No Pain No Gain The Movie New Bodybuilding Movie DVD
"No Pain, No Gain" is the first bodybuilding feature film since "Pumping Iron." However, it is not a documentary, but rather a powerful, inspirational, dramatic movie -- the "Rocky" of bodybuilding.
The film tells the story of a highly intelligent former state champion
bodybuilder from small town Ohio who has become obsessed with his scientific
research and, consequently, has let his world-class physique go. He journeys
to the mecca of bodybuilding, Los Angeles, to prove himself. Determined to
reveal his new ideas to the world, the awkward yet sincere bodybuilder
realizes he has no choice but to get back in supreme shape, compete in the
ultimate "Mr. West Coast" bodybuilding competition and use his own body as
the perfect reflection of his mind's work.
Amidst the LA-freaks, Hollywood wannabes, and outrageous gym culture of Los
Angeles, the now determined bodybuilder struggles to preserve an integrity
of the mind, body, and spirit that is so apparently void in this strange new
land. Pitted against steroid-taking competitors and the biggest
sports-nutrition company in the world, he is fighting against odds and
enemies who want to destroy him. Searching for validity, recognition, and
truth, he befriends a quirky computer genius and a kickboxing goddess, who
help one another realize what has been missing from their lives. In the end,
they discover that balance in life, similar to a well-balanced and sculpted
physique, is the ultimate achievement.
"The cinematic heir apparent to Pumping Iron."
