D'après ce que j'ai lu dans divers magazines durant l'époque pendant laquelle il était au top, il était l'un des premiers athlètes sponsorisés par Muscletech qui venait de naître. Et toujours d'après ce que j'ai lu à l'époque il avait très très bien négocié son contrat , j'espère pour lui qu'il a placé correctement et investit suffisament, car en ce moment c'est cuit pour lui

Return of The Kovacian!
Written by Greg Kovacs
Thursday, 17 February 2011 02:40




Hello my friends; Greg Kovacs here. Since this is my first article for RX Muscle I'll be discussing the past few years that I've been absent from the sport of bodybuilding as a form of "therapy", of sorts, for myself. I'm documenting for my fans, haters and anyone else who cares to read this article, the mistakes, failures and hardships I've been dealing with in my life. I'll be sending it off all this negativity; letting it go from my heart and mind . . . leaving it all behind me. Only then can I move on to greater and more positive achievements. Working with my good friend Dave Palumbo of RX Muscle is the absolute best way I can think of to reinvent and resurrect myself. After all, The Kovacian can only truly write about "The Truth in Bodybuilding" and what better place to do it than at bodybuilding's #1 website: Rx Muscle, The Hardcore Holy Grail.

Ok, a good place to start would be my Arnold Classic debauchery of 2004 where i looked and felt absolutely hideous. Incidentally, i had a severe bacterial infection in my lower intestines from about 6 weeks prior to the show that got progressively worse as the contest approached. This caused intense bloating, terrible runs and basically sucked the life right out of me and my muscles. There's no way i should have competed. Being totally flat and having extreme bloating and cramping of my stomach is not something a bodybuilder wants to deal with days before the most important contest of his life. By show time I looked like a prisoner from a concentration camp that was 6 months pregnant. . . like a starving Cambodian. I listened to people close to me. They must have been blind because i was getting flatter as the show approached. I don't think it's a good sign when you're spending the entire time on the toilet in your hotel room while simultaneously trying to carb load. The whole experience was a disaster; I was just devastated.

A fun fact people don't know about me is that i have suffered from panic attacks and anxiety for the longest time. Even the year i won the Canadian Nationals I almost didn't compete because of these issues and I looked great that year. I half-heartedly tried redeeming myself at the IFBB Niagara Falls Pro in 2005 but those memories of 2004 still messed with my head and I entered big and bloated. It's been hard to get past these truths, especially when people can just click to these disasters anytime they want on the internet. My haters have a field day with that stuff. Well, at least someone benefited.

Shortly after all this, my wife Kim and I split after 16 years of marriage and, to me, that was a much worse blow than what I'd recently gone through at my contests. She was my best and only friend, and she did just about everything for me. She was my rock. I was very introverted and she was extraverted. Anyone who knew us as a couple knew they would always deal with Kim; never with me. Kim was great in many ways. She cooked and weighed out all my food and basically took care of all our business. One of my many regrets is that i didn't take a more active role in the business aspect of bodybuilding. She talked to all the promoters and booked all my appearances which was fine at the time. Many times when I'd be giving a seminar and someone would ask me a question; she would instantly cut me off and answer the question for me. She was also very outspoken and would just say whatever was on her mind. At times, that greatly hindered our future business relationships. A lot of people never really got to know me; they only knew me through her. In the past few years i have been trying to find myself and my identity again. Presently, I intend to personally interact with the fans and supporters of our sport. I want them to get to know the real me. I must be the only pro who had his wife talk about his nutrition strategies in his DVD training video. This is the true reason why, ever since Kim left, life has become such a huge adjustment for me. Thinking, doing and speaking for myself has been quite a learning experience these past few years. Once you understand this about me you can also understand why I've made so many mistakes and poor choices in my life. But I'm learning. Kim and i still keep in touch and i wish the best for her. I'd like to believe that she wishes the best for me, as well.



So after Kim left, it was a new experience learning to deal with people I'd meet. On top of that, all the horrible bullshit on the Internet about our split-up pushed me into an even greater depression. All this Internet talk reminds me to thank Nasser El Sonbaty for all the "nice" things he said about Kim and I after he stayed in our home, freeloading, for a month. The lying bastard!

