Athletics always came easy to Mike Liberatore, it didn’t matter the sport. He was inspired by the athletes’ strength and muscularity.

 

In high school, he participated in gymnastics, but always followed up his routine with a weight lifting session. While Liberatore wasn’t entirely serious about weight lifting, he did realize his muscles developed faster than it did for others he knew.

 

 

It wasn't long before people started suggesting he enter bodybuilding competitions. Liberatore thought about it for several years, and finally entered his first show as a middleweight at 176 lbs. Within two years, he competed at 210 and two years after that he turned pro. 

 

Liberatore is married to IFBB Bikini Pro Cristina Liberatore.
