Fred Stellabotte, a US Navy veteran and an expert in bodybuilding, has developed weight-training programs with a focus on proper form and injury prevention for over 50 years. He has trained movie stars, champion bodybuilders, professional athletes (including Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team and Oakland Raiders football team players), and members of the general public. From 1970 to 1989, he founded and directed southern California’s Manhattan Beach Athletic Club for Men and the Manhattan Beach Athletic Club for Women, two of the largest facilities of their kind in America. His knowledge and experience result from years of research, including study with monks who practice martial arts in China; extensive coursework in kinesiology, anatomy, and neurology; and scrutiny of proper muscle function through examination of his own body in front of mirrors. Weight Training Without Injury, co-authored by one of his star students, Rachel Straub, is Fred’s legacy. It shares his knowledge, acquired over a lifetime, with future generations.
