My name is Kon Stellas and my passion for
bodybuilding started from a young age. My story starts from when I
was around 8 years old watching movies with Arnold
Schwarzenegger and always thinking I would like to look like him
when I was older. In my teenage years, I discovered all about
Arnold's bodybuilding career and this got me interested in the
sport of bodybuilding and discovering other successful
bodybuilders. All of this fuelled my obsession with this sport and
motivated me to get the body that I have always dreamed of.
I asked my dad to buy me a set of dumbbells at the age of 10 and I started to play around with them in the garage. At 15 years of age, I saved up enough money and bought myself a home gym to set up in the garage and did the best I could following basic programs from bodybuilding magazines. At age 18, I joined my first gym and started serious training, 5 days a week, and have been doing so ever since.
After moving gyms 4 years ago, I found a personal trainer, mentor and friend in Serge De Santis, an accomplished bodybuilder with several titles to his name including Mr Australia, Mr Australasia and even came second in Mr Universe. Serge gave me all the training advice I really needed to help me train to the best of my ability and continues to do so.
In 2011, I competed at the IFBB Victorian Bodybuilding Championships, coming first place in the Novice division, an achievement that I'm really proud of as it took a lot of hard work to get there. I am looking forward to competing again and doing my best as it is something I enjoy thoroughly. I know I couldn't have achieved what I have so far without the support of my wife who is always encouraging me to be my best and pursue my passion.
I am currently studying at the Australian Institute of Fitness to be a Master Trainer and really looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with others to help motivate them to achieve their own personal goals.
