Bodybuilding is much like any other sport. To be successful, you must dedicate yourself 100% to your training, diet and mental approach.
I didn't leave bodybuilding until I felt that I had gone as far as I could go. It will be the same with my film career. When I feel the time is right, I will then consider public service. I feel that the highest honor comes from serving people and your country.

"Political courage is not political suicide.
"I would rather be governor of California than own Austria."

"The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I hate that."
