Completely different, this third DVD is about motivation. Wayne & Tina Gallasch and Clarence tell inspiring stories about themselves and their motivation. Clarence explains why personal achievement is the best motivator.

|Death of Joe DeAngelis - Mr. America, Mr. Universe: 1966 - 2015 RIP.
Death of Joe DeAngelis - Mr. America, Mr. Universe: 1966 - 2015 RIP.
I just learned that 1991 Mr. America and 1991 NABBA Universe Tall Class winner, Joe DeAngelis, passed away on May 7th from the effects of kidney failure. Joe has battled serious health problems in recent years, and it is sad to lose another champion so young.
I first worked with Joe in the studio, right after the NABBA Universe in 1987. On stage Joe posed confidently and aggressively to win his many titles. Joe is justly famous for his great arms and superb legs.
The new JOE DeANGELIS PHOTO GALLERY.
Apart from oiling, tensing, and posing in tank tops and trunks, there is also a duo posing and pumping segment with USA's Mr. Universe, Jerry Scalesse. Plus contest highlights.

|TOM PLATZ - England Tour on Digital Download & death of a Universe star of the 60s!!
TOM PLATZ - The Golden Eagle England Tour now on Digital Download.
SEMINAR - WORKOUT - POSING
This was Tom's farewell English seminar tour. It was a memorable tour in every way. British cameraman Vaughan Jones went on tour with TOM PLATZ during his month long English jaunt. From the huge amount of material he shot, we present the very best from the Seminars, Workouts and Posing.
It’s perhaps better described as a very personal documentary on Tom Platz - world superstar of bodybuilding. Gutsy, charismatic, challenging, informative, and very entertaining. Not to be missed is Tom's complete posing routine.

Death of 1968 NABBA Bikini Universe winner Sylvia Hibbert.
I am sad to report the sudden passing of 1968 NABBA Bikini Universe winner Sylvia Hibbert on April 7th. Sylvia was born on March 24th, 1943. She was 72.
As Oscar said in the 1974 NABBA Universe programme…Specialty Acts: ….two great acts today, the Zeetonns – Norman and Sylvia Hibbert, recently returned from a Far East tour….etc. The Zeetonns were fabulous hand balancers. In 1998 Sylvia and Norman were both honoured by the Oscar Heidenstam Foundation (OHF) with the First Hall of Fame Award for ‘Outstanding Contribution to Physical Culture’.
In 1968 Sylvia placed 1st in the NABBA Miss Britain and also won the NABBA Bikini Universe that year. Norman was also a long-time competitor and was NABBA UK secretary from 1991 to 1997.
I have the Zeetonns in just one of my videos, titled "1974 & 1976 NABBA Universes Revisited". If you are interested in seeing their wonderful act plus more from these NABBA Universe shows, you can find them in the 1974 & 1976 NABBA UNIVERSES Digital Download, and also on DVD, V-163DVD.

Mike & Ray Mentzer: In The Gym - now on Digital Download.
The awesome Mentzer brothers, fuelled by their intense rivalry, show what they can do when they pump iron together at the gym. Filmed in an LA gym late at night after closing time, they blast their way through their display workout routines with heavy weights. Although not the super heavy weights often used by Mike, this is the only known footage of them training together.
Next day we all head for Venice Beach where Ray Mentzer oils, pumps and poses in a fantastic solo presentation, for the final 15 minutes of the video. Some classic duo poses from this beach session are seen in the Photo Gallery.
See the MIKE & RAY MENTZER PHOTO GALLERY.
As mentioned above, this film was shot on silent super 8 film, but we do get to hear Mike speak. Mike recorded a TRAINING SEMINAR that was sold on cassette tape. This seminar was later licensed to GMV from Muscle Media 2000 to be used as part of the soundtrack of this video.
This is extremely rare and valuable video footage for us, as we have no other recording of Mike's voice.
