This month we present a guest editorial, an homage to a great athlete, bodybuilder and Iron Man cover man, Terry Robinson, by George and Tuesday Coates. 

I was first introduced to Terry Robinson by Bill Pearl and Leo Stern in the late 1960s, and I was immediately impressed by his appearance and friendly demeanor. His enthusiasm and zest for life were infectious and always drew a crowd. As the years rolled by, we became firm friends.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1916, Terry was a natural athlete and won honors in track and field, baseball, football and swimming while in high school. Later he won the New York Police League Golden Gloves featherweight boxing title. After earning a degree from the Chiropractic Institute of New York, he rented a portion of George Bothner’s famous Manhattan Gym, where in addition to chiropractic services, he became a personal trainer to many show business personalities, including two of the greatest ever songwriters, Cole Porter and Lorenz Hart.

Terry served in the United States Army in World War II and as a staff sergeant was sent to the South Pacific to establish physical-training programs and conduct classes in deadly hand-to-hand combat. He also set up rehabilitation programs for the wounded. It seemed that Terry was destined to help people, which he did all of his long life.
