My name is Anthony Catanzaro, but all of my friends call me Tony. I was born in Bay Shore Long Island; I now reside in New York City. My father Carlo worked in the fish business and my mother Rosaria was a seamstress. Both of them have unfortunately passed away. I love and miss them dearly everyday.
I am the youngest of six children. I have four sisters named Kathy, Lisa, Annette, and Francine. I also have an older brother named Michael. All of us live in the New York area . I'm also married and my wife's name is Tina. Yes, we had the real Tony and Tina's wedding!
Growing up in Bay Shore, we all lived in a small house. My brother and sister's being much older than I moved out when I was still a child. It was around my 15th birthday when I transformed one of the bedrooms in my house into a gym. I was so into WWE Wrestling at that time, I used to love to watch Hulk Hogan pump up his persona on TV. I used to get crazy watching it! I think that was the spark that got me into fitness and bodybuilding. On my 15th Birthday, my sister Fran bought me a weight set. Then one week later around Christmas, I used my money to buy a bench to go with it. And the rest is history! I still remember playing "ROCKY" music and hearing my mother screaming at me because it was so loud! You see, the room I used for the gym was right next to the kitchen, and my mother was always in the kitchen cooking. I still listen to my "Rocky" CD today, and feel right at home playing it nice and loud!
I got into Male Modeling at the age of 18, and continue to have a busy schedule this very day. I not only compete as a male fitness model, I also compete in natural bodybuilding shows all over the country. I also have appeared in many Films, TV shows, commercials, magazines, and catalogs. But what I am most proud of is helping others achieve their goals. Whether its health and fitness, motivation, nutrition and well being I always encourage people to follow their dreams and I believe we all have a purpose, and we should all help each other find that purpose. I'm glad I found mine as a child.
Remember, follow your dreams and always have faith!
Trust in GOD, and believe in him for he will lead you to great things!
I hope you enjoyed reading my biography. I wish you all the best today and always!