The funny thing about Nasser is that when i read all the terrible things he wrote about my wife and I, it actually shocked me because we never had any bad blood or argument of any kind. In the time he stayed in our home, I thought we became good friends. At the time, he was stuck in Canada with an expired visa and we took him to the US embassy every few days during that time until the matter was straightened out. A few months later, I saw him at a photo signing at the Night Of Champions and he acted like he didn't even know who i was. Strange character that Mr. El Sonbaty. I'm sure, soon enough, our paths will cross again. It might even happen at a Men's Warehouse where I hear he's selling cheap men's suits. Maybe we can document it on video? It would be a great reunion. Maybe we can have one of those celebrity boxing matches? That would be a lot of fun!

One valuable lesson I've learned is that there are people out there who will sense weakness in a person, then circle like vultures (disguised as friends). They'll make all kinds of wonderful promises; however, the problem is that most of these promises have no substance behind them. I've always been too trusting, so when my wife left me I was like some big naïve kid; easy prey for manipulative people. A few failed business ventures with these supposed "friends"; however, taught me to be smart and ask questions. Trust me when I tell you, I've learned some valuable lessons at the "school for hard knocks".

Needless to say, after getting screwed a few times, a pattern emerged and I've come to the realization it wasn't the sport and industry i needed the break from after all. I just needed to find a new path and focus on the sport I love and miss being part of. Competing was never my strong suit. Given my competitive history, I guess that's not really any great revelation on my part. I have many other things to offer. I was the first and only 400 pound IFBB Pro bodybuilder and I was the largest Canadian National Champion in the country's history. That's something I suppose. My knowledge and experience with training, nutrition, and coaching (anyone I've helped prepare for competition over the years have all attained their best ever shape) is among the best out there. I will leave it to the discretion of my former clients to submit testimonials if they don't mind admitting I helped them. You'd be surprised how many guys and wouldn't give me credit when I helped them out. The funny thing is that I never even charged any of them. Now they're charging clients and making a living training other people with information they learned from me. I, humorously, think to myself, sometimes, "I should be known as the most massive guru in the industry"..

I haven't been on the Internet, or followed the sport for quite a while, but when I went back online, I was pleasantly surprised to see how many fans and haters-- you can't have one without the other-- were still talking about me during my absence. My fans were hoping I'd come back and my haters were hoping I wouldn't. I find that watching all the latest, talented, bodybuilders is quite impressive. It's motivating me to kick it up a notch in the gym again.

So there you have it. This is what i have been dealing with for the past few years. Now that I've told my "story", I'm hoping my fans and maybe,even a few of my haters can embrace my return and support me in rediscovering the Kovacian. I want to thank Dave Palumbo and the RX Muscle crew for adding me to the family. This is the only place I can think of that feels a lot like "home" to me.

How I Met Muscletech's Paul Gardiner!



Written by Greg Kovacs
Monday, 28 February 2011 03:43

I get a lot of questions from people asking me how I met Paul Gardiner, the owner of Muscletech. They wanna know how did Muscletech begin? They wanna know the story of the young kid with a great concept who worked in a Musclemag store and who discovered the huge hulking bodybuilder named Greg Kovacs, They wanna know the story of how Paul launched my career and created one of the largest supplement companies of all time. Since I was there to witness the company growing from grass roots muscle heads to one of the largest nutritional companies in the world today, I feel that my point of view is particularly relevant.

As I said, I first met Paul at the Musclemag main store by the airport in Toronto, Canada. He was a great kid and huge fan of the sport of bodybuilding. Over time, he and I became good friends. He was my biggest supporter. He always bragged to people about me and how huge I was, and he marveled over my freakish strength. He was extremely passionate about bodybuilding and the whole industry in general. Back in the old days, he always gave me great deals on protein and anything else he could possibly help me with. We talked a lot about training and he would constantly pick my brain. A few weeks before I competed at the 1995 IFBB North American Championships I came into the store and Paul introduced me to Bob Kennedy, the owner of Musclemag. Bob had his magazine offices over this particular Musclemag store so Bob happened to be downstairs when I came in.

