Hawaiian Hurriclean To Sweep Through L.A.

Drug Free Icon Chris Faildo Featured Guest Poser at IMN

Los Angeles, CA: Chris Faildo, one of the greatest drug free bodybuilders in the history of the NPC, has been added to the Iron Man Magazine Naturally line-up, set for January 29, 2011, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Nicknamed “The Hawaiian Hurriclean”, the Honolulu-based Faildo said he first found out about the show after watching Lonnie Teper’s video at detailing the return of the event, being held in conjunction with the Los Angeles Fitness Expo on January 29-30.

“I was really excited to see John Balik (Iron Man Publisher) was adding a tested contest to the FitExpo,” said Faildo, “and I jumped on the phone and called Lonnie, telling him that I would love to guest pose and contribute in any way I can. I think this will be a great contest, with a lot of outstanding physiques on stage, and told him I would be honored to contribute to its success.”

Faildo, 44, won both the Lightweight and Welterweight class at the Team Universe, the NPC’s drug-tested National Championships, and took the Overall crown in 2007. He also topped the field in the Lightweight division at the USA in 1993, and finished as high as second at the World Amateur Championships.

“I still train like I’ve always have,” says Faildo, “and plan to be as good, if not better, than I was when I won the TU.”

Faildo will also be greeting fans at the Iron Man booth over the weekend, joining another NPC drug free bodybuilding champion, Dave Goodin.

“Chris not only has one of the most symetrical drug-free physiques I’ve seen in my nearly 50-year involvement with the industry, but he is also one of the greatest posers,” says Balik. “And, he’s terrific with the fans. Those who will meet him over the weekend will see what I mean.”

The official contest entry form is up at the website; competitors can either enter online, or download the form and mail directly to the magazine at 1701 Ives Avenue, Oxnard, Ca. Deadline without a late fee is January 22, 2011.

Competitors with additional questions can contact Teper at, or at 626-403-1232.
