Steve Kuclo, bodybuilding’s newest superstar, has been an athlete his entire life. Growing up in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, just outside Detroit, Steve was an only child of a tight-knit family, where he excelled in several sports, including baseball, hockey and football. Steve’s been lucky that his entire family has followed and supported his athletic career, from baseball, to hockey and eventually football. As a young athlete, Steve’s prowess led him to both national and international recognition in hockey, including being placed in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Even now, with his newest physical “addiction”, bodybuilding, his grandparents, aunt and cousins continue to be his biggest supporters.
After high school, Steve attended the University of Michigan, where his two years studying Engineering shifted course. Steve decided to pursue a career as a fire-fighter/medic. As Steve’s path began to evolve, his newly found passion for this noble, life-saving career fueled his drive to excel through the fire fighting and paramedic academy…and at the same time, another passion began to evolve in Steve…his love for bodybuilding.
Steve began training at the Powerhouse gym in Clinton, twp., where he was exposed to other competitive bodybuilders. He and his first training partner, Justin Harris, soon decided to test their mettle on the competition stage at a local contest. Steve was only 18 at the time. When the dust settled on his first experience with the competition stage, Steve came away with the first place in the Teen division and placed 3rd in the Men’s Open class. From that point on, Steve was hooked. He would go on to win the Teen Nationals Heavyweight division two years in a row, and it seems Steve is destined for pro status and even greater achievements in the sport of Bodybuilding. Shortly after the 2010 Nationals, Steve teamed up with the Pro Creator, Hany Rambod, founder of Evogen Nutrition. Both have been committed to unleashing the most impressive version of Steve Kuclo the bodybuilding world has yet to see, in Las Vegas at the 2011 USA’s.
Steve has a passion for helping people and being a positive influence in many young peoples lives. Steve lives a devout Christian life, keeping Christ first through all his journeys and challenges that he embarks. He has started a small charity called, “Kuclo’s Kids” that is to help feed inner city and orphan children. “Seeing a child with a smile on their face and to knowing you have inspired them or given them hope to pursue their dream is one of the best feelings in the world.”
Steve says, “I’d like to thank my parents for giving me the support and the genetics to push my body to the limits that most people can not achieve; and I’d like to thank all my family and friends who put up with me during my contest prep and accept the lifestyle I live.”
Steve’s spirituality provides a foundation for his daily life:
Phillipians, 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.”
I look forward to working with the outstanding group of people at ICON Meals and with the other professional athletes. I already have trust in the ICON brand because I am highly impressed with the results that I have seen and how I personally have felt since beginning with their meal prep over the past few months. It will be easy to refer people to ICON.