A few weeks after the show ended (I came in smooth and placed 11th), I got a call from him asking me if I'd do a photo shoot with Bob for Musclemag. I wound up doing the photoshoot and at dinner later than night, Paul explained that he was coming out with his own supplement line and he wanted to use me to endorse the products. He promised me that, eventually, he would provide me with a paying supplement "deal". Remember, back then, I knew Paul as the manager of a supplement store, a great kid, good spirit and smart. I thought to myself, becoming a supplement owner is a lofty goal. The supplement industry wasn't as popular in the 90's as it is today. These days you have new companies popping up daily. It seems like everybody owns a supplement company. Well, except me, that is! In the 90s' there were a few giants-- Weider, Met-Rx, EAS and a few others. Whey protein isolate was new age back then. It would have been pretty easy for me to tell Paul, "Yeah, ok kid. Whatever you say," but it was the way he talked to me. He had such great conviction in his voice, I saw the possibilities. He was great at motivating me and helping me to believe in myself. He saw something in me that I didn't even see in myself. He always reminded me that I had unlimited potential.

Paul used himself as a guinea pig and he dieted and trained for the first Before and After pictures ever used to promote his "supplement baby" You might have heard of it; Hydroxycut. Back in those early days, I helped Paul with his diet and training and I helped him to prepare for those first photos like he was getting ready for the Mr Olympia contest. And in retrospect he was. Those Before and After shots were so drastic that many people thought they were photo-shopped. Sure he slouched and stuck out his belly in the before pics, But i was there to witness the change He worked his butt off, dieting and preparing like any bodybuilder would for a contest. He really looked awesome in those "after" photos. He was contest ripped and he had a good physique to boot. While he enjoyed the process, I think that was the first and last time Paul ever dieted like that. It's cool to know that I was somehow involved in the creation of the supplement giant that Muscletech is today. But I'm also grateful for the tremendous amount of knowledge I accumulated regarding diet and supplementation during that time. This was information that I was able to successfully apply to my physique for my assault on the 1996 contest season and earning my IFBB Pro Card. Paul was my Litmus test and, from the results, I felt pretty confident in my preparation skills from that point on.

The 1996 Arnold Classic was the first official launch of the Muscletech line and Paul, a few of his friends, and I worked our first ever Muscletech booth that weekend. It was quite primitive compared to the ones they have today. You could raise a family of 3 in the size of the booth spaces they have nowadays. At that 96 Arnold, we had a couple card tables pushed together with a few bottles of the entire line at the time. I remember, we only had Creatine 6000, Acetabolin, and you guessed it...Hydroxycuts, back then. We had a blast though. I was 400lbs at that show and was just about to start my 6-month prep for my next contest. As I'm sure you can imagine, I drew a lot of attention to say the least. But the interesting part of the story was the drive back from Columbus, Ohio to Canada. We didn't fly back then. No one did! Paul and the boys drove down in Johnnie Fitness's old red beat up van. That's how they brought the supplements to sample and the display. Well, surprise, surprise, the van broke down and Paul asked if my wife and I (at the time) would give them a ride. At the time we had a Ford Tempo so just fitting a 400lb bodybuilder, my wife into the car was a project. Add in 3 larger than average humans and luggage . . . well u get the picture.

Just when we thought nothing else could go wrong, a crazy whiteout blizzard started falling out of the sky. There was zero visibility. We literally shoved the 3 guys in the back (with their bags) and forced the doors closed. Thank God it wasn't a 2 door car or this would never have worked. I sat in the font and drove while my wife sat in the passenger seat. I'm sure to onlookers it seemed as though we were raping that poor, defenseless, vehicle. I somehow managed to get us back safely despite not seeing very much of anything the entire trip. The 3 guys whining about cramps from being wedged in the back didn't help my nerves much either. When we finally arrived home, I opened the back doors and they literally fell out of the car; all their muscles seized up and stiff. Oh, those were the good old days!



Next week I'll fill you in on my 6-month contest prep leading up to the Canadian Nationals, my flying out to California for photos with FLEX and Musclemag, and my face-to-face meeting with Joe Weider at the Woodland Hills office. I'll also tell you about Muscletech's surprising offer to me and the quick rise to success and travelling the world. And for the finale, I'll tell you all about the the Kovacs-Muscletech parting of ways. . . one of my sadist moments in the history of my career.
