We have learned that through hard work and training we could be and all the Champions League. Presented with muscle magazines when I was a young boy in Austria, me with inspiration and plan to push myself beyond my and imagine the future much more. I know that others countless worldwide and found motivation in the pages of his books just as it did, but as I read his articles in Austria, I felt he was talking directly to me and I am committed to move to America to make my vision to become the best bodybuilder, to live the American dream , and become an actor and reality.

Not only inspire an atmosphere of dreams closer to me, and that made them realized the day he invited me to go to America to pursue my bodybuilding career. I will never forget his generosity. One of the greatest qualities of Joe is that he was not only generous with his money, and he gave freely of his time and experience and became a father figure for me. Advised me on training, practical projects, and once, strange, claimed that I was a German player Shakespeare to get me my first role in "Hercules in New York", although I barely spoke English.

Very few people can claim to have affected many lives as much as Joe did to him through magazines, and his supplements, equipment and training, and personality big heart. He knew Joe urge everyone, "beyond yourself," There is no doubt that throughout his life, and he did just that.
