Nationality – Filipino / Japanese
Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii.
Married to Elaine Preza for 10 years.
Currently residing in Hawaii. Representing the bodybuilding scene for over 20 years.
In his early 20’s Steve Preza began competing.
Steve decided to step on the stage for his very first show because of a challenge from a friend.
After the experience of his first show, Steve found himself interested in others who share the same passion in bodybuilding as himself.
Last year Steve unfortunately discovered that he was born with congenital heart disease, a hereditary heart condition along with being diagnosed with kidney failure.
He is currently receiving dialysis treatments and a kidney transplant is being planned for the future.
Steve is constantly learning the anatomy of science in food and exercise and he actually learned how to make his body healthier and stronger to continue to compete even with this disease.
With Chris Cormier as his trainer and mentor, Steve is currently training to compete at the 2017 Arnold Amateur, California State and LA Bodybuilding Championships.
If all goes well at the USAs, Steve wants to prove to the world that you can reach your dreams no matter what obstacles you have trying to hold you back.
