IFBB Pro Bodybuilder
My name is Troy Tate, I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. I grew up competing in the martial arts of Judo with my father being my coach. I was a multi-state, national and international judo champion and a 2nd-degree black belt. I competed for 18 years from 1980-1998. I also was a springboard diver in high school. I started my fitness journey in 1993 and started competing in 1994 and was hooked ever since. From 1994 to 2014, I competed in 30 contests including an Ifbb pro contest which was the IFBB Phoenix Europa in 2014. I placed 8th in the Bodybuilding 212 division out of 25 professional athletes. My biggest passion, which completely overwhelms and gives more gratitude than anything was being a trainer. I started training clients since 1995, for 25 years, I’ve been helping people change their lives with getting in shape, getting healthy and also have been working with competitive athletes who compete in bodybuilding, powerlifting and judo.
