Steve Kuclo had the genetics of an athlete right from the start. Throughout his entire life growing up, Kuclo excelled took an interest and excelled at several sports such as baseball, hockey, and football. Self improvement on a physical and athletic level was a sort of “addiction” for Kuclo.
He began training at the Powerhouse gym in Clinton Township, NJ and competed in his first local contest at the age of 18. He placed first in the Teen division and 3rd in the Men’s Open class – proving from the start that Kuclo was destined to gain pro status in his future. Steve Kuclo eventually teamed up with Hany Rambod and has since been powering through the ranks – constantly revising himself and his body to reach champion status.
When Steve Kuclo isn’t bodybuilding he occupies his time as a fire-fighter and medic – proving that whether he is testing his body in the gym or his heroics saving others; that he is a super star in his own right.
Will He Take the Sandow?
This will be Steve Kuclo’s second Mr. Olympia competitions – the first of which he placed 14th. Today will most likely not be his year, but we are excited to see if he ranks higher than his last Olympia outing. Who knows, maybe in a few more years he will rise up to a top contender.
