I met Terry along with another Buddy back in 2003 at a show in Maui. So again, keep in mind that his profile is a little dated.
Sekona Taufa, was probably the first Natural Bodybuilder to be featured on Natural Muscle Hawaii, aside from myself. In fact, I believe it was Sekona, who helped to inspire the idea of providing a website to help promote other Natural Bodybuilders and Fitness Competitors from Hawaii. It was not long after we competed together in June of 2004, that he and his wife came over to my apartment with his CD’s loaded with photos, and we put his webpage together. Back then, slapping together a website was not as simple as it is today. There was no facebook, twitter, or other social media sites. So if you wanted a webpage, you either had to figure out how to make one, or find someone who had figured it out. Sekona, did just that. When I told him I could make him a webpage, he jumped at the opportunity. So that is truly how the concept of Natural Muscle Hawaii, and promoting other competitors was born. Mahalo Sekona, for your influence with Natural Muscle Hawaii. Check out his Profile and Photos.
Russ Yeager’s profile and photos was originally posted on Natural Muscle Hawaii in August of 2004. So like many of the other athletes profiles, the profiles are outdated. However, at that time Russ had already won the 18-30 Year Old Class of the 2002 AST World Championships. He was also the owner and operator of Russyeager.com, which still appears to be active, and up and running. Check out his profile.
For those who may not know. I (Roland Ho Jr.) founded Natural Muscle Hawaii back in 2003. So it should be no surprise that I was the first featured athlete. Back then, it was not as easy as it is today to establish a web presence. At least for most people. It wasn’t long, before other competitors started asking me if I could help them make a webpage/website. So what started out to promote myself, turned into a website to help promote other Natural Competitors as well. So if you find a lot of photo galleries on my profile, don’t be surprised.

At the time he was President & Founder of Harder Athletics – Sports Performance Systems, 1st Degree Black Belt in Parker’s Kenpo Karate &2002 Special Olympics Powerlifting Coach.

Chris Faildo photo gallery added back to Natural Muscle Hawaii. This is one of my favorite Bodybuilders. Very humble local guy, who knows his stuff, and is extremely disciplined. He was always an inspiration and motivation to train & compete naturally. To find out more about Chris you can check out his website at www.cfaildo.com .
