Chris Cormier – I am the Real Deal
“YOU WILL BE INSPIRED BY IT, YOU WILL BE TOUCHED EMOTIONALLY BY IT AND IT WILL MOVE YOU.” – DAVE PALUMBO
From a tough neighbourhood in Palm Springs to the biggest stages in the sport, Chris Cormier carved out a career in the ’90s golden age of bodybuilding. In his career, Cormier competed in more than 70 pro shows, winning 8 Grand Prix and 3 Ironman Pro. He only once placed outside the top 10, and included a record six consecutive second place titles at the Arnold Classic.
He was renowned for his unique posing routines — and just as renowned for his hard-partying lifestyle. Did he sacrifice success on the bodybuilding stage for the lure of drugs, women and money? Or was he one of the hardest working bodybuilders of his era who never got his due?
Through exclusive interviews with the major players themselves and including never-before-seen footage, this DVD is a no holds-barred look at a career of triumph and despair. It is filled with huge successes and massive regrets, both personal and professional, making his story one of the most compelling in the history of bodybuilding.
