood growing up in southwest Philadelphia, to his days as a national competitor and everything in between. The stories are funny, sad, thought provoking and inspiring. This book paints a colorful picture of a life in bodybuilding.

Raising the Bar

Raising the Bar 1, 2, & 3 are a groundbreaking documentary series that shows for the first time the gritty, day to day reality of what it means to live life as a bodybuilder.

RTB is an intense, personal view inside a world that few people have ever seen. This is not a “sets and reps” kind of bodybuilding video but a real life documentary that just happens to be about bodybuilding.

RTB will make you laugh, cry and gasp. It is an unforgettable trip into the inner workings of a misunderstood sport and a powerful lesson in what it takes to be the best at anything.
