Many of you may not know the fascinating CHRISTIAN LOBAREDE story. Here is a little background on him.
Christian was born in Concepcion in the south of Chile. He has always lived in Chile, South America; it is his home, and he would never live anywhere else. He lost his father at a very young age. At the age of 10 he moved to Santiago with his mother and sister. He was later inspired as a teenager to become a famous bodybuilder after finding an old photo of his father doing a physique pose. Even though he was very poor, and inspired by this photo, Christian set out to make his own dumbbells and started weight training at the age of 15.
He studied advertising while working as an instructor in karate, physical culture and doing personal training. Christian owned 4 gyms, one of them the “Animal Gym.” Now he is owner and manager of Lobarede Nutrition and Supplements, owner of the “Body Shop”, and also trains athletes and organizes the Lobarede Classic contest.
He has a martial arts background and practiced kempo karate for many years. He competed at the national levels winning absolute champion of Chile, and also won contests in Buenos Aires, Argentina between 1994 and 1997.
In 1998 at the age of 30 he won the overall title in the Spanish-American IFBB Games in Guatemala. Winning this contest, which determines the best bodybuilder in the Spanish-speaking world, also earned him his pro card. He made his pro debut at the 1999 Toronto Pro and since then has represented his country in many professional contests in USA, Australia and Europe.
