The story of a bodybuilder who longs to be respected for his mind.
Mike Zorillo, a small town Ohio champion bodybuilder with a genius
IQ, journeys to the Mecca of bodybuilding, Los Angeles, determined to
beat his nemesis, Jake Steel, with natural science instead of
steroids. Far from home, he's confronted by a gym culture of freaks,
juicers and Hollywood wannabes. As he pursues his dream, he's also
persecuted by the world's largest sports nutrition company, an entity
that's hell-bent on destroying him. Against all odds, the honest and
driven bodybuilder resolves to win the prestigious "Mr. West Coast"
competition as a way to prove himself and his ideas to the world.
Strong, Driven, & Beautiful THE WOMEN OF "NO PAIN, NO GAIN"
Strong women are often overlooked or even looked down upon for being "too
masculine" in strength-and-fitness circles, where men are usually the brightest
stars. But in "No Pain, No Gain," women have a shine all their own that isn't
overshadowed by muscular males.
"No Pain, No Gain" features several women who are strong in mind, body and
spirit. Accomplished stage and screen actress Kim Travis portrays a ruthless
sports-nutrition company executive trying to dominate the fitness world.
